Four on the market in south Dublin for €1.25m
A choice of four impressive properties in south Dublin which will set you back €1.25 million.
79 Ranelagh Rd, Ranelagh, D6
€1.25m Owen Reilly (01) 677 7100
It's about a 15-minute walk from 79 Ranelagh Road to St Stephen's Green, but if you find even that distance too arduous, you can jump on a Luas at Charlemont Bridge, about 250 metres away. And should you insist on driving, Number 79 has off-street parking for three cars. It's a fully refurbished Victorian townhouse on two storeys over a raised basement. It has four bedrooms, two reception rooms at hall level, and a kitchen and dining room in the basement with doors to the paved back garden. It's 2,314 sq ft in total.
63 Tritonville Road, D4
€1.25m Bennetts (01) 260 2520
Number 63 Tritonville Road in Sandymount dates from before the Second World War, but thanks to a complete refurbishment it has a very 21st-century energy rating of B3. It's also grown a bit bigger: the floor area is now 2,885 sq ft, with an extended kitchen and two en-suite bedrooms at attic level. There are six bedrooms altogether, with five en-suite, including the master which has a jacuzzi bath. The ground floor has a bay-windowed living room and an open-plan kitchen, breakfast room and family room.
11 Sunbury Gardens, Dartry, D6
€1.25m DNG Terenure (01) 490 9000
Numbers 11 and 12 Sunbury Gardens are both for sale with the same agent at €1.25m apiece. Sadly, while they are semi-detached, they're not attached to each other, so you can put away any thoughts of knocking them into one. Both are fine Victorian three-storey redbricks that have been divided into flats. Number 11 is a little bigger, at 2,648 sq ft, and has the makings of at least four bedrooms. The houses of Sunbury Gardens overlook a pleasant park, with hedges, lawns and mature trees, which is owned by the residents.
94 Pembroke Road, D4
€1.25m Gallagher Quigley (01) 818 3000
At present, 94 Pembroke Road, Ballsbridge is in flats but the selling agents report that the tenants will have vacated by the 23rd of this month. A buyer wanting to turn it back into a family home will have about 2,982 sq ft of floor space to work with inside, and the option of applying for planning permission for a mews out the back, where there's vehicle access to Baggot Lane. The house is on three storeys with a basement with some good Georgian features intact, and there's the makings of four or five bedrooms.
