The owners of 15 James Street North, North Strand, have transformed a drab and faded end-of-terrace house into something quite chic and special. The entire ground floor is now open-plan, with a 333 sq ft living room, dining room and kitchen, and a large roof window. There's also a utility room and a small study. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a bathroom. The total size is 861 sq ft, and it has a paved back garden. The modernisation also included upgrading the insulation and heating, so it now has a B3 energy rating.

The total floor space is 905 sq ft.
108A Eaton Wood, Shankill
€290k Beirne & Wise, (01) 288 0900
This house, in Co Dublin, is essentially an extension to Number 108, and is consequently a rather odd shape, being wider at the back than the front. It's 1,012 sq ft with, on the ground floor, a kitchen/dining room, guest toilet, and a living room with double doors to the back garden. The first floor has two bedrooms, one en-suite, and the main bathroom. The back is about 30 ft square, with a lawn, patio and some mature evergreens providing privacy. It is close to the railway line, and Shankill Dart station is about 10 minutes' walk away.
