DescriptionThe Hollybrook Development is arguably one of Dublin's most exclusive apartment developments. Built circa 2002, this boutique apartment development comprises of just 48 luxuriously appointed apartments and penthouses built with a distinctive Edwardian style façade in keeping with the architectural style of its environs. Set within a gated development of manicured lawns the entrance forecourt has a granite cobble lock driving apron to the front of the block. The entrance hallway with doric columns and sandstone steps to the reception area provide an understated formality and give rise to the reception hallway. The hallway and guest lobby is sumptuously appointed with marble flooring and complemented by walnut panelled walls in keeping with the overall pristine and opulent nature of the development.
No. 36 is quite possibly one of the best penthouses within the development enjoying the wonderful balance of spacious accommodation combining it with a south west facing rooftop terrace which enjoys privacy, an enviable orientation and stunning views of the Dublin mountains.
The hall door opens to the entrance hallway and first floor of the duplex. The hall gives rise to the sleeping accommodation. The main bedroom has two sash windows which enjoy magnificent views of the landscaped gardens and water features. It is particularly spacious with built-in wardrobes and complete with a bathroom ensuite. There are two further double bedrooms at this level. The larger of the two enjoys a dressing room and bathroom ensuite. The slightly smaller third bedroom would equally suit as a study to meet todays' increasing and popular trend of working from home. In addition there is a family shower room with Guest WC.
The stairs gives rise to the large, bright and spacious open plan living / dining / drawing room area. This impressive room, with extra ceiling height of 9'8” approx., has a classic stone fireplace with slate hearth and coal effect gas fire. To one side of this living space there are two sash windows with views of the central manicured gardens and on the opposite side there is a glazed wall with French doors to the patio terrace. The glazed wall ensures there is plenty of light at all times of the day. Double doors lead to the Family /TV room. This room also enjoys French doors to the patio terrace as well as double doors to the kitchen / breakfast room. The kitchen by Dalkey Design is hand painted with polished granite worktop.
No. 36 Hollybrook is a superb and elegant penthouse. The combination of space and style creates the uncompromising lifestyle solution for those looking to downsize or indeed as a luxurious and secure family home or a lock and leave Dublin base.
The communal gardens have been designed with great care and have matured well over the years. Walkways intersect linear water features whose turquoise accented tiles provide colour pop and a destinctly Mediterranean feel to the overall setting. Neatly clipped low buxus and copper beech hedging are offset by pebbled pathways and seasonal plantings all within a delightfully mature sylvan setting. There are designated barbeque and seating areas for the use of residents. The overall design is both considered and inviting.
Exceptionally well located in the heart of old Foxrock approx.. 12km from Stephen's Green and only a short walk from Foxrock Village. For more extensive shopping facilities, Dunnes Stores at Cornelscourt and the Park Retail centre are close by.
