For a 2 million euro house, the rooms sure are small. :shock:

Ah, this may explain it:

Quote:
This spacious home offers the intending purchaser two options, 1 existing detached on C. 1 Acre,(2) Site with full planning permission for 2 detached homes measuring C. 3,600 sq ft.


No 5 has also dropped price

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.pdf
https://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.

Want. :lol:

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?

I think these are sadly now superceded by those of Knock House in Waterford, posted by SoCoDu on the GBA thread.
