Alto Frascati apartments offer the perfect balance for modern living: convenience, excitement and comfort in abundance.
These units are brand new, dual-aspect, generously sized and, of course, situated in the heart of one of the capital’s favourites, Blackrock village. Set above the Frascati Centre, the location is stunning, with an exciting mix of lifestyle offerings directly underfoot. Furthermore, between the mountains and the sea, Alto Frascati is uniquely positioned to give residents some of the best city-dweller views imaginable.
These spacious apartments are centred around an open-plan living model; the starting point for the interior designer’s journey. Each unit benefits from morning and evening sunshine maximised by good natural light due the dual-aspect windows. The units also feature balconies and external terraces and there are landscaped roof gardens on two separate levels, including on the rooftop level. This gives residents an extended outdoor roaming space but there is the added internal communal amenity space, accessible to all residents and residents’ visitors and which leads out onto the large roof top terrace and garden area.
Typical Floor Plate
The hallway is furnished with a marble-top, iron-frame table, each one entirely unique. The intercom communication point is positioned here, which ensures safe and secure entry at the main door. The keypad for controlling the air-source heat pump is also discreetly nestled inside the front door.
The kitchen is finished to contemporary-style design, with slaterock porcelain floor tiling, solid quartz worktops and it is fully-fitted with A-rated energy-efficient appliances: electric hob, oven and extractor fan, fridge-freezer, microwave and dishwasher. Strategically placed LED lighting throughout, including recessed LED down-lighters to kitchen/dining area and entrance hall.
Living and Dining Room
Each apartment is wired for TV, cable and satellite and homeowners can avail of a variety of service providers. Standard finishing also includes a large Scandanavian-style three-seater sofa, matching upholstered footrests and a Scandanavian-style armchair. Set amongst these is a black porcelain coffee table with metal base, which is foldable to allow for a multi-use space. The room is further enriched by a large dining table and matching chairs, ideal for comfortable gatherings.
Bathroom and Ensuite
The bathrooms in Alto Frascati are fitted with modern, very luxurious baths and large showers. They each feature sleek sanitary ware, thoughtfully designed, with ample storage space. All of this, set against slaterock porcelain floor and wall tiles, completes the overall elegant/calm look and feel. The hot water supply to the bathrooms is highly efficient, powered by the air-source heat pump which again serves the entire home.
The bedrooms at Alto Frascati all feature very generously sized, built-in wardrobes. There are king-size beds in all 2 bedroom apartments. The upholstered headboard and matching divan base make the bed the centrepiece of the room, with matching bedside tables and soundless touch-technology bedside lamps.
Much consideration has been given to how the views of the park, the village and beyond to the mountains and the sea might be taken in. The balconies at Alto Frascati are glass-fronted and utilise a maintenance-free, reconstituted stone paving, ideal for the salty sea air in Blackrock.
All of the apartments come complete with generous storage areas, both internal and externa and all feature internal exhaust air heat pumps, housed in a dedicated room.
The flooring for these apartments has been carefully selected and placed so as to meet the home’s necessity for practicality and comfort in this regard. Upon entry through the front door, an oak timber laminate extends through the hall to the living and dining area and into the bedrooms. Meanwhile, the kitchen, the bathrooms and the ensuites all feature slaterock porcelain tiling.
Alto Frascati is heated by exhaust air heat pumps, which delivers to radiators in the individual units. The appliances fitted are A-rated energy-efficient and the windows and doors are aluminium-framed, double-glazed, whose thermal performance is highly efficient. The insulation specs at Alto Frascati exceed that of the standard required building regulation.
