Moving on: Lismore five-bed for just €280,000

A FIVE-bedroomed Co Waterford home, built in the 1980s for a bank manager, can now be bought for about the price that average mortgages were being farmed out at only a few years ago.

The Georgian-style, red-brick home, a mile from Lismore on the Cappoquin road, standing on a half-acre site, carries a revised €280,000 AMV via agents, Dominic Daly & Co, and will be sold to the best offer, they stress: the vendors are keen to move on.

The setting is scenic, within a walk of the heritage town at Ballyea east, and with its half-acre could suit a buyer who wants to move out of a town or village, but not be in wilderness either.

Location: Lismore, Waterford

Price: €280,000

Size: 172 sq m

Bedrooms: 5

BER rating: Pending

VERDICT: Plenty of space, plus a good site, but a bit of modernising is needed, hence the price.
