66 Claremont Road, Sandymount
€995k Sherry FitzGerald Ballsbridge (01) 269 8888
About a five-minute walk from Sandymount Green is 66 Claremont Road, part of a small terrace that looks rather like one house that was divided into three during its 100-odd years of existence. You still get 2,100 sq ft of floor space, including two handsome receptions on the ground floor - a drawing room and dining room - both with fireplaces. At the back is a kitchen and breakfast room with doors to the garden. The first floor has four bedrooms (one en-suite). There's a fifth bedroom and a bathroom on the floor above.
30 Charleston Ave, Ranelagh, D6
€995k Felicity Fox (01) 633 4431
One side of Charleston Avenue consists of a terrace of Tudor-style half-timbered houses possibly designed by the English-born architect Thomas E Hudman who also designed the Exchange Buildings at Lord Edward Street. Number 30 is a four-bedroom house of 1,851 sq ft, and in very good decorative order. To the right of the entrance hall is a drawing room with a cast-iron fireplace and doors to the garden, and to the left is a dining room, opening to an eat-in kitchen. Upstairs are four bedrooms and a bathroom.
16 Morehampton Lane, D4
€995k Savills Central Dublin (01) 663 4300
