Laois Property: Large house presents a 'rare opportunity'

'Burnville' on the Ballyfin Road, Portlaoise

Matt Dunne & Associates RICS SCSI is bringing 'Burnville' on the Ballyfin Road, Portlaoise to public auction on Wednesday, October 10 at 3pm in The Keadeen Hotel in Newbridge.

'Burnville' is a dormer bungalow standing on 0.25 acres. The large house, measuring 1,528 square feet/142 square metres consists of a large living room with an open fireplace, a kitchen dining area, a downstairs bedroom and bathroom, a dormer section and three bedrooms and a bathroom.

Outside there is a detached garage and a large walled in garden of 0.25 of an acre.

In the recent past the house had extensive fire damage and was refurbished. However, it still requires extensive remedial repairs.

There is no certificate of compliance, consequently it will not be possible to get a mortgage on the house.
“Cash buyers only, I’m afraid,” said Matt Dunne.

“This is a rare opportunity to purchase a big house for small money, very close to Portlaoise town centre,” said Matt.

The Auction takes place in the Keadeen Hotel, Newbridge at 3pm on Wednesday, October 10.
