I have a thing for Art Deco and they are very hard to come by in Dublin, other than the ones on the Howth Road which is obviously a different market.
I would be willing to pay over the odds for the Art Deco element but not that much over the odds. I will be very interested to see what this goes for, would be very excited if it comes within my price range.
ridiculous guide price! I went to view this a couple of weeks ago and it’s not in great condition. needs LOADS of work done to it. The windows were original and had sticky tape covering the holes in them! If it wasn’t for the heating on full blast I’d say it’d be shockingly cold in that house. Probably has a BER rating of Z.
It might also need structural work done as I saw lots of scary looking cracks. And I was also told that whatever way Art Deco houses are built that it might lead to problems with damp.
The planning permission for this increases its size by 1700 sq ft so i’m pretty sure that the damp and cracks can be accomodated in the rebuild. It would be unusual if the cracks indicated something seriously wrong structurally.
I’m not sure who this house is aimed at and can’t seeing it selling at auction unless there is a very low reserve. If it makes 700 it will be doing well considering its size but the FPP is a red herring. If one wanted 2700sq ft of property in a prime location I wouldn’t start from here.
I don’t know if it’s a uniquely Irish think possibly not, but when a site has PP for something bigger and better, they seem to expect to be able to sell it as if the something bigger and better was already built.
I can only assume they want to achieve a minimum of 855k and know nobody is going to offer the full asking at the moment so added on a %.
Doesn’t sound very advisable alright, I would have thought they had had their reality check yesterday!
