Capital chance to get in at the ground level

BUYING 6 Church Street East, in Dublin's East Wall, may be just the opportunity to get in, literally, at ground level in an area set for soaring changes.

The terraced older-style property, fully done up, is close to the Point Depot and East Link Bridge - and this is where entrepreneur and businessman Harry Crosbie has plans to build Point Village, complete with 100-metre high apartment tower to mirror U2’s twisting tower across the Liffey.

The area is on the cusp of enormous changes: already, the IFSC has come down to meet it, and the troubled old Sherriff Street reputation behind is being rehabilitated.

No 6 Church Street was renovated internally by its vendor as a smart investment and labour of enjoyment, and he enthuses about the neighbours while the selling agent Rosanne De Vere-Hunt of Gunnes Residential says the area is strongly appreciating, at 6-8% pa, with loads of uplift yet to come.

She guides no 6, with three bedrooms, at €395,000, and says it is likely to tip over the €400,000 mark.

It is close to a Luas link, and there's a straight run back along the quays to the city centre, while the future city is coming down to the docklands in any case.

A new owner might want to smarten up the outside, not enhanced at present by its aluminum window and door, but inside is a smart, new, clean and comfortable space for home or investment.

There's a decked back yard, gas heating, recessed spotlighting and new kitchen in a rear extension.

There's about 1,100 sq ft of space, off-street car parking, and rooms include entrance hall, living room, sitting room/dining room, kitchen, bathroom and utility, with three first floor double bedrooms and a shower room. Many original features internally have been kept, and new floors are in oregon pine.
