Windsor Terrace is on the seafront in Dun Laoghaire, enjoying limitless views over Dublin Bay. Number 8, at the end of the terrace, is partly in offices at the moment but could be converted into a four- or five-bedroom home, if planners permit. It's 2,804 sq ft in size on two floors with a two-storey return, and has period features such as sash windows, fireplaces and the original staircase.Steps lead up to the front garden, which has a brace of lawns and some shrubbery, and there's garage parking out the back.
5 Mulgrave Terrace
€1.175m Sherry Ftzgeraldi, Dun Laoghaire, (01) 284 4422
This property has been in the hands of the same family for 35 years, and they've carefully maintained it and extended it to 2,573 sq ft. On the ground floor is an open-plan drawing room, dining room and garden room. The living room, kitchen and breakfast room are also open-plan, and there's a utility room, shower and bedroom on the ground floor too. The other four bedrooms are upstairs, with the main bathroom. There's off-street parking at the front, and a back garden with two patios, a water feature and sun deck.
Ferry House, Clarinda Park North
€850k Bartholomew McElhatton, (01) 642 4242
Ferry House is in use as a Bed & Breakfast at the moment, but the axing of the Dun Laoghaire ferry service is as good an excuse as any to convert it back into a family home. It's 3,100 sq ft in size with seven bedrooms, all en-suite. Four of these are on the first floor, with an office; the other two are on the ground floor with another office. The basement has a living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom and utility, and there's a side garden. The nearest Dart station is Sandycove & Glasthule, about 300 metres away.
