**Pre '63 Investment Opportunity in Prime Location**

We are delighted to present to the Open Market, 48B Botanic Avenue, Drumcondra, Dublin 9. This is an exceptional Detached Pre '63 Investment Property with rear access to a gated Car Park.

The subject property is situated in the heart of Drumcondra Village . Due to the superb location, this property provides investors a rare opportunity to secure a significant building in a prime central location. Currently sub-divided into 12 units with parking available for a configuration of up to c. 7 cars.

The subject property has a pre-63 declaration for 7 units but has been in the current condition prior to 1990 when the current owners purchased the property. In our opinion the property would lend itself to 9 self contained units and the would include 3 double bedroom studios and 6 x 1 bedroom apartments (subject to planning permission).

The refurbishment of this requires a complete upgrade and our calculations are based on the following using the residual method of calculation. We calculated that the open market rental value is €150,600 and with an 8% yield, this values the property at €1,882,500. Conclusion, it is the professional opinion of the selling agent that the location of this property justifies a yield of 8% as a finished product. This allows a refurbishment budget of €532,500.

Now to put a different spin, this subject property could operate as a communal living space dwelling as well. This would allow you to carve 10 living bedroom suites and a separate caretaker one bedroom apartment. Due to the fantastic location demand for this short term living accommodation would produce €70/€100 a night producing an income of €254,000 per annum.

The location of this property cannot be overstated; facing on to Griffith Park and situated in the heart of Drumcondra Village. This address is one of the most sought after in Dublin and is located on the primary bus route to Dublin Airport.

For Sale by Online Auction unless sold prior.

Building Energy Rating (BERs)

Building Energy Ratings (BERs) give information on how to make your property more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All properties bought, sold or rented require an BER. BERs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your property could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All properties are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
