Mulberry House

You'd never be stuck for provisions at Mulberry House in Blackrock, Co Dublin as it's right next door to a convenience shop and post office. Built in the 1950s, it's been brought up to 2,056 sq ft with an extension at the back that consists of a big skylit kitchen with folding doors to a sunroom, as well as a wet room. The ground floor also has a sitting room, dining room and a living room. There are four bedrooms upstairs, with a bathroom and toilet. Even with the extension, the back garden still measures 85ft by 33ft.

39 Aideen Drive

It may look like a tiny bungalow from the outside but 39 Aideen Drive is a sizeable house, with 1,044 sq ft stretching a long way back from the front elevation. It also has a 300 sq ft studio at the end of the garden, with one main skylit room and a shower room. The house itself has two bedrooms, one with French doors opening to an inner courtyard. The living room is at the front and out the back is a kitchen and family room measuring over 25ft by 20ft, with a glazed wall opening to the garden. Upstairs are two attic rooms.

29 South Avenue

The owners of 29 South Avenue were in luck when it came to building their extension. Even after putting up a roomy kitchen and dining room out the back, the garden is still 100ft. It has a large patio, a lawn and a big old oak tree, and there's still room for an office, utility room and shed at the end of it. The house has four first-floor bedrooms, one is big enough to add an en-suite. Downstairs there's a living room and family room, plus the kitchen and dining room. There's also an adjoining garage. Total floor area is 1,851 sq ft.

Number 37 Harold's Cross Road is a little over 200 metres from the Grand Canal, so you can walk to St Stephen's Green in about 25 minutes.

There's also a living room with a fireplace, and two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. The back garden has a lawn and raised a deck.
