      Or rain even.

      “It also has the benefit of both mains water & electricity, ” – according to the blurb.

    Look it I don’t have time to read this ad just take my money for the gaff I am too busy partying due to cheap oil!

      No she’s still there. That’s how it maintains its BER certification. She’s bedridden so you have to share.

    What, no BER rating?
    It could be kind of cute if you put a decent roof on it and splayed the window openings, for half the price, obv.

    Glad I bought my house in Dublin 6 in 2011 with cash I got from the sale of my house in Dublin 8 in 2008.

    On a perfectly serious note, there is nothing wrong with a corrugated roof. They last a very long time, they don’t catch on fire, and with decent insulation (something I realize the average Irish person sneers at) they are no more noisy in the rain than the flat roof over the extension on this house. But I suppose it defies tradition.

      Having lived under them in NZ and Oz (where they’re the norm for many houses and apartment buildings) I’d agree with all that except about the noise when it rains. Dear lord, it sometimes felt like we were being shelled…but in a nice way, I loved lying in bed listening to the rain on the roof. Very cosy.

        Yes, very common on houses in OZ – some of them fancy houses. I still associate them with barns.
        My roof is colourbond (pre-painted steel sheets) – yes, a lot noisier when it rains than you would like.

          I hear Neil Peart is retiring and moving to Dundrum…

          …I’ll just head to the cloakroom, shall I?

    If someone wishes to buy it then they will make an offer. Nobody is being forced to purchase this property so I do not see why anyone should highlight the advertisement on Broadsheet.

    What is the justification?

      Basic human housing of 2 rooms should not cost over three times the average salary. It’s 24 square metres. €5,000 a square metre. This is Rush, as the ad says – a rural location, not the floor of the stock exchange. But maybe, just maybe there’s someone out there who has dreams of owning their own…and so it goes.
