Four period homes in Dublin 6 which are currently on the market.
32 Oaklands Terrace, Terenure
€550k DNG Terenure (01) 490 9000
Oaklands Terrace is part of a little warren of early 20th-century houses between Terenure Road North and Brighton Road. Number 32 is a little bigger than its neighbours, as it was the residence of the man who built the street, John Hanna. It's been refurbished by its current owners, who have made the most of the 1,160 sq ft of space. Downstairs is an interconnecting living and dining room, kitchen with doors to the garden, and a guest toilet. The main bathroom is upstairs, along with the three bedrooms (one en-suite).
19 Ormond Rd South, Rathmines
€1.275m Sherry FitzGerald Rathmines (01) 496 6066
Number 19 Ormond Road has had the same owners for 15 years, and they've taken good care of the place. It's as neat as a pin inside and out. It's an end-of-terrace two-storey house measuring 2,025 sq ft, with four upstairs bedrooms. The ground floor has a drawing room and a dining room linked by an archway, with fireplaces and wood floors. At the end of the hall is a family room opening into a kitchen. The back garden is over 60ft long with an old stone wall, a square lawn and a patio, and pedestrian access to a back lane.
15 Leeson Park Ave, Ranelagh
€775k DNG Central (01) 679 4088
Number 15 Leeson Park Avenue needs total refurbishment, but it does come with authentic features including sash windows, fireplaces and original floorboards. Any renovation is likely to include an extension too, as it's 1,119 sq ft and has a long, largely empty back garden. It has two bedrooms at garden level, both with fireplaces. Also downstairs there's a kitchenette and a bathroom with the original free-standing bath. At entrance level there are two reception rooms and another kitchenette.
16 Edenvale Road, Ranelagh
€995k Lisney Leeson Street (01) 662 4511
Beechwood Luas stop is just around the corner from 16 Edenvale Road - about three minutes' walk or so. Or you can get to St Stephen's Green in less than half an hour on foot. Or failing that, there's a bicycle store in the 33ft back garden. Number 16 is 1,528 sq ft in size with five first-floor bedrooms, one is likely to be sacrificed by a new owner to make the others bigger, or for an en-suite. Downstairs has a pair of interconnected reception rooms and a kitchen, and behind is a study that could make way for a roomier kitchen.
