WE ALL HAVE to play our part in looking after the planet, from the running of our homes to our workplaces to our day-to-day lives.

This week we’re looking at four homes around the country with eco-friendly solar panels – from a four-bed in Co Cork to two houses for the price of one in Co Waterford.

Rochestown, Co Cork – €720,000

One of just 33 detached properties in the Monswood development, No 12 is a highly attractive four-bed family home. Built in 1997, it benefits from many recent modern additions including solar panels and an electric car charger.

Inside, the heart of the home is the open-plan kitchen, living and dining area. Floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors fill the room with natural light, with 500 sq ft of space for dining, cooking, entertaining and unwinding in here. To the rear, there’s a well-appointed patio and lawn area.
