4 of a kind: Homes with playrooms to keep little ones busy

Four family-ready properties in Clare, Meath and more.

IF YOU HAVE kids, you’ll likely know the struggle of having Lego, dolls and toys dotted throughout every room in the house. This is where the appeal of a playroom comes in. It’s a base for your kids, and for their bits and pieces too (most of the time).

This week we’re looking at four homes around the country with spaces that’d make ideal playrooms – from a modern four-bed in Athea to a home in the peaceful Clare countryside.

Athea, Co Limerick – €325,000

Situated in the heart of Athea village, this four-bed family home boasts numerous attractive features. It was completely renovated and extended in 2015, making for a bright and spacious property with a modern and homely touch.

On the ground floor, the kitchen, diner and living room is open plan, while there’s also a spacious room to the side, currently used as a playroom. Externally, the garage has been converted into a home gym and is surrounded by 0.51 acres of mature lawns, a patio and a separate courtyard.
