From the outside, it’s picture perfect.
Like most country fixer-uppers however, Barnacurra, a cute traditional cottage in Newmarket, will require a buyer with some guts and imagination.
Still, at a bargain €50,000, this sale represents an opportunity to own a little piece of the Irish countryside for much less than your average property… with plenty of room to expand.
The three-bedroom home is on 0.75 acre site. There are outbuildings included in the sale too – a huge plus if you dream of having somewhere to house your hobbies or a little extra space to welcome guests.
Included on the plot is a three-column barn, a cubicle shed and two rustic stone stables, which have a ton of potential.
The interior will need attention, as well as some time and money, to make it habitable.
As well as new wiring and heating, there’ll be some plastering and repairs to do. A buyer with an eye for the little features that make this property special will find plenty of treasures to restore.
Seeing as you could potentially own it with monthly mortgage payments of €166 and a deposit of €5k, that may well leave some funds in the bank for modern updates.
This property is situated in a quiet and rural setting with excellent views of the surrounding countryside, a ten-minute drive to Newmarket town.
