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 Wicklow with an asking price of exactly €375,000 – from a two-bed in Delgany to a stone-built cottage by a river in Aughrim.
A four-bed property, 16 Rossana Close is an ideal family home. There are two primary schools within a five-minute drive, with further options in the nearby village of Rathnew. Wicklow town is a 15-minute drive away, while the M50 can be reached via the M11 in 25 minutes.
No 16 comes to the market in turn-key condition, with a spacious living room, open-plan kitchen and dining room, and a study on the ground floor. Double doors open from the dining area to the rear garden, where there’s a patio and lawn. There are three double bedrooms and one single bedroom on the first floor, as well as two en suite bathrooms and a family bathroom.
A bright and spacious two-bed property with a half red brick, half render exterior, 6 Willow Park comes to the market in turn-key condition. Accommodation comprises a light-filled living room, a kitchen and dining area, a downstairs bathroom, two double bedrooms and two en suite bathrooms.

Located along the banks of the River Aughrim, An Gabha Dubh is a stone-built cottage on three acres of gardens and natural woodland.

The grounds of the cottage are also regularly visited by a variety of local wildlife, including otters and deer.
The property dates back to the 17th century and features a character-filled interior, although its new owners may want to carry out some updates. It measures 1,291 sq ft over two stories and includes two living rooms, three bedrooms and a study with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
Located a 15-minute walk from Wicklow town and all of its amenities, 3 Springfield is a four-bed family home with a practical ground floor layout. Double doors join the large living room with the spacious kitchen and dining area, where another set of doors leads to the bright sunroom extension.
