Fix it: A 1950’s house in need of work, in Glasnevin, D11

What is it? Home styles changed in the 1950s as builders tried to make their homes look a bit more modern. They added some new flourishes, like striking white plaster between the red bricks and sometimes porthole windows. White plaster didn’t last long as a style, so it’s always a hallmark of homes built in the 1950s and early 1960s. You can see it here at 152 Glasnevin Avenue, in the gate piers and around the front door. Tell me more about the place… This is an executor (the estate took place). No 152 has served as the family home for decades. But now it needs a new family to bring it into the 21st century. A hall, two large reception rooms, a kitchen, three bedrooms, a bathroom, a toilet and a garage.

The bad news?
Absolutely everything must be done. Rewiring, reinstallation, new windows, new kitchen, new bathrooms. For the 21st century kitchen/dining/living area you need a large rear extension.

And the good news?
Though it’s a triple room, the dimensions are large — 1,421 square feet as it stands, and closer to a modern quad room. In addition there is a huge front and back garden (1950’s home buyers expected to grow their own veg) and a garage to the side as an option for further expansions at ground level and above going into the future. Original fireplaces and joinery all intact and mid-century is very trendy.

How much should I buy?
The asking price is 500,000 euros.

And to fix it?
The above to a high standard is €150,000.

What will I end up with?
A Glasnevin home likely to be worth over €700,000.
