#169 is a well-presented first floor apartment attractively laid out with a nice open-plan kitchen/living/dining space filled with natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows and a glazed door to the large balcony looking out over the water feature in the courtyard below. This is one of the few apartments to benefit from both a balcony and a dining space in the bay window area. There is a separate laundry room off the hall freeing up space in the shaker style kitchen for cooking and storage. The double bedroom is quite spacious with plenty of room for a large double bed as well as the fitted wardrobe, a desk and a dressing table if required. When the windows are open, the peaceful sound of flowing water invites you to relax.
The gardens in The Island are beautifully laid out with riverside walks, entertainment platforms, and a lawn area with pretty views of the river serenely reflecting a weeping willow in the still waters above the weir. The old mill stream flows through a lock gate creating a peaceful channel for the ducks and nesting swans. The water flow in the River Liffey at this point is very well controlled by four upstream dams, ensuring that there are no watery surprises in the underground parking, even in the wettest of weather.
As well as the main gate there is pedestrian access across a footbridge from the centre of Chapelizod Village which boasts a long and varied history combined with a vibrant day and night life. This pedestrian route continues across the village square and up Park Lane to the wide open spaces of The Phoenix Park. If you dream of owning a dog and having plenty of space for walkies, pets are permitted in this development (provided they do not cause a nuisance).
From here there is an excellent bus service to Dublin city centre and cycle/walking paths along the river bank.
This development benefits from an on-site conceirge service helping to ensure it is always well-maintained and kept under a watchful eye. There is an on-site security guard in the evenings till midnight or 2am on weekends. Being on an island it can only be accessed via a bridge, ensuring nobody can sneak in unseen (unless they get very wet).
There is extensive and securely gated underground space under the whole development. This gives room for bin storage, parking and lots of bike storage in two securely locked bike store rooms or one of the many additional bike racks.This apartment comes with one designated underground parking space with secure gated access. The assigned space is on the end of a row, giving extra width for ease of access.
Even with all this the service charge is only €1500 per annum.
The Island and the sister complex in The Weir were well built 2003-2005 by the highly respected development company Danniger. In total there are 250 apartments in the development. It replaced an old industrial complex on an island in the river formed by a mill stream starting at the weir. This stream was dug to power an 18th century mill. The footbridge dates from around this time. Archaelogical excavations on the site uncovered a much earlier mill and Hiberno-Norse artifacts which could date back to the 8th or 9th century.
