Rhatigan Real Estate is delighted to present this stunning two-bedroom apartment in the illustrious development of Hollybrook, Foxrock. It is impossible to underestimate the level of care and attention that went into what you see today. Hollybrook was very cleverly and carefully thought through when built in 2002, far beyond what other developments would even aspire to now, twenty years later.
Set on Brighton Road, only a stones' throw from the iconic Foxrock village, this gated development combines privacy, safety and discretion with an incredible level of practicality. Those who have enjoyed the area and may live in a larger home may not wish to forego all that Foxrock has to offer and as a result, this is a superb option. The building is serviced via lifts as well as apartment sizing that rivals many 3 or 4 bedroom homes elsewhere, there is nothing "small' about how Hollybrook does business! Equally, those seeking a tranquil space or bolthole near the city will notice how well maintained the development is throughout and may come and go whether based abroad or indeed in other areas of Ireland.
The owner of number 45 not only benefits from two parking bays and additional storage space underground (akin to attic space in a house), residents also enjoy access to a private gym, sauna facilities and gardens that are beautifully kept. Combine this with a superb 24-hour concierge service that maintains a very high level of client care and security.
Hollybrook is quite simply, unrivalled.
Upon entering the development via the secure electric gates, the 24-hour concierge can buzz you into the building. The foyer is more like the Plaza or Fitzpatricks Hotels in New York City, with rich wooden panelling. Even the postboxes match the aesthetic of the building, which is not something other buildings would have thought to do, but it makes all the difference. The concierge desk is also located here. Once in the inner hall, there is a staircase to the right and a lift beside it. All the corridors are beautifully panelled with soft lighting leading the way to each apartment.
The apartment itself is set on the top floor and each apartment is well-spaced along the corridor. Laminate flooring adds a brightness to the hall, as well as being hardwearing.
Living Room / Dining Room
An expansive space that can cater for larger furniture as well as a dining table, without feeling claustrophobic. A gas fire sits on the near wall and is framed via a classically styled mantel. Two Velux windows provide for plenty of natural light and come with motorised switches. The laminate floor in this space provides for continuity.
A clever rethink of the kitchen space has made a superb difference to the heart of number 45. Setting the partition wall back and fitting a custom island keeps the spaces separate but maximise light as well as a feeling of connectedness when entertaining or catching up after a day in the city. Fitted wall and floor units all finished in a rich wood create an earthy warmth and match the custom island perfectly. Neff hob, oven, microwave, integrated dishwasher. Integrated fridge/freezer, extractor fan and stainless steel sink. To the side of the kitchen is a utility closet that holds the washing machine.
This room was designed by a dreamer, someone who wanted bedtime to be an occasion. This room has a large en suite that is the same size as bedrooms in other properties. Classic styling provides for warming tones. Step in shower, wash hand basin set into custom stone with oversized wall fitted mirror. Wall hung w/c with concealed cistern. Lovers of a hot bath, do not fear, there is one nestled in this room as well. Spotlighting and heated wall hung towel rails.
Set between the en suite and sleeping quarters with plenty of space. A fitted carpet provides for added comfort.
The bedroom has space for furniture other than simply a bed and it works perfectly. Velux with motorised switch is also a feature in this room. The fitted carpet finishes this space nicely.
Fitted carpet, built-in wardrobe and Velux window with motorised switch.
This is set off the hall and is perfect for guests. Step in shower, wash hand basin set in custom stone with rustic floor tiling.
To the front is a large sliding electric gate that is under the watchful eye of the concierge as well as an automated pedestrian gate. The building itself is well maintained with a paved front drive. There are gardens to the rear with beautifully landscaped greenery that frame stunning feature fountains in the centre. Garden furniture is strategically placed for residents and visitors to enjoy on those warmer days.
Number 45 has two allocated parking bays as well as a fabulous storage space. This is a superb addition to what the apartment already offers and will suit those storing house or hobby items without imposing on their living space. This will be a big plus for those who golf, cycle or hoard!
