This bright five-bed is on sale for €525,000.


A PICTURE IS certainly worth a thousand words when it comes to buying a house and this birds-eye view is proof that location and design are two of this one’s biggest selling points. 

A 215 m² home with panoramic views of the River Suir that runs through Co Waterford, this five-bed family home in Carrigeen sits on an elevated site just a short drive north of Waterford city and minutes from the M9.

Now on the market for €525,000, it comes with a surrounding .75 acres and makes the most of the sunny southeast. This is a cleverly orientated home thanks to an architect that helped build it.


The ground floor is where most of the rooms reside with the sitting room and dining room side-by-side but separated by a half partition. The ceiling is slanted as steps from the hallway lead down to the lounge area.

Along the wall dot large windows and a set of double doors from the dining room to the back garden. The space is light-filled and offers great river views.

The kitchen, although tucked away from the larger light-filled rooms, is connected to the sunroom, a space that’s a far cry from the glass-clad, and therefore overheated, sunrooms we often see in Ireland. Tastefully decorated with views of the front and back of the house, a large skylight illuminates the space instead.

The ground floor also comprises a separate utility room, a bathroom and a guest toilet, as well as two of the five bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has an en suite and a walk-in wardrobe, while the other has its own access to the outdoors.  The three remaining bedrooms and a bathroom sit upstairs.

For the hybrid or remote worker, a large office with its own entrance is useful for keeping work and family lives separate when needed. 


The garden that encompasses this unique home is filled with native Irish trees and shrubs and has a lawned area as well as a vegetable and herb garden. Seating is already dotted around the grounds of this wonderfully located home, allowing anyone who buys it to relax and take in the views before they even unpack.
