4 of a kind: Spacious bungalows for low-maintenance living

Clever design touches mean these one-storey homes are anything but flat.

SINGLE-STORY HOMES ARE having a something of a moment, springing up not just in the traditional rural locations, but closer to cities as well.

Bungalows make a smart choice for families with young kids, thanks to their safety, space and an often open-plan design.

Plus, with no stairs or additional levels to keep clean, they’re pretty handy in terms of maintenance too.

Here are four of our favourites on the market right now…

Kenmare, Co Kerry

Renovated just last year, this three-bedroom home features 2.4 acres of grounds that include a multitude of extras. There are paddocks, farm lands, a stream and a pond to enjoy within the gardens, as well as a large garage with loft storage.

Inside, the home boasts a contemporary fitted kitchen, bright and inviting sunroom and bedrooms featuring solid oak flooring.

Derrylough is on sale for €230,000.
