Town&Country: Large suburban family home or idyllic waterside property

 

TOWN

Address: 21 Finsbury Park, Churchtown, Dublin 14
Agent: Sherry FitzGerald
This double-fronted five-bedroom home has a generous amount of space. Extending to 174sq m (1,880sq ft) with a further 30sq m (322sq ft) in the converted attic – currently used as a sixth bedroom – the semi-detached house is light-filled and in turn-key condition. Its location, close to a number of well-established primary and secondary schools, golf courses and the Dundrum Luas stop will tick many boxes for families seeking a home in Dublin 14.
Plus: Turn-key condition with great space
Minus: The rear garden has no lawn

COUNTRY

Address: The Turquoise House, Reengaroga Island, Baltimore, Co Cork
Agent: Charles McCarthy Auctioneers
Set in a stunning location on Reengaroga Island, which is now connected via a bridge to the mainland, this five-bedroom, 227sq m (2,443sq ft) house has an idyllic setting in west Cork. With high vaulted ceilings and lots of space for a large family, the property overlooks Roaringwater Bay, which is famous for its mussels and outdoor pursuits and is considered to have some of the best sailing waters. The location is designated a Special Area of Conservation for wildlife habitats.
Plus: Idyllic location overlooking the water
Minus: Gardens that extend to an acre could do with more plantings.
