Buyer paid VAT on this (as it was a new build), bringing their total purchase price to 2.33m.
Still, the main area of strength in Dublin high-end is for (a) very high-end new builds / re-fits, and (b) prime D6.
In that regard, Richview meets both criteria, and therefore a 40% uplift to a 2012 bottom price is achievable.
It will be the return of the “rich” to Richview
Do people paying 3.5 million for a house really want one with no garden? I can see that the finish is terribly high end and grand but there is not a blade of grass! They haven’t even bothered to make the outside look attractive with pot plants
It is a relic from the “tiger” when everything was +10m.
They got a small detached 1960s house, at the bottom of the cul-de-sac in a small housing estate in D6 and built this.
You wouldn’t build this standard of house today, on such a small site in such a down-market location, as you could buy better.
It is more like a glorified town-house (2005 style, so its almost 6,000 sq ft), built for entertaining / guests etc. (not kids).
Still, there are so few nearly new high-ends available now, (because Irish banks don’t foreclose), that it will get bid.
Wow. Vast rolling vistas of expensive-looking flooring. It seems to be difficult if not impossible to make the interiors of houses this big look non-ridiculous; you either get the empty look, like this, or the ‘crap hotel’ look, with hundreds of sofas scattered around the place.
