GETTING TO GRIPS with a fast-changing property market is tricky, but we’re here to make things simpler.
Each week, we’ll handpick four homes within a similar budget, to give you a snapshot of the property landscape at a particular price point.
This week, we’re looking at properties in Co Donegal with an asking price of exactly €300,000 – from a Victorian property in Ramelton to a four-bed in Killybegs.
A five-bed property, Teach Muiris was built in the early 2000s but boasts the character and charm of a much older house. Located on an elevated site, the house overlooks Gweebarra Bay and the surrounding countryside. The interior is homely and inviting, with feature brick walls, fireplaces and ceiling beams throughout the ground floor.
In the kitchen, there’s a traditional range cooker, tiled floors and sliding doors to the rear garden, while a conservatory provides the perfect space to sit and enjoy the views. Teach Muiris sits on 1.25 acres, with the property and landscaped gardens accounting for 50% of the plot, leaving room to build another property, subject to planning permission.
With one of Ireland’s most famous fishing ports just a 15-minute walk away, 13 Roseville Heights is a four-bed property in an idyllic location. The Blue Flag Fintra Beach is a five-minute drive away, while there is a selection of schools, sports clubs, shops and restaurants within walking distance.
The lemon yellow home is one of 12 individually designed homes in the Roseville development and sits at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. It measures 1,950 sq ft and includes a large sitting room with a bay window, a kitchen, a utility room and a separate dining room. There’s also a detached garage of 168 sq ft, while the paved patio area in the rear garden is surrounded by beautiful hedging.
Located in the heart of heritage town Ramelton, this three-bed terraced property offers more than meets the eye. The Victorian residence has been renovated by its present owners to preserve its character and charm, while making it suitable for modern living. Many of its original features have been preserved, including sash windows and exposed red brick.
The ground floor accommodation briefly comprises a warm and welcoming lounge, with an archway which leads to the kitchen and dining room. The kitchen units are solid timber, while a Rayburn cooker in the dining area is surrounded by red brick and features an overhanging clothes drying line. There’s another large sitting room on the first floor, with an ornate mahogany fireplace here.
Located a 20-minute walk from the Blue Flag Killahoey Beach, this four-bed property boasts beautiful countryside views from every angle. The accommodation spans 2,300 sq ft and features large living areas, including a sun lounge and open-plan kitchen and dining room. To the front of the property, the living room enjoys views over Killahoey Strand.
Features throughout include porcelain tiled floors, solid timber floors and a feature centre island in the kitchen. The property boasts a south-facing rear garden with a large lawn, patio and decking area, while there’s also a large garage to the side with an adjoining car port.
