Pretty much everything has to be done to this three-bedroomed bungalow – but the location will drive interest, nonetheless.
Size: 92 sq m (990 sq ft)
No 29 Avondale is the last house in the turning circle top to Avondale Park, off Ballintemple’s Churchyard Lane, and dates to the mid-1900s.
It’s semi-detached, has just shy of 1,000 sq ft right now, and is almost certain to be extended when its buyers bring in the builders.
There’s loads of side garden to be built on, but a lot will come down to clever design as there’s practically no back garden, just a yard, as an earlier extension’s out the back, so it will be a case of balancing inside and outside space, and maximising light.
Agent Tim Sullivan guides this do-er upper at €265,000, and recently sold the “other half”, No 28 at €275,000.
That next door house was in much better condition but was smaller and on a smaller site too.
No 29 has two reception rooms, plus kitchen/dining/living room, three small bedrooms, main bathroom and family bathroom, plus attached garage/car port. There’s an indicative G BER.
VERDICT: Could be made very special.
