Bungalow House

For Sale



40 sq.m.


Welcome to a little piece of heaven! This most charming residence comes with views that can be described as truly breathtaking! Sitting facing onto Loch Corrib with uninterrupted lake views & access & in immaculate condition this surely can only be described as a dream home.

Originally built in the 1850's - significant upgrades have, of course, taken place over the years at the south facing cottage with new roof, heating system, bathroom, modern plumbing etc.
Located on Inishmacatreer island & accessed via a causeway which gives 24/365 access to the island.
- it is approx 45 mins to Galway & to Knock International airport, 10 mins to Cong, Ashford Castle & Headford & would make an ideal family home or indeed a holiday home. Planning has been granted for a substantial 2 bedroom & bathroom extension (lapsed in 2018)
Accommodation is as follows: double height vaulted ceilings in open plan lounge with dining area, oil fired stove, dual access to both the front & rear of the property. Modern bathroom with bath & new electric power shower plus laundry/utility area with new AAA washing machine. Useful mezzanine storage area above bathroom/laundry room.

A kitchen with all requisite appliances, which include new AAA fridge, electric cooker & hob are included in the sale.
The double bedroom also comes with vaulted ceiling & windows to both front and rear of the residence. There was originally a mezzanine floor in the bedroom which could easily be reinstated.

The residence benefits from vaulted double height rooms, tastefully decorated rustic interior (albeit with all the conveniences of modern day living) Also, it comes with UPVC windows & new glazed UPVC doors.

Externally the property sits on 0.25 acre with large barn for covered car parking/ summer kitchen. There is an outdoor eating area & fireplace/BBQ. The panoramic views of lake, sky & mountains are truly breath taking, changing constantly from dawn ‘til dusk they are peaceful & instantly calming. Literally 30 seconds stroll from the property is a private jetty with boat access to lagoon/lake.

The property has never flooded & is currently fully insured. The mains electric supply with Electric Ireland &the central heating is oil fired. There is a separate 7 years old septic tank,
Water is provided by a lake water pump system & there is a separate immersion heater for hot water

This is a rare opportunity to purchase an island cottage with causeway access to the mainland in turn key condition for under €200k. I guarantee it will be quickly snapped up by either an owner occupier, as a holiday home, shrewd investor, builder with a view to undertaking the extension or as a haven for boating/fishing enthusiast.
