Apartment-living suits some people more than others. If you love being in the heart of the city, aren't keen on gardening, and/or want beautiful views from a height, penthouse living might be for you. Penthouse apartments typically differ from other units within a building, both in their design and features. Some include a balcony, others have additional bedrooms or living space. In some cases, they ooze luxury. Below are three examples of dream penthouse apartments available to buy in Dublin City right now.
