Property Watch: Five homes in Laois that are a handy-man’s dream

Last week, we looked at some of Laois’s most expensive houses.

However, this week we show some of the cheaper homes that have much more potential than a quick glance may let on.

Below, we have five properties listed that would be a great project for anyone creative or ambitious.

Castletown, Co. Laois

This cottage, on offer with Clement Herron Real Estate and The Leinster Property Auction, offers a great opportunity for redevelopment.

Although it is in need of total refurbishment, the property briefly comprises a living room, two bedrooms, a kitchen and a shower room.

The property is located just a short distance from Borris-in-Ossory, Castletown Village and Ballylinen.

Guide price: €60,000

Wolfe Tone Street, Mountmellick

This quaint semi-detached house located in Mountmellick Town is currently on the market with Property Properly. It is a two bedroom house that offers a blank canvas to a builder. The home needs a lot of work, however, it can be described as the ‘before’ picture in comparison to what should be a good ‘after’ one.

The house is located minutes away from the local secondary and primary schools, shops, a church and pubs and restaurants.

Guide price: €50,000

Main Street, Rathdowney

This semi-detached town house by Property Partners Mansfield is located in the heart of Rathdowney. It consists of four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a hallway and kitchen.

Although the home is in need of a lot of development, it would make the perfect family home after it’s finished.

It is located in a way that gives it perfect access to shops, pubs, a local primary school and more.

Guide price: €65,000


This property, for sale with Peavoy Auctioneers, is a four-bedroom one-bathroom house located in Cullahill.

It is on the main Durrow/Johnstown Road and is located a few minutes from both Durrow and Ballyragget.

Although the house, like the rest featured on this week’s Property Watch, is in dire need of a lot of work, it has the benefit of a ground floor retail unit and two large garages.

Guide price: €85,000

Church View, Rosenallis

REA Seamus Browne Auctioneer and Valuer presents to the public this end of terrace house in Rosenallis. It is in a prime location as it’s just a few minutes walk from most local amenities and then a further few minutes drive from the towns of Mountmellick and Portlaoise

The accommodation comprises a kitchen, living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The home has masses of potential and would be a good challenge for any experienced builder.

Guide price: €40,000
