Top let: Live in a dream penthouse in Grand Canal Dock... for just €4,000 per month
Clarion Quay, Dublin 1 - Rent: €4,000 PER MONTH
This top end two-bedroom penthouse apartment offers views over Dublin City Centre that are unrivalled. From the IFSC, 3 Arena and across the Grand Canal Dock, the tenant will enjoy all the sights from on high.
Close by is Spencer Dock Train Station, the Luas and the DART is within 15 minutes' walk. The building overlooks the River Liffey to one side, and is dual aspect.
Built as a duplex over the 7th and 8th floors of the block, this property is contemporary, with chrome, glass and wood evident as the main elements.
The central living area is fully open plan with a fitted and integrated SieMatic kitchen in hi-gloss white finish with black Montank slate detailing. It comes with the usual range of appliances, from Neff.
There is a breakfast bar but also a formal dining area with seating for six.
The ceiling in part is double-height (18ft) in atrium fashion, over the living room with floor to ceiling windows facing out also, so there is plenty of light and in this part of the city, that means day and night!
An open wood and glass staircase leads to a minstrel's gallery of sorts, where an office space has been created in the landing area.
It is quite spacious and would be ideal for anyone working from home giving an airy, rather than claustrophobic aspect to their work station. There is a Lutron intelligent lighting system and Bose sound system with wifi incorporated throughout.
There are two double bedrooms, the master is ensuite in a chocolate modern tile and walk-in wardrobe, while the main bathroom is fitted in a striking red mosaic tile with modern Philippe Stark ceramics.
However, the 'room' most likely to draw attention isn't inside at all, it is the roof terrace which is grassed and decked with scattered seating areas, a dining area and, when the al fresco eating is over, a large hot tub in which to relax and enjoy the bustling capital city lights below.
It is private and south facing, so will have sun (when it makes an appearance) all day. The area here measures over 800 sq ft, which is larger than some city apartments, so is an absolute plus in terms of the additional space it affords.
There is a designated parking space with the property which comes fully furnished in a minimalist, but comfortable style.
Agent Owen Reilly says the property is most likely suited to urban professionals - certainly the adjacent IFSC won't be short of city executives who don't fancy a commute into town.
