1 Gartan Avenue, Glasnevin
€825k DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
For all of Alexander Strain's excellent work as a builder, there was not much he could do about Edwardian ideas of energy-efficiency. No1 Gartan Avenue has had to be stripped back entirely and properly insulated to 21st-century standards, while getting a complete refurbishment. Its original features are intact, however, and its BER is now C1. It's 2,033 sq ft on three floors, with the upper two floors having the five bedrooms (one en suite). The ground floor has the two traditional interlinked reception rooms and a rear kitchen giving onto a pretty west-facing back garden.

€695K DNG PHIBSBORO, (01) 830 0989
The fifth bedroom in 8 Cliftonville Road is in the converted attic and has an en suite shower. The main bathroom is on the first floor along with the other four bedrooms, and has a corner Jacuzzi bath. The ground floor has two reception rooms and an extended, skylit kitchen with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors to the garden. The house measures 1,651 sq ft in total, in good condition. In the garden is a garage with adjoining office, kitchenette and toilet, and from there you can get to the rear laneway by means of an electric roller door.
55 Glandore Road, Drumcondra
€745K KELLY BRADSHAW DALTON, (01) 804 0500
Glandore Road opens from the eastern end of Griffith Avenue, near Marino, and ends at Sion Hill Road at the entrance to Maryfield College. It's lined on both sides with solid-looking pre-war semi-detached houses, most of which have converted their garage. The garage at No55 is intact, however, opening to the kitchen at the back of the house. Off the kitchen is a separate breakfast room and there's also a living room and a dining room on the ground floor, the latter giving onto a sunroom. The five bedrooms are all upstairs, in a total floor area of 1,619 sq ft. The back garden is 130ft long.
Lyndhurst, 144 Grace Park Road
€825K DNG FAIRVIEW, (01) 833 1802
The front garden of 'Lyndhurst' in Drumcondra has been almost completely paved, apart from some discreet flower borders. The back garden more than makes up for it though. It's 130ft long and showing its age beautifully, with lawns, a curved path and mature trees. The house has been extended above the garage at the side, and has a single-storey rear extension as well, so the floor area is now 1,765 sq ft. As well as the garage, the ground floor has two reception rooms and an extended kitchen and sunroom giving onto the garden. The five bedrooms (one with an en suite shower) are upstairs.
