Modern builds with inverted living space
Grosvenor Manor, Rathmines, Dublin 6
The nine ultra-contemporary homes on the private grounds behind 29-43 Grosvenor Place, just off Leinster Road, are in stark contrast to the faded Victorian red-bricks associated with the rest of Rathmines.
There are just two of these sleekly designed properties left, namely three-bed townhouses priced at €700,000.
This mix of high-end apartments and townhouses, built by the Kavanagh brothers from New Generation Homes, was launched at the start of July. Four of the apartments, which ranged in price from €399,000 to €425,000, have since gone sale agreed, leaving just numbers 7 and 8 Grosvenor Manor up for grabs.
The modern complex, aimed at the executive market, comprises three two-storey blocks that vary in style and are laid out around generous communal gardens. All of the exteriors share the same theme - clean white lines with cut-stone neutral render and charcoal trim.
The two townhouses still for sale have a living space of 1,331 sq ft.
They have inverted living spaces, so the three bedrooms and the bathroom are on the ground floor, and the first floor is home to the kitchen, living/dining room, a WC, utility and storage. Patio doors open from kitchen/living area to a terrace.
The nearest Luas stops are at Cowper and Beechwood while there are myriad bus services into the city centre.
