3 homes on the market for €175,000 and under that are packed full of character

These homes in West Cork, Tipperary and Longford have plenty of charm and interesting features.

If you’re house hunting, you might have your heart set on finding something a little out of the ordinary. Perhaps you dream of exposed beams, or wood-burning stoves, and are turned off by featureless spaces. 

If so, one of these three properties might just appeal. Each has unmistakable character, and is an antidote to soulless spaces. They’re all on the market for €175,000 and under.

Ballinamona, Cashel, Co Tipperary, €165,000

home full of charm

This two-bed cottage sits in picturesque surroundings on the High King’s Loop walk, beautifully framed by its old stone wall. Inside, the rooms have vaulted ceilings, while the kitchen has a Stanley Waterford oil fired range and Belfast sink. 

The living room feels spacious thanks to its high ceiling, while a large garden to the rear provides scope to extend, subject to planning permission. Just a five minute drive into nearby Cashel, 20 minutes to Tipperary town, and with the M8 nearby, it’s also well-located.

Thatch Cottage, Kilglass, Longford, €175,000

homes full of charm

This three-bed thatched cottage is charming both inside and out. It retains many original features, while having been sensitively updated throughout the years. Features like a stove and cut stone fireplace in the living room and a range in the kitchen are in keeping with the style of the house. 

Outside, the garden is well-sized, and a garage doubles as a utility room, with a plumbed sink and fitted units. A sitting room with whitewashed walls has timber French doors that lead out onto a rear patio area.

The Pink House, Ballydehob, West Cork, €175,000

homes full of charm

This three-bed townhouse in the popular coastal village of Ballydehob is in need of some modernisation, but has the potential to be a beautiful home. Features like stone fireplaces, timber doors and flagstone floors add plenty of character.

It’s also in an excellent location, just a short walk from any of the village’s popular cafes, pubs and restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Chestnut. You also have easy access to coastal West Cork, known for its beauty, while Skibbereen is just 15 minutes drive away.
