People are free to ask what they want, perhaps if they don’t want to sell they’ll ask something ridiculous. Perhaps they have a plan - if we could get X for the house we could move to the Canaries and keep a small flat in Dublin and we could both retire early - let’s try it and see.
It’s just that we have been looking at these houses same size same condition in the area for 8 or 9 weeks now and never seen one over 550k. Most are 475ish. I feel compelled to go and view it now to see what the pics aren’t showing.
That’s Cabra East on the rich side of Cabra Road not the 30’s corpo estate. Some lovely houses in there, close to the park/Phibsboro and Stoneybatter, which are Gentrifying areas. This is the part of Cabra the Kinihans are from, not the two up, two down that people associate with Cabra. Technically the area along the Navan Road up to the Halfway house is Cabra too. They renamed themselves sometime ago.
There are some big redbrick houses on the North Circular Road being restored to their former glory - usually in a pitiful state. (Particularly popular with younger legal types priced out of Rathar/Working the Criminal Courts/Four Goldmines)
I can only assume someone is hoping the cachet is rubbing off but it’s a crazy price considering much more gentrification of the area is needed
When I bought my house, one of the bedrooms had the radiator on the opposite wall of the window, I guess it will be the same here. (And had a fireplace in there as well - mid 50’ies standard heating system I guess).
One of the first things I did when I touched the heating system was to move the radiator under the windows. No idea why it was done that way previously.
I have a condensation issue in my house. None of the rooms have a radiator under the window but there’s condensation on the windows most mornings, even when the heating isn’t on. It’s double glazing but probably in a good few years
Thanks, have a dehumidifier that I got last black friday. It worked well and was full most nights though never solved the issue. Some rooms have vents, others don’t and thats something which is on my to-do list.
Anyways, I’ve derailed this thread enough. Apologies
