Location will be a strong selling point for the scheme which is within easy walking distance of Ranelagh and Donnybrook and a 30 minute stroll from St Stephens Green. For those who prefer quick access to the city centre, there is a nearby station for the Luas light rail service which will run along the rear of the site, for which there is private, gated, pedestrian access. Mount St Anne's is bounded by the grounds of Gonzaga College on one side and Alexandra College on another. It also adjoins two leafy roads, Merton Road and Richmond Avenue South.
The kitchen in this apartment is still among the best finished in any Dublin apartment block. It has Siematic wall and floor units, a stainless steel hood over the cooker and a full range of integrated electrical appliances. The bathroom and ensuite have also been completed to a high specification with attractive sanitary ware and tasteful tiling. The livingroom has floor to ceiling windows capturing wonderful views over the scheme, something which can also be enjoyed from the balcony. Both bedrooms are very spacious in size, have fitted wardrobes and the main has an ensuite off so the second bedroom may use the main bathroom exclusively.
While this apartment enjoys 2 designated car parking spaces, there are numerous visitor parkinn spaces throughout the development.
The site strategy is organised around the preservation of mature trees within a central park, which also provides the setting for the various historic structures that are located within the scheme. The central open space, comprising 4 acres of landscaped parkland, is enclosed by the apartment buildings. An attractive, tree lined avenue runs to the east of the apartments, which connects to a series of streets and courtyards which are defined by terraced housing and duplexes.
The protected Victorian convent buildings were extended and adapted to provide residential dwellings, whilst the late Georgian style Milltown House, and the original Chapel were converted for office use.
A total of 650 units are accommodated in Mount St Annes, which has become a benchmark for successful housing developments in Ireland.
