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 Waterford with an asking price of exactly €495,000 – from a six-bed in Dungarvan to a house with history in Lismore.
Measuring approx 7,000 sq ft, Nead Cucu is a highly impressive architecturally designed residence. The six-bed property is surrounded by 4.57 acres of agricultural land, and enjoys beautiful views of the surrounding countryside from its elevated position.
The interior is bright and airy, with features including semi-solid timber flooring, fitted stoves and a contemporary kitchen. On the first floor, there’s a large gallery landing which acts as another living area and opens onto a spacious balcony.
Tucked away in a quiet cul de sac, 20 Grange Cove is a four-bed detached house of 1,894 sq ft. The interior is in good shape, but is in need of modernisation in some parts. The ground floor accommodation comprises a sitting room and adjoining sunroom, a living room, a TV room, a kitchen/diner, a utility room and a guest bathroom.
On the first floor, there are four bedrooms, one en suite bathroom and the family bathroom. The south-facing rear garden is no doubt a selling point for this property, with a neat lawn and patio area here.
Located less than a 15-minute walk from Clonea Beach and opposite the Waterford Greenway, this four-bed property is ideal for anyone who loves the outdoors. The house is surrounded by stunning manicured gardens, with a private driveway, mature trees and picture-perfect hedging.
There are four reception rooms on the ground floor, including a sun lounge, while the master bedroom and its en suite bathroom are on the first floor. Some elements of the property are in need of updating, but it has the layout and aspect of an impressive family home in the Waterford countryside.
Situated just off East Main St in the heritage town of Lismore, Co Waterford, The Villa is filled with history. Much of Lismore, including The Villa (built in 1830), was once part of the Irish estate lands of the Duke of Devonshire. Lismore Castle, just ten minutes away, is still the private home of the Duke of Devonshire today.
Wood features heavily throughout the four-bed property, and this is made evident from the moment you step inside the front door. The entrance porch is made of solid mahogany, with wooden floors, panelling to the walls and a wooden staircase in the hallway. Outside, there’s a sheltered seating area which is perfect for al fresco dining, three storage sheds and a solid oak garage.
