SITUATION AND AMENITIES: Clifden, the nearest town and only 1 mile away, is regarded as the Capital of Connemara, with banks and a large selection of shops, pubs, and other leisure facilities. Clifden is noted for its many fine seafood restaurants, the famous Connemara Pony Show which takes place there each August in the showground close to the property, and the Clifden Arts Festival in September, all of which attract many Irish and foreign visitors. The area is well provided for a wide range of sporting and leisure facilities, with fishing, boating and water sports most popular using the many beaches and bays which comprise this convoluted coastline. Golf is available at the Connemara Golf Club whilst there are six other courses within an hour`s drive of the property.
The property is 50 miles from the regional capital of the West, Galway City, with its mainline road, rail and air connections and extensive and substantial cultural, commercial and retail facilities. Shannon Airport is some 2 1/2 hours from the property and Knock airport is 1.5 hours.
THE HOUSE: The property was constructed in 1984 and is of block with cavity construction with a rendered exterior under a concrete tile roof and provides circa 116 square meters of accommodation. The property is approached by a gated entrance with ample parking to the front and side, the gardens are primarily laid to lawn around the house. To the rear, the garden is sloped with informal terraces which provide fabulous viewing platforms for the stunning scenery surrounding the property. There is a variety of raised beds and borders and a choice of shrubs and bushes providing colour all year long. The property itself is unique in style with a slightly Mediterranean feel with arches and bay windows to the front. Planning permission was granted in 2009 for a further 34.5 square meters (porch, lounge / sunroom and further double bedroom) but this was never constructed. The property benefits from oil fired central heating throughout and is being sold with the contents included.
