A three-bed semi-detached home in Kildare for €159,000
What is it? An executor sale sees this three-bed semi coming to market at Wrightscross, Grangemellon, five miles from Athy on the Carlow Road.
Tell me more about the place...
There's three bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room, a shower room and an acre of land at the back.
The good news?
Although in need of work, the windows are new and it has a good heating system, meaning that you could move in and live there for years before doing the work. Athy has a train service to Dublin for commuters and the acre is a big prospect for potential smallholders. Next door has already extended to a good degree.
And the bad news?
There's no bathroom proper, only a shower room which is located off the kitchen. So you'll need to extend for a modern kitchen and living room at the back. You'll need to carry out a full redecoration.
How much to buy it?
The asking price is €159k.
And to fix it up?
With the extension as well as the refurb, you'll likely spend another €100k.
What will I end up with?
A bright, spacious, modernised family home which can afford city commuters the best of both worlds.
Who do I talk to?
Louise McKillen of Sherry FitzGerald McDermott, (059) 8632797, has the keys.
