WIW 35 Mulgrave Street, Dun Laoghaire

Hi ya, i’d be interested to hear what folks think this is worth?

The lay-out is a bit weird with the living rrom in the centre and the light coming from skylights?, would i be off the mark if i said that this place is worth €200k tops?

€560 per square foot!

I think this could fetch in the region of €250k if they drop the asking price enough to sell it this season. It will need to be a substantial drop; the present ask will only appeal to buyers who have at least €325k to spend, and they’ll be looking for a lot more house for their money.

This certainly has drawbacks, the lack of parking being a huge one, but I think it’s got a fine location, is ok in size and is quite nice inside.

For me, in today’s market this will probably go for around €280k if they’re willing to countenance that. When you consider there are people asking nearly €300k for terraced ex-corpo properties in Sallynoggin, this price begins to look less mad.

Further down that same street, Sherry Fitzgerald recently sold a similar (though a fair bit larger) property very quickly that was priced at €475k.

Throwing number 40 in the mix:


I think 280 for 35 not far of the mark. 200 for 40 given the work required.

Seems to be knocking around for quite some time

Seeing that 35 is only half a house 200k more on the mark. Appartment size without the benefit of designated parking.

I was thinking the same given the size of the place. Can’t see anyone other than a single person or a couple who aren’t planning on expanding in the near future living here.

If i thought there wasn’t too much involved, i’d be looking at this place…probably needs heating, rewiring, etc etc

This seems like an underestimation if what Letron said is correct:

Edit: my mistake, should have read more closely, didn’t realise we were talking about somewhere in SCR all of a sudden. Scratch that - you’re absolutely right about the SCR place being 200 tops. Don’t think it’s even relevant.

A lot of the houses in that ‘enclave’ (excuse the EA speak) are in similar shape - this is the cheapest one I have seen. Roof probably needs a look as well (the flat roof extension for sure), the bathroom is probably in the extension which leaves you with the fab 3 room + stairs trek for a pee unless you move it (more expense) - presumably it’s to all intents & purposes identical to this renovated version myhome.ie/residential/brochu … -8/1373280?

I have no idea what number 1 sold for in the end…presumably because it went so quickly it must have been over €400k. I’m just guessing.

No. 1 does have rear access, which you may or may not be able to use as a parking (though it looks tightish). However, while this can be construed as a realadvantage, the rear lane running behind number 1 is a well-known site for messing and drinking. So swings and roundabouts.

Personally, I wouldn’t pay near €300k for number 35. But if number 1 has gone at the price it seems to have, I can easily see number 35 going for up to €300k.

Now that I think of it…would the actual selling price of number 1 be on the list that Sherry Fitz published not long ago?

Nice brainwave. I checked it out - but not before looking at no.1 on Google streetview. It’s not a semi-detached, it’s end of terrace. And the Sherry Fitz selling price list shows a 3-bed terraced house in Dun Laoghaire that sold for €422,000 (sherryfitzgerald.files.wordpress.com…5.pdf). That would fit with the asking price of €475k.
