It being missing from the EA photos says it all.

This is just in your mind and fair play for the right thinking of the day you buy is the day you sell. But I and probably many others would love to have a mobile mast within a couple of hundred metres of my house. Think of the benefits - high speed mobile broadband for €30/month. Assuming its 4g, expect 20mb-30mb download and then true high speed when 5g comes along. Think of the cost savings over having FTTH or the saving of your sanity of having to deal with eir.

If I had that house and i was selling it - this would be a sales feature. I'd add at least €5k to the price

Ah EA photos are always a bit suspect.

Rooms made to look enormous with wide angle lenses, exposure increased to make every room look really bright, bright and sunny skies in the photos so the garden looks spectacular.

Wouldn't read too much into that.

The neighbour's house is on a lower level (down a slight hill) so their house isn't really too visible in the line of sight. The phone mast is on a raised piece of land behind their house which is on the boundary with the house I'm thinking about and extends 24 metres up from there, directly in the line of sight and in the middle of the 'panoramic views'. That's why I'd consider it an eyesore, and the closeness of it makes it more prominent.

It's a probate sale and the house has been empty for a number of years so the owners may not have known the mast was going in.

So the fact it's a phone mast is irrelevant really, it's just that there's an unnatural structure in your view that spoils it for you. Could be anything, electric poles, wind turbine etc.

So really it just comes down to whether or not you'd ever get used to it being there, or it would just annoy you forever. Nobody else can answer this one for you.

How close to the house (and garden) is the mast, and is it the first thing you see? (largely hidden by the hedge or casts a shadow on the garden,
If everything else about the house works for you, and the mast isn't going to impact, then go for it..

If you got the house at a bit cheaper, would the eyesore still annoy you? If yes, look at another house, if no, haggle the price down.
