12 Butterfield Crescent, D14
€749k Lisney Terenure, (01) 492 4670

There's still an integral garage as an alternative source of extra space, and the ground floor also has a sitting room and a dining room, both with fireplaces and linked by sliding doors. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a bathroom with a separate toilet.
5 Grangebrook Vale, D16

Golfers will be torn between two clubs at Grangebrook Vale, which is more or less sandwiched between Grange Golf Club, founded in 1910, and Edmondstown Golf Club, founded in 1944. And if you're not partial to golf, you can play soccer, tennis and football at nearby Marlay Park. Number 5 Grangebrook Vale is a four-bed semi in a cul-de-sac overlooking a common green area. It's 1,149 sq ft in size and the bedrooms are all upstairs (one en-suite). On the ground floor are a two reception rooms - a living room and a dining room linked by double doors - and an eat-in kitchen with a separate utility.
24 Airpark Avenue, D16
€545k Keane Thompson, (01) 298 9384

It's part of a smallish enclave of houses set in a series of culs-de-sac off Stocking Lane. Number 24 is a three-storey house measuring 1,528 sq ft, with one en-suite bedroom on the first floor and another three bedrooms on the top floor. The first floor also has a living room, and there's a sitting room and a kitchen at ground level, the kitchen opening to a lawned back garden. It comes with parking for two cars and management fees are €130 a year.
1 White Church Abbey, D14
€795k DNG Rathfarnham, (01) 490 4666
White Church Abbey is a tiny cul-de-sac off Grange Park, and Number 1 is tucked into a corner so it gets the best of the seclusion available.

That includes four bedrooms on the first floor, two with a shared en-suite and one with French doors to a balcony overlooking the decked back garden. There are two dressing rooms upstairs as well that might be turned back into bedrooms. The ground floor has a dining room at the front and the kitchen at the back, with a sitting room between them, and there's a living room running the full length of the house.
