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 Louth with an asking price of exactly €550,000 – from a hillside property in Monasterboice to a five-bed in Carlingford.
Set into the side of a hill at 560 ft above sea level, this four-bed property boasts beautiful views over the Boyne Valley and the surrounding countryside. The living room and the conservatory are on the first floor and feature floor-to-ceiling windows along one side to make the most of the views. It’s located on 1.85 acres of grounds, comprising a paddock area, lawns, an allotment and a west-facing patio.
Surrounded by an original medieval stone wall and with Slieve Foy as its backdrop, Waterville House is an instantly appealing property. The accommodation is light-filled and spacious, with views of Carlingford Lough from the living room and master bedroom. The property boasts four reception rooms and five bedrooms, as well as two floored attic spaces, bringing the total square footage to 3,235 sq ft.
Approached via a winding driveway, this five-bed property boasts grounds of 0.78 acres and an interior of 3,750 sq ft. It includes numerous high quality features, such as solid oak and walnut flooring, solid oak units and granite worktops. The site on which it sits is elevated, thus allowing views of Carlingford Lough, Mourne Mountains and Slieve Foye.
