First up is this handsome country home in Ballinphuill, County Mayo, sent to me by regular reader Deez. The three-bedroom house looks like it was once, as Deez wrote, a gorgeous home with a stately air about it.
Clearly a lot of work to be done (including replacing rather a lot of missing windows) and access is through a gateway over a railway line - which has to be the most bizarre situation of any property I've featured.That aside, this is lovely rural home in a pretty bit of Ireland with a price tag that makes it particularly appealing - just 59,000euro (c£49.5k)!
On the market through Sherry Fitzgerald. Details and more pictures here and here.
Rather more manageable perhaps is this traditional, two-bedroom cottage. Also in County Mayo and also on the market with Sherry Fitzgerald.
More importantly, it comes with 2.3 acres of land, including orchard and gardens, and access via a private lane (without crossing a rail track...).
Details and more pictures here and here. (Incidentally, when I emailed hubby a link to the cottage, he sent me back a link to the nearest builder's store. You blokes really do have your own way of thinking, don't you ; )
My final pick is in County Kerry. Needs more work this one but the location is quite breathtaking - and only a couple of miles from the sea.
It's basically three ground floor stores/rooms plus a detached outbuilding - all stone-built - but there's no information on what land it comes with. You'll want to check whether it's only the land it stands on.
