94 Kimmage Road West, D12
€625k Beirne & Wise, (01) 668 2268
Those who like to put their gardens to work will approve of what's been done out the back of 94 Kimmage Road West, Kimmage. The garden features a lawn, vegetable beds and a greenhouse and, as it's a roomy 140 ft long, there's still plenty of scope for more. The house measures 1,389 sq ft, including an integral garage. There are four bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, while the ground floor has a living room and dining room. The kitchen is small but adjoins a good-sized breakfast room with a picture window.
