2 Leeson Village, Donnybrook (-350k, -24%)


#1

1.25m

1.45m


#2

Coming up on 2 years later and now asking 1.195m…they might require a bigger drop to get interest going


#3

They overpriced initially but going below €1.2M. might do the trick now.

The market is rising to meet their price. It’s a great location and a mature, upmarket development. 170 sq. m. with a decent bit of garden. €7k. per sq.m. is not out of line with the area. The double garage might clinch it.


#4

Yes you would have to think it should now go close to that figure.


#5

Well it didn’t seemingly!!!..now 1.125m


#6

Might not be a bad pp sq/m for the area, but the house really is fantastically ugly!


#7

I’m surprised this hasn’t sold and I think this may be a final drop to reflect a current offer.

When Leeson Village was built in 1980s, it was the height of urban sophistication in Dublin. But who wants to live n the 1980 if you have to pay 21st. Century prices?

Is the streetlamp in the first photo weirdly stunted or is that a trick of perspective?

Take yer eye out, that would!


#8

Bit of an awkward layout no ? Absolute pain being two flights of stairs away from one of your kids.


#9

I keep an eye on the count of properties on MH in certain ranges/localities. There has been quite a substantial increase in the D4/6 area in the 900k-1.25m range over the past few months. I think that is what is causing this. If you had 1.2m to splash you can probably do better than this place.


#10

Would be interested to know of this is covid related with being closer to work less of a pull factor in making decisions on where to live.

I live by the sea and have some friends buying in the bracket you mentioned above. Info from them is that anything walking distance to the sea is very well bid.

I know of someone in that bracket (and in these areas) who is selling up and moving to the sticks. They hope to bag about 500k as a result. For them it is a no brainer as they always wanted to leave Dublin once their working life was coming to an end. Covid-era has now enabled them to do this many years earlier. There are probably a number of factors at play as to why this bracket is seeing a big increase in supply and lower ranges (from my searches) are not seeing the same uplift in supply. I think also there are a number of new builds coming on in the D4/6 areas and for obvious reasons they are in the higher bracket. All in all I am seeing almost a 100% increase in 4/5 months.

Now 1.1m
