12 Armstrong Street
 

Number 12 Armstrong Street is a handily-situated pied-à-terre not much more than 100 metres from the Grand Canal and Clanbrassil Street. It measures 538 sq ft in what is essentially a two-up, two-down layout, although the ground-floor living space is an open-plan sitting room, dining room and kitchen with a gas-fitted fireplace. Off this there's a small rear hallway with a shower room and a door to a rear yard. The first floor has two bedrooms, a double and a single, and the double has a cast-iron fireplace.

18 Larkfield Grove
 

Larkfield Grove might occasionally be described (not least by Google Maps) as being in Kimmage. It's well within the historical townland of Harold's Cross West, however, and 10 minutes' walk from Harold's Cross Park. Number 18 Larkfield Grove can call a sizeable chunk of the townland its own, having a 108ft garden out the back - very nicely treated, with hedging, gravel pathways and a deck. Inside, the house is 1,001 sq ft, not including a 96 sq ft converted attic with a skylight. Below that are two first-floor bedrooms and a bathroom, while the ground floor has a kitchen at the front and two interconnected reception rooms at the back.

8 Parkview Avenue
 

Parkview Avenue is a T-shaped cul-de-sac opening from Harold's Cross Road, just across from Harold's Cross Park. There's also a pedestrian exit from the end of the street next to Number 8 onto Grosvenor Lane. Number 8, at the end of the terrace, is 1,216 sq ft and has period features including decorative plasterwork and original cast-iron fireplaces in three of the four bedrooms. The lounge and living room downstairs also have fireplaces, and there's another in the breakfast room, which has a kitchenette off it. The back garden is west-facing and surrounded by stone walls.

108 Harold's Cross Cottages
 

Having already been extended, 108 Harold's Cross Cottages still measures only 603 sq ft - all on one polygonal-shaped floor. It gives a reasonable appearance of space, however, because there are high ceilings on the ground floor and a bright, open-plan layout. To the front is a living room with a gas-fitted fireplace and the kitchen is through an archway beyond that, with French doors to a gravelled back yard with a timber cabin. There are two bedrooms, one at the back and the other in the middle of the house - landlocked but lit by a skylight, and hence officially a study.
