A choice of four properties in Dublin 6W which could be yours for under €500k.
10 Cormac Terrace, Terenure
€350k Sherry FitzGerald Terenure, (01) 490 7433
Cormac Terrace is actually a pair of tiny cul-de-sacs opening west off Rathfarnham Road and about three minutes' walk from Terenure village. No10 last sold five years ago, in May 2014, for €186,000, according to the Property Price Register. It's a comparatively small 506 sq ft but it still manages to provide two good bedrooms, both at the back and both lit by skylights. The front door opens directly into the open-plan kitchen/living/dining room which measures some 17ft by 13ft. This room occupies the whole front of the cottage and has two south-facing windows.
63 Larkfield Grove, Harold’s Cross
€450k Savills Central Dublin, (01) 663 4300
Although Larkfield Grove is sometimes described as being in Kimmage, it's actually within the historical townland of Harold's Cross West and around the corner from Harold's Cross National School. No63 is a terraced house measuring 964 sq ft with three bedrooms on the first floor - two doubles and a single. There's also a shower room on this level and a newly added wet room downstairs. The ground floor also has two reception rooms - a living room and a family room - and a dual-aspect kitchen, where a door gives onto a lawned garden with a concrete storage shed.
3 Riverside Cottages, Templeogue
€450k DNG Terenure, (01) 490 9000
Riverside Cottages don't often come on the market, and you can see why the residents there might prefer to stay put. It's a crescent-shaped cul-de-sac of 20 pretty little early 20th-century cottages, all overlooking a large park with the River Dodder beyond. Many of the cottages have been extended, including No3, although it's still only 958 sq ft. That includes three bedrooms and one main living room to the front, which is dual-aspect and with a fireplace. The eat-in kitchen is at the back and is also dual-aspect, with French doors to the back patio and garden. The cottage-style front garden faces south-west.
117 Melvin Road, Terenure
€475k Felicity Fox, (01) 633 4431
Like many of its neighbours along Melvin Road, No117 has gained a rear extension. But it still has a nice roomy back garden, at 44ft feet long, which is well planted and has a cherry blossom in all its spring glory at present. The extension is two storeys, allowing for three bedrooms upstairs, one with an en suite, along with a family bathroom. The ground floor is open-plan with a front kitchen and a walnut-floored dining room and living room with a gas-fired stove and French doors to the garden. The floor area totals 1,044 sq ft and there's off-street parking out front.
