Four on the market: Three-beds in D7
A choice of four impressive properties currently on the market in Dublin 7.
51 Cabra Drive, Cabra, D7
€525k Mason Estates Phibsboro (01) 830 4000
There's plenty of scope to extend No51 Cabra Drive, as it has both a garage to the side (and some of the neighbours have built over their garages) and a 70ft back garden with a lawn and fruit trees.
As it stands, the house measures 1,055 sq ft and has its three bedrooms on the first floor, along with a shower room. The ground floor has a bay-windowed sitting room to the front and a dining room behind that, both with tiled fireplaces. The kitchen is at the end of the hall and leads to a dual-aspect breakfast room at the back.
2 Killarney Parade, Phibsboro, D7
€450k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton (01) 804 0500
Two derelict houses were demolished in 2008 to make way for No2 Killarney Parade, which is finished in red brick to try to blend in with its neighbours.
It's on the corner of Kenmare Parade and its living room is dual-aspect, looking over both streets. On the opposite side of the entrance hall is the kitchen, which gives on to a south-facing paved courtyard with its own exit to the street.
The first floor has the three bedrooms (one en suite) and a shower room, in an overall floor area of 1,029 sq ft.
62 Villa Park Road, Navan Road, D7
€595k DNG Phibsboro (01) 830 0989

It's on a corner site, fronts on to a pocket park and has been extended to 1,485 sq ft. The extension has allowed for an open-plan kitchen, dining room and family room at the back, with skylights, a solid-fuel stove and French doors to the back garden.
The ground floor also has a separate living room with a cast-iron fireplace and the three bedrooms are upstairs (one en suite). The attic has also been converted with eaves storage and skylights.
