Property Description:

Nestled comfortably in the wooded uplands of east Clare this property has instant appeal.

Two houses, the principal a four bedroom Farmhouse, as well as a separate two bedroom Cottage, sit amid an organically landscaped garden of approximately one and a half acres, with the remainder of the acreage in grass. Total area is circa five acres.

The property is surrounded by woodland and bordered on one side by a fluctuating stream which flows into Lough Derg a short distance away.

Located just off the R352 Whitegate to Portumna road the nearest village of Whitegate is 2kms with its post office, school, church, shops, bars, restaurant and vibrant sports and social clubs. This area is renowned for angling, walking and horse-riding. Both houses are in excellent condition and immediately habitable.
