Number 10 The Aston Building, an outstanding property in Dublin 4, has just been launched onto the market, and is already causing a stir. A penthouse apartment on the site of the old Virgin Megastore building, the property has been completely renovated, with design by the legendary Andrèe Putman.
The apartment extends over 3282 square feet, spread over two levels, and the ceilings go up to heights over 10ft. Original Georgian windows, pillars and other significant features have been retained, while Ms Putman has been busy putting her signature trademark on the fixtures and fittings: unusually everything you see on a viewing comes with the flat, including her playful ‘A Vous de Jouer’ mirror, one of fewer than 20 ever made.
The main living area is flooded with light, and is much larger than most entire apartments, with three Georgian windows providing stunning views down onto the River Liffey. The kitchen is also filled with natural light, and is at the heart of, and yet discreet from, the main living area, which is divided into a central living area, a dining area and a cosy home entertainment zone.
The master bedroom, dressing room and bathroom are in a private space which has been designed with tranquillity and space in mind, and the guest bedrooms on the level below in the west wing are also fitted to extremely high standards.
Savills Hamilton Osborne King are offering the property for in excess of ?4m (£2m), and one can see further images and information on this apartment on its dedicated website www.10theastonbuilding.com/.
