Four on the market: in Glasnevin
A choice of four properties currently for sale in the Glasnevin area of north Dublin.
94 Glasnevin Ave, D11
€395k Quillsen Glasnevin (01) 850 0900
There's room in 94 Glasnevin Avenue to keep a houseful of students if the need arises. The house is almost exactly a kilometre from DCU, and it has five bedrooms. With that there's a garage on the ground floor that hasn't been converted. Elsewhere downstairs there's a lounge and a dining room, both with fireplaces, a kitchen and a utility room. The five bedrooms are upstairs, with a bathroom and separate toilet. There's off-street parking on the drive, and out the back is quite a pleasant lawned garden.
33 Lindsay Road, D9
€895k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton (01) 804 0500
Alexander Strain built this handsome red-brick house back in around 1910, and it still has many of the features he installed, such as the open-string staircase, bay windows, original fireplaces, and ceiling cornicing. It needs a little refurbishment but the bones are good. The floor area is 1,666 sq ft and there are four bedrooms. The ground floor has two linked reception rooms and there's an extension on the lower return level for a kitchen and dining room. Out the back is an unruly garden with plenty of promise.
32 Pinewood Crescent, D11
€395k Sherry FitzGerald Drumcondra (01) 837 3737
Out the back of 32 Pinewood Crescent is a 62ft-long lawn. You could use it to play petanque, or you could half the mowing required by filling it up with shrubs. The house itself is 1,205 sq ft, so some of the garden might make way for an extension. It's semi-detached and has three first-floor bedrooms. On the ground floor there's a living room with a fireplace, and a kitchen and dining room, just under 22ft by 12ft, with patio doors. Off the kitchen there's a utility room and store opening into an attached garage.
17 Maolbuille Road, D11
€394k Quillsen Glasnevin (01) 850 0900
Like its semi-detached neighbour, 17 Maolbuille Road faces the street at an angle, giving it angular gardens front and back. The floor plan of the house is perfectly regular though. On the ground floor it consists of two main rooms. One is a lounge running the length of the house, with windows front and back. The other is a kitchen and dining room, where there's a door to the back garden. The first floor has three bedrooms and a bathroom. You can park on the front driveway, and there's side access to the lawned back garden.
