20 Grangegorman Villas, D7
€550k DNG Phibsboro, (01) 830 0989
Built in the early 20th century to house staff of Richmond District Lunatic Asylum, Grangegorman Villas nowadays are more convenient for people using the new DIT campus. Number 20 has been extended to 1,238 sq ft but still has original features such as the staircase, fireplaces and exterior cut-stone walls. It has three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. There's another bathroom on the ground floor, along with two reception rooms and a kitchen with patio doors. The price is down from €595,000.
13 Stoneview Place, Dun Laoghaire
€395k Lisney Dun Laoghaire, (01) 280 6820
A sizeable €100,000 has been knocked off the price of this 1,109 sq ft house in a cul-de-sac just off Dun Laoghaire's main street. In the 1911 census, Number 13 housed seven people - a head waiter, his wife, their three children, and two lodgers. These days, it's likely to accommodate fewer than that. It has three bedrooms and, downstairs, are a kitchen, adjoining breakfast room and a living room, all with exposed ceiling beams, and a sunroom. There are shower rooms on both floors and, outside, a patio garden.
