Three on the market: Belle of the ball in Rathgar
Number 5 Belleville Avenue in Rathgar, a two-storey house dating from 1860, has been craftily extended with a large kitchen/breakfast room and family room stretching diagonally into the garden.
It's a Victorian house with period features, but the extension supplies a bright, modern living space, and takes the property's dimensions up to 2,160 square feet.
At hall door level are the drawing room, with a marble fireplace and two large sash windows, the master bedroom, study and bathroom.
Stairs lead down to the lower hall, which opens into the new kitchen/breakfast room (24'6" by about 12'6"), which has a pitched wooden ceiling and four sets of patio doors leading to gardens on each side. Also on this level are the family room, three bedrooms, a shower room and utility.
Located in a cul-de-sac off Rathgar Road, number 5 has a garage to the side and off-street parking.
It's on the market for €1.375m through Gunne in Ranelagh (01 499 5050).
