56 Mount Anville Pk, Goatstown
€695k Sherry FitzGerald Dundrum (01) 296 1822
This is a good time of year to view a house at Mount Anville Park, as the cherry blossoms that line the street are in full bloom. Number 56 is a detached, 1,550 sq ft property that's been owned by the same family for a decade, and they've kept it in good order. The ground floor has a sitting room and a dining room linked by double doors, as well as a study or spare bedroom. The kitchen is at the back and has a door to the patio in the garden. The four main bedrooms (one en-suite) are upstairs, along with a shower room.
10 Harlech Crescent, Ardilea
€795k DNG Stillorgan (01) 283 2700
Harlech Crescent in Clonskeagh takes its name from Harlech House, a late 18th-century manor house. Harlech Crescent consists of far more modest, if comfortable-looking, bungalows on a quiet cul de sac. Number 10 is 1,432 sq ft including an adjoining garage that hasn't been converted. From the garage you can go through a pantry to reach the skylit kitchen, with a door to the back garden, divided into lawns, paving and gravel. The kitchen links with a tile-floored dining room and from there to a living room.
The Garth, Mount Anville Road
€1.15m Savills Central Dublin (01) 663 4300
The Garth is just across the street from Mount Anville school in Goatstown, so you can save money on bus fares, if not on the €5,350 annual school fees. It's a lovely if rather crumbling period house with its back to the road, and it has a 200ft garden. It is 2,540 sq ft, all in need of renovation, with original features such as ceiling roses, sash windows and fireplaces. The ground floor has a living room, drawing room, dining room and kitchen/breakfast room, and there's an office and four bedrooms upstairs, one is en-suite.
57 Barton Rd West, Rathfarnham
€575k DNG Terenure (01) 490 9000
If you haven't had enough of the 1916 commemorations, you could do worse than set up a base near St Enda's Park, home of the Pearse Museum, where Padraig Pearse ran his Irish-language school. Number 57 Barton Road West is a few hundred metres down the road from the park. It has been extended to 1,800 sq ft but still has both an unconverted garage and a 67ft back garden. Inside is a living room, a TV room with a home cinema, an eat-in kitchen and sunroom, plus four first-floor bedrooms (one en-suite).
