This spacious home comes with amazing country surroundings, and large amounts of your own green space in the garden, but is still within minutes of the city and Moycullen, making it perfect for a family that wants more space than the city has to offer, without sacrificing the convenience of proximity.

The house itself offers a large amount of living space which has been finished to an extremely high standard throughout, with an emphasis on light and warmth.

Wood flooring in a variety of different woods is prevalent throughout the building, with a mixture of oak, teak, pine, and red deal creating a warm and elegant atmosphere that still has variety.

Along with tiled floors in all of the bathrooms, kitchen, conservatory, and utility rooms, this creates an easy to clean home décor.

The ground floor consists of the main living area of the house, with a spacious lounge, living room, and conservatory for relaxation and dining, along with a modern kitchen and utility room.

Just inside the front door, the atmosphere is set by the entrance hall which manages to be both modern, and possess old fashioned charm, where the oak floors and teak wooden staircase match perfectly with the warm tones chosen for the walls.

Both the Living Room and Lounge are centred around feature fireplaces, with ample room for a family to relax or entertain guests. The design creates a wonderful balance of elegance and cosiness, sacrificing nothing to achieve both.

Outside the property is extremely attractive, sitting on a 0.26ha green site that offers incredible views over Lough Corrib nearby.

The large front lawn features mature, well kept greenery and flower beds, while the rear garden is even more stylish in its presentation. The multi-level garden is presented in a tiers demarcated by traditional stone walls.
