Town and country

What will €300,000 buy?


Address: 63 Mount Drummond Square, Harold’s Cross, Dublin 6
Agent:Sherry FitzGerald

This 63sq m (678sq ft) two-bedroom house has location on its side, being at the city end of Harold’s Cross, near the canal and Rathmines. On the ground floor is a livingroom with fireplace and kitchen/diningroom beside the bathroom at the back of the house. There is a southeast facing 40ft garden. Upstairs are two bedrooms. BER: E2

In a quiet enclave near shops, the city centre and green spaces.

While it’s on a square with no through traffic, there are houses in the middle, unlike other green squares nearby. It’s a bit of a trek to the toilet at night.

Address:Cregg House, Cregg, Oughterard, Co Galway
Agent: DNG Martin O’Connor

This is the first time this 185.81sq m (2,000sq ft) house, built in the 1930s, has come on the market. On an acre just outside the village of Oughterard, the two-storey southfacing house comes with period features including fireplaces, Aga, coving and picture rails. Even the front door is original, and it opens on to a hallway which runs to a dual-aspect diningroom with fireplace; a dual-aspect livingroom with fire; kitchen and bathroom. Th ere are three bedrooms. The house sits in mature gardens.

The proportions, period features, southfacing views over the shrub and tree-rich garden that offers soft shelter.

It needs some work – and the swathes of beige will probably go – but you get unsullied period features as compensation.
