Harbouring uninterrupted views
8 Creggan, Bailey View €645k
Bailey View, a well-established apartment scheme in Dalkey, Co Dublin, could probably not be better situated, standing as it does between Harbour Road and the sea.
A couple of hundred metres due north-west is Bullock Harbour, for a spot of boating and fishing. Dalkey DART station is about a kilometre away to the southeast. Elsewhere from north to south, as far as the eye can see, is the Irish Sea.
The inhabitants of Bailey View have it all to themselves, as it's a gated community. And there's pedestrian access to the shoreline through a communal patio area, so if the residents get along, they might enjoy some pleasant afternoons together.
Number 8 Creggan is a ground-floor apartment in Bailey View, and is described by the selling agent as "probably the best seafront apartment in this development", with uninterrupted - and uninterruptible - sea views. Even for a two-bedroom apartment it's a roomy spot oo, at 893 sq ft. The two bedrooms are to the left of the entrance hall, with the bathroom between them, and the back bedroom has a corner window with views of the water.
To the right of the entrance hall is the kitchen, a good-sized room (about 14ft6 square) which is fully fitted and has a bay window.
Glazed double doors lead from the kitchen into the living room at the back of the property.
Against one wall there's a sandstone fireplace, and on the opposite wall there's a picture window overlooking the bay. And at an angle in the corner of the room there's a set of glass doors giving onto a balcony, where you can breathe the sea air.
The apartment comes with designated parking and the annual management fee is €2,450. The agent is Janet Carroll (01) 288 2020 and the asking price is €645,000.
