We all dream of having the perfect home.
The ideal spot would be somewhere between country life and city life and frankly, Wicklow is the perfect spot to be in to get the best of both worlds with Dublin city not so far away.
We found 5 beautiful homes for just over €1 million if you fancy doing the lotto tonight.
We want to move in to all of these. Right now.
1. Glenside House, Woodstock, Kilquade, Co Wicklow
The beautiful detached Glenside House is on the market and makes the perfect country home with a lot of space and five spacious double bedrooms.
The hallway is almost the entire length of the 357.9 m2 home. And it's really beautiful.
The bungalow is separated into two sections with the living space at the front while the bedrooms (all with en suites) sit at the back, which is perfect for when you would have guests over. Let's face it, if we lived here we would definitely throw a lot of parties.
It has a beautiful country-style kitchen, 3 reception rooms, a formal drawing room, a study, and even a cloakroom and much more.
The gardens themselves are over an acre in size and there's a seated patio section at the back, we can see ourselves hosting summer barbecues.
You can get this all for €1,275,000 and can view more of the property here.
2. Gorseland, Coynes Cross, Ashford, Wicklow
If you've always dreamed of having your own cinema room, a jacuzzi, tennis court and a gym this is your ideal home.
Gorseland sits on huge 2.5 acres of land and the house itself is a staggering 6,700 square feet built in 2007. You can see the sea from the back of the stunningly architecturally designed house as well, bonus!
The house itself is set off a private cul-de-sac and is close to the N11 making it easy to commute in and out of Dublin city. See, you get the best of both worlds. Not only does it have 7 bedrooms which 3 have balconies, but it has a home cinema room, music room, jacuzzi, sauna and shower room and a gym. It even has its own tennis court.
We can picture nothing better than relaxing in the jacuzzi after a workout and then chilling in the cinema room watching a movie. It sounds perfect.
You can buy the house for €1,275,000 and can view the rest of the property here.
3. Millicent Hill, Kilcroney Lane, Enniskerry, Wicklow
The beautiful modern Millicent Hill was built in 1975 and renovated in 2002 and they did a stunning job.
The detached house hosts 5 big bedrooms and would be the ideal family home. It sits on nearly 6 acres of land with amazing gardens and views of the countryside.
We particularly love the long landscape window in the living room that looks out onto the stunning views..
It hosts a nice hallway, a dining room, three double bedrooms, large kitchen, utility room and a pantry.
It looks really pretty.
If you have a spare €1,275,000 (or if you wait until tomorrow it will be €1,150,000) and want to see more of the house you can check it out here.
4. Glendasan, Convent Road, Delgany, Wicklow
Everything about this house, Glendasan, is on a luxury grand scale.
The detached 6 bedroom house has a real homely feel to it and we wouldn't mind spending the rest of our days in it.
We particularly fell in love with the amazing sweeping staircase in the hall entrance. It is stunning.
For those nice sunny days the outdoor courtyard is to die for and with the peace and quiet of the countryside you can easily enjoy a nice brunch out there in utter secluded heaven.
It has a study room, lounge, play room, office, lovely country-style kitchen and even the attic upstairs is converted so if you wanted to make it a games room it could totally work.
If you want to call this your home, you can buy the 6500 ft squared house for €1,500,000. You can view more of the property here.
5. Derkeller, Church Road, Newtownmountkennedy, Wicklow
This stunning 6 bedroom home is perfect if you have a family, or just want a lot of rooms for your friends to stay over.
And the great news is that Derkeller has a bus stop just a short walk away and the Greystones DART station is within a 10 minute drive if you had to commute to and from Dublin. The N11 and M50 are also near by so again, it's the best of both worlds.
The spacious home is 6,600 square feet and even has its very own basement garage. It sits on a 7.5 acre site of land which if you had kids they would have a lot of space to run around and play. Plus, Derkeller even has its own tennis court.
This magnificent family home offers all the advantages of countryside living while also being close to a lot of amenities in the nearby village.
We want this!
It is on the market for €1,650,000 and you can view more of the house here.
