Looks quite large on the outside, but the interior photos make it look rather pokey.

Not a great location (main road, opposite a Spar and chipper - bypass has helped).

BUT, it really puts apartments in 3 beds newbuilds in the area in a very bad light.

Butler's Pantry is actually pretty much at the bottom of the hill, AND there's a Donnybrook Fair in Stillorgan now... On this house - it's right on the street pretty much, and slap bang in the middle of some not so pretty corpo houses too...

The EA blurb popped up in my inbox: "Seldom does the chance arise to purchase a detached property in such a locality" ..... ah, these EA's acutally get paid.

One thing the downturn has highlighted is how poor EAs are. They have gone from door openers to sales people and it is clear some are struggling.

Not the prettiest walk to the BP and Stillorgan? Next parish surely. Hardly a stoll away. You have the cross the N11 for a start.

There's a Butler's Pantry about 100 yrds from the bottom of Newtownpark Avenue.
Also, there's also a few useful shops further towards TGI Fridays.

No, it's not the best location in Blackrock, but it ain't the worst.
Castlebyrne Park is a bit dodge, alright.

But the real kicker is the house is right on the main road and the garden is in the front (on two sides).
I wouldn't be happy letting my younglings out with just a wooden fence between them and the outside world.

Furthest outer reaches of BR. On a main road. Edge of local authority housing (nothing wrong with that per se). I am struggling to find a property in BR I would less like to spend 500k on.

Let me add to the love-in: Newpark Comprehensive School is on the doorstep, so you've got crazy traffic conditions outside your gate not just in the mornings and afternoons but also three evenings a week for the adult night school.

No. I'd spend my money on the wreck opposite the church or the semi-d at the entrance to Rockville. This will sell just sub 400 mark. It is such a comprimised property that people will stretch to get one up on it. Again, as I mentioned above, it does put apartments in a very overpriced light.
