10-foot-wide shed sells for $269,100.....

........IN DUBLIN

Startling price for tiny structure highlights Ireland's real estate boom

Updated: 9:12 a.m. ET Sept. 19, 2005

DUBLIN, Ireland - A former tool shed built to fill a gap in the middle of a row of Victorian houses in what was once Dublin’s poorest district has found a buyer at a startling price of $269,100 (220,000 euros).

At 10 feet wide and with a floor space of 280 square feet the building was last sold for 500 Irish pounds ($777) in the 1970s.

The red-brick house has no garden and no ground floor windows.

The realtor selling the property said on Monday a sale had been agreed but declined to comment further.

The price tag raised eyebrows even in Ireland where the cost of homes has tripled between 1997 and 2004.

Yeah it's madness right enough. I thought the property boom in Dublin was finally tailing off but seemingly not!

that's insane

Every time I went to Ireland (all in the 90's) the economy was still doing poorly. I am thrilled that it's doing well now, I just hope it doesn't change the charm of that place forever.
