Saintly surroundings

The eighth century Irish scholar Clement was famous enough in his own time to have a biography written. The author is said to have been a monk named Notker the Stammerer, and the work was dedicated to Charles the Fat.

Clement overcame these less than august-sounding associations and became a perfectly dignified saint in due course, giving his name to St Clement's Road, a redbrick terrace in Drumcondra, Dublin 9.

Number 7 St Clement's Road has been fully refurbished and extended to 1,281 sq ft. It has three bedrooms, two reception rooms, both with oak floors and fireplaces, and a good-sized kitchen/dining room with doors to the garden.

There's a small railed garden to the front, while at the back is an area of decking and flowerbeds with a door to a gated laneway. Drumcondra station is about three minutes' walk away.

There's another storey

Wigan Road is a tidy cul-de-sac of period redbrick terraced houses off Whitworth Road in Drumcondra, Dublin 9.

Number 7 is a mid-terraced house with two storeys at the front and three storeys at the rear. There are two reception rooms on the ground floor - a living room to the front, with a fireplace, and a dining room behind it, which opens into the kitchen at the back.

There are three good-sized bedrooms on the floors above, all with cast-iron fireplaces and fitted wardrobes, and a smaller fourth bedroom. There's also one shower room upstairs, and another on the ground floor.

The back garden faces due west, for evening sun, and has a garage measuring around 18 ft square. There's also a small railed garden to the front with a lawn.
