4 of a kind: Family homes with beautiful attic conversions for extra space

From a five-bed in Mount Merrion to a three-bed in Wexford town.

WITH THE OPTION to be used as a bedroom, home office or den, among other things, attic conversions make great use of extra space. 

This week, we’re looking at homes around the country that feature completed attic conversions – from a five-bed in Mount Merrion to a three-bed in Wexford town.

Mount Merrion, south Dublin – €1,595,000 

A detached five-bed, 7 Mather Road North has been extended and renovated over the years. The interior is light-filled and well-proportioned throughout its 3,024 sq ft, which is made clear from the moment you step through the front door. The L-shaped kitchen is fitted with cream units and boasts an abundance of storage and space for a large dining table, while the living room runs the depth of the house.

A standout feature of the property, dual staircases lead from the first floor to the converted attic. On one side, there’s a large double bedroom with timber ceiling panels and Velux windows, while on the other size there are two attic rooms with dormer windows. There’s a great selection of primary and secondary schools close by, while UCD is a 20-minute walk away.
