4 of a kind: Homes with wood-burning stoves for cold winter nights

From a three-bed in Co Meath to a unique property in Co Kilkenny.

AS THE DAYS get shorter and the nights become longer, sitting by a blazing fire is one of the best ways to unwind in the evening.

This week we’re looking at four properties around the country with wood-burning stoves – from a three-bed in Co Meath to a unique property in Co Kilkenny.

Enfield, Co Meath – €249,950

A three-bed semi-detached property, 5 Coachyard Manor is an ideal family home. It’s located in a quiet cul de sac which overlooks a green area, while there are schools, shops and restaurants within walking distance. Enfield train station is a 10-minute walk away.

No 5 comes complete with a large designer kitchen and spacious dining area, where double doors open to the paved rear garden. This open-plan space also leads to the living room, where there’s a brick feature fireplace and a wood-burning stove. The attic at No 5 has been converted for use as a fourth bedroom.
