DescriptionANNAGH COTTAGE & LODGE, KILMORE, CO. ROSCOMMON
A charming lakeside resort with a period cottage and modern lodge set within some 8.35 acres or 3.4 hectares of private grounds and complete with a private harbour and boat slip-way.
Positioned on the western shores of Lough Boderg a large harbour and a separate slip-way provide easy boat access direct onto the lake. Lough Boderg, a substantial lake of some 3,000 acres or 1,200 hectares on the River Shannon, affords good boating and fishing. Lough Boderg is noted for Bream and holds good quality Rudd, Roach and Perch. Together with Lough Tap to its North and Lough Bofin to its South, Lough Boderg forms the centrepiece of a chain of large, varied and navigable waters that are a key part of the renowned Shannon
Navigation, the River Shannon being 224 miles or 360 km long and largely navigable along its length. The North Shannon Yacht Club is based on Lough Boderg.
Annagh Cottage pleasantly overlooks the harbour and comprises some c.1636 square feet or c.152 square metres of accommodation, which includes a large open plan living room, a kitchen, games room, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. It has a great period character with a large open fireplace and timber panelled ceilings and tremendous lake views. Facing southeast the cottage overlooks the private harbour and onward to Lough Boderg itself.
Annagh Lodge is positioned a little further back from the lake nearby to the top of the boat slip-way.

It also enjoys a large detached garage. Being privately positioned within some 8.35 acres or 3.4 hectares "Annagh" provides a great sense of tranquility within both houses and great amenity for pleasure walks and such like within the grounds, which are partly in lawn and partly in grazing pasture. The lands are interspersed with trees and mature hedgerows, which provide an added sense of calm and provide added privacy. Whilst being sold together the layout of the lands and position of the house could easily accommodate division into 2 smaller holdings, each with a house and each with access to the lake.
