Odd you should say that, I am surprised that this one hasn't moved also, at €850k *asking*. The plot size is great, and there appears to be reasonable scope to extend given the big job done on the first house on the LHS as you go down Nutley Park. It's very quiet yet great access via the bus routes etc, and of course if you're a golfer or tennis player, Elm Park is 200m away. I have relativese living on this road (opp side) and have been in a few times. These houses are very 'solid', hallway generous etc. I don't get it!
Agreed, it's certainly a great house. From just looking at the photos, it looks like it ticks all the boxes. Just needs its decor updated really - even though I don't actually mind it so much as is
Probably needs windows replaced, especially that glass wall at the back which presumably lets all the heat out of the house. A nice new set of 'celtic tiger style' bifold doors will fit nicely in their place! Just to give some history, I believe the house last sold in the year 1980 with Lisney after it was withdrawn at auction quoting £74,000 - so the owners are still doing alright if they did infact buy it then for around that sum. Given the decor, it has possibly been owned by the same person since - who, I believe, is/was a judge (or at least they were around 1994 anyway when they were definitely living here). Could have been bought privately since, though. I'm always hearing how we're back to below 2000 prices now, so in 1998 No.7 (4bed) and No. 20 (3bed) Nutley Park sold for £445,000 (€565k) and £440,000 (€558k) respectively, so we're still far off those levels. In terms of Nutley Park at the height, 58 Nutley Park (1st house on left as you enter from Nutley Lane) sold for €1.7m in 2005 - it had a slightly smaller garden then No. 43, 3 bedrooms, a kitchen extension, a separate one-bed apartment (instead of the garage) with kitchen, living room and bedroom. I assume it was also in a similar condition to No. 43, as in everything would be replaced. I reckon that the most they would have achieved for No. 43 at the end of '06/ start of '07 would have been around €2.5m in its current condition given the fact that its a four bed, larger south facing garden and the market would have improved from the beginning of '05 to then. Overall its probably fallen in line with the rest of the market, losing approx 2/3's of its value - so it will probably be bought soon as it is a fantastic family home in a prestigious area.
