Hundreds queuing.

Waiting lists.

People wandering aimlessly.

Rose Doyle, in today’s Irish Times, reports:

Hamilton Park [in Castleknock] is funded by Nama. About half of the 44 houses in this first phase of three- and four-bedroom houses will be ready to move into before Christmas, the rest by spring 2016. Hamilton Park should be completed by 2018… The three-beds with 111sq m (1,200sq ft) and 112sq m (1,215sq ft) cost €395,000, the four-beds with 144sq m (1,550sq ft) and 150sq ft (1,615sq ft) are €490,000. A single, detached three-bedroom version is €425,000, and a detached four-bed, €550,000.

Randall writes:

I was just reading the usual gushing ‘cut and paste’ from the estate agents brochure in the Irish Times about a multi million euro house in Blackrock [Co Dublin].
They failed to mention that what they describe the house as ‘not overlooked; in front is the pitch and putt grounds of the St John of God’s Hospital’. This area is ear marked for a future Halting Site for Traveller Accomodation. Surely instead of stoking another bubble they could have taken a quick look at the council development plan to show what your millions will actually buy…

Hmm.

Should they have mentioned the halting site?

YOU decide.

Imagine you’ve just woken up and Bobby is having a shower and everything was a DREAM.

Now read on.

The Irish Times reports that  No. 1, Sorrento House in Dalkey is on the market for €12million, making it Dublin’s most expensive house – again.

In an Irish Times video, property editor Madeleine Lyons takes  drooling readers interested bidders on a tour of the house.

“Millionaire entrepreneur Terry Coleman famously outbid Lochlann Quinn, then chairman of AIB, to secure Sorrento House for £5.9 (€7.5) million in 1998. It was the highest price ever paid at auction for a Dublin property.”

“After a lengthy planning process, Coleman extended the dilapidated four-storey building to double its original size at an estimated cost of about €13 million, adding a summer house and guest accommodation.”

“In 2006, the protected six-bed Victorian, tucked neatly between Bulloch Harbour and Killiney’s Vico Road, was placed on the market with a hefty €30 million price tag. No takers.”
