‘A Blank Canvas’



“A blank canvas is presented to the market and the opportunity to put your own stamp on this canvas is at hand…

…set in the famous South Lotts area of Ringsend which once housed dockers, millers, bakers, gas workers, butchers and glass bottle makers…

…now it is home to software engineers, computer scientists and social media gurus as well as the local community and it retains its ambience and a sense that people still count. A true community feel…”

30 Square metres.

Outside loo.

Social media gurus.

This is the best property bubble ever!

6 South Dock Street, Ringsend, Dublin 4 (Daft)

      I grew up in a tenement on Dorset St in Dublin in the 1960’s, we shared a cold water tap with other tenants in the building and an outside toilet. We lived there until 1969…happy days.

    “Large derelict shed” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it as “blank canvas”.

    Are they hoping a developer will buy this and the adjoining houses, knock them down, and build offices/apartments?

    Those walls are beyond repair. You’re buying a plot. The whole thing would need to be torn down and rebuilt from scratch.

    I walk by this house every day. Items also not included;

    1. Massive (noisy, dusty) development currently underway 20 metres up the road at ‘Boland’s Quay’
    2. The building directly behind is currently being dismantled for reconstruction into a Tech Hot-desk such-n-such

    But otherwise I mean, total bargain!

      Actually, both of those items are positives for the property from a rental potential and a gentrification/urban improvement perspective.

    I think Samuel Beckett’s uncle built those cottages. Some in the area have joined two together to create a liveable space. I lived in the area for years and really liked it but got priced out eventually.

    Am I missing the kitchen and the shower?
    I feel bad for the poor lad who called it home before it was for sale.

          It’s on the north side of the city. North of the River Liffey. There is no “honourary” in physical geography.

    true story, bought a similar house around the corner from there in 2012 (in better shape, though some updating was needed but same layout) for less than half they are looking for….

    ah what’s wrong with ye? it wasn’t too long ago you’d raise a family of ten in one of those houses.

            You should assume that at least 80% of what I post here is pure crap, Cian. I do adore your earnest desire for factually accurate content.

    Eh I am looking at the floor plan and it seems in order to access the latrine one must exit the building and go around the rear…..

        Pah! software engineers, computer scientists and social media gurus don’t cook their own meals – it’s all take-aways (or eating in the company subsidised canteens)

    The silence about this from the Jane Ruffino startup tech crowd is deafening.

    For every little tech twerp on his/her SoloWheel or Razor Luz trundling over to Fresh in Grand Canal Dock to buy avocados after a day’s work processing Adwords invoices for Slovenia or not moderating FB content there’s a Ringsend family homeless.
