Ardgarra
 

Out the back of Ardgarra is the makings of a wonderful garden. It's 120ft long and in a quite unruly state at present, but there are good bones in the shape of mature trees and old stones walls. Inside too, the house needs taking in hand but has plenty of period features to be going on with. It has 1,830 sq ft of accommodation on two floors, with four bedrooms. One of these is at entrance level, along with a sitting room and a dining room, both with original fireplaces and sash windows. The other three bedrooms are downstairs, along with the breakfast room, pantry and kitchen.

8 Tivoli Terrace North
 

A wood-floored conservatory has been thrown onto the rear of 8 Tivoli Terrace, where you can enjoy the views of a pleasant, stepped back garden with a lawn and ornamental trees. The late 19th-century villa is in good order, having been recently refurbished. It measures 2,012 sq ft, including a converted attic where there are two rooms used as bedrooms. At entrance level there's a drawing room with a feature fireplace, a dining room overlooking the garden and the master bedroom with en-suite and walk-in wardrobe. There's another bedrooms downstairs, along with the kitchen and the conservatory. Tivoli Terrace North is off York Road, and it's about 10 minutes' walk from the DART station.

‘Menloe’, 19A York Road

Menloe
 

The layout of Menloe, a one-bedroom bungalow at York Road, is a little unorthodox. But happily the owners have secured planning permission to reconfigure the house much more sensibly, as well as making it bigger. At present it's 893 sq ft and has a large, dual-aspect living room with a fireplace in the middle of it. Off this is a smallish (8ft by 11ft) kitchen, and the one bedroom has French doors to the garden. The plan is to extend the ground floor, more or less swapping the kitchen and bedroom, and to put two more bedrooms in a second storey. Outside there's off-street parking and a lawned garden.

25 Clarinda Park West

25 Clarinda Park West
 

Number 25 Clarinda Park West is one of a pair of Victorian seaside villas towards the southern end of the street, though not overlooking Clarinda Park itself. It needs refurbishment but there have been some recent upgrades, including a central vacuum system and an attic conversion, which takes the floor area to 1,980 sq ft. The ground floor has two formal reception rooms, two bedrooms, and a kitchen at the back with doors to the garden, which someone has made a start on. There's one more bedroom on the return, and an attic room with en-suite. The nearest DART station is Sandycove & Glasthule, less than 10 minutes' walk away.
