"Vidomare", Farravaun, Glann Road, Oughterard, Co. Galway.
Ref: R0375


Secluded from the road, this 2 bedroom residence occupies a generous 1 acre site of rolling gardens overlooking Rinnerroon and Lough Corrib. The property has benefited some upgrades recently and now comes to the market reluctantly. The accommodation is light and spacious with excellent views from all principal rooms and comprises of entrance porch, kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms (1 en suite) and bathroom. Underneath there is a single garage with separate access. Outside the gardens are laid to lawn with mature trees surrounding the property, an attractive patio area and a large turning area or parking to the front.

The property is set in an elevated position overlooking some beautiful countryside with Lough Corrib nearby. This is one of the most sought after residential areas, within 5 miles of Oughterard Village and 6 miles from Oughterard Golf Club.

Oughterard is a charming village on the shores of Lough Corrib - the second largest freshwater lake in Ireland, and an internationally renowned wild brown trout fishery. Known as the Gateway to Connemara, Oughterard is well known for its fast increasing range of shops, pubs and hotels which cater for the large numbers of visitors who come to take advantage of the fishing, walking, boating and other leisure activities for which this village is justly famous. Furthermore, the village has, in recent years, become one of the most popular commuter villages to Galway city. Golf is available at the 18 hole Oughterard golf course, set in natural parkland and there are six other golf courses within an hour's drive.

The property is 18 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 and Knock airports are some 2 hours from the property. Galway Airport is just 40 minutes away with connections to Dublin, Waterford, Luton, Manchester, Edinburgh, and L'Orient.

The property is of concrete block construction with a rendered exterior under a tiled roof, which has been cleverly designed to incorporate a garage on a lower level. Internally the property is well presented throughout and provides light and neutrally decorated accommodation which consists of entrance porch, kitchen, lounge, two bedrooms, one being en suite and a separate bathroom, all heated with oil fired central heating. There are open fires in both bedrooms and stone fronted open fires in the lounge and kitchen. Outside the property there is an East facing patio area with access from the lounge and overlooking the front garden. There are gardens surrounding the property with a pedestrian access up onto the Glann road and gated driveway to the side. The driveway is chipped and culminates at the front door with a large turning area providing ample parking. The rest of the gardens are predominately laid to lawn, gently sloping and contain a range of mature trees around the property.
