Peek inside this cute €495k Temple Bar penthouse apartment with rooftop terrace
20 Craneyard €495k
An apartment in Temple Bar, Dublin 2, might not be everybody's idea of heaven, but if you're a young man or woman about town with plenty of money to spare, the idea has its merits.
For one thing, there's culture galore including the Irish Film Institute, Meeting House Square, the Temple Bar Gallery and the Project Arts Centre. There are at least two food markets and the whole neighbourhood is buzzing with restaurants. And then of course there's the nightlife. Temple Bar is party central, especially for tourists.
For all that, it is a residential area too, consisting mostly of apartments, one of which is the Craneyard building at Crane Lane, between Dame Street and Essex Street.
Apartment Number 20 is a penthouse apartment in the block, and the top floor is the fourth floor, so you're high above street level.
It comes with a roof terrace, so you can escape to some seclusion even in the thick of Dublin's so-called 'cultural quarter'.
It's had a recent refurbishment so it's ready to move into. There are two bedrooms, one either side of the entrance hall, and the main bedroom has an en-suite.
Passing the family bathroom on the right, you reach the main living room - a sitting room and dining room measuring just under 20ft by 14ft, with two sets of sliding glass doors giving onto the roof terrace outside. One of the bedrooms also gives access to the terrace.
Off this is the kitchen, which measures roughly 11ft6 by 9ft and has had all new appliances fitted.
The floor area in total comes to 807 sq ft.
There's no parking space going with the apartment but you can add a designated space for another €25,000. The annual management fee is €1,650.
It's for sale for €495,000 with DNG Central (01) 679 4088.
