Jonathan Fenn, Director at BidX1, commented:
“We’re kicking-off our two-day auction with the residential catalogue which includes a selection of stunning family homes in prime locations. A beautiful four bedroom Victorian house on Palmerston Road in Dublin 6 are among the highlights. Glashnacree House in Sneem, Co. Kerry – an incredible Victorian coastal country house complete with a 40 ft swimming pool, stables, tennis courts and two guest houses – is also going under the hammer.”
“Investors will have an impressive selection of residential portfolios and commercial investments with high income streams to consider – a ground floor restaurant and offices at The Green in Malahide and a portfolio of 15 apartments on Gardiner Street generating €139,600 per annum are among the highlights.”
“In total, there are 15 multi-family residential lots going under the hammer which will bring over 100 individual units to the market. With more than half of these units currently vacant, it’s a significant injection of stock into the supply-starved housing market. A prime residential development site at Marlborough Road in Dublin 7 with potential to develop 15 units should also generate plenty of interest.”
Glashnacree House in Sneem, a stunning six bedroom Victorian Country House, provides a more rural retreat. Situated on 20 acres, the property comes with two guest cottages, a 40 ft swimming pool, stables and tennis courts and is reserved at €1,395,000 - €1,405,000. 69 Palmerston Road in Dublin 6, a semi-detached four bedroom Victorian house, will satisfy those looking for a period property in the capital.

Thirteen of the units are tenanted with a total annual rent roll of €139,600.
