4 of a kind: Homes with spacious workshops for DIY lovers

From a modern five-bed in Louth to a Wicklow property that dates back to the 1800s.

IF YOU SPEND your free time mending, building or up-cycling, you’ve probably dreamed about having a dedicated space to do so. 

This week we’re looking at four properties around the country with spacious workshops – from a modern five-bed in Louth to a Wicklow property that dates back to the 1800s.

Drogheda, Co Louth – €695,000

A striking property from the outset, this five-bed contemporary residence is more than just a home. The accommodation includes a home office, gym, games room and sauna, as well as a double garage with a workshop and parking for three cars. 

Originally a bungalow, a complete rebuild in 2008 transformed the property into what it stands as today. It measures an impressive 4,120 sq ft, with features including underfloor heating, vaulted ceilings, granite flooring and a balcony in the master bedroom. Outside, there’s a large decking area and a lawn.

Ashford, Co Wicklow – €485,000

Located on a 1.5 acre site in the Wicklow countryside, The Arches is a charming property with plenty to like. It was once part of the Glanmore Estate and dates back to the early 1800s, meaning there’s no shortage of character throughout its 2,238 sq ft. 

The accommodation includes four bedrooms and two reception rooms, as well as a detached workshop which is divided into two. The south-facing gardens at The Arches are highly impressive, with a wide variety of fruit trees, shrubs and flowerbeds. There are a number of outbuildings and stables on the site, as well as an original slate-stone archway.
