BAY WINDOWS ARE a big plus for any house hunter who values a naturally-lit and bright space. Not only do they pull in the daylight from many different angles, they also provide better outdoor views, which is an advantage in a countryside setting. This week, we’ve found four homes across Ireland, available to view on Daft, that have beautiful bay windows – from a seaside home in west Cork to a modern family home on the grounds of a hotel in Waterford.
No 9 The Fairways is a modern home that was built in 2001 and sits on the grounds of Faithlegg House Hotel. Spread across 260 m², the spaces comprises two living rooms, an open plan kitchen with dining space, a study and a utility room. Five bedrooms make up the first floor and three of these have en suite bathrooms.
Golf enthusiasts are sure to delight in the 18-hole championship golf course that’s just a short walk from this home’s front door. The facilities of the hotel are all ready and waitinf to be used too, whether your want to eat in the restaurant or get active in the gym. Waterford city is an easy commute as it’s just ten kilometres away.
Sitting on one acre, this three-bed home overlooks Tragumna Bay near the west Cork town of Skibbereen. The house was built in the ’90s and has a C1 BER, which is definitely a plus along the Wild Atlantic Way. With a floor area of 238 m² divided over three different levels, the rooms are large and bright. The kitchen and dining area has a vaulted ceiling and stretches down to a lounge that grabs light from the side and out to the sea. There’s also a more formal dining and living room, a conservatory, a utility room and home office.
The abundance of space downstairs all makes a lot of sense seeing as there are just three bedrooms. The main bedroom sits upstairs and has an en suite bathroom. This is a split level house, and the remaining bedrooms are at the lower level – each one has is own bathroom too. The busy town of Skibbereen is just 7 km from this home. Those looking for a chance to slow down and enjoy the quiet life, a seaside home like this is what many people dream of.
This large six-bed home is 278 m² in size and sits on 1.5 acres. Surrounded by gardens and lawns, this is the ultimate country home for a big family. Inside the space includes a long hallway that links to the sitting room, open plan kitchen with dining and living area and then the conservatory. One of the five double bedrooms has a sauna in its en suite bathroom.
The patio area faces west while a river passes the site’s back boundary. The property boasts an energy efficient B3 Ber Rating, has dual fuel heating and solar panels. There is a detached garage which has been partly converted. Tullamore Golf Club is less than 3km and Tullamore town centre less than 8km.
3 Ballymun Road is a four-bed home that spans 152 m² across three levels. The house dates back to 1900 and is full of its original features like covings, wood floors, high ceilings and cast iron fireplaces. Restored over the years, the house now comprises four bedrooms, two bathrooms and an open plan kitchen and dining space that leads to the garden that’s big and faces west. It also has side access.
The older part of the house includes two connected reception rooms. Upstairs sit three spacious double bedrooms and a generous family bathroom. From here, you can access the attic which is home to the fourth bedroom. Located in Glasnevin, Drumcondra and Phibsborough, as well as the city centre, are just short strolls away.
