Set within a few minutes walk of the seaside harbour village, marina, and services, it’s a walk-in job for new owners, says Malcolm Tyrrell of Cohalan Downing Auctioneers, who guides at €290,000.

It’s got a mix of modernity and original features, with old fireplace, and a cast-iron roll-top bath.

Rooms include an oak-floored hall and main living room with large picture window. The new stairs is also in oak, and the painted Rosewood kitchen has a stone tile floor, and a good mix of appliances.

There’s also a ground floor guest WC, and overhead are three bedrooms, some with original wood flooring — one’s en-suite with marble tiled walls — and the bathroom has a cast-iron bath with overhead shower.

Outside is limestone paving, and attractive limestone paved courtyard, parking for several cars and/or a boat, lawns, a sloping drive, and tall timber and steel gates for privacy.

VERDICT: Major tasty works have been done, so it’s all been transformed.
