68 Rathdown Road, Phibsboro, D7
€595k DNG Phibsboro, (01) 830 0989
This house will be close to the Grangegorman stop of the new Luas line, and is about three minutes' walk from the entrance to DIT Grangegorman. An elegant, bay-windowed redbrick with authentic features including high, corniced ceilings, it has been extended to 1,302 sq ft, gaining a modern kitchen and conservatory, with doors to the pleasant back garden.

11 Offaly Road, Cabra, D7
€365k Sherry FitzGerald Drumcondra, (01) 837 3737
The Church of Christ the King in Cabra was built in 1933, but its signature massive statue of Christ did not arrive for another 20 years. Sculpted in Trieste and reportedly buried underground during WWII, it was later dispatched to Cabra in sections. The church is at Offaly Road, at the centre of a well-established community, and Number 11 is just 100 metres away. An 840 sq ft terraced house in good decorative order, it has three first-floor bedrooms. On the ground floor is a living room and an extended kitchen with patio doors.
190 Quarry Road, Cabra, D7
€295k REA Fitzgerald Chambers, (01) 671 2277
Quarry Road runs due north-south between Fassaugh Road and Cabra Road, but running west off it is a series of cul-de-sacs, all called Quarry Road too. Number 190 is on the northernmost of these, a south-facing, mid-terrace, around the corner from Gaelscoil Bharra. On the ground floor is a living room, and a kitchen with a door to the garden, along with the main bathroom. Upstairs are two bedrooms, one with access to a converted attic with a skylight. The new Cabra Luas stop will be about seven minutes' walk away.
60 Cabra Park, Cabra, D7
€550k O’Connor Estate Agents, (01) 860 3997
Number 60 last sold in 2011, for €162k, according to the Property Price Register. It needed total refurbishment at the time due to fire damage. The new owners were not put off, and they've completely restored the house as a graceful Edwardian redbrick. On the ground floor there are two formal reception rooms on the left, and then a big kitchen and dining room at the back. Upstairs are four bedrooms, one with a balcony over the back garden. When the new Luas line opens, the nearest stop will be at Phibsboro.
