Carrigaline, Co Cork
DNG Michael Creedon is seeking €300,000 for this three-bedroom bungalow on Ferney Road, Carrigaline, Co Cork.
This four-bed house is in Mombercelli, Asti, between Turin and Genoa. On nearly six acres of land, the L-shaped property comprises of a main house (that needs an update), and guest house which is ready to go. This has a kitchen/dining room, bedroom and bathroom, while the main part has a living room with fireplace, a kitchen, a dining room downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs with original cotto tiles. There is also a cellar.
Being a simple little house (second right in the picture) is part of this property’s charm: it is rare to have a non-high-rise property right on the beach. On Haraki Bay, north of Lindos, on the island of Rhodes, the house measures 36sq m (387sq ft). The house was built in 1983 and renovated three years ago to include a new kitchen and bathroom. Living accommodation is downstairs and there is one bedroom upstairs. There is also a terrace at ground level and a balcony on the first floor.
On the east coast of Cyprus, in the resort of Kapparis, this house has views of the nearby sea and a swimming pool of its own. The 157sq m (1,689sq ft) house, built in 2006, has an open-plan kitchen and living area with glazed doors looking out to sea, plus three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The surrounding garden has terraces with sea views. The beach, shops and restaurants are within walking distance. The seaside town of Protaras is a five-minute drive away.
