Four on the market: redbricks in Fairview D3
A choice of four redbrick properties on the market in Fairview.
50 Cadogan Road
€410k, DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
Cadogan Road is a much nicer place to live now than when it was built in the first decade of the 20th century, when there was a huge chemical manure works on the other side of the Tolka River. Now, the area is a lot more fragrant. Number 50 has been redecorated, and has period features such as sash windows and ornate plasterwork. It's 969 sq ft with three first-floor bedrooms and, downstairs, two receptions and a kitchen. There's a paved back garden with a wooden shed, and Fairview Park is at the end of the street.
9 Lomond Avenue
€345k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton, (01) 804 0500
You would never be stuck for a game of pitch and putt, or a tap dancing class for Junior, at Lomond Avenue. At the end of the street is Fairview Sports & Social Club and the CYMC Hall, home of the Billie Barry Stage School. Built in 1906, Number 9 needs some renovation. It's 941 sq ft including an attic floor that's partly converted. The first floor has two bedrooms, and on the ground floor are two interconnected reception rooms and a kitchen. There's a partly paved back yard and a small railed front garden, with on-street parking.
82 Fairview Strand
€250k, Gallagher Quigley, (01) 818 3000
Across the street from Number 82 is the old, disused Jewish Cemetery, where a plaque on the gate house reads 'Built in the year 5618' - the equivalent to 1857 in the Gregorian calendar. Number 82 needs complete refurbishment and, should you wish to extend it, there's a 45 ft back garden to build into. The property is 1,023 sq ft with three bedrooms upstairs, two with the original cast iron fireplaces. The ground floor has two reception rooms and the kitchen, all with fireplaces, and with a scullery off it.
16 Addison Road
€385k, O’Connor Shannon, (01) 496 8111
Number 16 Addison Road is in flats, but the selling agents say it is suitable for conversion to a family home. It is a reasonably family-friendly location, as Addison Road is a cul-de-sac and opens onto Fairview Park at its eastern end. Number 16 is 1,152 sq ft in size with two flats on each of the two floors - three studios and a one-bed - as well as a laundry room on the ground floor. There's a smallish paved yard out the back and on-street parking out the front; Clontarf Road station is about a 15-minute walk away.
