Three dream houses to buy in Drumcondra right now


by Grace McGettigan
10th May 2018

Famous for the towering grounds of Croke Park stadium and the nearby Botanic Gardens, Drumcondra is a sought-after destination for renters and home-owners alike. The town is one of the oldest suburbs in Dublin’s north inner city; with notable former residents including writers James Joyce and Sarah Atkinson. The main thoroughfare is lined with pubs, bars and restaurants; Fagans, the Ivy House and Independent Pizza are particularly popular.

Drumcondra is an ideal spot for young families to set up too; primary and secondary schools (religious and otherwise) are scattered throughout the area. Colleges and universities (including DCU, Trinity College and St Patrick’s) can be easily reached by public transport. Other amenities include the nearby Mater Hospital, GP clinics, pharmacies, gyms, Mountjoy Garda station, and convenience shops.

While the city centre is 20 minutes walk away, Drumcondra is also serviced by Dublin Bus routes 1, 16, 33 and 41, and the DART station is on your doorstep. Want to move here? Have a look at these three properties available to buy right now.

14 Corn Mill Row, €450,000

This large, three-bedroom townhouse has been designed to the highest quality. The living room at 14 Corn Mill Row is warm and comfortable, while the kitchen is the heart of the home; its polished black granite worktops and under-counter lighting make it appear clean and elegant. The property also includes an upstairs study (separate from the bedrooms), and landscaped grounds to the back. An electronic gate and intercom provide additional home security and car parking is available too.

12 The Village, €335,000

So bright and quaint is this end-of-terrace you’d almost mistake it for a seaside townhouse. With one bedroom and one bathroom, 12 The Village is ideal for couples or single-person buyers. According to estate agent DNG, the property has been remodelled to a high-spec finish; including a SieMatic fully-fitted kitchen, a marble bathroom suite, a Morso wood-burning stove, and a sunny south-facing rear garden. The attic conversion (which includes built-in storage space) could be used as a home office or a sleeping area for guests.

28 Claude Road, €650,000

This red-brick property at 28 Claude Road would make a lovely family home. Located in a quiet cul-de-sac, the house is spacious and maintains its traditional bay windows. The living room is bright and homely with a marble fireplace and built-in storage units. The kitchen shows great character with its timber ceiling and Velux windows, while the dining room offers an alternative space to entertain. Sure, the interiors could do with a revamp, but beyond that, the property is ready to live in. Not only does the house have three double bedrooms and one single bedroom, it also features a converted attic with a shower room. A west-facing garden at the rear of the property is also included.
