A DECEPTIVELY SPACIOUS SOUTH FACING SINGLE STOREY BUNGALOW, SET ON AN ELEVETATED SITE OF 1.85 ACRES WITH ADDITIONAL SITE POTENTIAL AND WITH BEAUTIFUL VIEWS IN EVERY DIRECTION.
DIRECTIONS: From the centre of Oughterard, proceed out the Glann Road by the lakeshore for 3.2 Miles (from the centre of the village), passing the junction with the high road. Take the next turning left just past the thatched cottage on the left hand side. This baureen is marked by our directional board. Proceed up the Baurnagortheeny road for approx. 300 meters and 'Robins Nest' will be found on the right hand side marked by our 'For Sale' board. Proceed up the private avenue and the house will be in front of you.
THE HOUSE: Constructed approximately 30 years ago, this detached single-storey property now comes to the market and offers light and bright accommodation overlooking lovely gardens. The accommodation which is spacious and bright comprises of inner hallway, large triple aspect living room, kitchen/dining room, 4 bedrooms (master ensuite), separate bathroom and utility room. The property is of block construction with a rendered exterior and under a concrete tile roof. Next to the utility room there is a further storage room and also a boiler house which houses a Firebird oil fired boiler (accessed from outside).
Outside there are lawned gardens on three sides with a range of mature trees and shrubs interspersed. There is a separate garden shed, boathouse and greenhouse. The auctioneers believe that the lower gardens adjacent to the baureen road have site potential adjacent to the existing boat house.
SITUATIONS & AMENITIES: Oughterard 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 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, 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.

To the side of this there is a covered lean-to for additional storage.
There is a greenhouse to the east of the property and a further garden shed to the rear. The rear gardens are split level and there is an attractive patio area to the rear which benefits from total privacy.
