WHETHER IT’S FOR relaxing as a family or hosting dinner with friends, sunrooms are a popular solution for adding space to a home without losing natural light.
This week we’re looking at four properties around the country with bright sunrooms – from a thatched cottage in Co Kerry to a five-bed by a lake in Co Limerick.
Located off the Ring of Kerry, this three-bed thatched cottage is the perfect escape from everyday life. The property boasts beautiful views of Dooks Bay, Caragh River and the Seefin Mountains, while there’s a quiet beach just a 10-minute walk away. Rossbeigh Beach is a 10-minute drive away.
The house itself has been recently renovated and enjoys plenty of natural light thanks to Velux and picture windows throughout, while floor-to-ceiling windows in the sunroom allow for views of the bay. Outside, a large decking area is the perfect spot to dine al fresco.
Tucked away behind electric gates and on a private elevated site of 0.72 acres, this four-bed detached property has instant curb appeal. While in need of some modernisation, the interior is bright and spacious and includes multiple reception rooms, including a drawing room, a dining room and a sunroom.
All four bedrooms are on the first floor, with the master suite being particularly impressive. It boasts a large living area with views of Galway Bay, as well as an en suite bathroom and dressing room. The accommodation also includes a large basement which is accessed externally.
A four-bed detached property of 230 sq m, 8 The Lane comes to the market in turn-key condition. The house, which is located a 15-minute walk from Ratoath village, boasts a modern and stylish interior with features including bay windows, wood flooring and an attic conversion.
The open-plan kitchen and dining room is the heart of the home, with quartz counter tops, an antique glass splashback, a window seat and a feature larder press in here. There’s space for a dining table to seat at least six in the dining area, while an archway leads through to the bright sunroom. This in turn opens on to the garden, which features a hot tub, included in the sale.
Measuring 372 sq m and overlooking a beautiful lake, this five-bed home is a highly impressive property. Built in 1999, the residence was designed to maximise the use of natural light throughout, with floor-to-ceiling windows across two floors demonstrating this.
The ground floor accommodation comprises a drawing room, a formal dining room, a sunroom, a family room, a utility room and the kitchen. A large bay window in the sunroom provides magnificent views of the lake and surrounding mature trees, while a large paved patio is accessed from here. There are five bedrooms on the first floor, with an en suite bathroom extending from two.
