A selection of four properties available to busy in the northside area of Phibsboro.
DNG PHIBSBORO, (01) 830 0989
Number One has been extended and has two garages, as well as off-street parking. It is 1,130 sq ft in size, with three bedrooms, all on the first floor. The ground floor has two reception rooms - a living room and dining room, both with fireplaces - and the dining room has French doors to the garden. The skylit kitchen is in an extension at the back. There's also a guest toilet downstairs, with the main bathroom on the floor above, and a covered attic.
Sherry Fitzgerald, Drumcondra, (01) 837 3737
There is no front off-street parking to Number 57, but there is a garage at the back, with access to a gated laneway. The house has been extended to 1,292 sq ft, leaving not much room for a garden. The extension makes room for a kitchen and breakfast room, utility room and shower. There is also a dining room and a living room. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a shower room with toilet, and a spiral staircase leading to an attic conversion above.
Gunne Glasnevin, (01) 850 0900
When finished, the cross-city Luas line will stop near Number 118. For motorists, the house has vehicle access to the side. It is 904 sq ft and needs refurbishment, so it may be possible to extend into the north-facing back garden. There is a lounge, dining room and kitchen on the ground floor, and three bedrooms and a shower room upstairs. Number 118 Connaught Street will be auctioned next Wednesday, 24 June, at 3pm at Gunne's Ballsbridge auction room.
Kelly Bradshaw Dalton, (01) 804 0500
Number 13 is in three flats, with a pre-'63 declaration, but it could make a nice family home as it is on a cul-de-sac and will be close to the cross-city Luas. It is 1,561 sq ft, including an extension at the back that the agents say would make a good kitchen. Also on the ground floor are two reception rooms, both with fireplaces. The first floor has three bedrooms, two with fireplaces, and above that there's an unconverted attic. But the whole place needs refurbishment.
