A detached two storey property providing approximately 1,500 sq. ft. of accommodation surrounded by its own gardens and situated on the main N59 Clifden to Letterfrack road. The property is currently vacant and is dry internally, offering potential purchasers a great opportunity to renovate and extend (subject to necessary planning constraints) to create a wonderfully situated family home.

The property is close to the shore of Ballinakill Harbour, one of the largest and most beautiful natural harbours in the West of Ireland, with a food store/post office and petrol station just down the road. The property is only 2 miles from Letterfrack with its lively social scene and shops.

The property is only six miles from Clifden, which is regarded as the Capital of Connemara, with banks and a large selection of shops, pubs, and other leisure facilities. Clifden is noted for its many fine seafood restaurants, the famous Connemara Pony Show which takes place there each August, and the Clifden Arts Festival in September, all of which attract many Irish and foreign visitors. The area is well provided for a wide range of sporting and leisure facilities, with fishing, boating and water sports most popular using the many beaches and bays which comprise this convoluted coastline.

The property is 56 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 21/2 hours from the property.

Golf is available at the Connemara Golf Club whilst there are six other courses within an hour's drive of the property.

The property is situated on the N59 in a north facing position on the outskirts of Moyard Village and close to Ballinakill Harbour. The house is well set on a plateau beside the road with grounds extending to approximately 1.63 acres of mature woodland. The two storey dwelling house was built in the 1920's and is in need of complete refurbishment. It appears to be dry with no evidence of the ingress of water, no evident sag or give on the floors dividing first and second floor or on the stairs. It comprises entrance hall, kitchen, bathroom with toilet wash hand basin and bath, large sitting room with dining room off, all on the ground floor. On the first floor the property has 4 bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room and separate shower room. Outside to the rear, there is a utility room and a range of outbuildings closer to the road.The dwelling house is constructed of stone rendered in concrete under a slate roof, which appears to be in fair condition.
