€1.3m Sherry FitzGerald Ballsbridge (01) 269 8888
Eglinton Square is located off Eglinton Road, one of D4’s most prestigious streets named after the 19th century Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whose statue in St Stephen’s Green was destroyed by a bomb in 1958.
Built in 1978, No1 Eglinton Square is a three-storey, four-bedroom red-brick townhouse with a kitchen, dining room, sitting room, guest WC and family bathroom. It comes with full planning permission for a similar three-storey residence to be built on its side garden. Local schools include Alexandra College, Gonzaga, St Michael’s and Muckross Park.
25 Farney Park, Sandymount
€995,000 Bennetts Sandymount (01) 260 2520
While this classic 1930s three-bed semi doesn’t come on the market with planning permission attached for extending, there is plenty of precedent on the road, with several neighbours having converted their own adjoining garages and attics.
The current owners of No25 revamped the entrance hall, living room, sitting room, conservatory, kitchen/dining room, three bedrooms and shower room. The house is in walk-in condition, with plenty of potential to add to the existing 1,913 sq ft of living space by building up and out, subject to planning.

It has full planning permission for a two-storey, two-bedroom, 1,390 sq ft mews in the 125ft long back garden. It’s less than 10 minutes’ walk to Lansdowne Dart Station.
20 Lansdowne Road, Ballsbridge
€2.5m Sherry FitzGerald Ballsbridge (01) 269 8888
Built over 160 years ago, No20 Lansdowne Road has 3,790 sq ft of living space, with a ton of original features including ornate ceiling cornices, marble mantelpieces and window shutters.
Accessed either by a flight of granite steps leading up to the front door or directly via the side garden, the three-storey-over-basement house is a semi-detached Victorian property near the Aviva Stadium. With a 165ft-long back garden, it has potential to create a mews to the rear, subject to planning, as has been done in neighbouring properties on either side.
