24 Butterfield Drive, Rathfarnham, Dublin 14 (-2.4m, -66%)

BER: G1.

Is that two semi-d’s stuck together? A giant B&B?


#5

Almost a year later, and no movement in the price, they must not be in a hurry to sell. Don’t think that they would have had any viewings at that price?


#6

considering the amount of work needed, i doubt they would even get 500k …

and I was told they had an offer of 1.8million on it … over a year ago :angry:


#7

A contender for Worst Value House in Ireland thread?

Not far off.

Nice enough area but the price???!!

Also- what’s the target market? Money no object, 8/9 kids, a certain fondness for run-down,over-priced, poorly insulated & cavernous houses in Rathfarnham?

Very broad appeal. Can’t understand why it hasn’t sold already.


#8

1.695m

#9

only another million more to go …


#10

:laughing:

You have to love the carpet in pic 12. Worth a million on its own.


#11

I heard that the EA said that the price was €4,250,000 at peak.

So it is a drop of 4.25m to 1.69m a whopping 2.56m reduction which is over 60%!!!


#12

All I can say about that is the EA was and still is f**kin deluded. Would not be spending this kind of wedge to live here.


#13

This house is still at 1.695m

Sold? Curious to see for how much.


#18

I’m interested to know too. This thing had been knockingvabout for almostbasblong as it took me to buy abhouse. Thought this should have been at 995 to sell about two years ago. They might have got a bit more now given the bounce but surely way off the asking. Could suit someone with 7 or more kids nicely though and about 300-400k for a refurb


#19

Sold for 1.25m

The buyer of this did a nice job. Curiously, it seems that the buyer (a very wealthy business person) actually bought both:

i) 24 Butterfield Drive for €1,250,000 on 31 Jan 2014
ii) 23 Butterfield Drive for €1,401,000 on 3 Oct 2014

Dropping €2.65m on a single street in Rathfarnham in 2014 was no easy feat! Amazing that they were able to snap up two so unusually good properties on the same street. Certainly spent another 7 figure sum on 7,000sqft+ of extensions and renovations of the existing houses, bringing it to €4-5m all in easy.

Both are now absolutely magnificent. 24 Butterfield Drive has been totally extended and renovated, now with 5,770sqft of space. 23 Butterfield Drive is out-of-this-world and is now a colossal 8,816sqft - a pretty insane size for this part of the world, but he can definitely afford it!

That buyer being David Bobbett “Kitchen King”
