13 Woodstock Gdns, Ranelagh
€925k Quillsen Ranelagh (01) 499 5050
Woodstock Gardens is a leafy street, but tall as its trees are, they can't compete with a terrace of towering early 20th-century houses in the Dutch colonial style. Number 13 is the last house in the terrace, and has a low-maintenance split-level back garden. You reach the garden through double doors in an open-plan kitchen and family room on the ground floor. This level also has a bay-windowed living room. The first floor has three bedrooms and there are two more on the top floor. The house is 2,185 sq ft in size.
83 Grove Park, Rathmines
€645k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton (01) 804 0500
Like many of the properties in Grove Park, Number 83 is in flats at the moment, but if you're equal to the task of ripping out kitchenettes, it has the makings of a fairly roomy family home with authentic period features. The ground floor has two reception rooms, with a kitchen and utility on the return. There are four bedrooms upstairs and a fifth bedroom (with en-suite) on the second-floor return. The total floor area is 1,800 sq ft. There's a paved garden out the back, and parking is on the street out front, with a permit.
11 Hollybank Avenue Lower
€675k Sherry FitzGerald Ranelagh (01) 469 9909
At the end of the street that comprises Hollybank Avenue (Upper and Lower) in Ranelagh there's a gate to the grounds of Gonzaga College. If you have a son going there, he should never be late for school again, which is the least you'd expect as you'll be paying over €6,000 a year for his schooling. Number 11 Hollybank Avenue Lower is 1,026 sq ft and has two bedrooms. On the ground floor there are two interconnected reception rooms and a kitchen, where there are doors to a pleasant, walled back garden.
54 Highfield Road, Rathgar
€1.295m Lisney Terenure (01) 492 4670
The front garden of 54 Highfield Road has been given over to parking. The back garden, though, makes up for the lack of verdure out front. It's 88ft long with a lawn, ornamental trees and flowerbeds full of colour. Inside, the house is 2,282 sq ft in size, with another 215 sq ft in the skylit attic, and there's planning permission for an extension. There are four bedrooms upstairs, including the en-suite master, while the ground floor has a drawing room and a dining room, both with marble fireplaces, and a conservatory off the kitchen.
