Greenwood, Baskin Lane, Co Dublin
€750k Noel Kelly Auctioneers (01) 846 2752
Deep in Charlie Haughey's old neighbourhood in Kinsealy, Greenwood was built in 1988, when the late taoiseach was leading his last government. It's on a leafy lane, and has a garden dotted with mature trees along with evergreen hedging, so there's a lot of privacy. Inside, it's 3,000 sq ft with five bedrooms (two with en-suite showers). By way of reception rooms there's a living room with an open fire, a TV room (also with an open fire) and a conservatory off the kitchen. The garden has a deck, a barbecue area and a steel shed formerly used as a gym.
Derrylea House, Swords Rd, Santry, D9
€625k DNG Phibsboro (01) 830 0989
Santry Demesne is a 72-acre park with a walled community garden, a playground and trails for runners and dog-walkers. Derrylea House is across the road from the park, and from Morton Stadium, if your interests run to more athletic pursuits. It's been extended to 1,894 sq ft, but there's still a 70ft lawned garden out the back if you need more space. Inside are four bedrooms on the first floor, while the ground floor has the extended kitchen, an open-plan lounge and sitting room, a living room and two other smaller reception rooms. There's parking on the front driveway, and the airport is five minutes up the road.
Balcultry, Lispopple, Swords, Co Dublin
€550k Sherry FitzGerald Blanc (01) 890 0944
You get two acres of land with this detached bungalow at Balcultry Road, which includes stables, a sand arena and a paddock, and it's about 10 minutes' drive from the airport. The house itself is 2,045 sq ft but with a site that size there's obvious potential to extend. It has four bedrooms, the main one with an en-suite shower, and four living rooms. The main reception room is a wood-floored sitting room with a marble fireplace. There's also a sun room and a dining room with a wood-burning stove, which is reached from double doors in the kitchen. The last reception room is a study, with recessed shelving.
67 Magenta Hall, Santry, D9
€495k DNG Phibsboro (01) 830 0989
Magenta Hall is an enclave of houses on the site of an old, long-vanished house of the same name. Number 67 is on a corner site, so there's a side and back garden to extend into if you want to, although the gardens are pretty and nicely maintained. It has been extended already by its current owners and now stands at 1,636 sq ft. The extension provided for a new kitchen at the back, with an Aga, opening into a garage for possible conversion. The ground floor also has a living and dining room with a fireplace, and a family room with another fireplace. The three bedrooms are on the first floor, with one en-suite.
