Former British Embassy building now home to €645k D4 apartments 645
Merrion Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4
This prestigious address is launching its second phase this weekend after the first sold out quickly. Ten apartments are being released to market from €645,000.
The building was once home to the British Embassy, familiar to Dubliners and converted in 1999. They may be at the upper end of budget for apartment seekers, but money proved no barrier to the 24 sold since February.
There are one- and two-bed versions from 1,021-1,684 sq ft and interiors are finished to a high standard with solid maple kitchens, polished black granite worktops and Neff appliances. Each has three bathrooms - one off each of the bedrooms and a guest WC off the hall.
Kitchen/dining areas lead into sitting rooms and there is plenty of landscaping in the grounds with extensive ironmongery on balcony railings and gates. Period features have been restored with detailing on skirting, architraves and interior woodwork. The exterior is redbrick with cut-stone detailing.
Each unit comes with at least one car park space and some with two. There is an on-site concierge to cater for residents' requirements and a nice walled courtyard with plantings, statuary and water features. Management fees will be in the range of €6,000 p.a.
Locally, it is bang in the centre of Ballsbridge with its shops, restaurants, the RDS, and of course, there'll be no need to find parking for the nearby Aviva Stadium on match days.
Viewing is by appointment.
