Now with a new agent at 695
Clearly not too many takers for 70s dormer bungalows (at these prices anyway)…
Not quite a price drop, but this seems to be a new low for the Avondale Rd area of Glenageary - 430K for 13 Arnold Grove myhome.ie/residential/brochu … lin/210844 (No interior pics, so safe to assume it’s a “do-er-up-er”)
13 Arnold Grove sale agreed
property.ie/property-for-sal … in/518635/
Shows that there’s a market around that price alright.
Don’t mean to spoil the party but why are we comparing a fairly drab looking semi (with a hilariously narrow back garden) with detached dormers that have much better positions and more square footage - not to mention impressive looking grounds? Compare the pics - who wouldn’t pay a lot more for one of the latter compared with the former.
17 Avondale Road, Killiney
Sold 25 Jun 2010
yellowschedule.com/house_price_d … illiney%26
68a sold for €675k
mentioned below 2010 going for €795
Im sure 68A is nice internally but there is no garden, you could buy a house on that road that needs update but with a massive garden for less.
houses on avondale road for less than 675k?
#81 is probably the kind of thing your are thinking about at 695k
but what price an increase in sq footage and general overhaul? 200k doesnt go very far any more
23 was 15k more (690), needed refurb but much bigger garden, better location
75 was 650k, needed refurb and you could land a plane on the garden
81 was same, not sure what they got for it
10 Cluney Manor was 765k, bigger house, garden, better BER but semi D
46 has just gone SA, that was way over priced asking IMHO not sure what they got.
I go past 68A every just don’t see the attraction but it wasn’t my money so…
im not saying it would be for me either but buying fixer uppers is very expensive, so you need to factor in 150-200k to update them (without adding significant footprint)
the bottom end of avondale road is a pretty good location imo (closest Killiney hill roundabout), near glenageary dart, near dalkey village
reasonable value (such as it exists)
Having just bought a wreck ill let you know in a year or 2 how it compares
the very best of luck
Budget €100 per sq ft
€645K for decent house and garden in good location on (just off) the Avondale Road
Seems like very soft pricing
Owner died in 2010, “devoted to her garden” according to obituary. Google street view shows very overgrown garden, so I’m guess it was unoccupied since then. Possibly needed plenty of work. Still … 4 beds, 1900 sq. ft., < €350 per sq.ft.
It was lived in and maintained up until the sale. It was fine to move into like most houses it would benefit form a face lift and insulation but it was in better condition then most sold around there.
Yeah, my speculation was wrong. I swung by there tonight and it looks fine. Classic Avondale 60s dormer style, probably needs a ton of insulating but a fine house nevertheless. Cheap for the location
