The house has three bedrooms and is advertised on by Private Treaty, with his listener advising that he is a “fixer-upper”.

The listing stated: “The cottage would be an ideal top property for repairs and has much to offer the right client.”

Inside the picturesque property, the scope of work needed to fix it is clearer.

Carpets and flooring have been torn in all three bedrooms and ivy has grown through some of the ceiling tiles.

Inside there are some wooden furniture, including an armchair, a table and a wardrobe. However, most of the items have been damaged by the elements and are broken or falling apart.

And on the walls, paint and wallpaper have peeled or become distorted in color, with one wall marked with white-label graffiti.

Some of the window panes appear to be intact, while other window frames are fitted with wooden boards.


The traditional farmhouse is equipped with two fireplaces and two fireplaces, with one of the mantelpieces intact.

The roof of the building is also intact, but the ivy and bushes have partially grown.

Elsewhere, DNG Liam O Grady Auctioneers has also listed a property on, which is in need of modernization and repair.

This traditional cottage is situated in the popular Lisnagaul area, 5 km from the town of Bansha, in County Tipperary.

The two-bedroom apartment boasts exquisite views of the Galtee Mountains and sits on 0.56 acres of land and is for sale for just €60,000.

Although the house offers idyllic views of the surrounding countryside, it is inside the house that interested buyers should prepare for.

The back wall of the attic has several large cracks and the floor will also need repair.
