What will €1.25m buy in the Caribbean, Scotland, Sweden and Rathfarnham?
Take 5: From a Bahamas estate to a Dublin five-bed and a Scottish period house
DNG is seeking €1.25 million for 10 Crannagh Road in Rathfarnham, a fine five-bedroom Stringer-built home. While parts of the 164sq m (1,765sq ft) property could do with an upgrade, the rear garden - laden with fruit trees and extending to 30m (100ft) – offers enormous potential to extend, subject to planning.
This 0.55ha (1.37 acre) estate on Man-o-War Cay comprises five houses with 409sq m (4,400sq ft) of accommodation and room for 14 guests. Bordered to the front by a pristine white sandy beach, the houses - which have some slight damage from Hurricane Dorian - have wraparound porches, shaded patios and are connected by stone lined pathways with spectacular ocean views. Price: €1.265 million (US$1.5 million). Agent: sothebysrealty.com
This attractive period house has six bedrooms with additional accommodation in two separate cottages and lies on 12.5ha (31 acres) with a wildlife pond and a 7ha (17 acre) paddock. Dating from 1889, the main house features impressive elaborate panelling and has a Mozolowski and Murray greenhouse in the gardens. In total, the properties have 14 bedrooms and so could work as guest lodging.
