    What’s the problem? A building with 4 apartments in it on Waterloo Road for €1.45 million?
    Granted it’s not going to be me who buys it, but it’s Ballsbridge and an investment property.

    Am I missing something to be outraged about?

      Yep, you’re missing the fact that they screwed up in the headline. It states that it’s a studio apartment. ;-D

        In fairness, that’d be a massive 1-bed of 299 Sq.Mtrs…. might be hard to heat in winter but you could always play football, tennis or whatever to warm up….

    Looks like a simple mistake as everything in the description says it’s the entire 299 sqm property with a number of apartments for sale and not just one studio. Panic ye not.

    They’ve just mis-categorised it, it is, in fact, an entire building with 4 apartments.

    (you can never have too many commas in the morning)

    The IT are at it again.

    Pump-priming is back in fashion.

    Anyway, it will be interesting to see how the proposed Mortgage Directive from the EU deals with the property sector.

    Classic read the byline, which admittedly is an error, and not the description, which is that it’s four 2-bed apartments.

    Some friends of mine lived in a bedsit (nowadays a ‘studio’) on Waterloo road around- 1994,’95. Perhaps in that very building. Rent was maybe £60.00 quid a week. I thought that was expensive! My bedsit/studio on Mountjoy Square was £35.00 weekly. Thank God those days are gone….

    ye its just the discription that is incorrect. Its converted to 4 2 bed apt’s , which in fairness, at 1400 a month rent each – the house is deffo overall worth the figure its going for. Maybe they need a new estate agent though.

    Houses are going to jump another 50% within a year.


    Only kidding. I can’t see them going much higher. Lending is tight, cash buyers are mostly finished buying all the cheaper deals with Daddies money.

      I have heard (yes, yes, anecdotal, I know) that people are starting to stop and think. Y’know, actually questioning mental prices for houses. And I know a fair few houses on my street that have been ‘for sale’ for the last month and a half. Pretty sure that wouldn’t have been the case even four months ago.
