Town and Country


Address: 30 St Brigid’s Park, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15 Agent: Alliance Auctioneers

Situated in Blanchardstown village, just off the main street, this terraced house has four bedrooms. It has off-street parking for two cars at the front and a large 80ft by 28ft garden.

There is a sittingroom, kitchen, utility, a bathroom and separate toilet. Castleknock station is eight minutes walk. BER F Plus: The huge garden. The interior is a good blank canvas with laminate floors and pale walls.

Minus: Not much insulation judging by the F BER. There’s quite a lot of storage – often a good thing but here some off it is a bit dated and could be taken out to free up more space.

Address: Mount Pleasant, Newmarket, Co Cork Agent: Colman O’Kelly Auctioneers This 19th-century five-bedroom house on six acres needs work but comes with stone outbuildings and a cobbled courtyard. A mile outside Newmarket, it has two receptions, a diningroom, kitchen, utility and bathroom.

Plus: Beautifully proportioned house with plenty of land, stone outbuildings and cobbled yard.

Minus: The out-of-character PVC windows.
