Address: 18 Innisfallen Parade, Phibsboro, Dublin 7
Agent: Kelly Bradshaw Dalton
This mid-terrace house located just off Dorset Street is close to colleges, the Mater hospital and Drumcondra railway station. Extending to 57sq m (614sq ft), there is potential to add more space in the form of a double-height extension to the rear – as the house is split level – and there is precedent for this type of construction on the road, subject to planning. With timber flooring throughout, the property had a new boiler and insulation installed in 2019, and though the outdoor space to the rear is small, the Blessington Street Basin, Phoenix Park and botanic gardens are all within walking distance.
Plus: Central location and two double bedrooms
Minus: Traffic could be an issue on GAA match days
Address: Crossbane, Mullagh, Co Cavan
