Four generations of the same family have lived at Holly Lodge since 1928, taking up from the generations who lived in it prior to that, since it was built in the 1800s.

Although it could do with a little modernising now, it has good features including fireplaces and shuttered sash windows, and there’s a southeast-facing 49ft garden with a pedestrian exit to the parking at Blackrock Business Park. It’s 1,646 sq ft on two floors, with two bedrooms at entrance level and two reception rooms with folding doors between (one in use as a bedroom). The lower floor, with its own front door, has a kitchen and breakfast room with a pantry off, another bedroom and a living room.

When it was built back in the early 19th century, No38 would have had a relatively clear view out over Sandycove Harbour and Scotsman’s Bay. The view has been somewhat curtailed in the intervening centuries but you can still see the sea from the first floor. There are three bedrooms at the front there, and a bathroom at the back.

Downstairs there’s a living room to the right as you go in and a drawing room to the left. Towards the back is the dining room and beyond that the kitchen, with French doors to an orangery draped with vines and the garden. The total floor area is 1,490 sq ft.

No27 Clonkeen Road is part of a cluster of attention-grabbing semi-detached houses constructed by the renowned builder John Kenny in the 1930s. No27 has aged well but a new owner will probably want to move the galley kitchen or extend it. If so, there’s a 120ft southwest-facing back garden to work with.

Elsewhere the ground floor has three living rooms — drawing room, dining room and breakfast room — and an attached garage. The first floor has four bedrooms and there’s a converted attic used as an office. The total space is 1,690 sq ft.

Although it’s divided into pre-63 flats at present, No37 can be sold with vacant possession, according to the agents, for a buyer who wants to turn it back into a family home.

It’s 2,508 sq ft on two floors and there’s a detached building in the back garden that’s also been converted to a studio flat. The main house is in four flats — two at entrance level and two in the raised basement. Throughout are some extant period features including ornate ceilings and fireplaces, but it will take some work to restore it.

It’s at the end of a terrace about 10 minutes’ walk from Sandycove & Glasthule Dart station.
