Tell me more about the place…

You will rarely find a house with such an unusual interior design. It has a bath on the top landing, there is a downstairs bedroom and a Stanley range/stove in the living room. The house, which was unoccupied for many years, was built in the early 20th century and measures just 635 square feet. It has three bedrooms, a living room, a bedroom on the ground floor, a small pantry, an annexe and a toilet on the upper floor. There is also a backyard.

The good news?

This home is located right in festive Mayo City, which is always lively, especially during the summer months. Although no research has been conducted, there is no telltale hint of damp, and externally the roof and structure look solid despite the tattered decor. It’s also very, very affordable and could be just the ticket for a budget pair. There is enough room to expand at the back and as the backyard is not gated off like some other properties there is private parking here across the lane.

And the bad news?

Some large scale reconfigurations are needed and you still won’t shake the need for a downstairs bathroom. The annexe needs to be demolished, a modern kitchen and living extension with a new bathroom, also re-wiring, plumbing, full insulation, a new bathroom, a new kitchen, heating, plastering and the beautiful sash windows are needed to be extensively restored or replaced.

How much should I buy?

The asking price is only €120,000

And to fix it?

You will have to spend almost as much, probably €100,000 is required.

What will I end up with?

For €220,000 a central A rated family home full of character in beautiful Westport.
