IF SOAKING IN the bath is part of your nightly relaxation routine, or you head straight to the hot tub whenever you’re staying in a hotel, you’ve probably dreamt about having your own private jacuzzi at home.
This week, we’re looking at homes around the country with their own jacuzzis – from a five-bed in Meath to a 350-year-old property in north Co Dublin.
A four-bed detached property, 128 Brightwater is a spacious family home of 1,733 sq ft. It features two living rooms and one play room, while the kitchen has been upgraded with sleek cabinets and integrated appliances. Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms, a family bathroom and an en suite bathroom.
Most impressively, however, is the log cabin in the rear garden, which features a seven-seater hot tub on its veranda. The log cabin makes for the perfect games room or den, and comes with a snooker table. Crosshaven village is a 15-minute walk away, with beautiful views to be enjoyed from the Royal Cork Yacht Club.
A two-for-one deal, Careg-Wen is a four-bedroom property which includes a separate two-bedroom cottage in its sale. The cottage was built in 2011 and boasts a beautiful open-plan kitchen, living and dining area with solid timber units, a double-height ceiling, window seats and a stove with a brick surround.
Careg-Wen sits on five acres of mature gardens, including stud-railed paddocks, a horse-walker, sand arena and a machinery shed. A large outdoor jacuzzi is positioned to enjoy views of the surrounding countryside. Sallins is a five-minute drive away, while Straffan can be reached in 10 minutes.
Located on a site of 1.04 acres, the main residence in this four-bed property dates back 350 years, while the fourth bedroom was once the former post office for the village. Nowadays, the property boasts two reception rooms and a large conservatory, as well as a recreation room with a hot tub and overhead vines which grow red grapes.
The master bedroom benefits from a cast iron fireplace and feature high ceilings, while French doors open to a private sun terrace. Outside, the gardens feature a small pond, a paved patio area and a lawn area, with mature shrubs and trees throughout. The property is located in the heart of Garristown village, while its location close to the Meath/Dublin border means Ashbourne town is just a 10-minute drive away.
A detached five-bed property on 1.6 acres of wooded grounds, this residence enjoys a great sense of privacy. Measuring 2,949 sq ft, the family home comes to the market in pristine condition, with timber and maple floors throughout. Two of the five double bedrooms include en suite bathrooms, while four bedrooms feature sliderobes.
There’s plenty of space to unwind at this property, with a cinema room and home office/study on the second floor, as well as a detached garage to the front and a cabin with a hot tub to the rear. Kells town is a 15-minute drive away, while the nearby M3 makes it easy to get to the capital.
