Independent Property takes three properties in Sandymount and rates them in price and value for money
Green with envy
Hepenstal Terrace is a row of elegant Victorian redbrick houses along Newgrove Avenue in Sandymount, less than 100 metres from Sandymount Green.
Number 3 Hepenstal Terrace is now in need of some care and attention, but has 1,464 sq ft of genteel bones to work with, and some space to extend.
There is a dining room and a sitting room with a bay window at hall door level; from there, steps go down to the kitchen and breakfast room. The bathroom and one bedroom, which has a cast iron fireplace, are on the first-floor return, while there are two more bedrooms on the first floor proper, including the master bedroom.
At the front there's a small railed garden, so parking is on the street with a permit. The back garden is south facing and 70 feet long.
Number 3 will be auctioned on Wednesday, 1 October, by Lisney (01 638 2700), and the AMV is €500,000.
Tritonville Court is a cul-de-sac development of modern semi-detached houses off Tritonville Road in Sandymount. They're all redbrick, with pillars around the doors and bay windows.
Number 20 has a paved-over front garden, for parking, and 1,421 square feet of floor space inside. Off the ground floor hallway is a living room with a fireplace, connected by double doors to a dining room at the back of the house. The kitchen is also at the back, though separate from the dining room.
There's also a guest toilet on the ground floor, while upstairs there are four bedrooms, one of which is en suite, and the main bathroom. There's a paved, and rather overgrown, south-facing back garden.
It's about ten minutes' walk from Tritonville Court to the Dart station at Lansdowne Road, and the same to Sandymount village green.
The agent is Sherry FitzGerald Ballsbridge (01 237 6300) and the asking price is €750,000.
The houses at Seafort Gardens in Sandymount, built on the site of the old Shelbourne Park football ground, were once occupied by disabled ex-servicemen, having been provided for their use by the Irish Sailors' and Soldiers' Land Trust.
Number 39 Seafort Gardens is a pretty, semi-detached cottage of only 926 square feet, but there's room to extend into the garden should the need arise.
On the ground floor there's a living room with a raised fireplace, a dining room and an extended kitchen, which has French doors to the back garden.
There's a guest toilet on this level, and a full bathroom on the first floor half-landing. Upstairs are two bedrooms off the landing.
There's room for parking on the front driveway, while the back garden is 45 feet long and features a lawn, decking and a patio, as well as an outbuilding.
It's for sale for €595,000 with Felicity Fox Estate Agents (01 633 4431).
