Three dream houses to buy in Stoneybatter right now

Stoneybatter is less than a 30-minute walk into Dublin’s city centre – but with so many amenities on your doorstep, there’s hardly a need to venture that far. For a neighbourhood dating back over a hundred years, it’s incredibly modern. Independent coffee shops hide behind every corner, while the main thoroughfare is dotted with bars, pharmacies, hairdressers, greengrocers, butchers and bakeries.

There are plenty of facilities for young families too, with various creches and schools along Manor Street alone. With its gates just a six-minute drive away, Phoenix Park could be described as your back garden, while the Lighthouse Cinema can be reached with a five-minute stroll.

As for public transport, Dublin Bus routes 37, 39, 39A, and 70 stop right outside your door. Plus, being so close to town, taxis are readily available. Has your interest peaked? Have a look at these three available properties now:

4 St Mary’s Terrace – €340,000

This quaint red-brick property at 4 St Mary’s Terrace is in an excellent location off Manor Street, just minutes from Dublin’s city centre. It has been fully renovated and features two bedrooms, one bathroom, a stylish kitchen and spacious open-plan living area. DNG Estate Agents confirm it’s in superb condition, with hardwood floors, recessed lighting, and Velux windows. On-street parking is available to the front of the house, while a private paved courtyard is out back. As it’s ready to live in, this would make a lovely home for first-time buyers.

17 Ostman Place – €385,000

This deceptively small-looking property is ready for someone to put their mark on it. Painted white throughout, 17 Ostman Place is a blank canvas waiting for some character. The charming cottage is surprisingly spacious and includes a 32-foot east-facing garden out back, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The living room features built-in storage units and a high-efficiency Morso stove. All rooms are bright and airy, while one of the bedrooms includes built-in wardrobes.

71 Manor Street – €575,000

This spacious property at 71 Manor Street maintains many of its original features, including ceiling coving, window shutters and a charming red-brick exterior. Comprising of three double bedrooms and one bathroom, it would make a beautiful family home. The house benefits from gas-fired central heating, double glazed sash windows, as well as patio doors leading to a 130ft mature back garden. Out back, there is a live-in studio with a shower-room, as well as a work studio that can be used as a home-office.
