Four on the market with five-bedrooms in Dublin 6
A selection of four well-appointed properties in the Dublin 6 area of the capital.
4 Palmerston Gdns, Rathmines
€1.595m Sherry FitzGerald Rathmines (01) 496 6066
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, Rathgar
€1.1m DNG Terenure (01) 490 9000
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' 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 Sq, Ranelagh
€1.2m Felicity Fox (01) 633 4431
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.
