Under €1 million

Dublin, central Dublin – €950,000

For just under the €1 million mark you’re able to get your hands on this home in the middle of Dublin. The large property on Harcourt Terrace has been divided into three apartments since the early 1980s.

The three apartments are held under a 500-year lease from 1983. A mitigating factor in purchasing this property is the service charge that applies on each of the apartments.

This home is worth considering for anyone looking to enter the market at the high end with location as a priority. As an investment property, rental income would be almost guaranteed.
