Sunshine all day long in D18
Apt 12 Wingfield €375k
You can follow the sun around from this dual-aspect apartment in the Wingfield development in Stepaside, Dublin 18.
Apartment Number 12 is on the corner of one of the blocks and has not one but two balconies. One is facing south, benefiting from day-long sunshine (when there is sunshine) and views of the Dublin mountains. The other one looks west, for when you fancy an evening meal or a cocktail outdoors.
The apartment is on the second floor of the first of three blocks as you enter the development from the Enniskerry Road, with landscaped grounds around it. It measures 834 sq ft, making it bigger than many starter homes around town.
The space includes two double bedrooms, both to the right of the entrance hall where there's also a storage cupboard. The master bedroom has an en-suite with a walk-in shower, and also off the entrance hall there's a main bathroom with a bath and overhead shower.
Straight ahead is the main open-plan living area - a dual-aspect kitchen, dining room and sitting room, with doors on two of the walls leading out to the balconies.
The Wingfield development is right beside Stepaside golf course, although you'll have to walk around there by road, which will take about 10 minutes or so. The village itself is about a kilometre away in the opposite direction. To get to the M50 (Junction 15) will take about seven minutes in the car. For days out in the mountains, Enniskerry is about seven kilometres away to the south.
Wingfield was built in the early 2000s. There's a lift in the apartment block and the unit comes with secure parking. Management fees come to €1,995 a year.
The agent is Property Partners O'Brien Swaine in Dundrum (01) 298 8508 and the asking price is €375,000.
