The worst value house in Ireland?


Make no mistake about it- the tiger is back! Buy, buy, buy!


That doesn’t make any sense.


Having just posted something in the ‘is that value’ thread, here’s one for this thread: … -6/3780273

On first glance, it mightn’t seem too bad (650k for 121 m2), but take a closer look. The ‘dining room’ (part of the main/only living room) is measured at an impressive 24m long… Without that, the mews halves in size…


16 Gilford Terrace, Sandymount, Dublin 4

€524,950 for 50 m2 = **€10,499pm2 **(or €975 pft2)

No Garden. No off street parking. Needs work. No BER (not clear why).


#3786 … d-1509018/

an awful mix of grotty student flat interior and shambolic exterior in the arse end of Waterford for a mere 690k


Would suit reclusive axe murderer judging by pic 14, or is that in case you get panicked by all the cheap pine and maple. :smiley:


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 … n-1645826/


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

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


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.


Looks like it has appeared before:


#3793 … n-1751140/

’ 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.


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”?


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


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


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.


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… … -4/3865370


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?
