26 The Cedar, Cruagh Wood, Dublin 18
Hunters Estates is seeking €325,000 for 26 The Cedar, Cruagh Wood, a two-bedroom apartment of 70sq m in Stepaside, Dublin 18.
Traditional two-bedroom house 300m from the seafront on the island of Hydra, with superb views over the sea to the Peloponnese islands. Donkeys and boats are the only form of transport on the island, which has been declared a national historic monument and was beloved of Leonard Cohen and his muse Marianne Ihlen. There are strict building rules in place so the view from the terrace over the town’s rooftops is unlikely to change too much. The stone house of around 92sq m has a cool interior with exposed stone walls and beamed ceilings. A hydrofoil to Athens takes around 90 minutes.
Located in the Orb valley in southern France, this pretty stone farmhouse of 80q m has two en suite bedrooms plus a separate studio or bedroom with en suite. Located on a large plot with gardens and a pool with views over the surrounding countryside, the house is in a small town, approximately half an hour’s drive to Beziers, famous for bullfighting, and within easy reach of the Languedoc coast.
Renovated two-bedroom apartment with a large outdoor terrace in an old building in the Poble Sec neighbourhood of Barcelona, a fast gentrifying quarter with picturesque squares, a growing food scene and a large public park . The 60sq m apartment, accessed from an open air staircase, has exposed brick walls and tiled floors. The living room has two floor-to-ceiling windows that open out on to the 23sq m terrace.
