Back in 2007 (as a site)

Looks like a lot of money lost on this one already!

27"A" - presumably this means it’s carved off from the original no. 27?

Yeah, built in the site as per top post.

See this went off the market the day after the floods. Signage down and off myhome etc. Saw house next door having water pumped from their drains. A connection?

Still sub 250 sq ft for a new house in his address seems decent value in my view - if there is nothing wrong with this house (question regarding the previous post re flooding) then this is not far off cost of build for a decent part of town ? iMHO

It was good value the first time it came on the market, and it seems like even better value now that it has re-emerged on the market thanks to the mini-boom we’ve been experiencing. Obviously living on the Stillorgan Road and having no back garden worth speaking of will put many families off, but the house appears to be finished to a very high standard and is relatively cheap on a price per square foot basis.

New listing at 795k

Take into account that the property area is just below 400sqm and in front of the N11.

Sale agreed on Myhome:

However, it has appeared today as a rental on daft at 3,500/month. No sign of the sale in the register…

Anyone know how much a house like this would cost to build ?

Would the asking price be close to cost (even before you include the site) ?

On the market again, asking 850k

Any views on this one?

704k plus vat

Looks like decent value for someone not too bothered about traffic noise. Finish looks excellent

Which would make 800k

The agent was fairly upfront after the open viewings that the basement had suffered water ingress during the 2011 floods. The water had sheeted in from Mount Merrion and the french drain/water pumps had been insufficient to ensure that it remained free of water. It was descried as little more than a couple of mms but some remedial work (I recall an estimate of €65k but could be wrong) was required to upgrade the pumps. Also there was an issue with the lightwells at the front which were inadequate. It sounded like they would be easily resolved and the house overall had a very high level of finish. There was no apparent damage from the water.

Good value for someone looking for a large house around here.
