This house has been for sale for years, price down over €100K and seems to
come off teh market and then back on.

Anyone know anything about it?

Someone I spoke to previously thought there was some issue with the neighbours or the field beside it! Sorry vague I know, it was over a year ago I was talking to them.

Location,


I think location is the key thing here or to be more specific where is the house in relation to the runways and approaches to Dublin Airport? The house is not specifically mapped on daft so where is it precisely in relation to the airport? I would think very carefully about this aspect.

Could be that it's on the flight path for the airport alright.

I drove by it the other day however is no where to pull in off the road to see if any plans fly over head :)

Is a lovely looking house though and has a putting green!!!

Yep, it's nice looking and while the putting green could be nice it could also be very noisy!

OK, I'll bite, how could a putting green be noisy??

How close is this to the proposed new sewerage plant site in Clonshaugh?

Short answer, no idea. Longer answer will have to investigate and see what I can uncover.

the misses loves this house

For a start it is on a very busy and dangerous minor road that leads to an over pass on the M1 and onto the airport road, it is the definition of a rat run from North Dub to Swords

Second that price is fukkin nuts €580,000 theres very little anywhere selling for that - top price €300,000 for what is a developed agricultural site

Third there is a travellers settlement less than 500m from this house - you will never be lonely!

Fourth - if you have kids then a community would be nice - no playing out on the street here!

Fifth - that price is still nuts - delusional!!!!

Also not forgetting plane noise polution

Finally, this road has traditionally been used for fly tipping, they used to call it the midnight run in the area, during the boom it abated but there is a definite increase in the evidence for bin tag avoidance over the past few years

I had this debate with the misses and she now agrees

Even if the price was right I wouldnt be interested

Think Bjorn again has hit it on the head... overpriced for what is a nice house but a very poor location.
The downside could be quiet hight what with the potential for lots of noisey neighbours/planes/high traffic volume etc.
Even with a much lower price.... it would still have all of these negatives.

Of course if you know & like the area... it may appeal a little and you probably have the benefit of being on your own in terms of bidding for it.
