From a seven-bed in Co Wexford to a home by the River Lee in West Cork.

AS A RESULT of Ireland’s climate, many of those with a green thumb turn to greenhouses to grow fruits, vegetables and flowers in chillier seasons. 

This week we’re looking at four homes around the country with beautiful gardens and greenhouses – from a seven-bed in Co Wexford to a home by the River Lee in West Cork. 

Lissarda, West Cork – €750,000

Located on 1.5 acres and overlooking the River Lee, Lake View is a beautiful family home with impressive surroundings. The four-bed property features professionally-designed gardens that are sure to impress anyone with a green thumb, with a myriad of plants and trees, a vegetable garden, vegetable beds and a glasshouse. 

Lake View measures 3,900 sq ft of light-filled accommodation, and comes complete with solid beech flooring, a solid maple kitchen and a sunroom. To make the most of the beautiful surroundings, many of the south-facing rooms have French doors which open to the Indian sandstone sun terrace. Via the nearby N22, Cork city is a 30-minute drive away.
