Four on the market: under €400k in Dublin 8
A choice of four properties on the market for under €400,000 close to Dublin city centre.
29 Gray Street, The Liberties
€380k Sherry FitzGerald Rathmines, (01) 496 6066
Gray Street runs roughly east to west between Meath Street and Pimlico, and is notable for its copper-domed statue of Christ which was erected in 1929, its plaque proclaims "in commemoration of the centenary of the Emancipation". Number 29 is at the end of a red-brick terrace and has been recently refurbished. It has a completely enclosed and decked back garden measuring roughly 9ft by 14ft, which you can reach from sliding doors in the skylit kitchen. The ground floor also has a living and dining room with a steel fireplace and an oak floor, and there are two bedrooms upstairs along with a bathroom. The floor area comes to 775 sq ft in total.
26 Brookfield Road, Kilmainham
€385k Felicity Fox, (01) 633 4431
Number 26 Brookfield Road is one of a pair of semi-detached single-storey cottages, and while the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage has nothing to say about Number 26 itself, it does tell us that its neighbour was built in 1780. Number 26 stands on the corner of Cameron Square, near St James's Hospital, and measures 592 sq ft. It has two bedrooms downstairs and a converted attic reached by a spiral stairs. The ground floor also has a lounge with an open fire and a kitchen with glass doors to a courtyard garden, and there's vehicle access from there.
19 Martin Street, Portobello
€390k Young’s, (01) 497 5581
Martin Street was built on the site of the old City Basin, the reservoir along the Grand Canal that was filled-in in the late 19th century and replaced with housing that would become known as Little Jerusalem. Number 19 requires complete refurbishment but its location, less than 100 metres from the canal, will be a temptation to those with the time and money to do it. It's 789 sq ft in size with two bedrooms upstairs. On the ground floor there's a living room, a family room, kitchen and shower room, with a shed in the concrete yard out the back.
15 Jamestown Road, Inchicore
€350k Sherry FitzGerald Sundrive, (01) 492 2444
It's a three-minute walk to the Blackhorse Luas stop from 15 Jamestown Road, one of a terrace of nice-looking bay-windowed houses facing south, off Tyrconnell Road. Number 15 requires modernising inside, and if you're thinking of adding an extension while you're at it, there's room in the rather unruly back garden. As it stands it's 1,098 sq ft with two reception rooms on the ground floor, both with fireplaces and linked by double doors, and a kitchen at the back with a door to the garden. The first floor has three bedrooms and there's a bathroom and separate toilet at return level.
