Dublin Fixer-Uppers: 5 of the best property projects to get stuck into

By Christopher Jones

Welcome to our weekly look at the Dublin properties just waiting for a new owner to come along and make them their own.

You never know, your future dream home could be waiting for you among these diamonds in the rough...

42 Suir Road, Kilmainham
€315,000
3-bed terraced house

What a location! This attractive mid-terrace is a few steps away from Suir Road Luas stop and the Grand Canal, while there are bus stops to and from the city centre right outside the front door.

Downstairs, there's a living room, kitchen, bathroom and separate dining room that has a patio door leading to a charming, low-maintenance back garden. Upstairs are two double bedrooms and one single (with en suite).

46 Bessborough Avenue, North Strand
€325,000
2-bed terraced house

Though compact, this North Strand cottage is deceptively spacious, thanks to the extensions that have been added into the rear patio/garden, which still offers plenty of outdoor space.

The house, while in need of a refresh, is also very well located in the up-and-coming North Strand area, just off the main strip with its cafés, restaurants and bars, and within easy access of the city centre and Docklands.

7 Pembroke Cottages, Main Street, Dundrum
€350,000
2-bed terraced house

If you are in search of a statement property in a great location, this could be for you. In the heart of Dundrum village, right on the Main Street, is this gorgeous Victorian-era end terrace.

Downstairs there's a living room and separate sitting room - maybe a reconfiguration would be an idea - as well as a kitchen/breakfast room and shower room. Two bedrooms are upstairs, and there's a rear courtyard which has the potential to become a lovely city garden.

152 Glasnevin Avenue, Glasnevin
€475,000
3-bed semi-detached house

There's an amazing opportunity here to create your very own dream home - a big three-bedroom semi in need of full refurbishment, with huge gardens at the front and rear of the house as well as an adjoining garage.

With all that outside space an extension may well be warranted, while in the existing house you can enjoy the grand entrance hall, large rooms, high ceilings and bay windows. It's the kind of place many house-buyers dream of.

18 Roselawn Road, Castleknock
€500,000
4-bed semi-detached house

This house in sought-after Castleknock has plenty going for it, not least that extra large, open-plan living/dining room with views into the front and rear gardens. A good-sized kitchen and separate family room/study complete the ground floor.

Upstairs you'll find four bedrooms, the hot press and bathroom, while an extra selling point of this house is the large outhouse - with windows - at the end of the back garden. Perhaps this could be used as a gym, workshop or artist's studio.
