These four properties all offer close proximity to the UCD campus.
8 Glenomena Grove, Booterstown
€695k DNG Rock Road, (01) 283 2900
Glenomena Grove is a keyhole-shaped cul-de-sac built in what was formerly the long rear garden of a manor called Stone House, of which nothing now remains but the entrance gates and pillars. No8 has been extended to 1,722 sq ft and now has an irregular layout, with a choice of front doors. The main door leads to the entrance hall and three of the reception rooms, one linked to a sunroom. The second front door opens into the kitchen, with a family room beyond it. The first floor has four bedrooms (two en suite). There's parking on the gravelled front driveway, while the back garden has paving and artificial grass.
25 Nutgrove Park, Clonskeagh, D14
€810k Property Team O'Mahony, (01) 298 3500
It's a pleasant, 10-minute walk down to UCD from 25 Nutgrove Park. You'll head down tree-lined Wynnsward Drive, passing playing fields and tennis courts on your left and right, where you can observe the contest of athletic and not-so athletic youth. No25 measures 1,304 sq ft and is in good decorative order, with a classic formality to its arrangements. The main living room is a ground-floor lounge and dining room knocked through, with a bay window, fireplace and sliding doors to a sun-dappled back garden. The ground floor also has a skylit kitchen and a separate breakfast room. There are four bedrooms upstairs.
47 Woodbine Road, Booterstown
€895k Sherry FitzGerald Ballsbridge, (01) 269 8888
No47 is unique among its neighbours at Woodbine Road, the surrounding houses looking nothing like it. Built in 1949, it's chocolate-box cute, with six-over-six-pane sash windows, green shutters and a heavy, hipsterish beard of ivy. Its rear garden backs almost directly onto Elm Park Golf Club, although the club house is more than a kilometre away by road, and it's seven minutes' walk from the entrance to UCD. There's a sitting room to the front and a dining room at the back, separate from the kitchen. The first floor has four bedrooms and there's also an adjoining garage, in a total floor area of 1,335 sq ft.
6 Owenstown Park, Mount Merrion
€995k Lisney Leeson Street, (01) 662 4511
If you turn left at the front gate of 6 Owenstown Park and head north, within about five minutes you'll hit the UCD Sutherland School of Law, named after former Attorney General Peter Sutherland who died in January. If you turn right you'll reach Foster's Avenue, where you can catch a 47 bus to take you towards Trinity College instead. The same family has owned No6 for more than 60 years, and they've cultivated a lovely back garden which is 124ft long. The house itself is 1,762 sq ft with four first-floor bedrooms. The ground floor has three reception rooms, a kitchen, a long (20ft) utility room and a garage.
