Number 73, Lansdowne Road is on the market for €1m with Sherry FitzGerald Ballsbridge (01 237 6300).
AMID the rancour that developed in Dublin 3 over the cancellation of the Garth Brooks concerts this summer, it also became clear that there are people who like nothing better than living next to a stadium.
You can't get much closer than 73 Lansdowne Road, Ballsbridge, which is right across the road from the Aviva Stadium. This also means it is handily situated about a minute's walk from the Dart station while the house also backs on to the River Dodder.
Number 73 is a pretty, semi-detached cottage with a brick façade, leaded windows and a yellow door. It's sheltered to some extent from the front behind hedging and mature trees.
It's 1,300sq ft in size but has only two bedrooms.
That's because the house is geared more towards being awake than being asleep, and the original third bedroom on the ground floor has been converted into a large shower room measuring 12x4ft by 10x10ft. The living room to the right of the hallway is also generously sized, at over 21x20ft, and has a fireplace.
It provides access to both the black and white tiled kitchen at the back of the house and the conservatory jutting into the back garden.
The two remaining bedrooms are upstairs, one of which has a small ensuite, along with the family bathroom.
There's off-street parking on the front driveway, behind wrought-iron gates.
The back garden, accessed from both the conservatory and the kitchen, faces south and has a lawn, a garden shed and a patio, where the occupants might sit outside listening to a concert or the atmosphere from soccer match across the road.
