A choice of four properties in Dublin which could be yours for less than €350,000.
1 St Barnabas Gardens, East Wall
€310k DNG Fairview (01) 833 1802
St Barnabas Gardens was built in the 1920s, part of a scheme of housing initiated by Canon DH Hall, "the building parson". The Dictionary of Irish Architects describes these 10 houses as being of experimental design and selected by women, as women were consulted on their designs. Number 1 is a two-bedroom semi-detached measuring 904 sq ft but has potential to extend. The ground floor has a galley kitchen, two reception rooms with fireplaces, and a bathroom, and the two bedrooms are upstairs.
28 St Brigid’s Avenue
€350k Quillsen Fairview (01) 833 5844
Within five minutes of closing the door of 28 St Brigid's Avenue in North Strand you can be entering Fairview Park, which is just across the Tolka River to the north. Number 28 has a garden of its own - pretty and wildish. The house looks tiny from the front but is actually 1,001 sq ft in a split-level arrangement. Right of the entrance hall are two reception rooms, one of which is used as the master bedroom. A flight of steps leads down to the kitchen, dining room and bathroom, and there are two bedrooms upstairs.
85 Tolka Road, Ballybough
€350k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton (01) 804 0500
From the outside, 85 Tolka Road, off Clonliffe Road, is a modest enough semi-detached, but it's been given a serious makeover inside. It's still quite small, at 825 sq ft, but the interior has been opened out and brightened, and every square inch has been cleverly used. The ground floor has a skylit reception room to one side of the entrance hall, and on the other is an open-plan kitchen and living room running the length of the house, with French doors to the garden, which is gravelled. The three bedrooms are upstairs.
194 Philipsburgh Ave, Marino
€350k DNG Fairview (01) 833 1802
Number 194 Philipsburgh Avenue is in the thick of the commercial life of Marino. It's across the street from a cluster of shops and cafes, and a five-minute walk from Marino Institute of Education at Griffith Avenue. It's on a corner site where Philipsburgh Avenue meets Morrogh Terrace, so it's also less than 50 metres from Croydon Park It has two reception rooms and a kitchen on the ground floor, and three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. The floor area is 969 sq ft and the whole needs modernising.
