Moran Auctioneers are delighted to bring to the market ‘Drifting Leaf’ – a unique detached 4-bed residence located just outside the idyllic village of Clonbur in County Galway. The property occupies a site of 0.88 acres in the heart of Connemara’s angling country, between the two Great Lakes of Lough Mask and Lough Corrib and is adjacent to Clonbur woodland and walking/cycling trails.

Designed in a contemporary manner by the current owners (artists/designers) the house and gardens have a unique flow. Mature landscaped gardens with stunning views of Mount Gable merge seamlessly into a small bio-diversity meadow at the rear.

Completed in 2005, ‘Drifting Leaf’ extends to 2,378.8 sq. ft (221 sq. m), has many unique features and is filled with light and space. Open-plan design provides a warm and inviting layout with great flexibility and the opportunity for the perfect life-work balance – one spacious room is currently set up as a home office. Meticulously maintained and presented, this beautiful home is ready to move into. From the French doors, walk out into a south-facing courtyard (perfect for leisurely breakfasts) and step up to the wide raised veranda which is ideal for outdoor dining and entertaining. Secret garden areas, laurel bowers and mown meadow paths offer mystery and adventure for adults and children alike.

The house is five minutes’ walk to a wide range of local amenities and services (schools, churches, Lakelands Medical Centre, hotel, restaurants, pubs, artisan bakery, Petersburg Adventure Centre, horse-riding) and there is mooring for boats and fishing just minutes away at Lough Mask. A six-minute drive will take you to Cong with its 12th Century Abbey and Ashford Castle. This former home of the Guinness family is now Ireland\’s only five-star Forbes hotel with a beautiful golf course, equestrian centre and School of Falconry. Only 45 minutes drive to Galway city, 58 mins to Knock Airport, 90 mins to Shannon, and under three hours to Dublin Airport.
