Snap up the last of these spacious family homes in Portlaoise

Under an hour away from Dublin and near a bustling town for around €330k.

FOR THOSE LOOKING to get onto the property ladder, Foxburrow in Portlaoise is a great first step. In fact, there is only one house left in the second phase, which proves many other buyers have the same idea.

This phase includes the Kensington house type – large four-bed homes that span 1,362 sq ft (about 150 m²). No. 6 Foxburrow is semi-detached with a brick facade and space for up to two cars on its doorstep.

Inside, the kitchen is the ideal size for people who love to entertain. A central island with quartz countertops make sure it’s a social yet practical space.

There’s plenty of storage in the form of wall hung units and even a pantry press. All appliances are included too.

The kitchen/dining room leads to the back garden and the beauty of this one is that there are no other properties in direct view, which means more privacy. 

A separate utility room off the kitchen ensures cooking and laundry can be kept separate and streamlined.

Joining this kitchen on the ground floor is a sitting room to the front that’s bathed in light thanks to a large window. There is also a downstairs WC.

The first floor is home to the four bedrooms. The largest has a wardrobe that stretches across one wall and an en suite bathroom.

There’s also a family bathroom on this floor. The space doesn’t end here, however. The attic is also fully floored with a ceiling high enough so you can walk around – ideal for a home office or more storage space if needed.

Portlaoise offers a great mix of town and country life. The development is located on the Block Road between the Dublin and Stradbally Roads. Schools, shops and parks all live close by while countryside walks are just short drives away.

You can get to Dublin within the hour by car or train, so those hybrid working with offices in the city can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Number 6 Foxburrow is on the market with Hume Auctioneers via Daft.ie and is priced from €330,000.
