Four on the market: redbrick terraces in Ranelagh
A choice of four red-bricked terrace properties currently available to buy in popular Ranelagh.
8 Ashfield Road, D6
€950k Quillsen Ranelagh, (01) 499 5050
Ashfield Road is a tree-lined street of early 20th century redbrick terraced houses, about 300 metres from Beechwood Luas stop. Number 8 has been extended to 1,507 sq ft. The original house is full of period features, with fireplaces in almost all rooms. The ground floor has a high-ceilinged drawing room and dining room, and a kitchen opening into a family room. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a shower room. There's a railed front garden and a back garden with a patio, plus a pedestrian exit to Mornington Road.
20 Moyne Road, D6
€995k Sherry FitzGerald Ranelagh, (01) 496 9909
This home has been in the same family for 20 years and they've made the most of the available space, which now amounts to 1,533 sq ft not including a 258 sq ft attic. There are three reception rooms: a drawing room and a dining room linked by double doors, and a breakfast room opening to the kitchen. Upstairs are four bedrooms, one en-suite. The attic is divided into two rooms, one featuring an exposed stone archway. There's a pretty walled back garden with a patio, and stepping stones to a pedestrian exit at the end.
4 Leeson Park Avenue, D6
€1.25m Lisney Leeson Street (01) 638 2700
Number 4 is on Dublin City Council's list of protected structures, so it's just as well it has already been extended (1,905 sq ft) and refurbished. At hall level are two reception rooms and a bedroom on the return. The garden level has two more bedrooms, one with French doors to a courtyard, and a large kitchen and breakfast room in the extension, with a sliding door to the garden. That garden is lined with trees, and behind it are the grounds of Royal Hospital Donnybrook so there are some pleasantly verdant views.
26 Elmpark Avenue, D6
€495k Savills Central Dublin, (01) 663 4300
Elmpark Avenue is a cul-de-sac off Ranelagh Road, just a walk of about three minutes to Ranelagh village and the Luas stop. Number 26 has 1,054 sq ft of accommodation on three floors, and it could do with some refurbishment. The first floor has a bathroom and two bedrooms, both with fireplaces, and there's a third bedroom, also with a fireplace at attic level. On the ground floor are two reception rooms and a kitchen with a guest toilet off it. Out the back is a 20ft patio garden with pedestrian access.
