3 modern family homes around Ireland for under €300,000

If you fancy country living with modern amenities, one of these beautiful Irish homes might be just the thing.

Mid-century modern design came back into vogue a couple of years ago and it’s enjoyed continued popularity ever since. Rooted in functionality, the style is recognisable for its focus on clean lines, muted tones and simplicity and these three houses showcase the best of it.

All on the market for under €300,000, two can be found in Co Waterford, while the third is located in Co Sligo. 

12 Ormonde Crescent, Lismore Lawn, Waterford, €295,000

Just after undergoing extensive renovations, this stunning three bedroom semi-detached property in Waterford would make the perfect family home. Conveniently situated in the quiet and sought after residential area of Ormonde Crescent in Lismore Lawn, the property is within walking distance to all local amenities including shops, bars, restaurants and a choice of schools including St Pauls, The Mercy and The Presentation. Waterford City Centre is only a five-minute drive away and there is also a regular bus route operating daily nearby.

Downstairs you’ll find the open plan kitchen/dining/living room which is ideal for hosting visitors. The kitchen has ample storage space and the tiled flooring and white countertop help to bring light to the area. 

128 Rusheen Árd, Caltragh, Sligo, Co. Sligo, €215,000

Nestled within the highly popular residential scheme of Rusheen Ard, this fully modernised three bedroom semi-detached property has been beautifully finished and is only a short distance from Sligo town. All amenities are close by including national and secondary schools, as well as a creche and several supermarkets.

The open plan kitchen/living room makes it easy to keep an eye on little ones when otherwise engaged, while the fully enclosed back garden is a great spot for them to take their energy out when the sun shines. 

103 Cluain Larach, Knockenduff, Tramore, Co. Waterford, €297,000

Found in a quiet cul-de-sac in one of Tramore’s most popular estates, this three bedroom semi-detached property is conveniently located within walking distance of Summerhill Retail Centre with several primary and secondary schools in the nearby town. 

Inside, the entrance hallway has been fitted with ceramic tile flooring which leads into the kitchen where you’ll find spacious units, wood effect ceramic tile flooring, and an integrated oven and hob. There is a large south-facing garden to the rear of the house with a small wooden shed at the bottom.
