A selection of four properties currently available to buy close to the M50 motorway.
'Shalom', Hillcrest Road, D18
€450k Sherry FitzGerald Dundrum (01) 296 1822
The M50 (Junction 14) is about half a kilometre away from 'Shalom' in Sandyford, and there's room to park at least two cars in the driveway without blocking your semi-detached neighbour. Alternatively, the Luas stop at Glencairn is about 20 minutes' walk. 'Shalom' has four bedrooms upstairs (one en-suite), along with the main bathroom. Downstairs are two linked reception rooms - a sitting room and a dining room - opening onto the back garden. The eat-in kitchen is at the back of the house. Total floor area is 1,169 sq ft.
16 Ashington Avenue, Cabra, D7
€385k DNG Phibsboro (01) 830 0989
It's about a 20-minute walk from 16 Ashington Avenue to the train station at Ashtown. When you need to drive, Junction 6 of the M50 is about five minutes by car. And for more recreational journeys, the house is just 800 metres from the entrance to the Phoenix Park. Number 16 is 1,023 sq ft with three bedrooms on the first floor (one en-suite). Downstairs is a sitting room and a dining room, linked by pocket doors, and a fitted galley-style kitchen. All the décor needs updating. There's off-street parking on the driveway.
4 Castleknock Cottages, D15
€425k Sherry FitzGerald Castleknock (01) 820 1800
Castleknock Cottages is a terrace of 19th-century houses facing east at Castleknock Road, just north of the centre of Castleknock. Number 4, in the middle of the terrace, has been fully refurbished and is neat and tidy inside. Though it's small, at 840 sq ft, one of the two bedrooms even has a walk-in wardrobe and a fireplace. The porch leads into a small entrance hall, with a bedroom on the right and a living room on the left. Off a second hallway at the back can be found the kitchen, the bathroom and the other bedroom.

€399,950 Finnegan Menton (01) 614 7900
As the crow flies, 18 Beverly Crescent is less than 150 metres from the M50, but it will take about five minutes to drive to Junction 12. Beverly Crescent is one of a series of cul-de-sacs off Scholarstown Road. Number 18 is a four-bed semi-detached measuring 1,184 sq ft. That includes four bedrooms on the first floor (one en-suite).
