6 Seafort Villas, Sandymount
€495k Sherry FitzGerald Ballsbridge, (01) 269 8888
Seafort Villas is a little T-shaped cul-de-sac around the corner from Sandymount Green. Number 6, a tiny (615 sq ft) but pretty redbrick two-storey, is on the corner with Seafort Avenue, a minute's walk from the centre of Sandymount. It's a classic, two-up-two-down house with two bedrooms on its first floor. At ground floor level there's a living room with a cast-iron stove, and behind that an eat-in kitchen with a shower room off it. There is a small gravelled courtyard back garden, with roses climbing the walls.
Dodder View Cottages, Ballsbridge
€440k Quirke Estate Agents, (01) 669 0500
Despite its name, Number 16 Dodder View Cottages doesn't directly overlook the river. While that may be an aesthetic disadvantage, it's likely to be a blessing if the Dodder gets too big for its banks again. This mid-terrace is small, at 594 sq ft, but it has been well cared for. There are two bedrooms, both on the first floor, and one has an en-suite toilet. The shower room is downstairs, along with a living room/dining room and a fitted kitchen. Between those two is a passage with a door to the back yard.
99 Pembroke Cottages, Donnybrook
€440k Lynam Auctioneers, (01) 296 5374
If you turn right outside Number 99 Pembroke Cottages and walk for about 100 metres, you'll reach Herbert Park, where you can bowl, play tennis, or peer into the carp pond. Number 99 is a titchy 495 sq ft, but there may be scope to extend it a little into the back garden. It has a living room inside the front door, with a fireplace and a pale wood floor, and the two bedrooms are off that. Straight ahead is an archway to the kitchen, and beyond that is the bathroom and French doors to the paved and gravelled rear garden.
6 Leukos Road, Ringsend
€395k Bennetts Sandymount, (01) 260 2520
Leukos Road is one of a warren of little streets scattered around Irishtown Stadium where, as well as a full-size pitch, there's a running track, five-a-side pitches and a gym. The houses here are all three-storey, and Number 6 has three bedrooms - two on the first floor and one on the second. The ground floor has a living room, and a kitchen and dining room opening into a skylit extension with doors to the garden. Total floor area is 1,173 sq ft. There's a small paved front garden, and a paved back garden with a shed.
