Four on the market: red-bricks in Drumcondra
A choice of four charming red-brick properties on the market in Drumcondra.
15 Richmond Road, D3
€395k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton, (01) 804 0500
Richmond Road is over a kilometre long, stretching all the way from Drumcondra Road to Fairview Strand, along the northern banks of the Tolka. Number 15 is at the Drumcondra Road end, less than five minutes' walk from St Patrick's College and about three minutes from Fagan's Pub. It's at the end of a terrace and beside it is a laneway with access from there to the paved back garden. Inside it's 1,107 sq ft with three bedrooms upstairs. The ground floor has two reception rooms - a sitting room and a dining room, both with fireplaces - along with a breakfast room and galley kitchen at the back.
24 St Brigid’s Road Lower, D9
€475k Sherry FitzGerald Drumcondra, (01) 837 3737
You'll be living among the saints at St Brigid's Road Lower. It's close to the junction of St Clement's Road and St Anne's Road, and around the corner from both St Columba's Road and St Patrick's Road. St Ignatius Road is to the south, on the far side of the Royal Canal. Number 24 still has some original features but it's gained a conservatory extension and a converted attic, so that the floor area is now 1,270 sq ft with three upstairs bedrooms. The ground floor has a living room, a family room and an open-plan kitchen and conservatory/dining room, with sliding doors to a neat, tiered back garden.
6 Millmount Terrace, D9
€445k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton, (01) 804 0500
A family of eight brothers and sisters lived at 6 Millmount Terrace in 1911, aged between 18 and 31. They were all literate, almost all gainfully employed, and all single. Adding to the congestion was a 56-year-old aunt, also single. Presumably they all got along, as it must have been a tight squeeze. Since those days the house has been extended to 1,206 sq ft with four bedrooms upstairs. The ground floor has two reception rooms along with a dining room and kitchen. It's in a cul-de-sac overlooking the Tolka River, and has a paved back garden with pedestrian access.
14 Glandore Road, D9
€625k DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
Glandore Road is a sloping street rising from Griffith Avenue in the south to Sion Hill Road in the north, and it's lined with sturdy-looking semi-detached houses with adjoining garages. If you wanted to extend 14 Glandore Road above its current floor area of 1,507 sq ft, the garage might be the obvious place to start. There's also a long back garden but it would be a pity to spoil it as it's an inviting sort of wilderness, with a lawn and fruit trees. Inside there are two linked reception rooms, a kitchen, utility and garage, as well as a conservatory that has to be taken down. The first floor has three bedrooms (one en-suite).
