4 of a kind: Homes with conservatories for your daily dose of sunshine
From a fairytale hideaway in Co Kerry to an open-plan beauty in Malahide.

A CONSERVATORY IS A charming addition to any home, adding space, light and (in summer, anyway) heat to existing spaces.

A large conservatory or sunroom can double the existing living accomodation of a property, so they’re useful for growing families too.

If you like the sound of that extra space – and a regular sunshine fix – here are four properties that fit the bill. Plus, they’re all on the market right now…

Malahide, Co Dublin

Located in the heart of Malahide, this four-bedroom dormer bungalow is close to the action, while still retaining a country feel. There are three reception rooms here, so there is plenty of space for relaxing or entertaining.

The most impressive feature is surely the Hamptons of Portrush-designed conservatory, which features stylish recessed lighting and a wood-burning stove.

It’s on sale for €1,300,000.

Oughterard, Co Galway

Situated on over ten acres of woodland, Eglington House is perched on the shores of Lough Corrib, offering panoramic views to its new owner. Gardens to the front and rear, plus a long gravel driveway, all offer a sense of total privacy and seclusion from the outside world.

The four-bedroom home was completely refurbished in 2016, and offers plenty of space, including a separate office with a dual aspect. The sun-drenched conservatory features floor-to-ceiling glass, and leads out onto a south-facing patio.

Offers open at €695,000.
