Good luck!

Eesh! Yes indeed, staring me in the face. That could be a tricky one alright!

If you are looking for inspiration for what to do with the back garden of this property, the next door neighbour's one could provide some inspiration.

The expression "Holy Shit!" seems apt for this one.

Heard a good one from a workmate today - he was looking at new houses over the weekend and described one apartment (in Leopardstown I think ) as 'straight to rental'!

Not bad, apart from the ugly couch. :wink:

I've passed remark on this house's monstrous (and non-matching) pillars before, and now its for sale we can see what's inside.

It's a remarkable snapshot of Ireland in 2008.

That’s some ugly brick. :sick:
Interior is horrible. I’d like to know who designed this so I can avoid them...

It looks like that because (according to the IT) it was designed to look like a hotel. High fives all round!

Ah, there's more glorious prose...

https://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-sty ... -1.3259372

There's a swimming pool in the basement but it's not pictured because....

Quote:
The basement would happily accommodate a fleet of vintage cars and has an unfinished swimming pool – ready to go but for tiling and a filtration system.
Cooke and his family are moving further out to the countryside, but the location here for him while travelling “was superb, because it’s 15 minutes to the airport in the mornings.”


15 minutes from the airport it is certainly not.

I could maybe live with the exterior if the interior wasn't so atrocious. Eye-juss, as a French girl I once knew would say.

Are they selling that thing as a gaff or a hotel? Great gaff for a family who don't like each other.

We should all aspire to needing a pair of binoculars to watch TV.
