Went to this open viewing of a five bed detached in Rathfarnham. If anyone’s is interested here’s my thoughts:
show house was nothing like pics, not even the same layout and no furniture. It’s a wide narrow house- one room deep. You come in and kitchen is on left and sitting room on right.
the sitting room and kitchen were ok but not as big as a person wanting a 5 bedroom would want because it’s 3 story.
three decent sized bedrooms and two small. Nice walk-in wardrobe in one.
it’s not Rathfarnham. Horrible location IMO. The whole area is full of apartments and duplexes with lots of cars, and bits of unfinished construction everywhere. We accidentally drove into the estate across the road and whatever was being built out front looked like it stopped.
couldn’t see any amenities, like a shop.
basic small garden out back, very overlooked.
We didn’t go see the semi d as the location was a non-runner
Yes I think it was s2 in that brochure. It’d be an good house if it was somewhere else! I’m not terribly familiar with rathfarnham but if you were looking to be close to the village you wouldn’t even consider here it’s a good 4km away as far as I can tell.
I’ll see your Rathfarnham and raise you Castleknock, there’s some bit of continuity in the areas described losely as being Rathfarnham but from Castleknock you can drive on through Blanchardstown and Clonsilla and suddenly find yourself in “Castleknock” again, Glassnevin gets a dose too but not quite as bad as the other two.
