The worst value house in Ireland?


#3788

20 Coldwell Street, Glasthule, Co. Dublin

1 bed artisan terraced cottage with kitchen in a corridor and tiny rear courtyard accessed via the bathroom.

A whole 32sq.m

Asking 345k

Glasthule’s a nice spot and all but ffs.

I love the whole paragraph describing the local schools, as if this is a potential family home.

Luxury! I know those houses – they were built around the turn of the 20th c. without bathrooms or inside toilets, that’s an addition. The “storage shed plumbed for washing machine” would once have been the outside loo. As for it being a family home, believe it or not I know of families of ten that grew up in those houses in the days before indoor plumbing.

Or for 345k you could get a 47 sq m apartment in leafy Dublin 4, a short stroll from Stephens Green

Asking price reduced to 319k.
This must be the first sign of the crash!

On view tomorrow if you’re bored … and thin.


#3792

19 Percy Lane, Dublin 4

€1,695,000 for 119m2 = €14,200 per m2. That is getting back to the CT high point for a pretty bland house with no garden or privacy to speak of down a slightly iffy lane-way.

EDIT:

Looks like it has appeared before:

’ a blank canvas ’

large hand pointer not included

My father grew up in a house like that. Nine of them altogether, two bedrooms, a small sitting room, a kitchenette and outdoor loo. They used to wash themselves using a hand basin and a face clothe.


#3795

Uh, isn’t a blank canvas supposed to be ready to paint on? Looks like it needs lots of work to bring it to blank canvas status, on top of the €1k for each of its miniscule 330 sq ft. When they say “an opportunity not to be missed”, do they mean “here, catch this falling knife”?
:sick:


#3796

I think this will go 10-20% above the guide


#3797

That’s really sad!
Just imagine being saddled with a mortgage of about 680pm on that tiny hovel for the next 40 years.


#3798

Where are you getting €680/mo from?
Cheapest rates are around 2.5% which would cost you €990/mo over 40 years assuming 90% mortgage.
More realistically if we assume rates will average 4%, you take a 25 year term so you don’t have to work into old age, and Luan is right about the 30% increase … then you’re looking at €2k/mo for that piece of crap.

#3799

I based it on my tracker rate :blush: , but yes 2K would be more realistic and scary when you realise that you’ve sent youself up for 25 years, Mountjoy isn’t that far away either.

I know it’s location location location etc

but, not particularly big nor attractive…

#3801

Not very nice is it? Pictures of 2 of the loo’s show them sandwiched in tight between sinks and shower enclosure. In a 4 bed sub 1000 sq ft house that’d be forgivable. But in a 3500 sq ft house?

Beside light switches are located in such a way as to cause you to pull a muscle if operating them from your bed. And they seem to have limited the amount of wall sockets installed - forcing you into extension leads if your preferred layout doesn’t happen to align with theirs.

I don’t think there’s been a lot of attention to detailing. On a house of this price?


#3802

the loos are ridiculous


#3803

nice location but cant be worth that at 127sqm

#3804

Even more of a chancer here – €900k, looks like the top half has been lopped off it, single storey flat roof. When you read to the end of the ad you realise it’s being sold as a site. Happen to know of one round the corner, smaller plot but two-storey, better views, walk-in condition, 50% bigger, that sold for the same price in last 6 months.
