2019 Remembered: Property Watch: Five homes in Laois that are a handy-man’s dream

There were many houses on the market throughout the year and these were any handy man’s dream to work on.

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
