4 of a Kind: Homes across the country complete with EV chargers

From a three-bed in Delgany, Co Wicklow to a five-bed in Kells, Co Meath.

FOR ANYONE WHO has or is planning to make the switch to a greener option when it comes to the car they drive, a home with a charger already installed is sure to appeal.

This week, we’ve found four homes across the country that have electric vehicle chargers set up, so all any new homeowner need to do is plug in their car and do their extra bit for the environment.

Delgany, Co Wicklow – €590,000

9 Archer’s Wood Drive is a three-bed home that spans 119 m² and is made up of a living room, with an open kitchen and dining area, utility room and a guest toilet on the ground floor. One of the three bedrooms upstairs has an en suite bathroom while the others share the family bathroom. The double bedrooms have large built-in wardrobes. The attic is fully floored and has huge storage potential to keep the main house clutter free. 

There’s a Zappi EV car charger to the front of this home. The back garden is south-facing and has a newly added patio area. Side access to the front of the property makes garden access easy. The Wicklow village of Greystones is a walk away while the DART will have you in Dublin in less than an hour if you decide to leave the car charging at home.
