Homeleigh is absolutely bonkers. Some of the houses make the Malahide McMansions seem modest.
My favourite is #6 which has a footprint of over 500sqm and "extends to" a quite astonishing 1024sqm (11,000sqft) over four floors including basement and attic.
Here's the public planning document and one of the Street views.http://documents.fingalcoco.ie/Northgat ... 014515.pdfhttps://goo.gl/maps/bnFSe
The columns are the largest I've ever seen on any domestic dwelling and the non-matchingness of them isn't an artifact of Google photo stitching but pure Celtic Tiger awesomeness. In real life it looks like a sort of orange Lincoln Memorial.
So the sale of this ordinary looking bungalow over the road offers, in my view, the potential purchaser a unique opportunity to create something even bolder and more assertive. I've checked on Google Maps and a full-size replica of the Taj Mahal mausoleum would just about fit, having a footprint of under an acre, but wouldn't leave much space for off-street parking, fountains 'n shit. Perhaps a basement car park like number 6 would be an appropriate modern addition?
