WHETHER YOU’RE A keen gardener, want a space for the kids to play safely outdoors or simply enjoy sitting outside, there’s no shortage of benefits to having a sizeable garden.
This week we’re looking at four homes around the country with at least one acre of gardens – from a five-bed in Wexford to a turnkey property in Tipperary.
Located a five-minute drive from the coastal village of Rathmullan, this four-bed home has plenty of appeal. It is located on a neat one acre site which includes parking for multiple cars, outdoor seating areas and a large garage, and enjoys views over Lough Swilly. The interior is in excellent condition and features multiple spacious living areas.
Approached via electric gates, Whitehaven is an attractive five-bed family home. It sits on one acre of gardens which are mainly laid in lawn, and boasts 3,230 sq ft of accommodation. The interior is bright and airy, and includes a sunroom with access to a south-facing patio, while the master suite includes a large walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom. Outside, there’s a double garage and a workshop. New Ross is a 15-minute drive away.
With Blackrock Mountain as its backdrop and views of Beltra Lake to the front, this four-bed property is truly spectacular. It is located on one acre of gardens, while the accommodation measures 3,200 sq ft. There’s also a detached garage/workshop to the side of the house. The interior is warm and welcoming, with features including solid oak beams, newly fitted gas stoves and a timeless country-style kitchen with a Rayburn cooker.
Coming to the market in turnkey condition, this five-bed home wouldn’t look out of place in a glossy interiors magazine. The accommodation spans 5,005 sq ft and has been tastefully decorated throughout. There are multiple large living areas, while four of the five bedrooms boast walk-in wardrobes. Outside, there are 1.26 acres of mature gardens, plus a large garage which has been divided into three.
