Then, three house types were offered the Rockall, the Valentia and the Finistere and the ground-breaking selling point was the ensuite master bedroom.
Twenty-five years later the country's awash with ensuites, but the location on the Rochestown Road is still a banker.
Which is why Billy Casey of Casey and Kingston expects Barlogue in Rochestown Rise to sell for a sum in excess of €450,000.
Now if you were a soignee, thirty-something couple with a penchant for things 70s, you could go a bundle on this house.
Shag carpet, G-plan furniture, raised baths, drinks cabinets, fondue sets, parana pine ceilings and your retro-modern home would be so cool it would be Ice Storm. For those with an eye to the nitty gritty, Barlogue offers over 2,000 sq ft of space in a cul-de-sac setting with just 11 other houses.
There are three reception rooms, a conservatory, kitchen and four bedrooms, with of course, the master ensuite.
The main entrance is through an enclosed, paved terrace, a typical flourish, and Barlogue comes with two garages.
Its large, mature site should also be a major attraction.
