Fancy a fixer-upper? Here are four cottages on the market for under €95,000

Fancy a fixer-upper? Here are four cottages on the market for under €95,000

In the market for a fixer-upper? Sure, they require more TLC than other properties, but the pay-off of seeing your dream home come together is worth it in the end.

Buying a house ready for move-in would save you a world of hassle, but sometimes half the fun is in the glow-up. It’s not often pretty (nor is it cheap), but the satisfaction of seeing something substandard become something truly special cannot be underestimated. 

All some properties need is a fresh coat of paint or some new flooring, others, however, require much more work, so it’s important to keep in mind just how much you’re willing to take on. Below are four fixer-uppers around the country – all under the €95,000 mark – that could use a little love, but are definitely worth the investment.

Shannagh, Laghey, Co Donegal, from €50,000

A little bit of time, money and TLC would bring this property to its full potential. 

A detached three-bedroom bungalow with gardens to the front and rear, this property has huge potential for those willing to dedicate the necessary resources to the project. Comprising a single-storey beneath a pitched roof, the property has ample off-street parking and extends to approximately 69 sq. m (743 sq. ft).

Bidding on the property, which is on sale through BidX1, opens on June 30.

Kildallan, Ballyconnell, Co. Cavan, €85,000

Located in a peaceful part of Co Cavan, this three-bed property sits on 0.88 acres of land and would make for an ideal project for those looking to challenge their interior and design skills. 

Only 6km from Ballyconnell, the accommodation extends to c. 56 sqm/ 602 sq.ft. and comprises an entrance hall, sitting room with an open fireplace, three different bedrooms, a kitchen/dining room and a bathroom with a hot press.  

Serviced by a septic tank (on-site) and group water connection, electric to the property is currently disconnected. The sale also includes a large garden area to the rear of the property.

Peace Farm, Poulawaddra, Tralee, Co Kerry, €95,000

A two-bed stone cottage located in the picturesque surrounds of Co Kerry, Peace Farm is only minutes away from Tralee Town Centre. 

Recently re-roofed, the property has an added stone outbuilding that could easily be connected to the main house (planning permission dependent) along with a small extension that would create an attractive home, retreat or investment property. 

Completely immersed in nature, this property would make a great home for those looking for a retreat from busy city life. 

Knockmore Cottage, Ballinagore, Co Westmeath, €95,000

This three-bedroom cottage comes to market in relatively good condition, though it is in need of renovation works. 

Set on approximately 0.5 acres of lush green land, inside the accommodation comprises three bedrooms, a kitchen, sitting room and main bathroom. Well set-up with many local amenities nearby, Knockmore Cottage is roughly 20km from Mullingar and only 6km from the M6 at Kilbeggan.

The property is for sale by online auction from €95,00 through the offr.io platform.
