29 Auburn Street, Phibsboro, D7
€295k Quillsen Glasnevin (01) 850 0900
About 100 metres from 29 Auburn Street in Broadstone is the entrance to 'Dublin's secret garden' - the Blessington Street Basin - a public park that's mostly water, with an artificial island for ducks. Number 29 is a two-storey house at the end of a terrace, with two bedrooms on the first floor. Downstairs there's a sitting room and lounge, and a kitchen, utility room and bathroom in a back extension. It is 872 sq ft, and there's a back yard with street access. The Broadstone Luas stop will be about five minutes' walk away.
20 Castleview, Artane, D5
€275k DNG Fairview (01) 833 1802
Castleview is rather a nostalgic name for a cul de sac community near Kilmore Road in Artane. You probably could see Artane Castle from there, but obviously you'd need a time machine. Number 20, a three-bedroom terraced house, is towards the back of the cul de sac, which opens at its other end at Artane Shopping Centre. The house is 829 sq ft, neat and well maintained. On the ground floor there's a living room and an eat-in kitchen with sliding doors to the garden. The three bedrooms and bathroom are upstairs.
54 Reuben Avenue, Rialto, D8
€245k Felicity Fox (01) 633 4431
You'll have a bit of a project on your hands at 54 Reuben Avenue, which requires upgrading through its 751 sq ft. It has two bedrooms on the first floor and a bathroom on the return level with a wood-panelled bath. Downstairs is a living room and a dining room that have been knocked into one, with sliding patio doors. At the back of the house is a small kitchen with a hatch to the dining room. There's on-street parking out the front with a resident's disc, while out the back is a walled concrete yard about 24 ft long.
16 Harold’s Cross Cottages, D6
€250k DNG Terenure (01) 490 9000
Number 16 Harold's Cross Cottages is smaller than many city apartments, at only 366 sq ft. What you lose in space you gain in location. It's less than 100 metres from the Grand Canal and about a 20-minute walk from St Stephen's Green. The house has been fully refurbished. The front door opens straight into an open-plan living room and kitchen lit by a skylight and warmed by a gas fireplace. Then at the back of the house there's a shower room and the one bedroom, which has French doors to a small patio garden.
