Correction - price drop of €55k, from €550k to current price of €495k, in two years, not exactly reflecting current price trends, thats a 10% drop in almost 2 years, we have seen alot more than a 10% drop in this area in 2 years. Also a house across the road in similar poor state and also a 4 bed semi sold for early 500’s 2 years ago and this had a south facing rear garden and a slighly bigger garden than the north facing one here that is only about 30 ft long!

Google Maps on myhome seems to be trying to put it beside Knocklyon ! :smiley:

Interesting. My parents bought on this street circa 1983/84 for, I think, 47 thousand punts. IIRC, the prices rose very sharply in the following years.

Can anyone do the inflation adjusted maths?

Super location. Really let down by the small garden with a terrible aspect.
There’s be nothing left if you extended into it.

Though to be fair, there’s a huge green area around the corner.

Could you not knock the garage and put in a two storey side extension?

I remember when this property was quoting 800k! hard to imagine now, think it was early 2008. House is not ideal, north facing tiny garden on a 1960s semi than has no proper living space, all gone if you extend and you will never see a ray of sun in the garden! not extactly a steal at even the late 300s! or am I wrong? think if someone wants to get into the area this will be their opportunity, wonder what it will go for?


#12

You could absolutely and get yourself a extra bedroom and some downstairs space. But I’d have the thought extensions are mostly done with a view to getting a bright family space with natural light - and the back of that house is always going to be bereft of natural light.

It’s just a con in a house that does have some pros, to be fair. The obvious one being the location! :smiley:
