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 Waterford with an asking price of exactly €350,000 – from a unique property in Kill to a home that needs completing in Fenor.
If you’re looking to undertake an interiors project, Mountain View Farm could be a good option. Located on 4.4 acres along the Copper Coast, Mountain View Farm comprises a renovated thatch cottage and an adjoining new build property of 5,162 sq ft. The former is completed and features a bright and contemporary interior, while the latter has been finished to roof level.
Most windows are installed in the new build, which is designed to be a four-bed property. There is also a selection of outbuildings on the site, which offer a variety of uses, subject to planning permission. Fenor village is a 20-minute walk away, while Tramore town is a 10-minute drive away.
Located on a site of one acre with views of the Comeragh Mountains to the front, this five-bed dormer bungalow is surrounded by tranquility. The property has a spacious and light-filled layout of 2,895 sq ft and enjoys a homely feel throughout thanks to features including a fitted stove, red brick detailing and wood finishes.
The sunroom, which extends from the open-plan kitchen and dining room, overlooks the beautiful lawn and decking area and is the perfect spot to unwind. There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor and three on the first floor, including the master bedroom which spans the width of the house. The village of Kilmeanden is a 10-minute drive away, while Waterford city can be reached in 25 minutes.
Measuring 2,200 sq ft, this five-bed detached property offers more than meets the eye. The house features an unassuming exterior, but inside the design and finishes are quite unique. The main living room enjoys a cosy and private feel, with wood-panelled ceilings, an arched window and a hand-built feature stone wall and fireplace, plus a mezzanine floor.
There’s another living room and sitting room on the ground floor, as well as the country-style kitchen and dining room with solid pitch pine units, solid marble counter tops and feature stone detailing. The house is located on 0.3 acres, which include a large decking area, a lawn and paved patios.
Located a 10-minute drive (or 30-minute walk) from Waterford city centre, Dun an Oir enjoys both the peace and quiet that comes with countryside living while also being within easy access of everyday amenities. A four-bed detached bungalow, the property sits on an elevated site of 0.9 acres of mature gardens, and enjoys views towards the River Suir.
Inside, the living areas and bedrooms are spacious and ideal for family living, while a sunroom overlooks the surrounding garden. Outside, there are two patio areas, a lawned garden, flower beds, stone wall boundaries and a number of outbuildings. Dun an Oir comes to the market in pleasant condition, although its new owners may want to incorporate some contemporary finishes.
