Four on the market: in Killester, D5
A selection of four properties available in the popular Killester area of Dublin.
18 The Bramblings €450k
DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
The Bramblings is a horseshoe shaped cul-de-sac of townhouses arranged around a pleasant green area colloquially known as Bramblings Park. It's a good spot to find shade on a hot day and have a chinwag with the neighbours. Number 18 is at the end of a terrace of four, and measures 872 sq ft, now needing a little modernising. The ground floor has a living room with a fireplace, with double doors leading to a kitchen at the back, where there's access to the paved back garden. Upstairs are three bedroom, one with a shower cubicle, and a bathroom with a shower over the bath.
288 Howth Road
€795k Sherry FitzGerald Killester, (01) 833 6555
Nominally 288 Howth Road is a dormer bungalow, but for those who can't be bothered with stairs, everything you need really is on the ground floor. At dormer level is a study - useful for a bit of privacy when you want it but not essential. Back downstairs there's one main reception room - a living room with a stove in the fireplace - but as there are four bedrooms as well, you could use one of those as your study instead. Double doors in the living room lead into the kitchen, where there are sliding doors to the back garden. Out there you'll find a patio and lawn with some mature trees.
13 Abbey Park
€415k DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
There's a long, lawned garden out the back of 13 Abbey Park, at the end of which is a block-built garage giving onto a rear laneway. The selling agents suggest this could be converted to a studio or home office. There's more usable accommodation to be clawed from the house itself as well, as it has a floored and skylit attic. As it is, Number 13 measures 1,033 sq ft with three bedrooms on the first floor, two of them with original tiled fireplaces. Downstairs there are two reception rooms, both with fireplaces - a living room at the front and a dining room at the back. This opens into a kitchen with a skylight and a door to the garden.
232 Howth Road
€650k Lisney Howth Road, (01) 853 6016
The 155ft back garden of 232 Howth Road stretches all the way down to the DART tracks, and Killester station is only two minutes' walk from the house. The garden consists of a lawn and a big walled patio, which you reach from the breakfast room next to the kitchen. There's also a dining room and a living room on the ground floor, communicating through an archway, along with three bedrooms. Number 232 gained an unusual first-floor extension at a time when you could get away with anything in planning. There are two more bedrooms up there and quite a lot of attic storage. The size is 1,453 sq ft in all.
