3 fixer-uppers in Co Monaghan for under €70,000

If you’re looking for a place to make your own, these three properties are all in need of some renovation, but have great potential to make excellent homes. 


Buying a property in need of renovation can be a great way to ensure that you’re able to add you own taste to the place, as well as potentially saving a lot of money. These three homes in Co Monaghan are all on the market for €70,000 or less, and each could become a great place to live with a little work.

Ve Annies, Clones, €70,000

Just five kilometres from Clones, this two-bedroom cottage‘s exterior is in good condition. Inside, the property has been allowed to become derelict, but there is no significant damage, and could quickly be made into a comfortable home.

To the rear there is a large outhouse that could be put to a number of uses, from storage to a workshop, and could even be added to the house as part of an extension, subject to planning permission. The house sits on a 1.4 acre site so has ample space around it.

Greaghwillan, Carrickmacross, €69,000

Although in need of extensive renovation, this early 20th-century property could be a beautiful home with some work. It currently has three bedrooms, but renovation would also be an opportunity to reconfigure or even extend this house.

It comes with several stone outbuildings that could be converted into further accommodation or used as storage or a workshop or studio space. Surrounded by mature trees, this home is full of charm and is just nine kilometres from Carrickmacross.

Letteragh, Clontibret, €60,000

Although the decor and fixtures are in need of an update, this home doesn’t need any extensive work and could be moved into straightaway if needed. It has four bedrooms and two living rooms, as well as a utility room and garage, making it ideal as a family home.

The house sits on half an acre of land, and is situated three kilometres from Clontibret and just 13 kilometres from Monaghan town.
