Four on the market in the East Wall, Dublin 3
A choice of four properties currently available to buy in the ideal central location of East Wall in Dublin.
11 Church Street East, East Wall
€295k Sherry FitzGerald City Centre, (01) 643 1400
Small as it was, Number 11 was split in two in the early 20th century. On the night of the 1901 census, there were six people in each part of the house, many of them quay labourers. Number 11 is 786 sq ft on two floors, and has been completely refurbished since those days. The ground floor has the kitchen, living room and family room (or spare bedroom). The first floor has a bedroom and bathroom, and there's also an attic room. Out the back is a patio garden. Spencer Dock Luas stop is a five-minute walk away.
6 Church Square, East Wall
€245k DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
Church Square, just off Church Road, is a small development of modern townhouses. Number 6 is a mid-terrace house of 646 sq ft, with two bedrooms. These are both on the first floor, along with the family bathroom, and there's an attic above. On the ground floor, the front door opens directly into an open-plan living room and kitchen/dining room, with an open fire and a door to the terraced back garden. There's a parking space included with the property, and it comes with a €300 annual management charge.
138 East Wall Road, East Wall
€295k Coldwell Banker Estates, (01) 411 0012
The old, vast Cahill's Printing works at East Wall Road was destroyed by fire in 2007, and is now making way for a Lidl supermarket. The occupants of Number 138 East Wall Road, right next to the site, will have their choice of German discount produce, as Aldi is just across the street. Number 138 is a two-storey end-terrace house measuring 1,076 sq ft, although the selling agents point out there may be scope to extend it to the side, with planning permission. It's less than 500 metres from Fairview Park, across the Tolka River.
48 Church Road, East Wall
€275k DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
A gable-fronted former Corpo home, this house has solid oak floors downstairs, having undergone a smart restoration. The 657 sq ft of accommodation includes an entrance hall, living room, kitchen and dining room, an upstairs bathroom and two bedrooms. Located on the southern end of the road it has the advantage of not being overlooked at the front. The neighbours have added a rear extension, setting a precedent. Dublin city centre, the IFSC and Eastpoint business park are all within a 10-minute walk.
