Four semi-detached homes on the market in Dublin 9
A choice of four semi-detached properties on the market in Dublin 9
181 Griffith Ave, Drumcondra
€695k Lisney Drumcondra (01) 884 0700
There's a 121ft garden out the back of 181 Griffith Avenue, and as there's only a lawn and a shrub border in it, it won't be too much of a wrench to sacrifice some of it to build a back extension. As it stands, Number 181 is 1,593 sq ft with two interconnected reception rooms on the ground floor, together with a breakfast room and kitchen. There's also an integral garage that's used as a utility room. The first floor has four bedrooms, a shower room and separate toilet, and what's described as a veranda overlooking the front garden.
52 Larkhill Road, Whitehall
€349k DNG Phibsboro (01) 830 0989
Number 52 Larkhill Road is across the road from the Holy Child National Schools. And when you want to give them an after-school airing, Ellenfield Park is about five minutes' walk away and has tennis courts, sports pitches and a playground. Number 52 is a four-bedroom red-brick house at the end of a terrace and it has been extended to the side, adding a kitchen and breakfast room and a playroom. The ground floor also has a sitting room and a living room with a door to the garden, partly paved and partly in gravel.
17 Calderwood Ave, Drumcondra
€625k Sherry FitzGerald Drumcondra (01) 837 3737
You can get straight into urban growing at 17 Calderwood Avenue, as it has a 60ft back garden facing west, stocked with apple and pear trees and herbs. Every autumn, the pressure to make apple pies will be unrelenting. You reach the garden from either the family room or the kitchen at the back, both have sliding doors out to a deck. There's also a living room with a fireplace on the ground floor, together with an adjoining garage. The four bedrooms are upstairs. Two are doubles (one en-suite) and two are singles.
59 The Rise, Glasnevin
€645k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton (01) 804 0500
It's a pleasant walk of about 10 minutes from 59 The Rise to DCU. It's even closer to Anderson's Continental Café, three minutes down the street, where there's often live music to be heard. Number 59 is 1,335 sq ft, having gained a single-storey extension out the back. That provides a skylit kitchen with a vaulted ceiling and a door to the garden. The ground floor also has two reception rooms and there's an adjoining garage. The first floor has the three double bedrooms and the main bathroom with a cast-iron bath.
