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 Wexford with an asking price of exactly €395,000 – from a four-bed on the grounds of a resort to a three-bed within walking distance of the beach.
Located within the grounds of Seafield Hotel & Spa Resort, this four-bed home is a slice of paradise. It’s tucked away in a quiet enclave of homes which are situated within the resort’s 160 acres of parkland and nature trails, while the beach is just a 20-minute walk away.
The interior is both modern and homely, with the south-west facing kitchen and dining area acting as the heart of the home. There are two reception rooms on the ground floor, as well as access to a garage and a timber deck. All four bedrooms are on the first floor, with an en suite bathroom extending from the master bedroom.
With spacious living areas and large outdoor seating areas, this three-bed home is made for entertaining in all weathers. It benefits from a south-west orientation, allowing for long-lasting sun on the first floor wrap-around decking area.
The interior is light-filled and modern, with vaulted ceilings, an open plan kitchen, dining and living space and solid wood flooring throughout. The attic is fully plumbed and floored, allowing for an extra 538 sq ft of living space with views of Our Lady’s Island Lake.
Located on an elevated site of 0.5 acres, Hampton Lodge is perfectly positioned to enjoy panoramic views towards the sea and the surrounding Wexford countryside. The four-bed property is a 10-minute walk from Blackwater village, and a 10-minute drive from the beach.
The interior, which spans 1,969 sq ft, is warm and welcoming throughout, with features including exposed brick walls, polished porcelain tiles and walnut flooring. The open-plan kitchen, living and dining area is particularly impressive, with vaulted ceilings, ample storage space and a three-seater island with a solid oak worktop.
With Bing Bay Beach less than a 10-minute walk away and Rosslare village within a five-minute drive, Avondale boasts a highly convenient location. The three-bed home sits on a site of just over half an acre, including a south-facing rear garden and a spacious patio.
Inside, the interior of the bungalow has a neutral design, making it easy for its new owners to put their own stamp on it. The accommodation comprises three reception rooms, an open-plan kitchen and dining room, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. There’s also a detached outbuilding to the side, which could easily be converted into a home office.
