Finea Lodge, built circa 2008/09, is set within approximately 2 acres (with an option of an additional 22 acres with lake frontage onto Lough Kinale). Only 0.75 miles/1km from the village of Finea, on the Cavan / Westmeath border and only 1Â½ hrs from Dublin, making it a great place for a weekend retreat as well as a family home.
Built circa 2008/09 the interior of the house is completed to a builders finish, with the scope to create a spacious home very evident. The ground floor comprises of 2 reception rooms (1 of which is suitable for open fires), a large kitchen with a sun room and dining area, a wide entrance hall, a study, utility area, wc and a double garage. On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms, (1 having an ensuite bathroom) and a main bathroom. There is also a very large attic space that can potentially be made into 2 further bedrooms, subject to any necessary permissions.
Being at the builders finish stage allows huge scope for a successful buyer to make the house very much their own, and would be ideal for a family who enjoy fishing, shooting, horse keeping, with wonderful privacy to boot and an extended shoreline which includes a natural boat jetty (included within the additional 22 acres).
Lough Kinale is on the Cavan, Westmeath and Longford borders, close to the village of Finea. It has been designated a special area of conservation. The whole of Lough Kinale is very important for waterfowl and coarse fishing and is connected to Lough Sheelin (which is noted for its Brown Trout), through the River Inny. Lough Kinale sustains important populations of Mute Swan, Pochard, Tufted Duck, Wigeon, Coot, as well as many other species. The adjoining wetland areas provide ideal shelter and feeding for Golden Plover, Lapwing and Curlew species. Large numbers of Starlings land in the reed beds in the evenings, creating amazing formation scenes or murmarations. The lake also is a highly desirable area for fishing and produces good stocks of Roach, Bream, Eel, and Pike.
