Ireland, Dublin

DNG is seeking €1.25 million for 10 Crannagh Road in Rathfarnham, a fine five-bedroom Stringer-built home. While parts of the 164sq m (1,765sq ft) property could do with an upgrade, the rear garden - laden with fruit trees and extending to 30m (100ft) – offers enormous potential to extend, subject to planning.
