Are you on the lookout for a new family home? The house-hunting process can be tough, especially with asking prices on the rise. According to Daft.ie’s latest house price report, property costs in Ireland have risen by 2.7% in the past three months. In Dublin specifically, the average asking price is almost €155,000 higher now compared to five years ago. With that in mind, we’ve had a look through various property websites to find three family homes for under €350,000. The houses below are all in turn-key condition and are located within walking distance of primary and secondary schools. Could any of them be ‘the one’?

12 Cruagh Close, Cruagh Manor, Stepaside, Dublin 18 – €350,000

This two-bedroom property at 12 Cruagh Close is just a 10-minute walk from Stepaside Village and a 15-minute drive from Dundrum Town Centre. The home, which is not overlooked to the front or the rear, would make a beautiful family home. Not only is there a wide range of local schools nearby, it also comes with ample parking and has no property management fees. What’s more, Dublin Bus routes 44, 17 and 118, as well as the Luas green line are within walking distance. The house itself is in excellent condition and has been tastefully upgraded by its current owners. It consists of a spacious living room, kitchen/dining area, guest WC, main bathroom, two bedrooms (one ensuite), and a large attic. The south-east facing garden out back is beautifully landscaped and has a patio and decking area suitable for al fresco dining.

4 Eden Grove, Donabate, Co. Dublin – €349,000

Located within a family-friendly cul-de-sac near Donabate Village, this three-bedroom home in Eden Grove is bright and inviting. Each of the spacious bedrooms has fitted wardrobes, while the master features an ensuite bathroom. The fully-fitted kitchen gives access to a sunny south-facing garden, with a neatly manicured lawn suitable for young children to play on. Off-street parking is available too, and the house has easy access to both the M1 and M50. If you’d rather leave the car at home, Donabate is serviced by Dublin Bus routes 33B and 33D, as well as Donabate’s railway station. The house price includes all appliances, a security alarm system, double glazed windows, and gas-fired central heating.

20 Tara Hill Road, Rathfarnham, Dublin 14 – €300,000

This end-of-terrace house at 20 Tara Hill Road is just half a mile from Rathfarnham village and is close to a range of local primary and secondary schools. With three bedrooms, all of which include built-in wardrobes, it’s an ideal family home. The entrance hallway leads to the lounge and kitchen/dining room, while patio doors connect the kitchen to the garden. To the rear, a garden shed offers additional storage, while a spacious patio area can be used for entertaining. The interiors are simple and tasteful, with neutral wall colours and wooden floors. Other notable features include gas-fired central heating and a side passage from the front to the back garden.
