THE HOUSE: The property was constructed circa 1960 of block construction under a concrete tile roof with a rendered exterior with Upvc double glazed windows and doors throughout the whole property. The property was extended and upgraded around 2002 to provide a lovely bright south facing family room with access to outside though double doors. The property is deceptively spacious with a lovely flow and feel of the house with a big feature of the living and dining area being a double sided solid fuel stove which provides heat all round.
The kitchen is well proportioned, and has easy access to the other reception rooms. The property has lovely views over the gardens outside which are a true delight. To the side there is an integral garage which could provide the additional space subject to planning and regulations.
SITUATION: Oughterard is a charming village on the shores of Lough Corrib - the internationally renowned wild brown trout fishery. Known as the gateway to Connemara, Oughterard is well known for its 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. 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. There are primary, secondary schools and a crèche within 10 minutes drive of the property.
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, red squirrel and all manner of birds. A virtual nature lover's delight. Being set in such a rural location, the property benefits from un polluted night skies.
The road upon which the property is situated is part of the Western Way, a 50km walking trail from Oughterard to Leenane. The Western Way is a walking trail through forests and moorland intersected with many small rivers and streams and with spectacular views over Lough Corrib along the length of the walk.
The property is 27 kilometres from the regional capital of the West, Galway City, with its mainline road and rail connections and extensive and substantial cultural, commercial and retail facilities. Shannon Airport is some 2 hours from the property. Dublin airport is approximately 2.5 hours.
