From a five-bed in Co Cork to a three-bed bungalow in Co Wexford.

AS THE WEATHER improves and people around the country are spending more time at home than ever, having a home with a large back garden has never sounded more appealing. 

This week, we’re looking at homes around the country with spacious rear gardens to enjoy the sun in – from a five-bed in Co Cork to a three-bed bungalow in Co Wexford.

Enniscorthy, Co Wexford – €295,000

Coming to the market in turn-key condition, this three-bed bungalow sits on 0.57 acres of manicured grounds. Built in 2009, it features a spacious living room, kitchen and sun room. There’s timber flooring throughout, while the kitchen is finished with bespoke walnut units.

A hand-crafted walnut staircase leads to the first floor, with two bedrooms, a walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom here. Either of these rooms could easily be transformed into a home office, playroom or another living area. The property has been fitted with solar panels for increased energy efficiency, and is located a 10-minute drive from Enniscorthy.
