IF YOU HATE the feeling of cold floors during the winter months, underfloor heating could be the solution to your problem.
This week we’re looking at four properties around the country with underfloor heating for cold winter mornings – from a modern three-bed in Cabinteely to a light-filled property in West Cork.
A three-bed property, 3 Cabinteely Avenue is a modern and spacious family home. It comes to the market in turn-key condition, with a kitchen, living and dining room extension, as well as a family room and a playroom. Double doors open to the south-facing rear garden, where there are two decking areas.
There’s underfloor heating in the open-plan area, as well as in the downstairs bathroom. On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, a single bedroom and the family bathroom. There are several schools within walking distance, while the M50 is less than a 10-minute drive away.
Set on four acres of beautiful grounds within the Glengarriff Woods Nature Reserve, Coorannel House boasts a feeling of tranquility throughout its 3,090 sq ft. Built in 2008, the three-bed property is designed to be eco-friendly, with features including solar panels, underfloor heating and energy efficient glazing.
The exterior of the house is finished in a mixture of slate and glass, with picture windows throughout allowing in views of the surrounding forest and the Caha Mountains. The kitchen, living and dining area is the perfect spot to enjoy these views, while oak floors and a large feature fireplace add a cosy feel.
Located a 20-minute walk from Sligo town centre, 18 Marymount is a light-filled family home. It features a spacious kitchen, dining and living area, with polished porcelain tiled floors and underfloor heating here. There’s also a separate living room and an office on the ground floor.
To the rear, the garden is landscaped and features a manicured lawn and patio area. There are three double bedrooms on the first floor, with an en suite bathroom extending from the master bedroom, and a family bathroom with a jacuzzi bath.
A detached property, this L-shaped four-bedroom home is equally impressive inside and out. Set on half an acre of beautiful gardens, the bungalow has been extended and remodelled by its current owners to create a light-filled modern home. Stepping inside, the heart of the property is the main living room, complete with vaulted ceilings and wall-to-wall glass folding doors.
There’s a solid fuel stove in here, while the windows overlook an L-shaped fish pool and the west-facing patio area. There’s access from here to the split-level kitchen, living and dining room, where double doors open to a a large east-facing decking area. Kilkenny city is a quick 15-minute drive away.
