Laois Property: a two bedroom cottage and a spacious six bedroom house

Laois Property: a two bedroom cottage and a  spacious six bedroom house

Two Laois homes on sale this month

Two interesting houses are on sale in Laois this August, for budgets small and big.

On the rock bottom end of the scale, is a detached cottage in the busy commuter town of Portarlington, on sale for €110,000.

Deceptively spacious are words thrown around too much by auctioneers but this house truly is. 

The two bedroom cottage is on Patrick Street near the secondary school and RC church. 
It has mains services, oil fired central heating, fireplaces in both the sitting room and living room, a kitchen, bathroom and conservatory/utility.

There is a new heating system, fully alarmed, and a Stira stairs to attic. Auctioneers Matt Dunne & Associates describe it as a "delightful cottage".

Outside is shared access to rear gardens and outbuildings in a south facing courtyard. 

At triple the price is a spacious modern house in Campclone Ballyfin, close to the Slieve Bloom mountains and the five star Ballyfin House hotel.

The home is designed by Laois architect Evelyn Duff, and it is turned to make the most of the sun, on a four acre site.

Some minor finishes are required, perhaps explaining the relatively low asking price of €350,000.

There are two big reception rooms, and a huge kitchen with glass doors to the garden and decking, handbuilt units and a pantry. Upstairs are six bedrooms, with the master ensuite, two more with a shared ensuite, and a bathroom. 

It is for sale through Sherry FitzGerald Hyland Keating.
