Trish Dromey finds a cool and quirky home in Buttevant that is in true turnkey condition, and all for under the magical €100k price range.
YOU won’t find many properties priced at €99,000 that have a Jacuzzi bath — especially not ones that were built in 1798
But such a property has just come on the market at No 59 Main Street, Buttevant, a mid-terraced, three storey house which was bought and renovated by an Eastern European man four years ago
Selling agents DNG Ryan say it’s quirky and interesting with an attractive mix of old and modern features. There is some unusual old stonework on its bright blue exterior and the living room has an exposed stone wall and a traditional style beamed ceiling.
“The vendor has modernised by fitting a new kitchen, a bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and, on the second floor, he knocked down a partition wall to create one large bedroom,” says auctioneer John Ryan adding that other improvements included new doors and some dry lining.
The front door opens into a dining/living room with an antique style fireplace and décor. To the rear an archway leads to a kitchen with modern units and a doorway to a small yard with whitewashed walls.
The first floor has a modern bathroom and a bedroom which doubles as an office while the second floor has a bedroom with a vaulted timber panelled ceiling.
The 790 sq ft property has electric heating and a mix of double and single glazed windows. Mr Ryan says the ‘F’ energy rating is fairly typical for a property of this age.
Returning home to Eastern Europe, the vendor is including all the contents in the sale. Mr Ryan doesn’t expect to have any difficulty with the sale, as he says it’s well maintained, in very good condition and ideally located.
VERDICT: Quirky and affordable.
