The houses at Seafort Gardens in Sandymount, built on the site of the old Shelbourne Park football ground, were once occupied by disabled ex-servicemen, having been provided for their use by the Irish Sailors' and Soldiers' Land Trust.
Number 39 Seafort Gardens is a pretty, semi-detached cottage of only 926 square feet, but there's room to extend into the garden should the need arise.
On the ground floor there's a living room with a raised fireplace, a dining room and an extended kitchen, which has French doors to the back garden.
There's a guest toilet on this level, and a full bathroom on the first floor half-landing. Upstairs are two bedrooms off the landing.
There's room for parking on the front driveway, while the back garden is 45 feet long and features a lawn, decking and a patio, as well as an outbuilding.
It's for sale for €595,000 with Felicity Fox Estate Agents (01 633 4431).
