Looking to capture a little bit of Georgian architectural majesty but can’t handle the size of a four-storey period home? This stunning Dublin city apartment for sale on Mount Street Lower has all the trimmings of Georgian grace with modern comforts.
This two-bedroom apartment over 153 square metres has the sash windows, stunning fireplaces and soaring volumes you’d expect of a Georgian building, but it has also been finished to an impeccable standard by its current owners. Located just off Merrion Square, the apartment overlooks the front of the building from the second floor, which has an attractive lobby entrance and a private basement car parking space and storage facility included, as well as a lift.
Within the apartment, on the market with Lisney for €1.1 million, the living room, dining room and kitchen look onto the handsome Mount Street Lower. The living room flows into the dining room and is centred around a magnificent stone fireplace. The apartment has been beautifully furnished by its current owners, really giving you a feel for the modern grandeur of the home with plantation shutters for added privacy.
The kitchen sits just beyond, discreetly tucked away but ample in size with its own view over the streetscape. It’s a contemporary working kitchen with high-spec Miele appliances, including Miele Nespresso machine, two ovens, hob and washer/dryer. This place is ideal if you enjoy cooking but don’t want the aroma to permeate around your home. A utility is also located just off the kitchen.
At the end of the long entrance hall, which splits the apartment between living and sleeping spaces, is a family bathroom with polished granite countertops and a large bath. On the more secluded, south-facing side of the building overlooking the outdoor communal gardens are the bedrooms.
Both are sizeable double rooms with ample built-in storage. The master suite not only has a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite shower room, but it’s also got a large and beautiful south-facing balcony.
The building has a shared outdoor space and is within a short walking distance of Stephen's Green, Grand Canal Dock DART station and the Luas on Dawson Street. Management fees for the building are around €5,500 a year.
