4 Palmerston Gardens

There are pretty Edwardian red-brick houses on either side of Palmerston Gardens, which veers south off Cowper Road in Rathmines. Number 4 dates from 1909 and has been owned by the same family for many years. They've preserved its period features but also extended it to 2,302 sq ft, with five first-floor bedrooms (one en-suite). The ground floor has a drawing room, family room and dining room all linked together, as well as a separate living room and kitchen, and the back garden is 70ft long.

14 Fairfield Park

Out the front of 14 Fairfield Park is the eponymous park itself - a smallish but pleasant public green area lined with mature ornamental trees and plenty of benches. Number 14 itself has a very pretty garden out the back, with a lawn and an abundance of flower shrubs. You can get to the garden through French doors in the dining room, one of two ground-floor reception rooms. The other is a lounge at the front, inside the striking Gothic-arched front door. The five bedrooms are upstairs, and four have cast-iron fireplaces.

‘Kinvara’, 2 Temple Rd, Dartry

€1.95m  Sherry FitzGerald Ranelagh (01) 496 9909

'Kinvara', 2 Temple Rd, Dartry

'Kinvara' is across the street from the Trinity Hall student residences at the corner of Dartry Road and Temple Road, but is shielded from the thoroughfare - and the neighbours - by mature trees. It's a robust detached house built in 1942 and extended to some 2,690 sq ft. There are four bedrooms on the first floor and an en-suite room at attic level. The ground floor has the kitchen and breakfast room with three interconnected reception rooms - a family room, a living room and a dining room - with a conservatory off.

10 Mountpleasant Square

Number 10 Mountpleasant Square is a five-bedroom house in a pinch. The décor needs updating but there are plenty of Georgian features to work with and an ample floor area of 3,078 sq ft. It's on three storeys over a raised basement, and there's currently a one-bedroom apartment in the basement with its own front door. Upstairs at entrance level there's a reception room at the front, in use as a bedroom, along with a kitchen. On the first floor there's another reception room and bedroom, with two more bedrooms on the top floor.
