If lofty living takes your fancy, this penthouse apartment in Golden Lane comes with views of the Dublin City skyline.

Overlooking Chancery Lane and located a short walk from St Stephen’s Green, the Royal College of Surgeons and Trinity College, it has two private terraces from where you can see some of the capital’s iconic landmarks, including St Patrick’s Cathedral and Dublin Castle.

At 1,744 sq ft, it’s a good deal bigger than the average three-bed semi, but there’s nothing average about this luxury pad next to the Radisson Blu Hotel in the heart of the south city centre.

Built in 2005 by Rhatigan Developers, the duplex unit, which is arranged over the fourth and fifth floors of the property, had a new gas boiler, solid wood flooring and new kitchen added in 2021.

The open-plan dining/sitting room

Off the fourth-floor entrance hallway are three double bedrooms (one en suite) and a main bathroom.

Stairs lead up to the living accommodation, including a lounge/dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows and a door to a terrace overlooking the city and the Wicklow Mountains.

Also at this level is the kitchen, a guest WC and a living room with a wall-mounted gas fire and a door leading out to the second terrace. The BER is B1.

The apartment comes with one designated underground parking space.

It’s a five-minute stroll to Grafton Street and if you prefer whizzing around town on two wheels, there’s a handy bicycle shed in the communal grounds.

The annual service charge is €2,450.
