68 The Avenue, Ballinteer
€465k Keane Thompson (01) 298 9384
Number 68 The Avenue in Woodpark is about two minutes' drive from the M50 (Junction 13), and within walking distance of Marlay Park. Dundrum Town Centre is about the same distance in the opposite direction. Number 68 is a three-bedroom semi-detached of 1,184 sq ft. The bedrooms are all upstairs, while on the ground floor there's the kitchen and three linked reception rooms - a living room, a dining room and a sunroom. There's parking on the driveway and out the back is a lawned garden with a patio.
33 Knocklyon Drive, Knocklyon
€495k Sherry FitzGerald Templeogue (01) 495 1111
The rear garden of 33 Knocklyon Drive backs onto the Elkwood playing pitch, so this is a peaceful spot, unless football disturbs your peace. The quite mature garden is 70ft long, with trees and hedging, but could do with taking in hand. It does offer room to extend the 1,087 sq ft dormer bungalow, and there's an adjoining garage. The ground floor consists of a living room at the front, with a fireplace, and quite a big (20ft by 13ft) eat-in kitchen at the back with patio doors. The first floor has three bedrooms and a bathroom.
12 The Crescent, Ballyboden
€450k Lisney Terenure (01) 492 4670
House-hunters who aren't fond of laborious gardening may be tempted by 12 The Crescent, Boden Park. It does have front and back gardens but they've been landscaped for low maintenance. Part of the back garden has been sacrificed for an extension creating an open-plan kitchen, dining room and family room, with doors to the garden. That room also has double doors to a lounge at the front with a slate fireplace. The first floor has three bedrooms, with the master ensuite, and the floor area is 1,432 sq ft.
16 Stocking Wood Rise
€425k Sherry FitzGerald Templeogue (01) 495 1111
Number 16 Stocking Wood Rise in Rathfarnham is at the end of a cul-de-sac, and although it's semi-detached on the right, there's nothing to the left of it but a big empty field. It's about five minutes' drive from Junction 12 of the M50. The internal dimensions come to 1,291 sq ft on three floors. The ground floor has a kitchen at the front and a living room at the back, with a fireplace and sliding patio doors. There are three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, and the en-suite master occupies the whole of the top floor.
