Drumcondra Library was designed by Scottish architect Robert S Lawrie and built in February 1937. Since then it's had a major refurbishment, and you can partake in all the improved facilities from 4 Millbourne Avenue, only 50 metres down the street. Built before the library, in 1905, Number 4 is a terraced house with original features such as its lovely sitting room fireplace. It's been extended to 659 sq ft, gaining a bigger kitchen and dining room at the back of the house. This has skylights and French doors to the courtyard garden. There are two bedrooms upstairs, and a floored attic above that with a window giving onto the flat-roofed extension.

If you fancy building something unspecified, and getting all the neighbours wondering what you're doing, you may be interested in 34 Joyce Road, as it has a 534 sq ft workshop at the end of its back garden. The house itself is 776 sq ft on two floors, with three upstairs bedrooms - two doubles and a single. The ground floor has a living room with a hardwood floor, the bathroom and a fitted kitchen with a glass door to the 25ft back garden where, as well as the workshop there's a patio and built-in barbecue. Griffith Park is a five-minute walk away.

137 Grace Park Heights
 

It's been almost five years since 137 Grace Park Heights last sold; it fetched €276,000 back in June 2013. A new buyer may want to extend it and there's plenty of scope to do so without too much disruption, as it has an integral garage and an attic. As it stands, it's 1,141 sq ft with two reception rooms and an eat-in kitchen on the ground floor and four bedrooms upstairs. The kitchen opens to the garage at the front and to the garden at the back which needs taking in hand. It consists of a patio and a gravelled area surrounded by flowerbeds.

32 Hardiman Road

32 Hardiman Road
 

Number 32 Hardiman Road occupies a corner site at the junction of O'Daly Road, and it has a triangular lawned front garden and a small back yard with a shed. The current owners refurbished the place in 2011, including wiring and insulation, adding a new porch and extending the kitchen (hence the small rear garden). It now measures 898 sq ft and has three bedrooms on the first floor, all with hardwood floors and built-in wardrobes, along with a shower room. As well as the extended kitchen (now 16ft by 11ft), the ground floor also has a wood-floored living room with a timber fireplace.
