Constructed in the 1970’s and completely renovated in the early 2000’s, this fabulous family home offers luxurious and spacious bright well-proportioned rooms throughout. With fabulous views from virtually all windows of the property, the living accommodation takes advantage of this, as does the master bedroom. The property is of block construction with a rendered exterior under a concrete tile roof and is fully alarmed throughout. There is accommodation comprising of inner hall, living room, kitchen dining room (being divided by a glass wall with oak framing and doors, thus allowing light to fill the house) conservatory, study, 4 double bedrooms with master en suite and dressing room, a second en suite double room and family bathroom. To the rear of the property there is a covered walk way which benefits from good light and provides access to the boiler house and garage. The property has oil fired central heating and double glazed windows and doors throughout, with upgrades of additional cavity wall insulation and attic insulation. The property is being sold with curtains and carpets included.

Oughterard also known as the "Gateway to Connemara" and the "Brown Trout" capital of Europe is a friendly village which has grown substantially in size over the past few years. Visitors and locals are well catered for with a good range of shops, lively pubs, bank, post office, and restaurants which cater for almost every need and not to mention walking, fishing, shooting and other leisure activities for which this area is justly famous. Golf is available only 15 minutes from the property at the Oughterard golf course, set in natural parkland, and there are six other golf courses within an hour's drive. Oughterard has a diversity of spectacular scenery on the doorstep of Connemara with the tranquility and comfort of country living, yet less than 25 minutes’ drive to Galway City. The area abounds with wildlife, some of it rare, and is the home of one of Ireland’s most elusive mammals, the tree dwelling pine martin, as well as deer, otter, fox, hare, rabbit, badger, stoat and all manner of birds. A virtual nature lover’s delight.

The road upon which the property is situated is part of the Western Way, a 50km walking trail from Oughterard to Leenane and the road finishes some 4 miles past the house at the hill of Doon. There are also many walking trails through forests and moorland intersected with many small rivers and streams and with spectacular views over Lough Corrib.
