In 1911, soon after 18 Ashfield Park in Terenure was built, it housed two middle-class Protestant families. A Methodist widow lived there with her schoolteacher daughter, and a Presbyterian agricultural engineer and his wife were at the same address.
The house still has all the hallmarks of respectability today. It's a genteel semi-detached of 1,510 sq ft, with interconnecting reception rooms. A lounge with a cast-iron fireplace and bay window communicates via folding doors to a dining room. There's also a TV room with a solid-fuel stove, a galley kitchen and a guest toilet on this level.
On the first-floor return is a bathroom with claw-foot bath, while there are three bedrooms on the first floor proper and a fourth on the second-floor return.
To the front is a small railed garden, while the back garden is mostly paved but with plenty of greenery. A garage at the end gives access to a lane behind the house.
It's on the market for €750,000 with DNG Terenure (01) 490 9000.
