This is truly a breath-taking vista with an everchanging horizon, enjoying morning sunrises, transformative skies throughout the day, and moon rises at night with the spectacular effect of the city lights twinkling like stars as dusk sets in. From this exclusive setting the property boasts the best of both worlds; turn left from the hall door and you are just 4km from Dundrum Shopping Centre and turn right, you are just meters from accessing the most superb scenic amenity of Three Rock Mountain.
