30 Glandore Road, Drumcondra
€625k Lisney Drumcondra (01) 884 0700
A single-storey garage adjoins Number 30 Glandore Road in Drumcondra, and it's crying out to be converted to a two-storey extension, like some of its neighbours. The house was built in the 1930s. It's 1,399 sq ft in size, and has three reception rooms on the ground floor, as well as the kitchen and a sunroom overlooking the garden. The four bedrooms are upstairs with the main bathroom. The back garden is over 98ft long and planted with grass, trees and shrubs abutting a paved sitting area. There's a front garden too.

Avid horticulturalists may be interested in 5 Fairfield Road in the Dublin 9 end of Glasnevin, as it's only about three minutes' walk from the National Botanic Gardens.

The ground floor has a sitting room and lounge in the old part, and a kitchen in an extension at the back, along with a shower room. The four bedrooms and main bathroom are upstairs.

15 Oak Ave, Royal Oak, Santry
€325k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton (01) 804 0500
Number 15 Oak Avenue is about a 10-minute walk from the gym at the National Athletics Stadium in Santry. You can discount those 10 minutes from the time you have to spend in the gym. It is on a corner site in the leaflike Royal Oak development, and as it has good-sized gardens at the front, side and rear, there is scope to extend it. At present, it's 1,023 sq ft, with four first-floor bedrooms. Downstairs, there's a sitting room with a granite fireplace, opening to a kitchen and dining room at the back of the house.
232 Charlemont, Griffith Ave
AMV €400k Rea Ed Dempsey (01) 288 0004
Charlemont is a warren of a development off Griffith Avenue in Dublin 9 - so rambling, in fact, that from 232 Charlemont, it will take at least 10 minutes to walk to the exit of the estate. This means it's fairly secluded, though, with little traffic. Number 232 overlooks a small public park. It's 1,635 sq ft in size, with four bedrooms upstairs and, on the ground floor, a living room, dining room, kitchen and conservatory, with gardens front and back. It will be auctioned on October 15.
