Two two-beds in Dublin city centre

Two terraced houses on Dublin’s southside – including this one for €350,000 with a private garden – make the most of their limited space


Number 24 Long Lane was purchased by its current owners nine years ago, in the state we find it in today – with a large, airy kitchen extension and small, private rear garden.

The family, which now includes small children, are looking for a larger property nearby, but even with the clutter of toys and detritus gathered by almost a decade in one spot, its appeal is obvious.

Out front, red-brick and dense hedging make the house look cosy, something that is carried on inside – although at 79sq m (850sq ft), it is a good size. The asking price is €350,000 through DNG.

A narrow entrance hall opens on to the master bedroom, with large windows overlooking the front. The second bedroom, in the centre of the house, could be used as an office space. Its one window is located in the ceiling, emitting a sense of calm.

A spacious livingroom at the heart of the house has an open fire and wooden floors.

To the rear, the open-plan kitchencum-diningroom, an extension, is bright and airy. Kitchen cabinets are country in style and painted in a chalky mint; patio doors open on to a rear garden which, although north-facing, reaps the benefit of the house’s single storey and is quite bright.
