Two-beds are better than one

Two two-beds on the market – one either side of the Liffey – have period charm and make clever use of their limited space


On St Malachy’s Road, off Botanic Avenue in Glasnevin, you’re as likely to find pensioners living in its terraced houses as you are young couples.

Number 15, on sale through Sherry FitzGerald with an asking price of €295,000, was bought a decade ago by a family now looking to upgrade.

They plan to stay in the area, because they say it has the advantage of being close to Dublin city centre and a stone’s throw from both the airport and the M50, not to mention the nearby Botanic Gardens.

The house has two large double bedrooms, both upstairs and with original cast-iron fireplaces. The rest of the living space is downstairs: a hall with original wood floors; a front livingroom with cast-iron fireplace and, to the rear; a diningroom with an archway to the kitchen; and the bathroom. There is also a floored attic.

Although space is at a premium in this 764sq ft (71sq m) space, great advantage has been taken of every storage space, including a rear shed, plumbed for washing machine and dryer.
