In terms of location and quality features, this super-sized apartment - it has 257sqm of living space - is being touted as an alternative family home to a Victorian redbrick in Dublin 4 or 6.

Instead of a garden, there's a large south-facing terrace for eating out of doors. Inside, the apartment has high ceilings, a light-filled interior and open-plan layout. Arranged over two floors, the accommodation comprises a large entrance hallway with guest lavatory, open-plan living room, a double-height, triple- aspect lounge and a state-of-the-art Miele kitchen, all of which open on to the wraparound terrace.
At the lower level, there are three double bedrooms. The master has a wet-room en-suite and walk-in wardrobe, and there is also a utility room and family bathroom. There is a full concierge service, and the penthouse comes with two designated parking spaces.
