On the market: Take the Strain of Drumcondra house
The more you consider how building practices have prevailed in Ireland in recent decades, the more Alexander Strain becomes a hero.
Strain was responsible for constructing swathes of carefully-crafted homes in Dublin in the early 20th Century, including 22 St Brigid's Road Upper in Drumcondra.
Number 22 has a large interconnecting sitting room and dining room with a bay window and a kitchen/ breakfast room.
On the first floor return is a bedroom and bathroom with separate toilet, and on the first floor proper are another two bedrooms, both doubles. Total floor space is 1,518 square feet.
Outside there's a small railed garden to the front and a good-sized back garden.
Number 22 is for sale through Gunne estate agents (01 632 3000) in Fairview.
