€1.995m Savills North Dublin, (01) 853 0630
Built as a one-off in 1999, Culleenamore House in Mount Prospect Avenue, overlooks St Anne's Park to the north and is less than 100 metres from the sea. It's set well back from the road on a site of about half an acre lined with mature trees and shrubs. Inside it's 3,466 sq ft with four bedrooms on the first floor (two en-suite and one with a Juliet balcony) and the fifth at attic level, also en-suite. The ground floor has five reception rooms, no less, as well as a study along with a dual-aspect kitchen with French doors to the 90ft back garden.
74 Seville Place, North Dock, D1
€395k DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
Number 74 Seville Place is part of one of several short terraces built in 1890, according to the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage, "as a social housing development in response to the appalling housing conditions of the time". It has had a recent refurbishment and measures 1,281 sq ft on three floors. The ground floor has a living room and a lounge, both with fireplaces, and a pine-fitted galley kitchen. There are two bedrooms on the first floor and another three on the second. Out the back is a 195 sq ft yard with an exit to Third Avenue. Docklands station is a four-minute walk, and Connolly Station is around the corner at Amiens Street.
419 Clontarf Road, Clontarf, D3
€1.25m Gallagher Quigley, (01) 818 3000
The last time 419 Clontarf Road sold was in 2012, according to the Property Price Register, for €512,500. It's since had a complete makeover, although keeping its classic 1950s exterior. As well as decorative upgrades, Number 419 has also been hauled into the 21st century energy-wise, and now has a BER of B1. Including a chic, flat-roofed rear extension, it now measures 3,000 sq ft, and there are two block-built rooms at the end of the garden. The five bedrooms are on the upper two floors, with two en-suite. The ground floor has a kitchen and family room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the garden, a playroom and a front living room with sea views.
