Where: 131 Herberton Road, Rialto, Dublin 8
This recently-extended end-of-terrace house is located in one of Dublin's hottest postcodes, 25 minutes' walk from the city centre and close to both the Luas and several bus routes.
Externally, the 103sqm house features attractive brickwork, large bay windows and an ornate porch. There is a cobblelock drive area with off-street parking for up to six cars, handy if new owner-occupiers are planning to defray part of the cost of the mortgage by renting out some of the bedrooms. Side access leads to a west-facing cobblelock court yard.
A wide hallway has deep pile carpets, and to the right is the living room, which has a bay window. There's a feature fireplace with a gas fire. The hallway kitchen/dining extension to the rear is bright and has a breakfast bar and tiled splashbacks. One of the four bedrooms is downstairs - it's a single, and could be used as a study if not required as a bedroom. A downstairs bathroom is fully tiled with a power shower and heated towel rail.
Three of the bedrooms are upstairs. The master bedroom is in the room with the bay window to the front. The main bathroom is upstairs and it too is fully tiled with a power shower and heated towel rail.
Rialto village is around the corner, and is home to a variety of shops, including Ennis Butchers, which has a loyal following of customers from the neighbourhood and further afield.
The village has the air of being somewhere on the up - Portobello West? - with new cafés and shops appearing. Proximity to St James's Hospital and the new national children's hospital is another plus.
