Camelot, the financial godsend to property owners

Camelot Property Management, the financial godsend to property owners, was brought in to scare off vandals and highlight any further structural damage to the property.

 

The Independent reports:

Former property of Sean Dunne on sale for €2.25m

Camelot Property Management, the financial godsend to property owners, was brought in to scare off vandals and highlight any further structural damage to the property.

Their guardians currently live in the mansion that was originally bought by Sean Dunne for €1.4m in 1997, together with its substantial 131 acres.

About 35 minutes drive from Dublin’s city centre, this sprawling estate is located above the South Dublin Council 120m line set by the local authority to prevent development in the Dublin mountains.

Estate agents Colliers expect that the 18th century building “will require between €400,000 and €500,000 to make it habitable” and approximately €1m to turn the property into “something amazing”, naturally dependent on individual tastes and standards desired for fit out.

As is reflected in the video footage, the listed property was allowed to fall into a less than pleasing condition, having suffered some vandalism and weather damage before NAMA/Camelot moved in.

However, all the windows have been replaced following a fire that broke out in a downstairs front room. And, on a positive note, the ‘canvas’ that prospective buyers can work from is effectively blank.

Three central bays form the original structure of the two storey residence, believed to be built between the early and mid 18th century.

Perhaps 100 years later, two bay extensions on either side were added to create the manor as it stands today.

Three reception rooms, a very large kitchen and store rooms fill the ground floor. Five bedrooms on the first floor make up the combined 3,500 sq ft that the house stretches to.
