Had you been a fictional character living at 1 Newbridge Avenue in Sandymount, Dublin 4, on the original Bloomsday in 1904, you would have watched the remains of Paddy Dignam being removed from his home at No 9, and then his funeral cortege making its way to Glasnevin Cemetery, followed by Leopold Bloom in one of the mourners' carriages.

Indeed, had you lived at Newbridge Avenue in 1904, you might well have ended up being immortalised in Ulysses yourself.

Even back then, No 1 - a respectable two-storey red-brick on the northern side of the street - appears to have been subdivided, and it is still subdivided today.

No1 contains four apartments, although Apt No 3, on the first floor, has as much space inside as many of the cottage-type homes in the neighbourhood of Dublin 4.

It measures 671 sq ft and has three bedrooms.

There are some period features here including high ceilings with cornicing and ceiling roses, although it has been modernised and has PVC windows where once there were timber sashes.

And the apartment is being sold complete with its contents, so for once it's not an overstatement to say that there's nothing for a new owner to do but move in.

The bedrooms are to be found on either side of the main reception room - a living room with a cast-iron fireplace (with an electric fire). There are two bedrooms and a shower room to the left of the living room, while to the right is the kitchen, along with the third bedroom and another shower room.

Apartment No 3 comes with gated parking for two cars out the back of the house, and has an annual management fee of €1,000.

For non-motorists, Lansdowne Road station is half a kilometre away.

It's for sale for €550,000 with DNG Central (01) 679 4088.
