60 St Patrick’s Road, D9
€395k DNG Phibsboro (01) 830 0989
At present, Number 60 St Patrick's Road is in five flats, but the agents point out it could be converted back into a family home, about 300 metres from the railway station. It's a handsome, redbrick, bay-windowed house in the middle of a terrace, and has a small paved front garden and a lawned back garden, about 65 ft long, with pedestrian access. Inside it has three one-bedroom flats and two studios. The house is in reasonable decorative order and has some period features. Total floor area is 1,453 sq ft.
10 Whitworth Road, D9
€360k JLL Residential (01) 673 1600
The houses at Whitworth Road face due south over the Royal Canal, and have longish front gardens separating them from the passing traffic. Number 10, a 1,389 sq ft mid-terraced house, is in six flats at the moment, with potential to be turned back into a family home. Out the back is a long but overgrown garden that opens into a laneway. The property's main advantage is its location, not much more than 100 metres from Dorset Street, and three minutes' walk from Drumcondra station.
