9 The Rise, Glasnevin
€720k Young's Estate Agents, (01) 497 5581
In 1911, the occupant of No6 Church Avenue was Professor John Carolan of St Patrick's College. He later moved around the corner to Upper Drumcondra Road and was dead within a decade. In 1920 two IRA men were hiding in the house when British soldiers raided and shot Carolan, who died a few days later; the fugitives escaped. No6 is at the western end of Church Avenue, near the Cat and Cage pub. It's 904 sq ft with the three bedrooms on the first floor, two with original fireplaces. Downstairs there's a living room, dining room and galley kitchen, and the dining room has doors to a paved garden.
6 Church Avenue, Drumcondra
€395k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton, (01) 804 0500
The Rise estate was built in the 1930s, just north of Griffith Avenue, by Alexander Strain's son-in-law George Linzell. It has authentic pre-war features including double bay windows and those 1930s tiled fireplaces that have not quite come back into fashion yet. The ground floor has a living room to the front and a dining room behind it, with French doors to a big and inviting back garden with a 484 sq ft garage. The kitchen is through an archway in the dining room and the three bedrooms are on the first floor. The interior space amounts to 1,109 sq ft in total.
42 Lindsay Road, Glasnevin
€895k DNG Phibsboro, (01) 830 0989
The celebrated builder Alexander Strain was responsible for giving us many of the most elegant suburbs of Dublin's north side in the early 20th century, including Lindsay Road. No42 still has the graceful features Strain included, such as high, corniced ceilings, stained glass and fireplaces. The house has been modified, not least by the conversion of the attic which is used as a fourth bedroom. The three main bedrooms are on the first floor while the ground floor has two reception rooms and an eat-in kitchen all done out in brick. The floor area is 1,475 sq ft and there's a partly paved back garden with mature trees.
141 Collins Avenue, Whitehall
€525k DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
The back garden of No141 Collins Avenue is an estimated 100ft long. It has been nicely cared for, with a smooth lawn and an abundance of flowering shrubs. The problem is you can't easily get at it, so it's likely a new owner will at the very least throw some French doors into the dining room at the back of the house. Another option is to extend out, increasing the floor area from its current 1,238 sq ft. As well as the dining room, the ground floor also has a front living room, an oblong kitchen and an adjoining garage that hasn't been converted. The three bedrooms are upstairs.
