It’s a nice quiet development though I’d say a lot of them are renters.
There’s usually at least one on Daft.ie at any one time

The second house does have a nice aspect and a bit of potential, but you have to ask yourself how much a two story extension is going to set you back. (Realistically the upstairs is tiny so there’d be little point in extending the ground floor only). Cost that extension/restructure and add it to the asking price less 15% and would you not get something as good without the hassle for the total? I’m not so sure.

I’ve been in a Merrion Park house and can’t stress enough how small they are. I wouldn’t even consider trying to raise a family in one of these. The kitchens are not even big enough for a decent table & chair set. I think the EA has done a good job with the photos for No. 31.

Yep, probably this one is better value. Not so far, same kind of development.
But 105 sqm. Pretty dark and thin walls in my opinion anyway.

^^ The problem with the Treesdale house is no doubt that 105 sqm includes the conservatory which isn’t a year-round functioning room. The house itself is probably as small as the Merrion Park one - but there is zero scope to expand here - ever!

You are literally stuck with 105 sqm for as long as you live there.

Treesdale is now sale agreed. I think 305K was the price.
