Four on the market: red-bricks in Dublin 3
A choice of four distinctive red-brick properties offering proximity to the city centre in Dublin 3.
14 Northbrook Terrace, North Strand
€475k Sherry FitzGerald City Centre, (01) 643 1400
There's an unusual home office in 14 Northbrook Terrace, although it will be hard to get any work done there. It's in the attic, and has an exposed brick wall and skylights pointing to the south-west. From there you'll have a view of the sunset city skyline to distract you. The house has been extended to 1,087 sq ft, with an architect-designed rear annexe housing the kitchen and, above it, a bathroom. The kitchen opens onto a back garden with decking and gravel, as does the adjacent dining room. There's also a front sitting room with a cast-iron fireplace, and three bedrooms upstairs
26 Moy Elta Road, East Wall
€390k Owen Reilly, (01) 677 7100
The last time 26 Moy Elta Road was sold was in February 2016, according to the Property Price Register, when it fetched €142,500. Since then it's had a top-to-bottom refurbishment and gained some chic and modern features including grey gloss cabinets and integrated appliances in the kitchen. The kitchen is open-plan to the front living room, and has a glass door leading out to a small rear patio. The first floor has two bedrooms, and the main one has acquired a walk-in wardrobe during renovation. Above that is an attic which is also used as a bedroom. The floor area comes to 786 sq ft.
137 Seafield Road East, Clontarf
€975k DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
When 137 Seafield Road East was built, in the first half of the 20th century, it was across the road from the Hibernian Marine School, which took responsibility for the education of boys whose fathers had died or become disabled at sea. The school is gone but a maritime atmosphere still prevails, as Number 137 is just five minutes' walk from the coast. It's a semi-detached house of 1,981 sq ft, having already been extended. There remains a massive, 125ft lawned back garden should a new owner want to do more. The two ground-floor reception rooms have been knocked into one, and there's an office and an eat-in kitchen with sliding patio doors. The first floor has four bedrooms (one en suite).
10 Susanville Road, Drumcondra
€450k Sherry FitzGerald Drumcondra, (01) 837 3737
Susanville Road is a tree-lined street of Edwardian red-brick terraced houses that opens from both Clonliffe Road and Distillery Road. Number 10 is at the Distillery Road end, about three minutes' walk from Croke Park. It has one of those cute railed town gardens next to a tiled path out the front, and out the back is a very pretty patio with an old stone wall and flowerbeds. It's 732 sq ft with a front door opening directly into the living room, where there's a cast-iron fireplace and quarter-turn stairs to the first floor. Beyond this is the extended kitchen and dining room with rooflights and doors to the garden. The two bedrooms are upstairs.
