65 Seaview Avenue East, D3
€340k Owen Reilly, (01) 0677 7100
The rear garden of No65 Seaview Avenue East backs onto the East Wall Youth five-a-side pitch. The garden consists of a decked sort of terrace with bamboo screening, though it can't be reached from any of the living rooms, only from the en suite master bedroom at the back of the house. The living room is at the front, with the kitchen behind it. The second and third bedrooms are on the first floor, along with a shower room. It's 936 sq ft in all. There's a sweet little front garden as well, in gravel with a lone purple maple and hedging.
15 Caledon Road, D3
€275k DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
On the night of the 1911 census, the occupants of House No15 Caledon Road were a machinist at the iron works, his wife and their nine children, six daughters and three sons, ranging in age from 19 to two years. It's hard to see how so many people could fit into houses of this size. No15 measures 667 sq ft with two bedrooms upstairs, along with a bathroom. The ground floor has a small (roughly 8ft square) sitting room and an open-plan living room and kitchen, connected by both an archway and a hatch. The kitchen has a glass door to a paved back garden facing southwest.
72 Ravensdale Road, D3
€350k DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
A tiny private hair salon can be found within the four walls of No72 Ravensdale Road. If you're not in the coiffeur line, however, the room could be used as a playroom or study instead. No72 was renovated and extended in 2010, the extension adding a nice bright kitchen at the back, with skylights and French doors to the paved back garden. There's also a utility and store room, which will come in handy in this 872 sq ft property. At the front is a living room with a cast-iron fireplace, and there are two bedrooms upstairs along with a bathroom with a claw-foot bath.
42 Moy Elta Road, D3
€265k Felicity Fox, (01) 633 4431
A single-storey extension has been built at the back of No42 Moy Elta Road, boosting the floor area to 646 sq ft and allowing for two reception rooms as well as a kitchen, which is quite a lot of living space for a house this size. The sitting room is at the front and has a fireplace, and behind that is a living room, also with a fireplace and with the stairs to the first floor. The galley kitchen is at the back, along with the bathroom and a door to the rear yard. The two bedrooms are upstairs and both have their original fireplaces.
