Splashed in the paper 5 days ago, asking 1.3m

What is with interior designers these days and all the GREY GREY GREY? Ugh.
Photos look photoshopped. They can't really be that grey. Can they?

Already reduced to 1.15m

Bizzare pricing strategy. I doubt this would make anywhere near 1m in the current market

Seems to be a fair bit of choice around for this sort of house

Is there? I'm looking at stuff between 700-1m (the upper limit of which I can't afford but keep an eye on to compare value) and there's really not that much on offer that satisfies the criteria:

- Outside the M50 & left of N11 (D16, D18, west Wicklow)
- Decent size site (0.5 acre upwards)
- Two or more storeys

(not sure if this is the appropriate place for a WiW-type discussion)

Here's a few, granted they don't meet all your criteria, there's one up tibradden lane too.

There's also this which is big and weird but I suspect has planning issues (can't find planning on DLR website for the second storey as it's currently configured):

New Bawn, Old Connaught Avenue, Bray, Co Wicklow
€850,000 - 6 Bed Detached House 330 m² / 3552 f
http://www.myhome.ie/residential/brochu ... ow/2989300

Basically, of those only two are nice: Oldfield Lodge (a 2 bed) and Springfield.

Maybe I should go for a look at Springfield, but 845k for a tiny 2up-2down cottage with a fancy extension doesn't really seem like value to me.

Anyway back on topic I still think that in the context of the currently available country-near-city dross Granville doesn't look like awful value at 995k, even if the "Mansard" roof looks a bit flat-topped.

Didn't realise Springfield was a semi d. The 1.2m one on kilmashogue is extremely overpriced IMO. However I'd say likelihood of housing there is low enough, at least based on what st Thomas house and land including the golf course went for. Who knows 10 or 15 years down the line though.

Personally I like the tibradden house but I'd only want to pay site value so I could knock and rebuild.

Granville actually doesn't look that bad value relative to the others on closer inspection, assuming it goes for 150k less than current asking.

Mill House popped up in a myhome alert so I thought I'd find out what happened to all the properties I posted about in July 2015, 18 months later.

Granville eventually sold at €975k on 14/10/2016, 225k under asking in July 2015.

Cielito, was asking 850k, no sign on PPR or myhome.
Springfield, was asking 845k, sold for 785k on 11/10/2016
Dun Chuilinn, was asking 850k, sold for 850k on 28/01/2016
Mill House, was asking 1.2m, now asking 950k.
Broughshane, was asing 875k, last seen on journal.ie for 695k
Oldfield Lodge, was asking 790k, no sign on PPR or myhome.
Bayview House, was asking 925k, no sign on PPR or myhome.
Blueberry Lodge, was asking 625k, now asking 650k.
New Bawn, was asking 850k, no sign on PPR or myhome.

So scorecard is:

3 sold, one for asking and the others for quite a bit under.
1 still for sale at 80% of prior asking.
1 still for sale at 104% of prior asking.
5 disappeared without trace.

And this is on the outskirts of a city which has seen steady price increases for the last 5 years.
