Leeson Park Avenue, an L-shaped cul-de-sac off Appian Way in Ranelagh, is lined with period houses of varying styles and sizes. Number 14, at the end of the quiet road, is one of a pair of two-storey houses in the middle of the terrace.

Its owner extended the three-bedroom home in recent years and added a new kitchen and bathroom; buyers will have little to do other than redecorate.

Viewers to date have been downsizers and young families. And the well-located 141sq m (1,517sq ft) house is ideal for either buyer category. It’s a short walk to the city centre or to the shops in Ranelagh.

To the front is a cosy living room with an inset stove and to the rear a pitched-roof extension opening out from the back reception room – used as a dining room – creates an informal living area. This new long room is dotted with roof lights and there are glazed double doors at its end opening out to the south-facing patio-style garden.

Often when these houses are extended, one large open-plan living, kitchen and dining area is added at the rear, but in this home rather than being entirely open, a wall that doesn’t run the entire length of the space, separates the living area from the extended kitchen. The dining table is in a new bay window at the end of the kitchen. New owners may seek to knock this separating wall to create a single open-plan space but its existing configuration works well.

Upstairs, there is a bedroom in the return beside the good-sized family bathroom and at the top of the house the largest bedroom is to the front with two sash windows and a fine original fireplace. The third bedroom, also a double, is to the rear on this level.

An attractive feature of the back garden is its tall granite wall – to the back of number 14 is the Edward Square luxury development in Donnybrook.

There’s a small railed garden to the front and parking is on street.
