Three fixer-upper houses to buy in Dublin for under €250K

Three fixer-upper houses to buy in Dublin for under €250K

Fancy a little (or big) renovation project? Dublin is dotted with dozens of properties in need of some TLC. Whether you love spending your weekends in homeware shops, or you consider yourself a DIY guru, see if these fixer-upper houses tickle your fancy. Some of the rooms need a complete renovation; while others just call for a quick lick of paint. Which one would you like to work your magic on?

271 Mourne Road, Drimnagh, Dublin 12 – €199,000

This spacious two-bedroom home at 271 Mourne Road oozes potential. It has been stripped back to basics and needs everything from floors to cabinets installed. While that might seem daunting, it’s an exciting opportunity to fulfil your interior design dreams. Get the oak flooring you always wanted; the clean-lined kitchen with an ash wood finish. The property consists of two double bedrooms, kitchen, family room, and a family bathroom. What’s more, the spacious garden to the rear of the property is not overlooked. Location-wise, this terraced home is close to all amenities. A pub, beauty salon, food shops and a pharmacy are just a stone’s throw away. If you need to go further afield, Mourne Road is within walking distance of Drimnagh Luas stop and the 122 Dublin Bus stop.

85 Ringsend Park, Ringsend, Dublin 4 – €250,000

Craddock Estates Ltd describes 85 Ringsend Park as an ideal starter home or investment property. With just one bedroom, it wouldn’t work as a family home, but it would be ideal for an individual or couple stepping onto the property ladder for the first time. The kitchen is functional with fitted storage units and large appliances; beyond that though, the house is a blank canvas ready to be worked on. The property is situated in a sought-after part of Dublin; with views of the River Liffey to one side and sports facilities to the other. Dublin City Centre is within walking distance and Dublin Bus routes 1 and 151 service the area.

49 Killala Road, Cabra, Dublin 7 – €250,000

Located within walking distance of the city centre, 49 Killala Road is ideal for anyone who wants a renovation project close to town. With two double bedrooms, a living room, parlour room and kitchen, the house could make a lovely family home. Positioned mid-terrace and overlooking a green, the property features gas-fired central heating and single-glazed windows. While off-street parking is available, the new cross-city Luas line is just a short walk away. Dublin Bus route 122 also services the area. The property is in relatively good condition, though it is in need of modernisation. Double-glazed windows could boost the BER from its current rating of E2; while the kitchen could be improved with additional storage.
