DescriptionTranquilla is a beautiful family home ideally situated on a large, elevated and fully-serviced site a little after the 'First Sea road' on the Strandhill road near Sligo town (Eircode F91 P9W2; https://bit.ly/2F0WalB). It has stunning panoramic views (described below); a large mature landscaped garden including a small apple and gooseberry orchard; and contains extensive accommodations including three bedrooms on the ground floor, and two attic rooms also used as bedrooms at the top of a wrought iron spiral staircase.
AccommodationTranquilla has an unusually large garden for the Strandhill road (0.41 acres), and this offers high potential to extend the current dwelling or to build a second dwelling for a parent/child. Outline planning permission has already been recently granted by Sligo Co. Council to build a separate dwelling on the eastern 'orchard' portion of the property (0.15 acres).
Tranquilla also features: a D2 energy rating; access to superfast 1GB fibre broadband (https://bit.ly/2D8vgW6); a spacious hallway with a stain-glass window and matching stain-glass light fittings: high ceilings throughout the ground floor; a living room with an ornate fireplace and beautiful views; a south-facing conservatory to the rear, off a spacious kitchen/living area with an ornate fireplace and stain-glass window; a gym/utility room that has its own entrance; one ground-floor bathroom and one attic-toilet; a traditional aluminium-framed glass greenhouse (in need of minor repairs); a pebble-dashed shed including the central heating boiler (2.7 by 3 metres); a car-port; a large well-concealed workshop shed (3.6 by 6 metres).
To the front, Tranquilla commands panoramic views sweeping from Copes Mountain in Calry where the sun rises, on past Glencar Valley and Benbulben to splendid sunsets behind the well-wooded Cummeen hill in the west with Strandhill beyond. Indeed, part of Sligo bay is visible, and just beyond this Donegal's famous Slieve League sea cliffs are regularly prominent beside Benbulben on clear days. To the rear, is a large field that rises off to a tree-lined horizon; and to the west, Knocknarea is also clearly visible beyond the ancient Carrowmore Megalithic tomb complex.
Tranquilla is on Sligo's 'S2' frequent service city bus route (https://bit.ly/2I5Mfx3); and is only a 7 minute cycle to O'Connell street (https://bit.ly/2KDVoP9) and a 20 minute cycle to Strandhill (https://bit.ly/2KDVoP9) via dedicated bicycle lanes in both directions. This route contains multiple amenities such as the County Sligo GAA Centre of Excellence, Sligo Rugby Club, Sligo Surf Club, Voya Seaweed baths, Strandhill golf & soccer clubs, Sligo Airport & Business park, Scoil Ursula Primary School and Sligo train/bus station. Even nearer is Gibraltar Rocks seaside cove (see pictures https://bit.ly/2WyA30x); the newly developed Mitchell Curley exercise and sports park with an outdoor gym, playground, and basketball courts (see pictures https://bit.ly/2WXkf85) -- both are just a three-minute cycle away (https://bit.ly/2IvTjlB and https://bit.ly/2Zj6ZXX). Gaeilscoil Chnoc na Ré (http://ww2.cnocnare.net/), St. Mary's GAA club, and Sligo Rovers' Showgrounds are just a 6 minute cycle away (https://bit.ly/2WB6awD and https://bit.ly/2wMAyVr). Then a little farther, Sligo Horse Riding School/Arena (https://www.keyinstitute.org/) and the Carrowmore tourist centre (https://bit.ly/2ZcLqrW) are just a 13 minute cycle away (https://bit.ly/2IztD7J).
