66 Brighton Road, Dublin 6
Five-bedroom semi-detached period house
An executor's sale, this well-proportioned redbrick Victorian property is in good condition, though it will require some modernisation as it has no central heating or kitchen to speak of and only one bathroom.
However, it still has many original features -- a lovely curved wooden stairway, fireplaces, high ceilings, timber floors, windows and internal doors -- so it could be transformed into an elegant home. The 224sqm accommodation consists of an entrance hall; inner hall with tiled floor; understairs storage; sitting room with a large bay window; folding double doors into the dining room with original fireplace; breakfast room with tiled fireplace; scullery; utility room; five bedrooms; bathroom; and WC.
The bedrooms, all a good size, are split over three different levels. One has a large bay window and four retain their original fireplaces. Outside is a railed front garden with side access, an L-shaped south-west facing back garden with rear entrance, and an outside WC. Rathgar and Terenure are just a short walk away.
Pros: Brighton Avenue is a much sought-after location in Dublin 6.
Cons: Back garden is quite small.
