IN THE CURRENT high-demand property market, it’s tough to get a sense of what exactly your money is worth. We’re here to make things simpler.

Each week, we handpick a number of homes within a similar budget in one location, to give you a snapshot of the property landscape at a set price point.

This week, we’re looking at properties around Laois with an asking price of exactly €300,00 – two four-beds in Portlaoise, and a seven-bed in Rathdowney.

Portlaoise: Four-bed detached

Located in a quiet enclave off the Dublin Road, Saint Jude’s is a charming detached bungalow. It has recently been remodelled and redecorated, yet still offers plenty of opportunities for its new owners to add their own touch.

The large rear garden is perhaps the most attractive feature of St Judes, with a large private lawn that’s ideal for a growing family. Portlaoise town is a five-minute drive (or 30-minute walk away), with a great choice of schools and shops here.

Portlaoise: Four-bed detached

Tucked away in Colliers Lane off the Dublin Road, Saint Joseph’s is a spacious four-bed bungalow. The interior is in need of some modern updates, but benefits from new windows and the addition of a bespoke fitted kitchen.

The accommodation includes two reception rooms, a kitchen/diner, a utility room, four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Outside, there’s a lawn and driveway to the front, plus a large lawn with a patio area to the rear.

Rathdowney: Seven-bed detached

Sitting on a 0.5 acre site overlooking Rathdowney Golf Course, this seven-bed detached house measures 2,443 sq ft. The interior could benefit from some modernisation, but the large living areas and bedrooms make it an ideal choice for a growing family.

The property is set back off the road with a lawn and driveway to the front, with a small lawn and the golf course to the rear. The centre of Rathdowney town is a 20-minute walk away, while Portlaoise is a 30-minute drive.
