Guiding at €185,000 it’s been completely refurbished by current owners and according to Andrew Moore Auctioneers is in “turn-key condition”.

“It’s been redecorated and has new double glazed timber windows, a new bathroom, new kitchen units, recessed lighting and the floors have been sanded and varnished,” says Mr Moore.
