Featured Properties

If you’re hunting for a home that has maximised its spaces with stunning extensions, then you should check out the properties we’ve compiled below. 


A garden room, a kitchen/dining/living area to the rear and an additional bedroom and office are among the few.  Some of these even have more space to extend further!


#1 Corrandulla, Galway



The Roundhouse — Corrandulla, Galway

Beds: 4

Baths: 2

Price: €650,000


The unique beauty and architecture of this 306 sqm property can be observed even from afar.  Situated in an idyllic countryside setting yet only 15 minutes drive to Galway City. 



What makes it distinct is its accommodations split into three buildings.  The Roundhouse Wing comprises a bathroom with bathtub, cork tiled floor & shower, a master bedroom and a second bedroom, which are all curved and has exposed beams and bricks.  On the first floor is an oval office/studio with WC & WHB. The entrance hall links this Wing to the kitchen/dining area and living room.


Also, the 3.3 acres of land is organically fertilised with no pesticides, which could prove to be a haven for organic gardening and growing enthusiasts.  Two outbuildings to the rear are suitable for a multitude of uses. Or if it pleases the new owner, there’s a lot of space to extend and improve this already spacious home.

Beds: 3

Price: €359,950


There are so many things to love about this pristine home but we are most excited about the extended kitchen/dining/sitting room.



With wooden floors, coving, recessed lighting and roof lights, this open plan space is light-filled and excellent for home entertaining.  It has a feature fireplace in the sitting area.  In the kitchen are a brand-new designer kitchen and island unit with storage, ceramic sink & built-in wine rack, an electric 5-plate induction hob, extractor fan, oven, integrated dishwasher, tiled splashback and double concertina doors leading to the garden.


The southwest-facing suntrap garden is not overlooked and is the perfect spot for alfresco dining.  Located within walking distance to the amenities of Celbridge, one can still enjoy the benefits of tranquil country living.

If you’re looking for an idyllic hideaway home, this upgraded traditional-style cottage will tick the boxes.  Not only will you enjoy the beautifully landscaped gardens from the outside but also view them from inside the newly constructed garden room.

#4 South Circular Road, Dublin



4 O'Carolan Road — South Circular Road, Dublin 8

Beds: 3

Baths: 2

Price: €475,000


This mid-terrace city home has more to offer than meets the eye.  After being lovingly maintained and upgraded, it now flaunts a contemporary finish..



What we really admire about this house is the utility/pantry extension that leads to a well-appointed, contemporary shower room.  The walk-in shower is thermostatic with handheld and rain shower heads.  There’s a wash hand basin on the timber top and a tiled splashback.  In the utility/pantry are storage cupboards, a combi boiler, built-in fridge space and tiled floors.  It is also plumbed for a washing machine.


The open plan living/dining/kitchen features an exposed brick wall, a fully fitted galley kitchen with wooden worktops, timber flooring and French doors to the decked garden, the perfect space to catch the evening sun.  Three beautiful double bedrooms can be found upstairs.  There is a small planted garden, bike storage area and on-street parking to the front.  But if you love walking, the city centre is just a few minutes away.

A picture of perfection from the low-maintenance brick façade to every room inside.  The craftsmanship and quality finishes are throughout.



Accessed via French doors from the main living room is the gorgeous extension to the rear.  Tiled floors, a new galley-style fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, wooden worktops, open shelves and tiled splashback are in the kitchen/dining area.  Meanwhile, flooded with natural light, the rear living space features a vaulted ceiling with roof lights and windows that overlooks the rear garden from all sides.  Double doors lead onto the cobble-locked patio area and lovely gardens.


With a prime location just a short drive north of Kilkenny City, cobble-locked parking and wheelchair access at the front, this can be a forever home!  Just wait until you see the rest of the interiors.
