Four on the market: in Dublin city centre
A choice of four properties currently available to buy in city centre Dublin.
28 Greenore Terrace, D2
€335k Sherry FitzGerald Ballsbridge (01) 269 8888
Some estate agents would describe 28 Greenore Terrace, near Lower Grand Canal St as 'bijou' or 'cosy'. That means it's only 506 sq ft, but promises to be a convenient city-centre bolthole for someone with €335,000 to spend, added to the cost of refurbishing it a little. It's at the end of a terrace, on a corner, and has two bedrooms on the first floor - a reasonable double and a single. Downstairs is a living room, a kitchen with a little breakfast bar, and a shower room. Out the back is a small concrete yard.
24 Buckingham Street, D1
€425k Sherry FitzGerald City Centre (01) 643 1400
At census time in 1911, 24 Buckingham Street was split into three residences, housing nine in total. Today the property is still divided. It's in two flats, but the selling agents say it would be an easy conversion back to a four-bedroom family home. The two former reception rooms on the entrance floor have become an open-plan kitchen, dining and living room. There's also a utility and bathroom on this level. The first floor has two bedrooms, while the basement has another bedroom and kitchen, family room and bathroom.
132 Pearse St, D2
€675k DNG Central (01) 679 4088
Pearse Street is unrecognisable on an old map, as everything on it has been renamed in honour of Padraig Pearse, who was born there. Number 132 is on the south side of the street, midway between the square and the station, and a 10-minute walk from Trinity. It's a refurbished four-bedroom house of 1,776 sq ft on two floors with a basement. At entrance level are two reception rooms and the kitchen, which gives onto a balcony out the back. There are two bedrooms in the basement and two on the first floor.
18 Belvidere Road, Dorset St, D1
€400k Movehome.ie (01) 886 7090
Belvidere Road (not Belvedere, as it's often misspelt) runs at an angle off the North Circular and heads northwest to Dorset Street. Number 18 is a redbrick house that's been in the same ownership for generations and now needs updating. The basement was extended, taking the floor area up to 1,507 sq ft. The kitchen is in the basement, along with a playroom and two bedrooms, and there are three more on the first floor. The entrance hall has a bay-windowed sitting room and a dining room.
