It just goes to show you the value of property around here…
Having been badly damaged by a fire in October 2015, Dunaree House in The Burnaby has just sold at auction for €1,150,000.
The bidding started at €800,000, and 21 bids later, hit that magical number as it went under the hammer at HJ Byrne in Bray last Wednesday.
Which may explain why auctioneer John Doyle began the bidding last week with three simple words – ‘Pedigree, potential, position’. The six-bedroom house was described at the auction as a “suburban villa” and being “an outstanding example of the domestic revival style in the Burnaby estate”. The property is currently zoned for two houses.
The auctioneers also said Dunaree House – which boasts an asymmetric floor plan, large expanses of roof with flat terracotta tiles, gables also tiled upwards from 1st floor level, dormers, mullioned and transom framed windows – was well screened from both its neighbours and the tree-lined St Vincent Road.
Which is just a nice way of saying the garden is really over-grown, right?
