39 Home Farm Road, €645k: Down on the farm in Dublin 9
Number 39 Home Farm Road in Dublin 9 arrived a little later than its neighbours to the east, having been built in the early 20th century. At the time this would have been quite a remote neighbourhood.
On the 1911 Ordnance Survey map, Home Farm Road comes to an abrupt end a short distance past the spot where Number 39 now stands.
Nowadays, of course, it's a much busier place, with schools, restaurants and bus stops nearby. Number 39 is just a few metres down the road from a convenience store, and from the wonderfully-named Homepharm pharmacy.
It's an attractive red-brick terraced house with bay windows, and there are period features inside including high ceilings and original fireplaces. It has, however, been modernised and extended, and now has a floor area of 1,942 sq ft.
To the right of the entrance hall on the ground floor there are two reception rooms, both with fireplaces and wood floors. The living room is to the front, with the bay window, and behind it, through the original sliding doors, is the dining room. You can reach the back garden from there by means of a set of French doors in a small extension.
The return at the back has been extended to create a slightly more spacious eat-in kitchen, with a utility room and guest toilet off it.
There are four bedrooms in all, one on the first-floor return and the other three on the first floor proper, one of which is en-suite. Above that, the converted attic is described as a study or playroom but may be used as a bedroom by the new owners, building regulations permitting.
The back garden is partly in gravel and has a 'garden room' at the end of it giving access to a lane behind the property.
Number 39 is for sale for €645,000 with Kelly Bradshaw Dalton (01) 804 0500.
