On view this weekend


Looking for a house with a south-facing back garden on Dublin's southside? Try these

40 Hampton Park, St Helen’s Wood, Booterstown

€550,000, Owen Reilly

This four-bedroom semi-detached house is in a mature development that is popular with families because of its proximity to a range of schools, bus links and UCD. It has an entrance hallway, lounge, dining room, modest kitchen-breakfast room, four bedrooms, including a master with en suite, and a bathroom. The attic is floored so it could be converted, though it currently provides decent storage. The south-facing rear garden has a well-tended lawn with planted borders and small patio dining area.

On view: Sat noon–1pm

15 Belgrave Road, Rathmines

€1,300,000, Sherry FitzGerald

This period two-storey-over-garden Victorian property is in use as offices, but it offers good potential to return to residential use. Set well back from the road, it has an interesting view over the Church of the Holy Trinity on Belgrave Road. The house, which dates from the 1870s, is 291sq m (3,130sq ft) and has a south-facing rear garden. A self-contained apartment at garden level currently provides rental income. With appropriate planning, there is further scope to extend to the rear and side of the property. Fine original period features remain intact within the property. The house is well located close to all the amenities of Rathmines and Ranelagh, while Beechwood Luas is a five-minute walk away.

On view: Sat noon–1pm

8 Foster’s Avenue, Mount Merrion

€850,000, Beirne Wise

Located in the popular southside suburb of Mount Merrion, this detached three-bedroom house is on almost a fifth of an acre of manicured grounds. There is good scope to extend on both sides and to the rear, subject to obtaining the required planning permission. The floor area is 131sq m (1,410sq ft) and there is a living room, dining room, kitchen, conservatory, three bedrooms, bathroom and downstairs shower room. It is in need of modernisation, but a major bonus is the setting among mature trees, shrubbery and extensive lawns, including a south-facing rear garden.

There is an adjoining garage and outhouse to the side of the house offering potential for further development. Foster’s Avenue is well positioned close to the N11 and quality bus corridors, and the view from number 8 is over the mature UCD grounds to the front.

On view: Sat noon–1pm

4 Charleston Avenue, Ranelagh, Dublin 6

€695,000, DNG

This three-bedroom redbrick period home on Charleston Avenue in Ranelagh is in good decorative order throughout. It is probably best suited to a couple or small family as it has 1,300sq ft (120sq m) of space. Accommodation includes entrance hallway, reception room, open-plan living-diningroom and newly fitted kitchen and bathroom all at ground floor level. On the first floor, there are three bedrooms and a main bathroom. The garden at the rear – mainly paved – has a southerly aspect and has been carefully planted, making it an exceptionally private and relaxing space. Ranelagh’s bustling amenities and Luas line are a short walk away. It is a short stroll to Ranelagh’s shops and restaurants.

On view: Sat 12.15pm–1.15pm
