If you want your own front door but don't require much more room than a typical apartment, once of these redbrick terraced houses for sale in Dublin, Cork, Louth and Limerick could make for a great investment.
If you're looking to buy your first home but want something that is going to withstand the test of time and make for a good long-term investment, these redbrick terraced houses for sale might be it.
Typically located in more urban areas and within shouting distance of local amenities and transport links, they will always be in demand and make for a great starting project to step onto the property ladder with.
27 Friar Street, Cork City, Co Cork
There are no internal photographs of this Friar Street terrace, so I think it's safe to assume it's not exactly turnkey-ready.
However, the 65-square-metre house is surprisingly large with three bedrooms and one bathroom and is within a short walk of UCC and Cork city centre. It'd make for an ideal starter home you can put your own stamp on and the location makes it very rentable or sellable further down the line.
8 Saint Francis Place, Limerick City, Co Limerick
This quaint two-bedroom has already undergone some modernisation with a relatively recent kitchen added. However, it is in need of some upkeep, particularly in the bathroom.
Upstairs is split in two, with a bedroom to the front and rear and a set of built-in storage in the upper landing. Out back is a small yard.
16 St. Marys Road , Dundalk, Co Louth
A late Victorian terrace, this one retains some of its original features, including cornicing around the front porch and a timber spindle staircase. Another property that has clearly been on the rental market for some time, it is in need of a little sprucing up and a full-time live-in homeowner could really bring this place alive.
Located in the heart of town and facing St Mary's School, it has three bedrooms as well as an attic space that is ready to be converted.
35 Darley Terrace, Dublin 8
This one is the biggest project of them all and when you see the interiors, the price tag suddenly makes sense. However, for someone with a keen eye and a desire to fix up their own home, this place is a great starting point.
It's got two bedrooms and two bathrooms and all the potential to be a gorgeous little gaff within walking distance of Stephen's Green.
