This unique property was a mid 1930’s cottage that was completely renovated and a 2 storey extension added in 1997. A 2 bedroom self-contained unit was added in 2001. The house is on a site of over one acre of beautiful natural gardens with shoreline frontage and a floating Jetty onto Grange lough and the River Shannon system.
Entering the house you are greeted by a beautiful mosaic glass art by Michelle O’Donnell of Glasshammer studios, which depicts the views of water and mature trees that feature here. The dining area is the heart of this house with views over the water and access out onto the deck area. There is a wood panelled ceiling and Stanley oil range surrounded by a brick hearth giving a very warm feel. The kitchen which is open to the dining area has built in units and a high ceiling. A spiral staircase allows access to a dormer office area, ideal for the remote worker. There is a utility area plumbed for washing machine & dryer that links to the two storey extension and the self-contained 2 bed.

There is a family bathroom on this level and on the lower split level there is a shower room with a high ceiling. These serve the two bedrooms on the lower floor level, the largest of which has the same rear views as the sitting room over the garden & water and two large window panels open for direct access. The master bedroom is to the front of the house in the original cottage and beautifully appointed and spacious with an ensuite and built in wardrobes and has a dual aspect ensuring brightness throughout the day.

Out front the garden is kept neat and low maintenance with some careful planting and decorative stone. There is a double sized detached garage and storage shed. The remaining gardens are mainly laid in lawns but also feature a wild flower garden, fantastic tree house with its own little deck area and views of the water. and a natural stone feature close to the shoreline makes for another beautiful seating area in the evening sun. There is a long established cut that provides a sheltered berthing space with floating Jetty from Banagher Pre-cast.
The property is on the banks of Grange Lough close to the canal link to Kilglass Lough.
