4 Botanic Villas, Glasnevin
€595k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton, (01) 804 0500
Number 4 Botanic Villas is at the end of a terrace of four late 19th-century houses off Botanic Road, just east of Glasnevin Cemetery and south of the Botanic Gardens. It's 1,345 sq ft and has a converted attic, reached by a spiral staircase, which is currently used as a third bedroom. The other two bedrooms are on the first floor along with a box room or single room, and there's a bathroom on the return. On the ground floor are two reception rooms, both with fireplaces, and a kitchen with French doors to the lawned back garden. There's also a utility and guest toilet off the kitchen.
144 Elm Mount Avenue, Beaumont
395k Sherry FitzGerald Killester, (01) 833 6555
The houses at Elm Mount Avenue all have exceptionally long back gardens - especially those, such as Number 144, that haven't been extended. The back garden of the house is 146ft long and there's also a double garage. Inside, Number 144 has three bedrooms on the first floor (one a single) along with a bathroom. Downstairs there's a living room and a dining room, both with marble fireplaces and linked by sliding doors. The rear of the two rooms has a door to that large back garden, as does the kitchen. The attic has been converted as well.
84 Hollybank Road, Drumcondra
€450k Lisney Howth Road, (01) 853 6016
In April 1916, Arthur Boles of 84 Hollybank Road dropped his solid brass fender in to the establishment of John Kane at Middle Abbey Street to be relacquered. Then the Rising happened, and the fender was destroyed by fire. Boles put in a claim for £3 17shillings and sixpence to the Property Losses committee, but was awarded only £1 12s 6d in compensation. Number 84 is in need of full renovation but has period features including fireplaces - all conspicuously lacking fenders. It's 1,076 sq ft with two reception rooms, a kitchen and a bathroom on the ground floor, and three bedrooms upstairs. The back garden is 46ft long with pedestrian access.
2 O’Brien’s Place, Drumcondra
€295k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton, (01) 804 0500
O'Brien's Place is a tiny little cul-de-sac off Joyce Road, with an entrance so narrow that you would fear your car wouldn't fit through it. It will though, and there's room to park it in the driveway of Number 2, which sits at an angle to the road. Number 2 needs refurbishment and stands at 750 sq ft, with three first-floor bedrooms. The ground-floor layout includes a living room with its original fireplace and a kitchen with a door to the rear courtyard. The main bathroom is also downstairs. It's about 10 minutes' walk from St Patrick's College and 20 minutes from Drumcondra station.
