Ballylynch, Baltimore, Co Cork
€650k Charles McCarthy (028) 21533
This architect-designed coastal property was built in 2002 but includes an old cottage which, together with the new house, forms a sort of courtyard. The main house is 3,000 sq ft, having been extended in 2007, and has seven bedrooms, four bathrooms, a living room with a vaulted ceiling and a bright conservatory. The original cottage hasn't been renovated. It's on 12 acres mostly in paddock but with a sun terrace and a sunken garden. There are views west to Baltimore Harbour, and the village is two kilometres away.
Na Ceithre Gaoithe, Co Wexford
€595k Denise Radley (058) 42168
Na Ceithre Gaoithe is a development of 12 houses in Ring, Co Waterford with views of Dungarvan Bay. From the front Number 8 may look like a reasonably modest bungalow, but inside it is a sprawling 3,500 sq ft house on three floors. An energy-efficient B2 rated property, it has five bedrooms, three of which are en suite, including the first-floor master. Downstairs is an open-plan kitchen and living room, a separate sitting room, a sun room, and the kitchen gives onto a 40ft by 30ft deck with sea views.
Cornarone, Inverin, Co Galway
€170k O’Donnellan & Joyce (091) 564212
This two-storey stone cottage, about eight kilometres from Spiddal, is now in good repair, with a new roof and new hardwood windows. The chimneys have been fixed and the attic insulated. From the back, there are good views south towards the Clare hills and Galway Bay. Inside is a living room, a fitted kitchen, two bedrooms and shower room, in a total floor area of 733 sq ft. There's a solid-fuel stove in the living room and potentially a ready supply of turf, as the property comes with two pieces of bogland.
