This property has been home to three generations of the same family since it was first built by Dublin Corporation in 1938. The first owner, Jimmy Courtney, was a tram driver on the Howth route. His son availed of the popular purchase scheme offered to take local authority homes into private ownership, and it eventually passed to today’s vendor, grandson of the original owner. We are not going to beat around the bush on this one – this end-of-terrace two-bed is definitely a fixer upper. Whether you could live with it while doing the necessary updating would depend on whether or not you included structural alterations in the initial plan. EXPLORE INSIDE The small hall leads to the sitting room and, from there, a door takes you through to the kitchen. The original fireplace in the sitting room has been closed in, but the chimney structure is still there and the installation of a stove would probably be an easy fix. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms. The bathroom is accessed from one of the bedrooms. These homes would have been originally built without the benefit of indoor plumbing so this bathroom will have been an addition. EXPLORE OUTSIDE The rear of the property has been paved over and there is a brick-built shed at the end of the garden. The front garden is in the original configuration with a path and grassed area; some houses in the immediate area have reorganised this space to provide off-road parking and this might be an option. This is a very established area with houses currently being snapped up by first time buyers who value the convenience of the location. Terenure, Rathgar and Harold’s Cross are all within walking distance. There are convenience stores a short walk away on the Lr Kimmage Road, and Sundrive Shopping Centre is a 5 minute spin away for the ‘big shop’. Transport option are good with numerous bus routes in easy walking distance. THE BOTTOM LINE After 86 years in the ownership of a single family this property is ready for a new adventure. It will take a buyer with vision and enthusiasm to transform it into the palace it undoubtedly can be. Nevertheless, it is coming to the market at below €400k and we are expecting strong interest.
