Just wondering if anyone has been to see any of these properties around South Circular/Clanbrassil St - I do find the villa style very appealing but the converted layout isn’t always the most practical. But a 2 bed is a 2 bed on the other hand, and 300k for a 2 bed in an area near not very good areas is a bit … saucy?
Good to know - thanks for that info mr. agent! (Should have thought of auction results myself, have I learned nothing from the pin )
I really only want to borrow 2.8 times my salary so am abandoning pipedreams of Rathgar…
I do quite like it but yet again marvel at the genius of the Sherry Fitz photographer - always a great job. It has sort of utility shed as well out the back, but realistically needs new kitchen and probably wiring in about half the house, and the bathroom is very small (as are the back bedrooms). Apparently offer is in of 255k. Without seeing the other two I’m wavering, but it is a bigger house on a slightly better street - that said, bigger than I need. If there wasn’t an offer, I’d probably have made one subject to survey, region 225k. Part of the logic behind that might be frustration i.e. no logic at all.
But a utility room! The luxury!
ETA - harping on at myself now, but sure anyway… sale agreed as of June 30. Up for sale for what, 3 or 4 weeks? Saw the other two, the FF one is fairly crap, am thinking about the DNG one, had already decided I preferred it to SF one when I saw it had gone sale agreed. My buddy obviously figured I wasn’t serious.
I was wondering where this house was seeing as I live in the area and the address didn’t ring a bell until I drove past it on New Row South. It appears that ‘Lauderdale Terrace’ is one of the old names you see quite often on the end house of a Georgian or Victorian terrace but is no longer in use as the street name (if it ever was in the first place.) I presume this is being done for snobbery and to distinguish these houses from the newer development called New Row Square.
There is no ‘Lauderdale Terrace’ on the official list of dublin street names or the OSI map or Google maps or Bing maps and a google search only brings up property related links.
Have a drive around the area as well as looking on line - there are a good few houses for sale with small local agents that are not on myhome.ie or daft. 2 on Washington Street, a couple on St Albans, one or two on Raymond Street I think.
Thanks - sale agreeds seem to drag on for 3 or 4 months these days. Some unagree in that period of course
Had a look at 2 on St Albans - one (Felicity Fox) isn’t very nice. The DNG one is lovely in parts but has some flaws, mainly that second bedroom is too small. The Murphy Mullan one opposite is asking over 500k. The SF one needs mountains of work. Will try get down to get info on what’s on in Washington St and Raymond St - I’d quite like Raymond st in particular.
further out towards Dolphin’s Barn is not a runner tho.
That said, I think it’s time to think about giving up. If I can’t afford a mid terrace in Kimmage (6w Kimmage but still Kimmage, and they are asking 7.5 times the avg ind wage) really do I want to be getting involved at all? 3x (where x is not to be sneezed at) + deposit gets me not very much.
