Four on the market: North Dublin bungalows
These four properties offer the opportunity to enjoy bungalow living in North Dublin.
6 Church Road, Swords
€375k DNG Phibsboro, (01) 830 0989
A fundraising drive continues in a bid to restore St Columba's Church in Swords, a Gothic-style Georgian structure built on the site of an ancient monastery where Brian Boru is said to have been waked after the Battle of Clontarf. No6 Church Road is among a row of bungalows facing east, about two minutes' walk from the church, in the townland of Swords Glebe. It measures 861 sq ft, all in good nick, with two bedrooms, one upstairs at dormer level and the other on the ground floor at the back. Each bedroom has an adjacent bathroom. Also downstairs are the split-level living room and kitchen, and the west-facing back garden is paved for parking.
26 Second Avenue, Seville Place, D1
€245k Lisney Howth Road, (01) 853 6016
Second Avenue is one of four so-numbered cul-de-sacs running north off Seville Place, and No26 is less than five minutes' walk from Docklands train station. It's a tiny cottage of 494 sq ft with either one or two bedrooms, depending on whether or not you want a study. The first bedroom is at the front, off the main living room where there's a gas-fitted fireplace. The study is behind it, lit by a skylight. Past a little lobby with a shower room is the kitchen, also with a skylight and high-gloss cabinets. A door there leads out to a small back yard.
114 Kincora Court, Clontarf, D3
€495k Sherry FitzGerald Killester, (01) 833 6555
Technically, Kincora Court is a cul-de-sac. At the end of it, though, is a pedestrian pathway leading to Kincora Road, by which means you can be on the bridge to the Bull Island in three minutes flat. If you're too lazy even for that, the house is situated opposite a nice bit of parkland with mature trees and tyre swings. No 114 is a 829 sq ft bungalow with a dormer level, where there's a skylit bedroom and bathroom. Downstairs there's an open-plan living room, dining room and kitchen with a fireplace, and a second reception room or bedroom at the back. French doors open to the decked back garden where there's a garden room.
10 Botanic Road, Glasnevin, D9
€349k DNG Phibsboro, (01) 830 0989
It's less than ten minutes' walk from No10 Botanic Road to both the Glasnevin Cemetery Museum and the National Botanic Gardens, so you can go for a walk among the living or the dead, as you choose. Despite having been extended, No10 measures only 560 sq ft, all on one floor. Nevertheless there are two bedrooms, one either side of the entrance hall at the front and both with built-in wardrobes. At the back is a kitchen and dining room, reasonably sized at 19ft by 11ft, skylit and with a pretty fireplace. Off this is an extension with a shower room. There's a railed garden out the front and a 15ft by 20ft courtyard out the back.
