From a five-bed in Cork to a period property in Clontarf.

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.

Innishannon, Co Cork – €765,000

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.
