29 Halliday Square, D7 €395k
DNG Phibsboro, (01) 830 0989
Halliday Square is a little sliver of parkland at Arbour Hill, populated by ornamental trees and shrubs and surrounded by terraces of both old and new red-brick houses. Number 29 faces due north onto the square, giving it a south-facing back garden, where there's a lawn and flower beds. It's 807 sq ft in size, with the two bedrooms on the first floor along with the bathroom. The ground floor has a living room to the front, with a wooden floor and a stove in the fireplace, and a tile-floored kitchen at the back, with sliding doors to the garden. You can park on the front driveway, or walk down to the Museum Luas stop in about 10 minutes.
5 Hendrick Place, D7
€350k The Property Shop, (01) 838 8444
Hendrick Place is a cobbled street in historical Smithfield, just off Blackhall Place. Number 5 was reportedly built in the 18th century as a coach house for the Blue Coat School, now the Law Society of Ireland. It's been fully restored, keeping certain original features. Directly inside the door there's a lounge with varnished floorboards and a cast-iron fireplace. Through an archway is the kitchen with a breakfast bar, and there's also a downstairs toilet. The two bedrooms are upstairs along with a shower room. The internal space comes to 520 sq ft, and there's a paved yard out the back.
12 Sigurd Road, D7
€275k REA FitzGerald Chambers, (01) 671 2277
Stoneybatter's Viking past lives on in its street names. Sigurd Road, for instance, may be named after Sigurd the Stout of Orkney, Sigurd 'Snake Eye' Ragnarsson, or the mythological Sigurd celebrated in Wagner's Ring Cycle. One way or another, the name hints at a certain amount of glorious blood-letting. Sigurd Road is a peaceful place, however, and is lined with neat, early 20th-century artisan dwellings including Number 12, which is about halfway down the street on the west side. There's one reception room - a living room with a gas fire and a laminate floor - as well as a fitted kitchen with a door to the back yard, a shower room and two bedrooms.
92 Oxmantown Road, D7
€295k DNG Phibsboro, (01) 830 0989
Number 92 Oxmantown Road needs a serious facelift, but it does have reasonably promising bones that include original fireplaces and sash windows. It's 700 sq ft in size, with two reception rooms on the ground floor - a sitting room at the front and a dining room behind it - both with fireplaces. The kitchen and shower room are in a single-storey section out the back, and the two bedrooms are on the first floor - both with original fireplaces. It's about a kilometre from both Smithfield Square and the DIT campus at Grangegorman, while St Gabriel's National School is just around the corner at Cowper Street.
