Part of a Victorian red brick terrace originally built for local factory workers, No24 Foyle Road features 1,025 square feet of living space presented as a clean, blank canvas with fresh paint and solid oak floors throughout.
Off the hallway is a front living room which leads into a dining room and kitchen at the rear, with two double bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. While the long, cobbled courtyard screams color, it has a lot more outdoor space than most historic buildings near town.

4 Annadale Avenue
€525,000 Gallagher Quigley (01) 818 3000
With a roster of famous locals that includes the late TV host Larry Gogan, Panto star Maureen Potter and actor Brendan Cauldwell, Fairview is rich in historic properties that, like them, have plenty of character.
One of these is 4 Annadale Avenue with original features from the 1880’s, including high ceilings, coving and fireplaces, along with a recently renovated interior that’s straight out of the pages of a glossy magazine.
The effect begins in the entrance hall with its floor tiles and bold blue wall, which leads to a living room, family room, kitchen/dining room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Outside there is a terrace, raised beds and a herb garden.
26 Cadogan Street
€425,000 DNG Fairview (01) 833 1802

In 2006 the house was re-piped, re-wired, protected against moisture, re-plastered and a new central heating system was installed. The accommodation comprises a high arched entrance hall, a living room, a living room, a kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a courtyard style back garden. Clontarf darts station is a 10-minute walk away.

€725,000 Sherry Fitz Gerald Killester (01) 833 6555

At 1,378 square feet, No153 is ripe for a home improvement revolution by remodeling and building on the attic, pending planning.
The existing accommodation comprises a living room, dining room, breakfast room and kitchen on the ground floor and three bedrooms and a bathroom on the upper floor. There is an added bonus in the form of a 226 square foot isolated home office at the end of a long west facing back garden.
