AS FAMILIES GROW and needs change, being able to adapt your property by converting the attic can offer endless possibilities.

This week we’re looking at four properties around the country with converted attics that are ready for use as an extra bedroom, home office or walk-in wardrobe – from a luxurious four-bed in Co Cork to a refurbished property in Dublin.

Ballincollig, Co Cork – €775,000

A four-bed property, 46 Fernwalk comes to the market in turn-key condition. Spanning 2,829 sq ft, the house has been extended and renovated to create a luxurious and welcoming family home. As part of the renovation, the attic was converted into two large rooms, making for the perfect space to set up a den, home office or workout space.

There are numerous high quality features and finishes throughout, including solid walnut flooring, a bespoke teak staircase and a fully fitted designer kitchen. The rear garden is beautifully landscaped, with a neat lawn and raised patio area.
