Auburn Avenue. The two-storey house is less than half an hour’s walk from St Stephen’s Green.

When they were built in 1901, the houses on the southern side of Auburn Avenue in Donnybrook, Dublin 4, overlooked an area of marshy ground known as the Forty Acres, part of which was to become Herbert Park after the Irish International Exhibition in Ballsbridge in 1907.

Nowadays they overlook a row of houses that were added much later in the 20th century. But the residents of Auburn Avenue still have easy access to Herbert Park. A couple of hundred metres away, at the end of Home Villas, there's an entrance to the park, where the locals can bowl, feed the ducks, play tennis and enjoy a 32-acre ramble.

Number 11 Auburn Avenue is a four-bedroom, two-storey house of 1,702 sq ft, with three reception rooms. The main one is a drawing room to the front, with a cast-iron fireplace, a bay window and original floorboards.

Double doors lead from the drawing room to the dining room, with its original fireplace and sash window. At the back of the house, accessed from the kitchen, is a recently-added conservatory with a door to the back garden.

The kitchen is fitted with cream solid-wood units with granite worktops, and there's a utility room off it.

On the hall floor return is a bathroom and a bedroom, also with a cast-iron fireplace. There are three more bedrooms on the first floor proper, and all three with fireplaces.

There's a small gated and railed front garden with roses and shrubs, and at the back is a courtyard garden with raised flowerbeds and pedestrian access to a laneway behind the house.

It's less than half an hour's walk from St Stephen's Green, should you get tired of your own wildlife at Herbert Park.
