How about this cottage in the Irish countryside for less than a cost of family car?
A cottage is being auctioned as a Christmas gift for less than the price of a family car.
Killasanowel Cottage lies on 1.7 acres in rolling farmland 5km outside Carrick-On-Shannon, Co Leitrim.
It is being auctioned online on Tuesday, December 19, with an advised minimum value of €25,000.
The property is listed with REA Brady in Carrick-on-Shannon.
Joe Brady of REA Brady said that some lucky purchaser is going to end up with a bargain that will need a lot of work, but could turn out to be idyllic.
"It is a rural cottage in a tranquil setting that, with a lot of tender loving care, could be a family project and a home to make memories in. Let's be clear, this is a project, but underneath that rough exterior is a diamond," he said.
