Dublin Budget Buddy: The properties you can buy in Dundrum, Drumcondra, Leopardstown and Rathcoole for €600k

When house-hunting, what you are able to buy is very much dependent on your budget - and also on the areas you are shopping in.

Here we have four properties of roughly equivalent value, but very different in nature...

Penthouse 53, The Rowan, Rockfield, Dundrum
2-bed penthouse apartment

Suburban living doesn't get much more idyllic than this - a beautiful penthouse apartment located right next to the green fields of Airfield Estate, with Balally Luas stop on your doorstep and Dundrum Town Centre within easy walking distance.

The apartment itself is stunning, with a gorgeous, top-spec fit-out, high ceilings and enormous windows that bathe the place in natural light. There are two separate balconies too, including one accessible from both bedrooms.

Of course, €575k is a lot of money for a two-bed apartment, but you arguably get what you pay for.

Avondale House, 53 Church Avenue, Drumcondra
2-bed terraced house

This stunning Drumcondra mid-terrace is straight out of the pages of a property magazine - oozing with style and class, it marries the traditional appeal of a period, red-brick terrace, with the clean, cool lines of the modern extension at the back.

The house consists of a cosy living room, utility room, WC and huge kitchen/diner/sitting room on the ground floor, with two bedrooms and the family bathroom on the first floor.

There's even a little garden, beautifully landscaped, too.

7 Larkfield View, Clay Farm, Leopardstown
3-bed semi-detached house

The three-bed semi is something of a Dublin archetype. This one is short on outside space - there is a small back garden but the front door opens straight onto the footpath.

What you do have inside are generously sized rooms, including a living room, kitchen/diner and WC on the ground floor, along with three bedrooms and the family bathroom on the first floor.

The house is in a development right next to Leopardstown Valley Luas stop, with the M50 and Dublin Mountains on your doorstep.

Top View, Redgap, Rathcoole
4-bed detached house

Our last property is really in the countryside, close to the Dublin/Kildare border, about 3km from the village of Rathcoole. That means the shops and amenities are close at hand, but this house would suit someone looking for peace and solitude.

The house is really well-appointed, with a newly fitted kitchen, four bedrooms, three bathrooms, large living room, dining room and loads of outside space for kids to play in - the house is also set well back from the road via a dramatic driveway.
