Penthouse

This morning, someone in Dublin woke up 175,000,000 million euro, and wow gosh, we're sooooo delighted for them.

While we couldn't be more pleased that someone other than ourselves is now mega rich, we couldn't help but ponder on what we would purchase as our first big Euromillions spend. 

A luxurious holiday? A flash car? A mad expensive ostrich skin hand bag? Nah – top of the list has to be growing that property portfolio (or just starting one). We've been creeping around the internet, searching for our perfect habitats in Dublin (seeing as that is where the winning lotto ticket was purchased) and we have compiled a list of our faves that we will probably never be able to afford bu hey, it's fun to fantasize: 

1. Bayview, 17 Sutton Castle, Sutton, Dublin 13, North Dublin City – €1,250,000

You could buy around 140 of these stunning houses for your Euromillions fee.

On the market by Gallagher Quigley, this iconic 19th century mansion with sprawling grounds and a sea view is the perfect family home. It even has a spiral staircase leading from the garden to the exterior terrace where you have a gorge view of Dublin Bay.

This period home was once owned by the Jameson family – so it comes with some glam history as well as walk in wardrobes.

2. Horse Island, Roaring Water Bay, Schull, Co. Cork – €6,750,000

Where else is there to go when you want peace and quiet to count all your money? Why, your own private island of course. 

Now, we know we said we would keep all of our homes to the Dublin region, but with all those millions, chartering a yacht from Dublin bay to Schull shouldn't be too much of an issue. 

The island comes with a STUNNING main home, as well as six guest houses, so it's perfect for family to visit once you've had your fill of solitary island living. The views are breathtaking, and you could probably bride a Deliveroo guy to get the boat over with your order if you tip him well enough. 

3. Monte Alverno, Sorrento Road, Dalkey, South Co. Dublin – €7,500,000

The stand out feature of the house has got to be the stunning figure-of-eight shaped outdoor swimming pool that languishes invitingly in the back garden.

Other external features include an all weather floodlit tennis court and a Chinese garden that has its own waterfall and lily pond.

South facing bedrooms give a glorious sea view, and plant lovers can rejoice in their element with a chilled martini in the jungle of a conservatory. 

4. Arkendale, 6 Arkendale Road, Dalkey, South Co. Dublin – €1,950,000

This Georgian gaff had us shook from the very first picture. Sprawling high ceilings with original stucco work and big bay windows make this home the ideal modem house with original character. 

Currently it has some very interesting wallpaper and pastel carpet choices, a nod to the original design of the home. 

The feature staircase leads to the upstairs where there are five generous bedrooms, while downstairs resides a snooker and cinema room.

5St Georges, St Georges Avenue, Killiney, South Co. Dublin – €9,250,000

This GORGE property honestly has a whiff of Hogwarts magic about it. From the stunning turret to the stain glass windows, it's a marvel to look at. 

The home comes complete with a little church (gas) and the architecture is a nob to the Gothic revival in Ireland. 

The main bedroom has a balcony with panoramic sea views, and everything about it is just magic.

It's certainly no secret that the Kardashain/Jenners live a lavish lifestyle, but just wait until you see the place Kendall and Kylie stayed in for New York Fashion Week.

The duo were the talk of the city during the time they spent there, and according to E! News, the reality stars (and their friends) called an extravagant penthouse their home.

Yep… an extravagant penthouse that costs $26.5 million (€24m) – but of course, they didn't have to pay a cent for it.

It was given to them for free by real estate broker Andrew Azoulay and it features nine bedrooms, five baths, two powder rooms, seven terraces, a wine bar as well as all the usual rooms a house should have (we're thinking kitchen here, but they probably didn't use that).

Jealous? Yep… so are we.

With Demi Moore putting her incredible three storey, 15-room apartment on the market for a cool €70million – Bono will shortly be getting a brand new neighbour.

Not the U2 frontman will be forced to rub shoulders with a stranger; the penthouse properties are located in the famed San Remo building and boast wraparound terraces, 650sq metres of opulent living space overlooking Central Park, and maximum privacy and security.

Bono currently has ownership of the North Tower, which he purchased in 2003 from Steve Jobs, with Ms Moore deciding to part ways with the South Tower.

The 52-year-old actress bought the residence with her former husband Bruce Willis in 1990 along with a two-bed, two-bath maisonette on the ground floor of the building – which is also included in the sale.

“I’m spending the majority of my time in my other homes, and this apartment is too magnificent not to be lived in full time,” Demi told the New York Times.

 

The maintenance fee on the penthouse alone is an astonishing €16,900 a month – but with panoramic park, river, and city views the 90-year-old building is one of the most desirable in the Big Apple.

Residents over the years include Dustin Hoffman, Tiger Woods, Diane Keaton, and Steven Spielberg – though Madonna is reported to have been rejected by the residents’ board when she tried to buy a place there back in 1985.

Bono’s actress daughter Eve Hewson (23) is currently filming in New York, while the rocker himself has also spent considerable time across the pond in recent months, recuperating following a bike accident in the city that needed surgery. The Hewson family also have abodes in the south of France and Dalkey in Dublin.

Demi Moore was married to Bruce Willis from 1987 to 2000 and it is believed to have been given the property following their divorce. When she was married to Ashton Kutcher the pair also made regular use of the apartment, but she hasn't lived there recently and it seems the actress is now eager to cut ties.
