Take a look inside the ultimate doer-upper in beautiful Co Kerry

Ballybunion house

What do you look for when you are buying a property?

Different people have different aims for the home they are looking to buy. Many people want a fully furnished home they can move into and get straight on with their lives.

Others like a project they can get their teeth into and use a combination of elbow grease and TLC to turn a run-down property into a dream home.

Of course, taking on a major project has the potential to be very rewarding both in terms of generating a sense of achievement and also financially.

Take a look at this huge property in beautiful Co Kerry that is on the market for just €150,000.

The 12-bedroom home needs plenty of work, which will take a lot of effort and money on top of the sale price, but it certainly has potential to be a very desirable property – especially given its location by the sea in one of Ireland’s most beautiful counties.

The property is close to the picturesque seaside town of Ballybunion, Co Kerry.

It is listed on Daft.ie and they describe some of the work that will need to be done – but also what potential there is in the building.

As well as 12 bedrooms, there are six bathrooms, a fitted kitchen, a dining room with plenty of natural light, a sitting room with a solid fuel open fireplace and gable window, an entrance hall and rear lobby.

The listing states: “Located in the periphery of Ballybunion seaside resort this large property enjoys a convenient and sought after setting about 1 mile from town centre.

“The extensive dwelling extends to approximately 281.17 sqm occupying approximately 0.7 acre public roadside site. The dwelling is serviced by mains water and the mains sewer is sited along the public road, but currently there is no connection (The buyer will be liable to connect to the sewer).

“The large site enjoys views of the Shannon Estuary. The property offers great potential and viewing is highly advised.”
