From a three-bed in Lucan to a four-bed in Co Meath.

ADDING AN EXTENSION to a property allows the owner to introduce elements that the home was originally lacking, like natural light and an open-plan design.

This week, we’re looking at homes around the country with spacious extensions – from a three-bed in Lucan to a four-bed in Co Meath. 

Ballinteer, Dublin 16 – €775,000

A semi-detached family home, 24 Ballinteer Gardens has been extended to include an open-plan family area to the rear, while still benefiting from a separate study, dining room and living room in the original part of the house. Measuring 1,725 sq ft, the property is located in a quiet cul-de-sac and boasts a large corner garden with a south-west facing aspect.

There are brick work features throughout the open-plan area, while the kitchen is fitted with glossy units, granite work tops, a feature island and a mini breakfast bar. An open archway leads to the dining area, where double doors open to the garden. In a highly convenient location, the property is just a 15-minute walk from Dundrum Town Centre.
