Take four: Terraces

What: Five-bedroom terraced Victorian residence Where: 25 Adelaide Street, Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin

25 Adelaide St
25 Adelaide St
47 Charleville Avenue
Dodder Terrace
Yewlands Cork

The Victorican terrace at number 25 provides a very substantial 3,400 sq ft of accomodation.

Many original features have been retained, but as the property is currently laid out in office accommodation, there is some cash to be spent reverting to a family home.

This should be reasnably straight-forward given a planning application for this purpose has already been submitted.

It helps that two similar properties on the street were both granted permission to change to residential use; the area is zoned Objective A, with priority for residential.

WHAT: TWO-BEDROOM EXTENDED TERRACE

WHERE: 8 DODDER TERRACE, DUBLIN 4

This two-bed is picturesque and at just 869 sq ft it won't house a big family but if location is everything . . .

Behind the soft red brick façade are two decent living areas – the kitchen, extended to 12'7" x 13'10") and the contemporary living room with tiled floor, which has a couple of nice feature windows. Upstairs are two double bedrooms, back to back and a bathroom.

The rear garden has been decked and there is ivy overhang. There is on-street parking only, but the DART at Landsdowne is a few minutes' walk.

What: Three-bedroom terraced period house

Where: 47 Charleville Avenue, North Strand, Dublin 3

A TWO/THREE bedroom over basement on Dublin's North Strand, Number 47 is new to market.

The owners have maintained the period feel with the decorative plaster cornicing and hallway arch. These are complemented by the original varnished floorboards throughout.

The master bed is located to the rear, over-looking the garden. There are two interconnecting rooms at the basement level, one is used as a third bedroom, but could easily be an office, study or sitting room. The second is a living room and there is a separate kitchen and utility.

There is the possibility for further development of the attic. The roof was slated and re-felted 10 years ago.

There is a private walled garden which has been nicely gravelled with raised beds and a small courtyard.

The North Strand road is a ten minute walk from the IFSC so may suit a financial type.
