301 Clontarf Road

Dropped from 950,000.
Kitchen dated ,living space small.
Does any know what this part of Clontarf is like ?( don’t know Clontarf well at all )

It’s in the posh bit - quite small compared to the houses around it. It’s on a busy main road but the saving grace of many of these houses are their large back gardens - in this case there’s a house in it so the garden is small as well. It may also be prone to flooding as sea levels rise ( plus this may be the part of clontarf that rejected a flood protection barrier because it spoilt the view).
At 875k I’d view it as expensive for what it is - I think for that money you could do better.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.Appreciated.
Much in line with my initial thoughts .

Definite potential for flood zone. Not sure you can get a mortgage for a flood zone?

The house is near the wooden bridge and considered a desirable location due to sea views
As was said its a busy road,a long trek to the train station
Traffic is bedlam at peak times and the roads have recently been re configured for bus and cycle lanes
If Dublin Bus bus connect goes ahead the 2 lanes of inbound traffic from the end of the Malahide road will will become 1 lane adding to the bedlam
The house will take a lot of money to bring it up to an acceptable BER rating and modernise it
