1500sq feet = 597 per sq foot!!

Number 7 was 343 per sq foot (I think it was taken off the market)


343 per sq foot would give this one a price of 515k

Denial? More delusional, I would have thought.
Lovely leafy estate, the whole of Ardilea but I don’t think the factors that made it attractive of old are relevant now. Not walking to LUAS or Dundrum TC, no great shops within walking distance ( apart from that great SPAR at top of Roebuck) houses themselves a bit too 70’s and not great space.
I think this particular one would be a contender for “poorest value” or " most outrageous asking price"

No sale on register.

Now asking 1.65m, after a lot of work on the house.

3 Bed Detached House 252 m² / 2713 ft², BER B2
€608/sq ft

Sold €1.5m on 15-8-16

Did the new buyer get the bottle of Moet thrown in I wonder?

I’d want Dom perignon at least if I handed over that much cash

Back to pre-2016 price levels here, just sold for €1.43m in September 2020 - the vendor (who I understand has emigrated) paid €1.5m in August 2016. Given 4 additional years of wear and tear in the interim, you could say it realistically sold at in or around the 2016 price. Still, though, basically 4 years of price stagnation here all while the market in general (especially lower end) was rising very quickly.

Number 28 for sale, asking 1.295m

That looks very expensive compared to Number 4. Similar orientation but smaller plot, outdated interiors, no fancy extensions, very little rear landscaping… the list goes on. Still a good house but given Number 4 only got €1.43m this month, Number 28 isn’t worth €1.295m.
