GETTING TO GRIPS with a fast-changing property market is tricky, but we’re here to make things simpler.
Each week, we’ll handpick a number of 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 around Co Donegal with an asking price of exactly €325,000 – from a three-bed by the coast to a family home close to Donegal town.
With a lemon yellow exterior, this five-bed property is certain to turn heads. Built in 2000, the detached home comes to the market in great condition, with features including oak flooring, a solid oak kitchen and a redbrick fireplace with a cast iron stove.
The accommodation measures 4,500 sq ft and comprises three reception rooms, five bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, two standalone bathrooms and an open-plan kitchen and dining area. It’s positioned on a neat site with landscaped gardens, a winding driveway and a detached lofted garage.
One of five houses in a private cul-de-sac, 1 The Port is literally a stone’s throw from the Donegal coast. No 1 is a semi-detached property with three bedrooms and basement, which is sure to come in handy for boat storage, with Port Pier only 20m away.
The property is designed to soak up the beautiful ocean views, particularly from the sitting and dining room, which features patio doors that open to a balcony. For cold winters, there’s underfloor heating throughout the property, as well as an open fire in the living room. While residents will have an almost private beach on their doorstep, the larger beach in Inver village is just a five-minute drive away.
Built in 2006, this three-bed property comes to the market in turn-key condition. It’s positioned to enjoy beautiful views of Donegal Bay, with a raised decking area to the rear for dining al fresco. To the front, the garden is landscaped and features various shrubs and flowers, as well as a large gravel parking area.
Inside, the accommodation is bright and spacious and includes a classic white kitchen with granite worktops, solid oak flooring and a solid fuel stove with a red brick surround. Mountcharles village is a five-minute drive away, while Donegal town can be reached in 10 minutes.
Overlooking Fintra Bay, Serieannes View is a four-bedroom property which includes a two-bedroom annexe with its own kitchen. In the main part of the house, the kitchen features plenty of storage space and room for a dining table to seat at least six. There’s also a spacious living room with double doors which lead to the hallway, plus a seating area in front of a picture window with views of the bay.
There are landscaped gardens to the front and rear of the property, with a paved parking area to the front. In an ideal location, Serieannes View is just a five-minute drive from Killybegs Harbour, while Fintra Beach is 10 minutes away.
