Up on the first floor are four bedrooms, all en-suite. The total floor area is 2,000 sq ft. It's on a one-acre site with gardens front and back.
€195k Pat Gannon (056) 772 3298
You can see Mount Leinster from this detached property, about three kilometres from Bagenalstown. It's been recently renovated and has some 1,700 sq ft of space, with four bedrooms. These are all on the first floor, along with a shower room. The ground floor has a sitting room with a solid-fuel stove, a playroom, an office, and a kitchen with separate utility room, along with the main bathroom. It's on a third of an acre of grounds with a patio, a lawned garden with some groves of mature trees, and a detached garage.
Former clubhouse, Graiguealug
€250k REA Sothern (059) 913 1218
As the name suggests, this used to be the Leinster Hills golf clubhouse, but the selling agents claim it should be a simple enough conversion back to a family home. If so, you'll get a 5,000 sq ft property with a wraparound balcony, complete with a good-sized restaurant-style kitchen and a bar with a vaulted timber ceiling, which you may wish to keep if the need for a 19th hole doesn't wear off. It's on two acres not far from Carlow town, and there's a driveway and parking, along with a detached workshop on the grounds.
Stonecutters Cottage, H’town
€128,500 Sherry FitzGerald McDermott Carlow (059) 914 0344
This 19th century cottage, just under three kilometres from Hacketstown, is aptly named, as it's quaintly and neatly finished throughout with exposed stone walls along with flagstone floors and wooden ceilings. It has a parlour with a flagstone floor, a beamed ceiling and a solid-fuel stove, a sunroom with French doors, and a fitted kitchen and dining room. There's one bedroom, low-ceilinged with skylights. The garden includes a raised deck, a gravelled parking area and a lawn, and there's a large barn with a sliding door.
