This deceptively spacious 4 bedroom detached property is conveniently positioned between Oughterard and Moycullen. The spacious well proportioned accommodation has a light and airy feel to it and benefits from oil fired central heating and Upvc double glazing throughout. Internally the house is decorated tastefully and neutrally, and has full planning permission granted for a 2nd storey extension providing 2 further bedrooms with master having en suite and dressing room. Outside the present owners have invested a great amount of time and effort to create beautiful gardens that surround the property. Internal viewing is highly recommended on this lovely property.

Aughnanure derives its name from Achadh na n-Iubhar, translating to “the field of Yews” as the area has substantial amounts of woodland containing amongst other several Yew trees. The Castle dates back to the 16th Century, is renowned for its double bawn and was thought to of been built by the O’Flaherty’s, and attracts good amounts of visitors each year.

Oughterard is a charming village on the shores of Lough Corrib - the internationally renowned wild brown trout fishery. Known as the gateway to Connemara, Oughterard is well known for its range of shops, pubs and hotels which cater for the large numbers of visitors who come to take advantage of the fishing, walking, boating and other leisure activities for which this village is justly famous. Golf is available at the 18 hole Oughterard golf course, set in natural parkland and there are six other golf courses within an hour's drive.

The property is 14 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 and Knock airports are some 2 hours from the property. Galway Airport is just 40 minutes away with connections to Dublin, Waterford, Luton, Manchester, Edinburgh, and L’Orient.

This property was built in 1995 and has been maintained to an extremely high standard with the exterior being repainted in May 2010. The property is constructed of concrete block with an exterior render under a slate roof, is fully double glazed, and has oil fired central heating throughout. The property has been decorated tastefully and neutrally throughout, with varnished wooden skirting boards, architraves and doors which enhances the property’s warm homely feeling. The property is being sold with floor and window dressings, kitchen appliances as stated and other items are available by separate negotiation.
