Address: 17 Tuansgate, Tallaght, Dublin 24

Agent: DNG Tallaght

This 40.93sq m ( 441sq ft) one-bedroom apartment is on the first floor of this scheme near the hospital. Within walking distance from The Square, the home has a double bedroom, a bathroom and an open-plan living and kitchen area which opens on to a balcony. BER: C2

It is in good condition with decent details such as stainless steel sockets and lights switches and a Neff hob, all in an apartment scheme with a courtyard. However, the views out are to other high buildings and there is a service charge of about €1,250 a year.

This 66.98sq m ( 721sq ft) property includes a main house with three bedrooms on the first floor and a “chalet” at the back with another bedroom. Needing an update, the house has a mature back garden with vegetable patch, flowers, shrubs and trees. On the ground floor are two reception rooms, a kitchen, scullery and bathroom. BER: G

It is near Lough Currane and the sea and beside a primary school. However the link with the garden is poor – some large holes need to be knocked through at the back.
