Fix it up: A larger than average terrace in Stoneybatter D7
What is it?
A run-down period terrace with permission and architect plans for a two storey extension. It's at 55 Manor Street in Stoneybatter, Dublin 7.
Tell me more about the place...
A hall, two reception rooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, three bedrooms and a surprisingly big attic room. All on StoneyB's main drag.
The good news?
With so much demand from citycentric trendies for Stoneybatter, a step up the rung from the smaller terrace will be embraced by hipsters and creatives who are feeling squeezed. Many of the period features are still here like the chimney pieces and the rear garden is a whopping 76 ft and facing into the evening sun. Part-ee!
And the bad news?
Is that beauty board or pine panelling? No one has really looked under the bonnet properly and a good survey will establish what needs doing. It will at least need reconfiguration, rewiring, replumbing, new kitchen, new bathroom and the extension provided.
How much to buy it?
The agents are asking €435,000.
And to fix it up?
With no hidden issues and the a two-storey extension, you're looking at around €200,000.
What will I end up with?
A likely spend of around €635,000 for a big four family home in a very central and trendy Dublin village with plenty of great eateries and pubs.
