I remember the last time this sold, they paid 8 Mil! Looks like they are bailing, I wonder if they will get away w/o a loss, 8 Mil plus 9% stamp duty (720K) = 8.72 Mil, guess that would already be a loss. I guess we will see just how deep that loss goes from here.
It is one gorgeous home and located second to none in my opinion. Still, over priced in my mind.

Was 13.5! Last time I commented on this one, several years ago, it disappeared from any advertising, always thought that was a bit odd. Now back again, does anyone know the story? Maybe the bank owns it now, I’m pretty sure it was last bought for 8.5 million.
Certainly at 3.5, the sellers down at 12 Herbert Park may need to rethink there asking price.
€8m in 2005 and now €2.75m. 2005 was not even peak , shows how much the top end has fallen.
Lovely detached period house on a great road and a very nice garden, think this will go over the AMV. The one fault tho for a house in this price range is that it’s close to the road so lacks the big drive to the front to park the fast cars.
I would be surprised if this can be bought below 3.5m.
I would also bet that this will make the 4m mark and even a bit above it (c. 4.5m).
The AMV is set to generate the headline “D4 trophy home goes for 50% above asking”.
Still, one of the most beautiful houses I have seen in D4 (and elsewhere).
The house has been left to rot for several years, while the owners negotiated with the banks about disposal. There has been an enormous amount of water damage due to multiple leaks which were left unrepaired. The house requires 18-24 months of restoration work which will be time-consuming and expensive. But an extremely beautiful house at the end of that long process.
glasshouse is right, when you inspect the walls, the material comes away in your hands.
There is probably 1.5m or 2m at a push of full resortation and then full modern conversion here.
However I do think this is a unique house and merits it.
Question is if the cost of +3.5m purchase +1.5m refit works for this location (esp. if you are closer to 6m all-in).
