1 Gartan Avenue, D9 €850k
Sherry FitzGerald Drumcondra, (01) 837 3737
Gartan Avenue, between Lindsay Road and Iona Road, is a short street of 10 handsome red-brick houses built by Alexander Strain in the first decade of the 20th century. Number 1, at the end of a terrace, still has original features including ceiling coving, decorative plasterwork and fireplaces. The ground floor has a living room and a dining room, both with marble fireplaces and linked by double doors, as well as a breakfast room and kitchen. There are four bedrooms on the first floor and the fifth is at attic level. The floor area is 1,798 sq ft and there's an 80ft garden out the back.
St Mobhi House, St Mobhi Drive, D9
€1.2m Move Home, (01) 884 4690
The houses at St Mobhi Drive look south towards the Tolka River with the spire of Our Lady of Dolours church on the opposite bank. St Mobhi House is detached, with some mature trees in the long front garden. Built in the 1920s, it was refurbished and extended about 10 years ago and now measures 2,583 sq ft on three floors. The five bedrooms are on the upper two floors, with two en-suite. Back on the ground floor there are two reception rooms - one at the front, with a fireplace and the other at the back with French doors to the garden - as well as a conservatory and extended kitchen.
30 Willow Park Road, D11
€495k Sherry FitzGerald Drumcondra (01) 837 3737
Although it's described as being well maintained, 30 Willow Park Road needs refurbishment, and a new owner may want to review the aesthetic considerations of an extension over the garage added in the 1970s. Its floor area is now 1,227 sq ft and it has a 67ft back garden, mostly paved and with a block-built shed. As well as the garage, the ground floor has a living room and a dining room, both with electric coal-effect fireplaces, and a kitchen that gives onto a side passage leading to the garage and garden. The five bedrooms are upstairs along with a shower room and separate toilet.
30 Crescent Villas, D9
€1.1m Lisney Howth Road (01) 853 6016
Like all the other houses built by Alexander Strain, 30 Crescent Villas has attractive and durable features including an open-string stairs, high ceilings and plasterwork, and it's been kept in very good order by its current owners. It's on the corner of Crawford Avenue and only about a 10-minute walk from Drumcondra train station. It also has a garage in the back garden for off-street parking. The ground floor has two reception rooms and a kitchen that opens into a conservatory. Three of the bedrooms are on the first floor (with one en-suite) and the other two are on the second floor. The total floor area is 1,819 sq ft.
