4 of a kind: Homes with conservatories for relaxing all summer long

From a dormer bungalow in Letterkenny to a modern four-bed in Co Kildare.

IN IRELAND, THE calendar is rarely a predictable measure of the weather, and even in August, there’s the potential of rain and wind. With a sunroom or conservatory in your house, at least you’ll have somewhere to sit and watch the rainclouds pass – or on sunnier days, you’ll have a place to sit and make the most of natural light.

This week we’re looking at four family homes around the country, each with its own sunroom, from a dormer bungalow in Letterkenny to a modern four-bed in Co Kildare. 

Templeogue, Dublin 6 – €689,000

A four-bed semi-detached property, 29 Cypress Grove Road is an attractive family home with large living areas. Accommodation on the ground floor is designed to flow from one room to the next, with double doors separating the dining room and living room, which in turn leads to the sunroom. 

No 29 may be in need of some modern touches, but wooden floors and large windows provide a timeless foundation for any contemporary additions. The attic has been converted into a home office space of 130 sq ft, with a home steam room located here. Outside, the west-facing garden features a decking and large lawn area, with mature shrubs and trees throughout.

Donadea, Co Kildare – €560,000

Sitting on one acre of professionally landscaped gardens, this four-bed property in Co Kildare enjoys a quiet setting surrounded by agricultural land. The residence was built in 2005 and was completely renovated three years ago, meaning it comes to the market in turn-key condition.

The property measures an impressive 3,200 sq ft, including a basement of 700 sq ft. There are countless high quality furnishings and features throughout, including marble flooring, wood flooring and solid oak hand-painted units in the kitchen. The first floor is dedicated entirely to the master suite, which comprises a large bedroom, dressing room and en suite bathroom.
