SoCoDu has already opined on this under the 'Altmont, Foxrock' thread (don't have the expertise to link the threads) - but seemed to be a fan on the property and the price.

Looks pretty cute if not almost fairytale like - very endearing

The photos imply it is in reasonable shape inside - gardens look amazing

Another major mansion on one of Dublins best roads - personallt can't see a 4000 sq ft 3 bed breaking the 3 mill mark in this area - I have also wondered if Foxrock, on other threafs, post the carrickmines m50 link will retain it's cache (with some pushback I might add)

As one of the most expensive houses on offer in the capital it deserves it's own thread.

Its not often you look at a photo for a minute before realising; "Hey it's a bathroom!" (Pic 15)

Swishy curtain land!

Still, it really is special. Much more impressive than certain houses on posh roads in Ballsbridge.

agree with you Homeboy - kind of house that young kids would love - almost fairytale-like ?

Love the house and I'm no expert on Foxrock but should this house not be priced closer to 2m?

I completely missed that !
It's like one of those 'magic eye' posters - only after looking at it for a long time do you see what it's meant to be. :D

Only just seen that now - that is very funny

Like a scene from Louis XIV in Versailles - the assembled court can observe while you take a royal ......

Still, something very endearing about the outside of this house but perhaps will always be for a 'niche' buyer ?

Cooldrinagh, Kerrymount Avenue, Foxrock, Dublin 18
€4,250,000 - 3 Bed Detached House 380.9 m² / 4100 ft² (1 Acre) For Sale
http://www.myhome.ie/residential/brochure/cooldrinagh-kerrymount-avenue-foxrock-dublin-18/2901463

I think this house has been for sale for at least three years (if not longer) ?

Cooldrinagh looks very beautiful and the gardens also look very beautiful. Kerrymount is also a very nice road.

The nearby M50 and its exits into Foxrock, have changed the character of this area considerably in my view. I have the feeling that Foxrock prices have fallen behind Monkstown / Dalkey / Killiney prices, over the past few years. There have only been 2-3 sales over 3m since 2010 (Killiney has had at least 6).

The internals of the house seem a bit unusual - 3 bedrooms for a 4,000 sq ft. house ? It will be additional cost to re-structure this to modern affluent living. I suspect, given the history, that this is a heavily listed house, and therefore such re-structuring might not be straightforward. Also a pity that the historical back garden of the house seems to have been sold off for another development and thus the house is stuck into a corner of the site. Would have been lovely when it sat right in the middle of a larger c. 1.5 acre site.

The asking of 4.25m is nowhere near realistic. The benchmark is Stanford House on nearby Westminister Road (almost equally good road to Kerrymount), which went for 3m (1.5 acres + 4,000 sq ft.) at the end of 2014. Even 3m would be a push for Cooldrinagh.

Can't understand the pricing of this house and why, given the high level, they have kept it advertised for so long. Usually when a seller has very strong expectations of price, it is left off-market to be only introduced to the 'right buyers'. This strategy does not make sense to me.

I actually wonder if this house is really for sale (in the normal sense of a willing seller)?

Something so out of the price region smacks of an owner trying to clear a mortgage.

I often wonder why they bother.
Surly even the vendors know this price is not achievable.

I would be surprised if there is a mortgage.

Is it in NAMA?

Dispute over it apparently and NAMA was trying to enforce security in 2013:

Judge slapped NAMA in 2014 but rules she was on the hook for the loans: http://www.rte.ie/news/business/2014/0725/633159-flynn/

Sounds like a €4.5m mortgage would be the least of their problems...
