64 Waterloo Road, D4
€1.45m DNG Central (01) 679 4088
The early 20th century was a good time for Church of Ireland clergymen. In the 1911 census, 64 Waterloo Road was home to Reverend John Richards Goff, his wife Alice, and their only child Eric. Number 64 has lately been in commercial use but is ripe for conversion to a family house. It's on two storeys over garden level, with two large reception rooms on the hall floor, two more in the basement, and three bedrooms on the first floor.
