IT may come as little surprise that €425,000 will get you a sparkling seafront villa on the Spanish coast. But what will this sum buy you in other locales around the globe?
Just how much bang for your buck do you get with Spanish property compared to others?
Spain: Costa Blanca €425,000
Overlooking the sea in Ciudad Quesada, this villa offers 190sqm of space across four bedrooms.
Its expansive terrace, soaking up the sun on more than 30sqm, comes with a tempting swimming pool.
This residence boasts stunning coastal views. But how does it shape up next to properties in other countries with the same pricetag?
Ireland: Sligo €430,000
In the picturesque Irish landscape of Sligo, the six-bedroom Oghill House beckons.
This period home offers sweeping views of Killala Bay to the west and the majestic Ox Mountains to the east.
Constructed around 1839, it retains its historic charm, with a range of period features intact including various outbuildings, a courtyard, and its own fresh water supply.
It is located just a 10-minute drive from Enniscrone Beach.
France: Martiel €430,000
This farmstead boasts a two-bed country house and, intriguingly, a one-bed cottage – potential a source of rental income. However, the one-bed cottage is in need of renovation.
The property has the potential to be converted into a spacious five-bed country house, complete with a pool and ample farmlands – at an additional cost.
It is located just 10 minutes away from the medieval village of Villefranche-de-Rouergue and the picturesque Aveyron Gorges.
United States: New York $455,000 (€429,871)
In the heart of the Catskills, upstate New York, lies a charming relic from 1910, also four beds.
Spread over a superior 220sqm, it also comes with a sprawling back garden, nestled on a 0.66-acre plot – or 2,663.36sqm.
It is a two-hour drive from New York City in one direction and the slopes of Windham Mountain Club in the other.
Caribbean: St Kitts and Nevis $450,000 (€425,167)
Zooming over to the Caribbean, €425,000 only buys you a one-bed unit.
It does have other attractions, however, being located within a community of luxurious, eco-friendly cottages and villas in a five-star resort sprawled across 400 acres of gently sloping hillside.
It also boasts sea views and comes with a private pool, communal amenities, and locally sourced cuisine.
