This 3-bedroom apartment in Dun Laoghaire is on the market for a cool €1.75 million
05th Sep 2020
This third-floor apartment for sale in Dun Laoghaire is not your run-of-the-mill flat. Beautifully restored and cleverly modernised, it has sea views to boot.
Located on the seafront overlooking the harbour, a former Georgian hotel (opened in 1832) has been converted into the Anglesea, twelve high-spec, boutique apartments.
The Tuskar, located on the top floor and stretching the full depth of the building over 222 square metres still boasts many of its original features, including some magnificent cornicing, marble fireplaces and restored sash windows with shutters to maintain the space’s charm.
The grand staircase in the building has been retained, along with the addition of the lift, bringing you to the third floor, shared between just three apartments. Through the front door of the Tuskar and a short flight of steps leads you into the open-plan kitchen/living/dining space facing the seafront with seven beautiful windows capturing the view.
The L-shaped kitchen with a large island is covered in Silestone and all integrated appliances are top-of-the-line Neff. Timber floors run the length of this room, from the dining area at its centre to the living space, where a grand marble fireplace sits to one end, functional and framed by two sash windows.
Back in the central hallway are a study, bathroom and utility, as well as a cosy library room with a private wrap-around balcony. South-east facing it gets plenty of natural sunlight and with a glass corner and door, this is sure to be a frequently used room.
The master suite has a large ensuite and an equally large walk-in wardrobe. Two further double bedrooms can be found beyond the smaller living space, both with their own ensuite bathrooms and built-in wardrobes.
The apartment also comes with two underground car parking spaces, in a secure private lot. Would you pay €1.75 million for it?
