SANDYMOUNT IN SOUTH Dublin has been revealed as the most expensive place to buy a home on the DART line.

A report by property website Daft.ie showed how the average price of a house in that particular suburb was €788,000 beating competition from Dalkey and Sydney Parade which both came in at €716,000.

Sandycove & Glasthule completed the top four setting you back €705,000.

Meanwhile, on the Luas, homes close to Cowper on the green line command the highest averages asking prices standing at €679,000. Those living in the city centre near the Spencer Dock stop are paying an average of €663,000.

Three bed semi

The figures shown are average asking prices for three bed semi-detached properties. The sample of nearly 7,000 homes comes from the period between January and November 2016.

Martin Clancy from Daft.ie said: “Convenience and affordability are two key concerns for pretty much everyone who lives and works in Dublin. This map gives a great overview of property prices across the capital and is a fantastic visual reference for anyone who is considering buying or selling close to the Luas or DART.”

Ronan Lyons, economist and author of the Daft report, said: “The figures in this infographic highlight the value of rail infrastructure, with prices for properties closer to stations above those for comparable properties elsewhere.

For policymakers, the fundamental question remains how best to link upswing in properties, like those seen around the cross-city Luas, and the money invested in rail. A good property tax system can make that connection.
