Three spacious family homes available to buy in Waterford

Nestled in Ireland’s sunny southeast, Waterford is Ireland’s oldest city. It was founded by the Vikings over a thousand years ago, and parts of its ancient history still remain today.

But Waterford’s history is just one of its draws. Not only does the city offer critically acclaimed restaurants and stylish boutiques, but its surrounding countryside also provides beautiful views to all those who visit.

If a visit isn’t enough and you’d like to make Waterford your home, have a look at these three properties available to buy right now.

The Achorage, Ballylaneen, Kilmacthomas – €245,000

Originally a 1970’s cottage, this bungalow in Ballylaneen has been tastefully extended over the years and is presented in turn-key condition.

Spanning 2,200 square feet, it has three spacious bedrooms and two large bathrooms; perfect for family living.

The living room has a double-height ceiling and large windows, making the space feel bright and airy. It’s also fitted with a large wood-burning stove for cold, winter days.

Meanwhile, the kitchen features all mod-cons and beautiful views of the surrounding fields.

Other notable features include: a utility room with sink unit, a third-of-an-acre of private land, and recently rewired electrics.

5 Radharc na Mara, Ring, Dungarvan – €379,000

Built on elevated ground with distant views of Dungarvan Bay, this impressive property in Ring is worth serious consideration. The house boasts four double bedrooms, two of which have built-in wardrobes; as well as three bathrooms.

Not only is there a spacious living room for the whole family to relax in, but there is also a similarly-sized sun lounge. The kitchen, meanwhile, is the heart of the home. Fitted with integrated appliances, it offers lots of room for cooking, dining and space for kids to do homework.

Outside, there are gates providing a safe place for children to play, as well as a sun patio to the side. Dungarvan town centre is just a 10-minute drive away, while the house is a stone’s throw from the primary and secondary schools in Ring.

103 Viewmount Park, Waterford City – €395,000

This house at 103 Viewmount Park has four generous bedrooms, all of which come with an ensuite. There’s also a separate family bathroom which can be accessed via the hall; perfect for when entertaining.

What’s more, an open-plan kitchen-cum-dining area can also be used as a lounge. With a fuel-burning stove and TV port (not to mention plenty of space for furniture) it’s a cosy spot for the family to get together at the end of the day. That being said, a separate living room is located off the hall should anyone need their own space.

Beyond the house, there is an outdoor BBQ area and block-built garage (both of which have power access). There’s also parking space for up to three cars and a well-kept, landscaped garden.
