Situated on the shore of Lough Corrib, the property is situated at the end of a quiet baureen road and then behind a gated entrance. This location offers the purchaser the best of both worlds being so close to a wide range of amenities only 4.8 miles from Moycullen and 13 miles from Galway in a lovely lakeside setting away from the noise and crowds of the city and on a no through road. The nearest National School is located less than 3 miles away at Tullokyne, with four other primary schools within easy reach. The local shop and pub is located at Tullokyne, with a wide and growing range of amenities available in Moycullen village. This has become a very popular location in recent years due to its convenient commuting distance to Galway City and excellent access to the lake.

The property is 13 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 Airport is some 1.5 hours from the property with connections to Dublin, Cork, Belfast, Luton, Manchester, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Leeds Bradford, Bristol, Southampton, Newcastle and L’Orient.

THE HOUSE: The chalet is approached by a gated entranceway with a registered and recognised right of way over the field. The current owners use a small 4 wheel drive vehicle to access the house and this adds to the charm of the property. The property was built approximately 30 years ago of cedar with a slightly pitched mineralized felt roof. There is double glazing throughout and a solid fueled stove situated in the living room. This heats radiators in all principal rooms and provides hot water. There is substantial lake frontage with a private mooring and separate slipway into the lake. Beside the property there is a newly constructed timber shed. The house is virtually surrounded by trees providing shelter with a substantial lawned area to the front of the property. This totally private gem offers lakeshore living with total privacy from any other neighbours.

PLANNING PERMISSION:
The property was constructed in the early 1980’s and retention was sought in 1997 for the existing chalet and septic tank under application 97/67. This was granted. The present owners and auctioneer believe that this chalet could be replaced by a modern single storey dwelling but no guarantees can be given and it is up to the purchasers to make their own enquiries with Galway County Council.
