A selection of four properties currently on the market and available to buy in Dublin 5.
1A Foxfield Avenue, Raheny
€545k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton (01) 804 0500
The DART station in Kilbarrack is only 850 metres from 1A Foxfield Avenue, and when you fancy a constitutional walk, Bull Island is about 20 minutes away. Number 1A is a detached house on a corner site next to Foxfield Drive, and has a south-facing back garden with a raised deck above a lawn. Sizewise it's 1,325 sq ft with four bedrooms on the first floor, one a single. Downstairs there's a living room left of the entrance hall, with double doors leading to the kitchen at the back, where there are French doors to the deck.
12 St Brendan’s Drive, Artane
€395k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton (01) 804 0500
St Brendan's Drive is in what would have been the gardens of Coolock House, former home of Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy, and now a Mercy College secondary school for girls. Number 12 is a semi-detached house that's been upgraded and extended to 1,615 sq ft. There's an adjoining garage which the agents suggest could form part of a two-storey extension. The ground floor has a living room, dining room, kitchen and sun room, along with a large spare bedroom or office, with en-suite.
43A Abbeyfield, Killester
€395k Sherry FitzGerald Killester (01) 833 6555
Number 43A Abbeyfield is a small house at present - only 753 sq ft - but the selling agents suggest it may be possible to gain a little extra space, as it's on a fairly roomy site and there's an existing detached garage measuring another 300 sq ft. Otherwise is has a livingroom at the front, a kitchen at the back, and three bedrooms on the opposite side of the hallway. It's right beside the park of Abbeyfield, which has enough mature trees to supply a bit of birdsong, and it's less than five minutes' walk from the DART station at Killester.
61 Hazelwood Park, Artane
€425k DNG Fairview (01) 833 1802
Medics (and medical students) may be interested in a base at Hazelwood Park in Artane, as it's only about a kilometre from Beaumont Hospital and the Royal College of Surgeons Library. Number 61 overlooks a common green area out the front but you won't be needing that, as the house has its own 83ft garden out the back, where there's a long lawn, a greenhouse and a garage, while another garage adjoins the house. The ground floor also has three reception rooms, and upstairs are three bedrooms. Total floor area is 1,389 sq ft.
