A selection of four properties in Dublin which could be yours for less than €300,000.
51 Bannow Road, Cabra, D7
€275k DNG Phibsboro (01) 800 0989
There's rather a quaint view from the front of 51 Bannow Road. From there you can see clearly across the street to the Batchelors canning factory, so some of your nearest neighbours will include Barney and Beany. Number 51 is a two-bedroom terraced house that now measures 840 sq ft, having been extended out the back on the ground floor. This level now has two reception rooms as well as a kitchen with a door to the paved and gravelled back garden. The two bedrooms (one en-suite) are upstairs. As well as being close to the source of baked beans, it's also handy for Broombridge station, about 10 minutes' walk away.
3 Chaworth Terrace, Hanbury Lane, D8
€225k Felicity Fox (01) 663 4431
The former home of architect Jeremy Williams, who died on Christmas Eve in 2015, 3 Chaworth Terrace needs considerable refurbishment now. It's part of a Victorian red-brick terrace at Hanbury Lane, off Meath Street, and it's at the end of the terrace, with a laneway adjacent leading to the Thomas Court Centre. It's 730 sq ft with two first-floor bedrooms, one with an en-suite bath and shower and a cast-iron fireplace. There's also an office upstairs, also with a fireplace, and a skylit attic room overhead. The ground floor has a living room and a dining room, both with fireplaces, along with a kitchenette. Out the back is a smallish garden with a deck.
43 St James’s Avenue, Ballybough, D3
€285k DNG Fairview (01) 833 1802
Number 43 St James's Avenue may be in Ballybough but it's within a hens' race of the more exotically-named townland of Lovescharity, which encompassed the area where Croke Park now stands. The stadium is across the street from the house, which is a two-bed terrace with a surprisingly big garden out the back. That means there may be scope to extend it from its current 635 sq ft. The upstairs floor area includes a bathroom and two bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower and a cast-iron fireplace. The ground floor has an open-plan living, dining room and kitchen, where there's another cast-iron fireplace and doors to the garden.
34 Saul Road, Crumlin, D12
€270k Felicity Fox (01) 663 4431
Keen cyclists may be interested in 34 Saul Road, as it's only a two-minute cycle from Eamonn Ceannt Park, home of what is still Ireland's only velodrome. The park also has playing fields, tennis courts, an athletic track and a playground. Number 34 is a two-bedroom terraced house and although it's quite small, at 731 sq ft, it's in very good condition and has an orderly, low-maintenance back garden. The two bedrooms are upstairs, along with the bathroom, while downstairs there's a lounge and a kitchen with French doors to the decked and gravelled garden. There's also a utility room and guest toilet on the ground floor.
