This dream Georgian apartment in Ballsbridge is on the market for €650,000
13th Oct 2020
With huge windows, high ceilings and a beautifully styled interior, we’ll be day-dreaming about this apartment for quite some time.
Situated on Pembroke road, just a short stroll from the city centre, 10 Pembroke Manor is ideal for those who want a city pad with character.
Located on the first floor of this Georgian building, traditionally the grandest level, with the most natural light and the main reception rooms, it’s a world away from the aesthetic of the modern apartment, with their minimal finishes.
Here, magnificent sash windows ensure the spaces are bright, while ceiling moulding, picture rails, marble fireplaces and original floorboards leave you in no doubt about the history of this home.
The drawing room is perhaps the most impressive. Its generous size fits both a sofa for relaxing, as well as a dining table for entertaining, while the dark floorboards and teal walls create a rich, layered feel.
The two sash windows also allow light to pour in during the day, only emphasising the feeling of space the high ceilings afford.
Double doors from this room lead to the beautiful bedroom, which has equally grand proportions. It too boasts original floorboards and a marble fireplace, as well as a large sash window, and would be a wonderfully luxurious spot to retire to after a long day.
The bedroom has an ensuite with a raised walk-in shower, a wall mounted Duravit wash hand basin, and Italian porcelain floor tiles.
The kitchen is situated at the back of the apartment, and although compact, is well fitted-out. Integrated appliances help to streamline the space, while granite worktops and splashback are a durable choice that are sure to last for years to come. There is also a guest WC adjacent to the kitchen. Click through our gallery above for the full tour of this apartment.
