Stocking up on the Dublin cityscape from penthouse apartment in D16
20 Airpark House, D16 €395k
From the top floor of the Airpark House apartment building at Stocking Lane in Rathfarnham, Dublin 16, you can see clear across the city skyline - north to Poolbeg and east and south to Dublin Bay.
Airpark House is also in a handy spot in case you ever get tired of gazing over Dublin and feel the need to escape the capital altogether.
As the crow flies the M50 is less than 50 metres from the apartment block, although it will take you around seven minutes to drive over to Junction 12.
There are 20 apartments in the building and Apartment Number 20 is a penthouse. It's dual-aspect, which means it makes the very most of its views, with balconies off the living room and the two bedrooms.
The living room doubles as a dining room and has a wood floor and a big window with French double doors opening onto the balcony with its spectacular views.
The kitchen is walled off in a corner of the room and reached through an archway. It has a tiled floor and has wall and floor cabinets and integrated appliances.
The main bedroom has built-in wardrobes and doors to the south-western balcony, and its en suite has a walk-in shower.
The second bedroom isn't en suite but it also has built-in wardrobes and balcony access.
The main bathroom has a bath.
The apartment's floor area comes to 1,203 sq ft in total.
A service charge applies, which stands at €1,200 a year at present, and the apartment comes with two designated parking spaces.
For public transport, the No15B bus stops down the street and will convey you north through Rathmines and Aungier Street to the Grand Canal Dock.
Apartment No20 is for sale for €395,000 with Savills Central Dublin (01) 663 4300.
