AS WE INCH closer to the summer months, now is the time to dust off the deck chairs and get the back garden ready to be enjoyed on sunny days and long evenings.
This week we’re looking at four properties around the country with gardens that are ready for summer – from a spacious four-bed in Tipperary to a modern home in Meath.
Located on a half-acre site just 7km from Thurles, this four-bed property enjoys a tranquil countryside location. The grounds have been beautifully maintained, with lawn areas to the front and rear, while there’s a patio area to the side for al fresco dining. The interior spans 2,428 sq ft, including a bespoke kitchen, a recently fitted main bathroom, three stoves and semi-solid wood flooring.
Measuring 1,130 sq ft, 34 Parklands Drive is a well laid-out three-bed family home. It features a spacious driveway to the front and side, while the rear garden comprises a patio area that’s perfect for entertaining and a lawn area. The interior could benefit from some modernisation, but offers bright living areas and a kitchen extension. Cork city is a handy 10-minute drive away.
Sitting on a site that’s just short of one acre, The Rock is a beautiful family home. It features an attractive exterior and front garden with a water fountain, while the rear garden has an expansive lawn area with mature trees and shrubs. The accommodation briefly comprises two living rooms, a conservatory, a kitchen/dining area, four bedrooms and five bathrooms.
Built in 2002 and with modern updates, 3 The Crescent comes to the market in turn-key condition. The four-bed property boasts a bright, spacious and stylish interior, and benefits from a new kitchen and new bathrooms. The rear garden is designed for sunny summer evenings, with two paved seating areas and a large lawn. Bettystown Beach is a 20-minute walk away.
