3 homes in Wicklow under €200,000 that are ready to move into

If you don’t fancy the idea of taking on a project, these three Wicklow homes for under €200,000 are in great condition, allowing any new buyer to move in straight away. 

If you’re in the market for a new home, it can be tempting to linger over the run-down properties that come with equally marked-down price tags.

Although there are undoubtedly some great bargains to be had, this can also be a dangerous route, with repairs and renovations often adding up to more than was originally expected. What you thought was a great deal can turn out to be an expensive decision.

This is why a ready to move in home is the best option for many, however this doesn’t mean you have to pay huge sums. Here are three homes in Wicklow that are ready to move into, all for under €200,000.

18 Saint Michael’s Terrace, Arklow, €190,000

homes in Wicklow under €200,000

This end-of-terrace townhouse near the centre of Arklow has three bedrooms, a well-sized living area, and a kitchen with breakfast room.

A large garden to the side and rear with a decked area, a shed, and a garden room that could serve a number of uses, such as a home office or gym.

The house is just a short walk from the harbour, south beach and golf links in Arklow, as well as a 50-minute drive to Wexford town.

Gold Finch Cottage, The Green, Rathnew, €190,000

homes in Wicklow under €200,000

This lovely one-bed cottage has recently been modernised, and feels clean and bright throughout, while details like a cast iron fireplace have been retained.

Outside, there is a storage shed and laundry room that have the potential to be put to other uses, such as a home office. Less than 10 minutes’ drive to the centre of Wicklow town and an hour from Dublin, this home is also well-located.

Old Post Office, Main Street, Shillelagh, €170,000

homes in Wicklow under €200,000

This home on the main street of Shillelagh is a former Post Office, and as a result has plenty of character. With an impressive five bedrooms, it would make a unique family home.

Inside, the home is basic, but in good condition, giving any new owner the chance to put their own stamp on the property.

Just 3 kilometres from the 18 hole Coollattin Golf Course, and five kilometres from the mature Oak Woods at Tomnafinogue, there is plenty to do in the area, while Gorey is a 24 minutes’ drive away, and Wexford town is around an hour’s drive.
