The Sunday Independent l 4 of a kind…Penthouses – Deluxe in the Docklands

The Sunday Independent, Sunday, March 12th 2017

Located immediately to the east of the International Financial Services Centre, at the epicentre of current North Docklands development, is the luxury, waterside Spencer Dock apartment complex.

Set within an award-winning landscape, the apartments feature floor to ceiling windows and top-of-the-range contemporary kitchens and bathrooms as standard. Last year, seven of the penthouse apartments were launched for sale. Carefully planned in stepped blocks, these duplex penthouses benefit from terrific light and views.

In terms of location and quality features, this super-sized apartment – it has 257sqm of living space – is being touted as an alternative family home to a Victorian redbrick in Dublin 4 or 6. Certainly, teenagers and college-age off-spring will relish the city centre location, and their parents may make substantial savings on taxi fares too.

Instead of a garden, there’s a large south-facing terrace for eating out of doors. Inside, the apartment has high ceilings, a light-filled interior and open-plan layout. Arranged over two floors, the accommodation comprises a large entrance hallway with guest lavatory, open-plan living room, a double-height, triple-aspect lounge and a state-of-the-art Miele kitchen, all of which open on to the wraparound terrace.

At the lower level, there are three double bedrooms. The master has a wet-room en-suite and walk-in wardrobe, and there is also a utility room and family bathroom. There is a full concierge service, and the penthouses comes with two designated parking spaces.
