Big house (4,500 sq feet), but no internal pictures and a BER rating of G!

That's a good size second drop.

Now works out at €353 per sq foot.

Shame about the energy rating being "G1".

Perhaps a few more drops yet before this one sells.

Well over a year since the last price drop - perhaps time to slash another decent sized chunk to try to get people in to view it.

I would imagine this needs substantial work judging the outside view as well as the lack of internal photos.

Can't see this one achieving over the million mark in the current market.

don't think anything was done to this house in the last 70 years, hence no pics of inside ...

note to ea: bumping the ad won't get buyers. Take the 1 off the price and you might get a sucker in..

Failed property play - http://www.sdublincoco.ie/index.aspx?pa ... D07A/0471&

Quote:
Demolition of existing 2 storey and attic level 6 bed detached house and the construction of 4 no. 2 storey and attic level 4 bed detached houses, the closure of 2 no. existing vehicular entrances and the construction of a single replacement vehicular/pedestrian entrance from Ballyboden Road with on and off site development works.


Four houses into one - it could have made slightly more sense a few years ago. But they were asking 2.8 million back then. Add to that building and site preparation costs of at least 1.6 million for four 2,723 square feet houses, development levies, professional fees, cost of money and the need to make a profit means that the four houses would have to have sold for at least 1.6 million each - c. 600 per square.

But it barely made sense in the bubbly times. There were a lot of such small property developments going on and a lot of people got burnt.

wonder why they did not sell it off after it failed rather than wait.

Link not working. The daft link works but only 1 pic.

Ballyboden road doesn't have the best transport links. 74a and 15b. But traffic mental getting into town as no bus lanes really until rathgar road.
