Four on the market: Four-bed semis in Clontarf, D3
A choice of four properties currently for sale in the coastal suburb on the northside of Dublin.
4 Copeland Avenue
€650k DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
The selling agents advise that this 1,496 sq ft home could be extended into the back garden if necessary, but it would be a pity. The 130ft-long garden is abundantly planted with trees, flowers and shrubs. Number 4 has a front living room, with bay window and original period fireplace, and a second reception behind it, with doors to the garden. There's an open-plan kitchen and breakfast room, and a guest shower room. Upstairs are four bedrooms, two with fireplaces, and a bathroom. Outside is a garage with storerooms.
87 The Stiles Road
€830k Gallagher Quigley, (01) 818 3000
The Stiles Road is a long, tree-lined street leading south from Howth Road to the coast at Clontarf Road. Number 87, a 1930s-built semi, has been extended to 1,538 sq ft, and tastefully renovated. It has a living room and family room on the ground floor, both with marble fireplaces, an extended kitchen and dining room with wood-burning stove, and a separate laundry room. Upstairs are four bedrooms, a family bathroom, and a converted attic. The 100ft back garden has a block-built studio, and there's vehicle access.
26 Mount Prospect Avenue
€975k Lisney Drumcondra, (01) 884 0700
Just a five-minute walk from 26 Mount Prospect Avenue, is the entrance to St Anne's Park with its Rose Garden. Or, you could plant a rose garden of your own in the 140ft garden behind this period two-storey semi, extended to 1,970 sq ft. Left of the entrance hall is a bay-windowed study and, to the right, are two reception rooms, both with fireplaces. To the rear is a kitchen and breakfast room, opening into a sun lounge extension, and with a separate utility. The first floor has four bedrooms, one en-suite, and a bathroom.
67 Kincora Drive
€660k Gunne Fairview, (01) 833 5844
