6 Grange Terrace, Co Dublin

6 Grange Terrace in Dun Laoghaire.

Though it's all on one floor, 6 Grange Terrace, opposite the cemetery in Deansgrange, manages to hide 915 sq ft of accommodation behind its dainty façade, extending quite far back from the front elevation. It's a terraced cottage with two bedrooms, although one is in use as a study. Directly inside the front door is a living and dining room, measuring over 12ft by 25ft, with skylights and a cast-iron fireplace. There's a country-style kitchen at the back of the house, with French doors to a neat back garden.

13 Bayview Avenue, North Strand

 €275k  DNG Fairview (01) 833 1802

13 Bayview Avenue

Don't be deceived by what looks from the front like a titchy little 19th century cottage. Number 13 Bayview Avenue actually has 1,023 sq ft of accommodation on three floors. The ground floor has a living room to the front with the first of two bedrooms behind it. The other bedroom is upstairs, together with a shower room, while the basement has the kitchen and another reception room. The house needs taking in hand, as does the back garden, which is generously-sized but a bit of a mess. Parking is on the street.

33 Glasnevin Court, Glasnevin

€245k  Kelly Bradshaw Dalton (01) 804 0500

33 Glasnevin Court

Glasnevin Court is a cul de sac estate just off Ballyboggan Road in Glasnevin, and Number 33 is right at the end, its grounds just about backing onto Tolka Valley Park. It's an end-of-terrace house of 905 sq ft on two floors. At entrance level there's a kitchen and an open-plan dual-aspect sitting and dining room overlooking the parkland. Downstairs are three bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes, and a bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and separate shower. The back garden is fully paved and the front garden has parking.

67 Tyrconnell Road, Inchicore

€249k  DNG Central (01) 679 4088

67 Tyrconnell Road

If you turn right at the front door of 67 Tyrconnell Road and walk about 200 metres, you'll get to the centre of Inchicore village. Turn left and you'll reach the Blackhorse Luas stop after about 600 metres. It looks like a single-storey cottage but Number 67 is on three levels and has 969 sq ft of space. It has three bedrooms, two at garden level and one on the first floor, plus a dining room, sitting room and kitchen. Out the back is a 60ft south-east-facing garden sloping away from the house, with ornamental trees and paving.
