Take5: a 60sq m (645sq ft) apartment on Via Garibaldi, in the Castello district of Venice, costs €270,000
Sherry FitzGerald Catherine O’Reilly is seeking €270,000 for this three-bedroom bungalow (below) at 160 Glebemount in Wicklow town.
With a view of the Mediterranean and the Taurus Mountains, this 220sq m (2,365sq ft) house is close to the town of Kargicak. Built in 2014, it has a living room with fireplace, two bathrooms (one with a Jacuzzi), a kitchen with granite worktop, and three bedrooms, two of which open on to balconies. Outside is a garden with swimming pool, terrace, barbecue area and garage. The beach is just under 4km away, the shops are 2.7km away and Alanya is 20 minutes by bus.
On Via Garibaldi, in the Castello neighbourhood, east of St Mark’s Square, in the area where the biennale is held, this 60sq m (645sq ft) apartment is on the second floor of a building overlooking a canal. Accommodation includes a living room with two windows, a kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom. The bathroom has been recently refurbished, but the brown-rich decor needs toning down; the floral tiles in the kitchen have a vintage, kitschy charm.
This grand home, with reception rooms measuring up to 32sq m (345sq ft), is five minutes from Surgères town. It is divided in two, with five bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom, a living room and a large hall with fireplace on one side and a living room, a kitchen, a utility, a bathroom, two bedrooms and an office on the other. It also has an attic and, on the ground floor, a 44sq m (470sq ft) storeroom. The garden has a lawn, mature trees and outbuildings that include an 80sq m (860sq ft) barn.
This apartment is in the first row of buildings overlooking Levante beach, which is just one section of the strand that runs right along the coast of Benidorm. The sea is 50m from this apartment, which has a living room with a terrace that looks out to sea and the old town, three bedrooms, a kitchen, a utility room and two bathrooms. The apartment is close to the centre of town and its main square.
