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?

The same amount of dough will buy you a fancy period home in Ireland that’s almost 200 years old. edelrolstonproperty.ie

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.

In France you can purchase an entire spacious farmstead. It only has two bedrooms but comes with a one-bed cottage attached. immobilier-lespritdesud.com

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. 

Hopping across the pond, in NY a similar fee will get you a four-bedder with a sprawling back garden that goes on for miles. sothebyrealty.com

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.

In St Kitts and Nevis, this home may not be quite right for raising a family, but it is located in a luxurious gated community in a five-star resort.  sothebysrealty.com

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.
