Spectacular penthouses in Athlone’s old quarter

A number of spectacular penthouses in the old quarter of Athlone have recently come on the market. Bastion Quay is superb development, enjoying a unique town centre location, large spacious apartments, private marinas and stunning views of the River Shannon. Prices for luxury apartments start at €320,000, while prices for penthouses are available on application. This is a low-density luxury development, prominently situated on the left bank of the river in the town’s historic old quarter, within a few steps of the town’s Castle, shops and restaurants. The highly anticipated release of Athlone’s most spectacular penthouses – and Bastion Quay’s ‘crown jewels’ – has finally arrived. These palatial residences brilliantly showcase the views of the River Shannon with oversized glazing and enormous square footages up to 2,500 sq. ft. including large balconies. Picture yourself lounging on your spacious terrace-balcony, with a glass of wine, overlooking the glistening river, with pleasure boats cruising by and the soothing sounds of the softly-flowing Shannon waters of Athlone in the background. The very generous specifications include under-floor heating, high performance lifts with exclusive top floor key-access, CCTV intercom system, Faber fireplaces, Dansk Scandinavian glazing, secure car parking, acoustic flooring, luxurious entrance lobbies and landscaping by Parkhood Landscape Architects. The scheme exudes luxury throughout – even the ‘standard’ apartments mostly range from 1,000 sq. ft. to 1,500 sq. ft. plus balconies and all have river views. It’s not surprising therefore that of the 51 apartments available for sale there are only 18 remaining.   Bastion Quay’s location has the added benefits of a lush recreational green belt across the river and an adjacent nature reserve, both of which will protect the views into the future. Construction is well underway with completion set for early ’08 – viewing is by appointment. Bastion Quay, with its top class design and vibrant, sophisticated location epitomises luxurious waterfront living at its best. It’s little wonder why it’s proving to be the winning choice for home-owners, investors and city escapers alike. Show apartment viewing is by appointment only.
