26 Merrion Park, Blackrock
€775k Sherry FitzGerald Blackrock (01) 288 0088
Merrion Park is a cul de sac development off South Hill Avenue, which runs between Booterstown Avenue and Mount Merrion Avenue. Number 26 is a redbrick semi-detached with three bedrooms that has been extended to 1,566 sq ft. The attic was converted, creating a second-floor room, and a kitchen and dining room was added out the back. The kitchen opens into the living room, and there are double doors there to a front drawing room. There are three bedrooms on the first floor, the main with an en-suite.
22 Mather Road North, Co Dublin
€735k REA Ed Dempsey (01) 288 0004
There's a huge and quite pretty garden out the back of 7 Nutley Park in Donnybrook. It's 85ft long and over half as wide. The house was extended in 2000 and now stands at 2,723 sq ft, all without the sacrifice of too much back garden. (The front is almost fully paved.) It's semi-detached with five first-floor bedrooms (two en-suite). The ground floor has three reception rooms - two to the left of the entrance hall and one at the back, opening from the kitchen, with French doors to the patio. There's also a utility room and study.
7 Bellevue Park, Booterstown
€830k Lisney Leeson Street (01) 662 4511
The houses on the north side of Bellevue Park overlook the ninth green of Elm Park Golf and Sports Club, which might prove a distraction. If not, it's only about a 10-minute walk from there to the entrance of UCD. Number 7 is a semi-detached house of 1,722 sq ft, with four bedrooms, all on the first floor. None have en-suites but two have sinks. Downstairs is a living room and a dining room with sliding doors between them, playroom or guest bedroom, and single-storey family room extension off the kitchen.
7 Nutley Park, Donnybrook, D4
€1.6m Felicity Fox (01) 633 4431
It needs modernising inside and out, but 22 Mather Road North, Mount Merrion, offers a fairly roomy 1,722 sq ft of accommodation and a promising back garden. There are two reception rooms with fireplaces on the ground floor - a dining room at the front and a living room at the back. A new owner will almost certainly consider knocking the wall between the living room and adjoining kitchen. There's also a second sitting room or study. Upstairs are four bedrooms along with a bathroom and separate toilet.
