On a quarter of an acre, with gardens front and back, this four-bedroom bungalow measures 150sq m (1,614sq ft). On the ground floor is a sittingroom, kitchen, dining area, four bedrooms (one en suite) and a bathroom. The long rear garden, with lawn, shrubs and trees, faces south. BER E2.


Location: swish area with plenty of amenities, from coffee to schools. The gardens front and back and the southerly aspect.


It’s showing its age a little. The bathroom is not the biggest and the kitchen and dining area could be opened up.

Address: Kilpeacon House, Crecora, Co Limerick Agent: Colliers

Coming with 34 acres, this Georgian-style 19th century house by architect Richard Morrison has kept its original features, including ornate plasterwork and marble fireplaces. A tree-lined avenue cuts through parkland, past a gate house and up to the house. Seven miles from Limerick, the six-bedroom, 557sq m (6,000sq ft) house is entered via an oval hall. On the ground floor is a sittingroom, diningroom, drawingroom, study, cloakroom, kitchen, breakfastroom, pantry, bathroom and bedroom. The five other bedrooms are on the first floor and there is also a large basement. BER exempt.


A substantial country pile with period features intact.


BER exempt, brrrrr. That’s 6,000 sq ft of space to heat.
