Five-star hotel facilities, including a wellness suite, at luxury €1m Rathgar builds

The development of luxury apartments, penthouses and houses in the leafy suburb has the kind of upmarket facilities once reserved for five-star hotels: the residents’ club has a gym with a personal trainer, a wellness suite with a steam room and sauna, a lounge, a cinema room, a concierge desk, and a meeting room.

Cairn Homes is building the complex on an 8.1ac site off the Orwell Road that was home to a Redemptorist monastery for almost a century. Some two-thirds of the apartments originally earmarked for Marianella were sold before the official launch in November 2017, as the builders fielded enquiries from passers-by keen to move into an energy-efficient, more manageable home in their community after their children had flown the nest.

The last eight penthouses – priced from €950,000 – were released at Marianella a week ago. With sizes ranging from 1,300 sq ft to 1,800 sq ft, the upmarket penthouses are larger than some period homes in Rathgar. There is also a five-bed semi-detached house still for sale at €1.6m and a three-bed house selling for €900,000.

The homes are laid out in a series of communal gardens where there’s a children‘s natural play area. The A3-rated homes at Marianella are just a five-minute walk from the centre of Rathgar Village and 3km from Grafton Street.

Viewings are by appointment.
