A choice of four impressive properties in south Dublin which could be yours for less than €1 million.
'Edenvale', 35 Crosthwaite Park West
€995k Sherry FitzGerald Dun Laoghaire, (01) 284 4422
Number 35 Crosthwaite Park West in Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin is one of six 20th-century houses arriving a little later than their neighbours to the north - those 19th century terraces overlooking the park. It has pleasant leafy views and is only two doors down from the house where John Millington Synge lived between 1890 and 1906. It has grown in size to 1,668 sq ft, with an architect-designed extension adding a new kitchen and dining room with a glass corner door giving into the lawned back garden. The ground floor also has a living room, a family room and a study along with one bedroom. The other three bedrooms (one en-suite) are upstairs.
Riverside, Old Bridge Road, D16
€995k Lisney Terenure, (01) 492 4670
Although its address is given as Old Bridge Road in Templeogue, Riverside is actually just on the corner of Firhouse Road, which the Ordnance Survey will tell you is in the little-known townland of Butterfield. The accuracy of the name Riverside is not contested, though, as the River Dodder is at the end of the 170ft back garden. The house measures 2,056 sq ft on two floors and has five first-floor bedrooms (one with an en-suite and dressing room). On the ground floor are three reception rooms - a living room, dining room and family room - along with the kitchen. The dining room has sliding doors to the patio and the very pleasant lawned garden.
54 St Helen’s Road, Co Dublin
€995k Lisney Leeson Street, (01) 662 4511
Number 54 St Helen's Road in Booterstown, was built in the first half of the 20th century by G&T Crampton, the firm that also gave us the National Concert Hall, the US Embassy and the IFSC. It has already been extended to 1,722 sq ft in size but there's a very pretty 85ft back garden to work with should you want to extend it further, and there's an adjoining garage as well. Elsewhere on the ground floor there's a living room and dining room knocked into one and opening into a conservatory, as well as a kitchen, utility and pantry. The first floor has four bedrooms.
Cascais, Shrewsbury, Ballsbridge, D4
€950k Sherry FitzGerald Ballsbridge, (01) 269 8888
Shrewsbury Park in Dublin 4 is an elite enough address as it is, but the Shrewsbury estate is a gated development off Shrewsbury Park, taking exclusiveness a step further. Cascais is a four-bedroom bungalow with a partial dormer level, giving it a floor area of 1,270 sq ft. Two of the bedrooms are upstairs (with one en-suite) and the other two are on the ground floor, again with one en-suite. The ground floor also has a bay-windowed living room and dining room (linked by an archway) and an eat-in kitchen. The back garden faces south-west and has a patio and flowerbeds.
