Three minutes from the centre of Portlaoise, this 232sq m (2,497sq ft) house sits in its own grounds. It is currently divided into two apartments, with a total of five bedrooms, two bathrooms, two kitchens and living rooms. It needs a complete overhaul and reconfiguration.
Plus The house needs an update but there is a lovely basic palette to work with.
Minus The dull box porch to the front could go.
