IF YOU’RE LOOKING to improve your home’s energy efficiency – and do your bit to help the planet – having solar panels installed could be the solution.
This week we’re looking at four homes around the country with solar elements, from a five-bed in Cork to a period property in Clontarf.
Coming to the market in turnkey condition, 14 Rosewood Manor is a highly impressive five-bed family home. The accommodation measures 2,560 sq ft, while there’s also a cedar-clad outdoor room in the landscaped garden to the rear.
The interior has a contemporary, eye-catching design, with features including oak flooring, solar powered Velux blinds and a bespoke monochrome kitchen.
Located on a 0.9 acre site in the quiet Cork countryside, this five-bed bungalow has plenty of potential. Spanning 2,500 sq ft, the living accommodation is in excellent condition, but could benefit from some modern upgrades.
To the side of the house, there’s a detached two-storey building which is currently in use as a home office. Macroom is a 20-minute drive away.
A four-bed property with a two-bed separate maisonette to the rear, 49 Howth Road is an ideal family home. The redbrick property boasts a prime location close to both the sea and the city in Clontarf, with the seafront just a five-minute walk away.
It is presented in great condition throughout and benefits from many original features including ornate cornicing, plasterwork and fireplaces.
Tucked away in a quiet cul de sac, 13A Ballywaltrim Cottages is a modern three-bedroom family home. It measures a total of 1,507 sq ft, including the converted attic which is currently used as a large master bedroom suite and home office.
To the rear, there’s a private garden with a south-facing aspect. No 13A is a highly energy efficient property and benefits from an A3 Building Energy Rating (BER).
