These family homes are ideal for those who may have to commute to the city, but want more living space

For many, city life has lost part of its allure and a move to the commuter belt would allow more room, something we’re all craving at the moment. Or perhaps you have finally got your deposit together. Here are some gorgeous homes with gardens, large bedrooms and room for a home office or study.


The Cove, Maydenhayes, Mornington, Co Meath

This five bedroom detached house offers an airy living area, a large study, and a garden with plentiful space for kids to play. This home is perfect for large families, to spend time together but also to enjoy downtime and relax. With two ensuite bedrooms with walk in wardrobes, there should be no hassle with storage, or queues for the bathroom on busy mornings.
