Four on the market: on the Howth Road
Four properties offering different potentional options, including proximity to the DART, which are currently available to buy on the Howth Road.
Kincora, 92 Howth Road, Howth
€850k Sherry FitzGerald Sutton (01) 839 4022
The Hill of Howth Tramway, a five-mile circuit of Howth Head, would have passed 92 Howth Road, had it been built then. The house is still convenient to the railway, as it's less than 10 minutes' walk from the DART station. It's a detached property with sea views, but the selling agents advise that a house is being built to the side of it. It's 2,045 sq ft and has an L-shaped living room with sea views, a kitchen with a range, and a family room. There are two ground-floor bedrooms (one en-suite) and two more rooms at attic level.
3 Howth Road, Clontarf, D3
€850k Gallagher Quigley (01) 818 3000
Number 3 Howth Road in Clontarf is in flats at present but for someone with time, money and nerve to take on the conversion, it promises to be a very special family home. Total floor area is 3,000 sq ft, with nine main rooms over three floors, and there are period features, such as vintage fireplaces, high ceilings and original floors. And there is room to extend, as the back garden is massive, at almost 175 ft. Number 3 is across the road from Marino Crescent, and Clontarf Road DART station is two minutes' walk away.
243 Howth Road, Killester, D5
€775k DNG Fairview (01) 833 1802
Furry Park, reportedly the oldest house in Clontarf, was once surrounded by extensive gardens and outbuildings. These have been demolished in favour of houses, among them 243 Howth Road. It's a 1,938 sq ft detached house with four or five bedrooms, depending on whether you want a bedroom or study. Also downstairs is a skylit kitchen and a large sitting room, opening through glass doors into a living/dining room at the back, with three sets of patio doors. The back garden has lawn, a deck and mature shrubs.
93 & 93B Howth Rd, Clontarf, D3
€595k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton (01) 804 0500
The original house at 93 Howth Road has been divided in two, both now for sale. The selling agents say the properties can either yield €35k a year in rent, or be reunited into a single home. Number 93 has three bedrooms on its first floor (one en-suite), while downstairs there's a living room with a fireplace and an open-plan kitchen and dining room. Number 93B has a living and dining room on the ground floor, a separate kitchen, and two bedrooms upstairs. There's off-street parking for both houses on a shared driveway.
