A CHARMING, UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFULLY SITUATED SCANDINAVIAN STYLE 3 BEDROOM DETACHED LOG CABIN SET ON A SITE OF 0.6 ACRES WITH PANORAMIC VIEWS OF THE TWELVE BENS AND WITHIN 100 METERS OF THE SEA.

Constructed in the late 1970ís this beautifully situated timber style cabin imported from Finland offers buyers a rare opportunity to reside in Ballyconnelly in a unique yet charming property. The property now comes to the market for the first time in over 25 years and internal viewing is essential to fully appreciate this lovely home.

The house is completely constructed of cedar wood logs under a concrete tile roof with relatively new double glazing throughout. Although circa 30 years old, the house is in great condition and has a lovely warm homely feel to it. The property benefitted from a completely new roof this year. There are vented areas beside most windows and the benefit of the wooden construction ensures that the property retains the heat very well but also stays cool in the summer. The property benefits from fabulous coastal views from most rooms and is situated on a lovely cul de sac road leading down to the sea shore. There is an additional inlet close by where a kayak or small boat could be launched. The property is being sold with carpets and curtains included and most of the other contents may be available by separate negotiation. Ballyconneely village is nearby with a range of shops, local pub, and church. The internationally famed Connemara Golf links course is within 2 miles of the property. Clifden is regarded as the Capital of Connemara, with banks and a large selection of shops, pubs, and other leisure facilities. Clifden is noted for many fine seafood restaurants, the Connemara Pony Show, and the Clifden Arts Festival in September, all of which attract many Irish and foreign visitors.
