I know Laraghcon loves Laraghcon - and it is a nice estate with nice houses etc. - but this is a lot of money for a semi-d.
I think the majority of people would prefer detached but you can't really hold being a semi-d against it - there are many €1m+ semi-d's and many very beautiful semi-d's.
It doesn't have any real potential for extension or remodelling and the garden is tight.
At 1800sq feet and 5 bedrooms I doubt many will want to do that much anyway. In a way that's the appeal with it - move in, live happily, no more pouring money into house (I speak from experience).
The back garden being small would be my biggest issue. Also I see a small green outside on streetview but is there anything more substantial for playing on in the estate?
I'm not sure I'd part with €500k for it but I can see the appeal of it, especially at €450/60k ish.
Yeah, I was probably being a bit harsh
Actually, I hadn't realised it was 5-bed rather than 4-bed so my comparison with Beech Park was unfair. Probably no major need to expand unless you have a huge family.
St. Catherine's Park has a nice playground and a skate park which might be fairly handy. I still think there's one too many internal wall downstairs. I wonder if the wall between the kitchen and the middle sitting room could be opened up.
