Four on the market: in Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin
A choice of four properties currently on the market in the coastal town of Dun Laoghaire.
2 Ard na Gréine, Tivoli Road
€750k Lisney Dun Laoghaire, (01) 280 6820
Number 2 Ard na Gréine is part of a dignified terrace of red-brick 19th-century houses facing south over Tivoli Road, near the corner of Tivoli Terrace East. It's 2,476 sq ft on two storeys with a raised basement and is in good order, with period features including plasterwork, fireplaces and window shutters. At entrance level are two reception rooms, one of which has been used as a bedroom and has an en-suite shower. The kitchen is on the return and there's another kitchen in the basement along with two more bedrooms. The remaining three bedrooms are on the first floor. Out the back is a pretty gravelled garden with climbers and flowerbeds.
2 Crosthwaite Hall
€845k Sherry FitzGerald Dun Laoghaire, (01) 284 4422
Built in the 1990s in the Victorian style, Crosthwaite Hall consists of a terrace of five three-storey houses at Lower Glenageary Road. Essentially Number 2 has two main rooms on each floor, in a total area of 2,099 sq ft. The entrance is on the first floor, where there are two interconnected reception rooms - a living room and a dining room - as well as a smallish study. The ground floor has a family room at the front, with two sets of French doors to the front garden, and a kitchen at the back giving onto the back garden. There are two en-suite bedrooms on the first floor and a converted attic above that.
Ventour House, 1 Corrig Avenue
€1.3m DNG Dun Laoghaire, (01) 230 1616
Ventour House has been used as offices, which means a planning application if you intend to return it to residential use. What you will get is a 3,498 sq ft detached family home on two storeys with a raised basement, one full of authentic features such as ornate plasterwork, fireplaces and stained glass. There are four reception rooms at entrance level and another four in the basement, while the first floor has four or five bedrooms, one with a balcony. There's a leafy garden out the front and a parking area at the back. It's opposite Dun Laoghaire Garda Station and the courthouse, and around the corner from George's Street Upper.
12 Crofton Avenue
€495k Lisney Dun Laoghaire, (01) 280 6820
As the crow flies, 12 Crofton Avenue is only 100 metres from Dun Laoghaire Harbour. It's about a five-minute walk away though, as you'll have to cross the railway tracks to get there, which means the station is only three minutes' away. Number 12 is currently set up for office use on all three floors but the agents suggest it could be converted. There's one large room and a couple of store rooms in the basement, two reception rooms on the ground floor, and three more rooms upstairs. The dimensions are 1,691 sq ft inside and there's a small walled yard out the back.
