A selction of four properties available to buy in Rathfarnham, which are ideal family homes.

37 Riverside Drive, Dublin 14

 €875k  Beirne & Wise, (01) 296 2444

Keen golfers may be interested in this property as Castle Golf Club is only a short stroll away. No 37 has been in the same family since it was built in the 1950s so could do with some modernisation. It would be very easy to open the rooms up at the back and the rear garden is 120ft so there is definitely room to extend without compromising the garden too much, subject to planning. The semi-detached home has four bedrooms and a bathroom, with a garage to the side. There is a lawn to the front and the long back garden is west-facing with a patio.

7 Beaufort Villas, Dublin 14

€495k DNG, (01) 490 4666

This beautiful terrace of just nine properties in Rathfarnham was built in 1928. No 7 is dated and in need of work, but original features like the coving, dado rails and panelled doors are all still standing proud. With a floor area of 1,150sq ft, the house has a lounge to the front, a dining room with cast iron fireplace and a kitchen with utility area. On the first-floor return there is a bedroom and bathroom, and two more bedrooms up the next level. Located off Willbrook Road, Rathfarnham village is just minutes away and there is a range of schools and churches within walking distance.

39 Dodder Road Lower, Dublin 14

€695k    Lisney, (01) 492 4670

This four-bed, 1,337sq ft home comes with full planning permission in place to increase the living space to 2,325sq ft, if desired. The detached bungalow currently has the bedrooms to the front of the house and the living space at the back. Built in the 1930s, the house has high ceilings, picture rails and mahogany fire surrounds. The living room has French doors out to the rear garden and the kitchen is fully fitted with a free-standing cooker and fridge. The 68ft back garden is south-facing and there is a garage to the side of the property, with parking for a few cars at the front.

1 Hillside Park, Rathfarnham, Dublin 16

€625k Sherry FitzGerald, (01) 495 1111

If mucky football boots are the bane of your life, No 1 Hillside Park may be a house to consider. The owners have covered over the side passage with doors at either end and a wc so the kids never have to enter the house until they’ve cleaned up. The house has four bedrooms and two bathrooms and is within walking distance of Templeogue village. Downstairs is the kitchen, breakfast room, living room, dining room, family room and utility. Upstairs there are four bedrooms. The windows are double-glazed, but a BER rating of F may suggest that the house needs some extra upgrading.
