IF YOU HAVE kids, you’ll likely know the struggle of having Lego, dolls and toys dotted throughout every room in the house. This is where the appeal of a playroom comes in. It’s a base for your kids, and for their bits and pieces too (most of the time).
This week we’re looking at four homes around the country with spaces that’d make ideal playrooms – from a modern four-bed in Athea to a home in the peaceful Clare countryside.
Situated in the heart of Athea village, this four-bed family home boasts numerous attractive features. It was completely renovated and extended in 2015, making for a bright and spacious property with a modern and homely touch.
On the ground floor, the kitchen, diner and living room is open plan, while there’s also a spacious room to the side, currently used as a playroom. Externally, the garage has been converted into a home gym and is surrounded by 0.51 acres of mature lawns, a patio and a separate courtyard.
Tucked away in the peaceful Clare countryside, this attractive four-bed property boasts picturesque views throughout its 2,583 sq ft. Positioned on a 0.5 acre site, there are manicured lawns to the front and side, and a large patio to the rear.
There are multiple spacious living areas in the accommodation, including an open plan kitchen and dining room, a light filled conservatory and a sizeable playroom. On the first floor, there’s a home office with space for two work stations, while outside there’s a 645 sq ft double garage.
Positioned on a large corner site, 9 Canterbrook also benefits from being located in a quiet cul de sac that consists of just 15 homes. There’s ample off-street parking to the front of the property, while the rear garden is south-facing and comprises a patio and a lawn.
The ground floor accommodation includes a kitchen, a separate south-facing dining room, a sitting room with a bay window, a playroom, a utility room and a bathroom. On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms, one single bedroom, one en suite bathroom and the main bathroom. The heart of Navan town is less than a 10-minute drive away.
Located a 15-minute walk from the heart of Portarlington and a 10-minute drive from the train station, 65 Crann Nua benefits from being within close proximity of a number of schools, shops and other amenities, while also enjoying the calmness that comes with being outside a city.
The accommodation comprises an open plan kitchen and dining room, a living room, a separate playroom, four double bedrooms and three bathrooms. Outside, there’s plenty of room for little ones to play on the lawn in the rear garden, while a patio area is ideal for dining al fresco.
