In 1997 I was elected Taoiseach. My financial situation had settled to a point where I was comfortable to buy the house, using the option to buy which I had arranged from the start. I therefore bought the house for £180,000 in October 1997. My purchase of my home was financed by a mortgage of £150,000 from the Irish Permanent Building Society, the balance of £30,000 was financed from accumulated savings in a savings account with that Society.
£180000 today valuation on pstb website is €763872
Beresford Avenue, Drumcondra
This was based on a market valuation from an auctioneer who had put the open market value at about £185,000.

I’m afraid the PTSB calculator can’t factor in the “I live on the same street as an Ex Taoiseach” factor.
The ability to pop in to your neighbour and say:
“I’m having a few friends over for tea and I’ve run out of sugar,
any chance of a dig-out?”
Plus, one tip on the horsies a week from neighbour Bertie and you’d easily cover that extra 700K that you had to pay for the house.
Is the value attributed not a bit high for this house considering it was 1997, in pre-boomier Pre-Celtic-Tiger Ireland?
