Dalkey is always a popular location for out-of-city rentals and this two-bedroom furnished apartment is well situated on Castlepark Road, in the gated development which is Castlepark Residence, less than 1km from the pretty seaside village.

The DART station is around the same distance away.

The showpiece is a large living/dining room which has double-height picture windows and wooden floors throughout.

Although painted in clean white, there are eclectic colour accents in the funky dining chairs, echoed in the cushions on the huge L-shaped sofa and scatter chairs.

The overall look is minimalist, but comfy-modern. At 2,098 sq ft, there’s no shortage of space in this top floor unit.

The kitchen area is particularly high spec, with a full range of Miele

appliances and a quartz-topped breakfast bar with in-built sink.

There are two double bedrooms, one en-suite with a contemporary four-poster bed, which has a patio door leading out to one of the decked balconies.

A separate main bathroom and storage space completes the interior accommodation. There are two balconies, on either side of the apartment, which have access from both the living room and bedroom.

They are large enough for outdoor eating and have wicker furniture and glass balustrade.

Agent Graham Bell says: “The previous three lets have been to senior professionals.

“It would also be very suitable for a ‘local downsizer’ from one of the larger properties in the area. Access to the M50 and other motorways and the airport is attractive.”

The property comes fully furnished with secure parking and a lift directly from the car park. There is a specialised underfloor heating system to keep things cosy.

Storage is provided in the basement in the form of a large garage and shed-sized secure storage cage which is handy for sports equipment or seasonal items.

Outside, the redbrick blocks are complemented with nicely kept lawns, mature trees, a small playground and walkways.

LEASE: One year
