Four on the market under €500k in Drumcondra
A selection of four desirable properties in Drumcondra which come in under the €500,000 mark.
20 Clonliffe Road, D3
€350k DNG Fairview (01) 833 1802
Though it has only three bedrooms, 20 Clonliffe Road was able to accommodate five adults in its early years. The 1911 census has a widow living there with her three grown-up children and a lodger. It's 1,184 sq ft in size, and as it needs radical refurbishment, it's likely a new owner will extend it into the 40ft back garden. The three bedrooms are upstairs, along with the bathroom. Downstairs there's a living room, a lounge, and an eat-in kitchen, all with original fireplaces. The back garden has vehicle access.
25 Millmount Avenue, D9
€475k Quillsen Glasnevin (01) 850 0900
Millmount Avenue runs west from Drumcondra Road towards Griffith Park. Number 25 has been extended to 1,464 sq ft, adding an open-plan kitchen and family room at the back with doors to the low-maintenance back garden. There's a lounge at the front of the house with an original fireplace. The first floor has three bedrooms, and the master has a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite. Above that there's a converted attic room with en-suite. The back garden is 30ft long with a deck and a raised synthetic lawn.
59 Grace Park Terrace, D9
€435k DNG Fairview (01) 833 1802
Number 59 Grace Park Terrace is situated in what was once the grounds of a stately pile called Sally Park. It began as a modest two-bedroom end-of-terrace but has since been overhauled. It's been extended to 1,561 sq ft, and now has two ground-floor reception rooms together with an open-plan kitchen, dining room and living room. The two original bedrooms are on the first floor, along with a study, and there's a converted attic which consists of an en-suite third bedroom. A garage has also been converted to a studio.
149 Clonliffe Road, D3
€495k Sherry FitzGerald Drumcondra (01) 837 3737
Midway along Clonliffe Road the houses on the southern side of the street back onto the Dublin-Maynooth railway line, and on the other side of the railway line is Croke Park. Number 149 has been extended a long way into the back garden and is now much bigger than it looks, at 1,722 sq ft. That extension added a family room and playroom off the kitchen, and supplied access to the decked back garden. The ground floor also has a dining room and living room, and there are three bedrooms and a shower room upstairs.
