Four on the market: in Phibsboro, Dublin 7
A choice of four properties currently on the market and available to buy in Phibsboro.
13 Shandon Drive
€549k DNG, (01) 8300989
Shandon is a quiet part of Phibsboro that's very popular with families. Number 13 would make a good family home for anyone who likes to be close to the city but still wants a large garden. Although it has been renovated many times in its lifetime, it hasn't lost its period charm with its original fireplaces, decorative plasterwork and high ceilings. Inside, there are two reception rooms, a kitchen, three bedrooms and a bathroom. The rear garden is large and south-facing, and there is a driveway to the side of the house for parking.
15 Cabra Road
€795k Property Team Lappin Estates, (01) 8825730
This property will most likely be bought as an investment, as it is currently laid out in nine self-contained flats. Houses at this end of Cabra Road are mostly rentals but there is nothing to stop a new owner converting the property into one large home. The flats inside were refurbished in the last 15 years so aren't in a bad state, but could do with some freshening up. All windows are double-glazed, there is a security intercom, and all flats are individually metered. It currently takes in €65,500 a year in rent.
Apartment 5, Dakota Court
€275k Mason Estates, (01) 8304000
This two-bed, two-bath apartment would be an ideal pad for city workers. It's a ground-floor unit on the banks of the Royal Canal. Inside there is a hot-press with storage closet, two double bedrooms, an en-suite bathroom, a shower room, living room with balcony and kitchen. There is laminate flooring throughout, and electric storage heating. The kitchen is fitted with wall and floor units, and an integrated oven and hob. There are communal gardens and a designated underground parking space.
13 Shandon Park
€475k, Sherry Fitzgerald , (01) 8373737
This mid-terrace redbrick in the heart of Phibsboro could be transformed into a great family home with a little bit of hard work. It has a living room, family room and kitchen on the ground floor, while upstairs are three bedrooms, two double, one single, and a bathroom. Many period features are still intact, like the stained glass door and the coving. Outside, the back garden is south-facing and there is a block-built garage. The city is within walking distance or you can choose from at least 10 bus routes that run through Phibsboro.
