Four on the market: in a terrace in Dublin 3
A selection of four attractive terraced properties currently available to buy in Dublin 3.
32 Waverley Avenue, Fairview
€575k DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
Waverley Avenue was built in the first decade of the 20th century. It didn't exist at the time of the 1901 census but had arrived by 1911, when Number 32 was occupied by a family of Methodists. It's a pretty, well-proportioned house in the middle of a red-brick terrace, and has a floor area of 1,464 sq ft on three levels. The ground floor has two reception rooms linked by double doors as well as a skylit kitchen. There are two bedrooms on the first floor and another two at attic level. There's a lawned garden out the back with pedestrian access to a lane.
41 West Road, East Wall
€425k DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
According to the Property Price Register, 41 West Road last sold in July 2015, fetching €170,000. It's now back on the market at two-and-a-half times that price, but it has been renovated and extended. The renovation has made for a respectable B3 energy rating, and the architect-designed extension has taken the floor area up to 958 sq ft, with three bedrooms on the first floor (two en-suite). On the ground floor there's a sitting room at the front with an original cast-iron fireplace, and a modern, open-plan kitchen and living room at the back, with sliding glass doors to a paved courtyard with pedestrian access.
128 North Strand Road, North Strand
€450k Quillsen Fairview, (01) 833 5844
Number 128 North Strand Road is part of a short terrace of Georgian houses that were extant on the first-edition, 1830s OS map, at a time when the North Strand Road was relatively undeveloped. It's currently used as offices and flats, but would make a distinguished private house if converted, measuring 1,668 sq ft on two storeys over a raised basement. There are offices in the two interconnected reception rooms at entrance level, and another three rooms on the first floor. The basement consists of a one-bedroom flat with a kitchen and living room and a breakfast room, and it has its own entrance. The back garden is paved for parking.
2 Russell Avenue, Drumcondra
€250k Lisney Howth Road, (01) 853 6016
Russell Avenue is a narrow street running east to west from Croke Park towards Drumcondra village, lined with two-storey and single-storey red-brick houses. Number 2 is at the Croke Park end, close to the junction of Jones' Road, and has a garage in the back garden with vehicle access. The house, measuring 710 sq ft, needs full refurbishment but there are period features to work with, including high ceilings and fireplaces. There are two reception rooms right of the entrance hall, and a breakfast room, kitchen and bathroom at the back. Upstairs is one bedroom with a fireplace.
