Upon entering no.38, it is clear to see that the current owners had a clear vision in transforming this apartment into the chic home that it is today. The entrance hall features a modern glass staircase with a mirrored backdrop cleverly disguising the built-in storage to the rear which houses the utility area which is plumbed for a washing machine and dryer. The main bedroom is at the rear with a dual aspect taking in views over the internal courtyard and Christchurch Cathedral and is complete with an ensuite shower room. The second bedroom is as equally spacious as the main bedroom, while the main bathroom is of generous proportions.

The first floor balcony is accessed via the living room and measures 18 sq.m / 193 sq.ft (approx.). It is the ideal location for the morning coffee while taking in the views of Christchurch Cathedral, with mature flowerbeds and laid in artificial grass while ambient lighting creates a wonderful atmosphere. A spiral staircase leads to the main roof garden which measures 40 sq.m / 430 sq.ft (approx.). The private roof garden atop this stunning apartment is one of the finest examples of its kind in the city. The current owners have created a unrivalled outdoor space with uninterrupted views across Dublin City Centre. There is a built-in BBQ area that also features a dining bar, while a hot tub sits neatly under a pergola. The garden is finished with a wooden decking and is laid in artificial grass. Mature flowerbeds surround the garden and are complete with ambient up lighting set amongst the plants and shrubbery, while strip lighting at floor level runs all the way around the garden. There are wonderful views across the city which change as the day turns to night and the city becomes a a stunning backdrop full of colourful light. The complex sits on the grounds of Music Hall - (the large gates into the central court yard are the original entrance to Music Hall). On April 13th, 1742, while visiting Dublin George Frideric Handel first performed what would become his famous the religious oratorio the Messiah in the Musical Hall on Fishamble Street. The event is also marked with the modern sculpture of a conductor above organ pipes, as seen in the central courtyard. This distinct area of Temple Bar lies beyond Parliament Street, tucked away from the more lively tourist side. It is often referred to as the Old City and is far more quiet and relaxed area of Temple Bar. Throughout the cobbled streets you will find a weekly Irish craft market on Cows Lane, the Smock Alley Theatre, the Gaiety School of Acting plus several book shops, cafes and bakeries - including the popular Queen of Tarts. St Stephen s Green and The Grafton Street area are a short stroll from the apartment. The Green & Red Luas lines are both within a short walk, as well as an array of Dublin Bus routes and several Dublin Bike stations. The IFSC & Grand Canal Dock are also within walking distance.
