9 The Heights, Malahide, Co Dublin
€640k Noel Kelly, (01) 846 2752
According to the Property Price Register, No 9 The Heights in Robswall, was last sold in late 2016 for €572,500. It's part of a terrace of Georgian-style three-storey townhouses and is less than a kilometre from the Coast Road and Malahide beach. The main living areas are on the first floor, with a living room to the front and a kitchen and dining room at the back. The second floor has a bathroom and three bedrooms (one ensuite). The fourth bedroom is at ground-floor level, along with a study and a separate store room with entrance. The floor area comes to 1,884 sq ft. There are two designated parking spaces.
5 Mayville Terrace, Leslie Avenue,Dalkey, Co Dublin
€850k Sherry FitzGerald Dalkey, (01) 275 1000
The houses at Mayville Terrace are thought, by the Dictionary of Irish Architects, to have been designed by James Purcell Wrenn and built by Crampton in the first few years of the 20th century. They're clustered at the northernmost end of Leslie Avenue, about 100 metres from the sea. No 5 is the second-to-last house in the terrace and measures 1,389 sq ft including an attic conversion with an unadulterated coastal view. The first floor has three bedrooms and separate bathroom and shower room, and on the ground floor are three reception rooms and a kitchen with an Aga.
4 Mount Auburn, Killiney, Co Dublin
€895k Lisney Dun Laoghaire, (01) 280 6820
Sea views are to be had from the rear of this five-bedroom house in a cul-de-sac off the Wyvern estate. There's nothing to complain about from the front either, as the houses surround a small but pleasant park with mature trees and flowerbeds. No 4 measures 2,648 sq ft and all five bedrooms are on the first floor, one with an ensuite. Downstairs there are four reception rooms along with a kitchen and separate breakfast room. It's about 10 minutes' walk from here to Killiney Hill park and about 20 minutes to the nearest DART station, which is Dalkey.
The Den, Ballybetagh Rd, Kilternan, D18
€995k Sherry FitzGerald Foxrock, (01) 289 4386
The Den is in the foothills of the Dublin and Wicklow mountains, and at about 190 metres above sea level, it's able to command long views all the way down to the coast. What stands on the one-acre site now is a 1980s-built dormer bungalow in good condition. But there's also planning permission (granted in 2015) to demolish all that and replace it with an architect-designed two-storey house. If you baulk at that, you can keep the 2,153 sq ft house that's there, which includes four bedrooms upstairs (one ensuite) and the kitchen, study, living room, dining room and sunroom downstairs. There's also a granny flat on the site.
