IF HOSTING AND entertaining is your forte, you’ve probably dreamed about having a dedicated games room.
This week we’re looking at four properties around the country with games rooms for fun nights in – from a four-bed in Balbriggan to a home with a pool in Co Cork.
Located within a two-minute walk of the beach and 10 minutes from the heart of Rathmullan village, 3 Woodbrook is an ideal holiday home or peaceful full-time residence. The four-bed property, which sits on 0.8 acres, has been recently modernised and comes to the market in excellent condition.
The garage has been converted into a spacious games room with ample built-in seating and plenty of space for a snooker table. It benefits from direct access to the main house, while a set of double doors open to the front garden.
A four-bed dormer bungalow, Baros is a modern and spacious family home. It includes a self-contained one-bedroom annex, while outside there’s a detached games room and separate garage.
There’s a built-in bar in the garage, as well as space for a pool table and a seating area. The annex can easily be reincorporated into the main house with the removal of one partition wall, if the new owners would like to extend the accommodation further. Balbriggan town is a 15-minute walk away.
Measuring 4,500 sq ft and on a 0.5 acre elevated site, space will never be an issue at 6 The Hermitage. The six-bed house comes to the market in turn-key condition and boasts multiple impressive features, including an indoor pool and a games room.
The rear garden is west-facing and includes a large patio area and dedicated BBQ area, as well as a sizeable lawn. There’s also a detached garage, which is in use as a home gym. Cork city is a 15-minute drive away.
Approached via a winding driveway and situated on 1.6 acres of landscaped mature gardens, Kilcornan makes a lasting first impression. The property was built in 2002 and measures an astounding 6,500 sq ft, including six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and three reception rooms.
There’s also a games room with a fully fitted bar, a gym and a solid oak kitchen with granite counter tops. There are numerous high quality features throughout, including solid wood floors, porcelain tiling, an integrated hoover system and a high-tech security system.
