Ok so this is a nice refurbishment although some might say that the character of the property is gone. The view in the last two pictures is not edifying. If I am correct it is not the Donnybrook Bus Garage but something else? I am not sure I would pay €450,000 for this view. Pinsters views please?!
It brings to mind the episode of Gavin and Stacey where they go flat hunting in a desperate Attempt to move out of his parents’ place and a creepy estate agent shows them a grotty flat which boasts a kitchen/ bathroom
It’s hard to believe someone calling themselves an architect actually designed that-for a start I’m sure it would be illegal in a new build. At the very least it makes the house unsuitable for anything other than a single person because even the strongest relationship in the world wouldn’t be able to withstand the sight of your partner lathering up their arse and the scent of Pantene wafting through the kitchen as you drink your morning coffee. Apart from the eugh factor, there’s the practical considerations like having to walk through the whole house dripping wet to get to your bedroom. This is probably 50% overvalued given that you’d need to spend another 50K decommissioning that abomination and getting an alternative put in upstairs as well as the asking price being nutso.
I wonder if the shower has replaced a bathroom that had been added by previous renovators. I’ve seen a good number of refurbishments around Dublin where a bathroom was added after the kitchen, using up part (or all) of the yard and subsuming the original outdoor toilet.
OP here. I did mean to include something about the BER rating. It is not the first time a total refurbishment neglected to address the energy rating. I remember a similar one in Windy Arbor some months ago.
I wonder if the architect being French Moroccan can explain some of the more unusual choices or maybe not? Maybe I cannot see it on the pictures but the decked area leading from the bedroom does not have any rails/safety feature? This could also be a security issue.
