A CHARMING ONE BEDROOM COTTAGE WITH FULL PLANNING PERMISSION FOR EXTENSION OF 775 SQ. FEET TO CREATE A LUXURY 3 BEDROOM RETREAT SITUATED WITHIN A STONES THROW OF LOUGH CORRIB ON THE BEAUTIFUL ISLAND OF INISHMICATREER
Inishmicatreer or Inis -Mic-a-Trir is the site of an early monastery; the ruins of the old church known as the abbey still exist but are very hard to date as very little remains. The island itself is located in County Galway and is accessible via a causeway from County Mayo. The area is renowned for its fishing throughout the season and a haven for wildlife on the water around the island. The property is just 9 miles from Headford, which derives its name from Áth Cinn, “the head of the ford”, and is a fast developing and improving town with a good selection of churches, shops, supermarkets, pubs, and other facilities. The property is approximately 10 minutes from the main Galway to Ballinrobe road (R334) giving easy access to the regional capital of the West, Galway City, with its mainline road, rail and extensive and substantial cultural, commercial and retail facilities. Shannon and Knock Airports are under 2 hours from the property.
The house was constructed around the turn of the century of stone construction with a rendered exterior under a fibre slate roof and situated on a site of 0.25 acres. The present owners have obtained full planning permission for extension and renovation and have consequently cleared the site thus enabling an easy construction. The property faces south with an eastern gable being directly onto the Corrib shore. The property has mains electricity, water which is pumped from Lough Corrib and filtered and septic tank drainage.
