Property Description:


4 Bed Farmhouse with separate Cottage on C5 Acres.
If you are looking for a peaceful rural lifestyle this could be the property for you. Located in the foothills of the Sliagh Aughty Mountains in East Clare, surrounded by woodland and close to beautiful Lough Derg, this property consists of a traditional Irish farmhouse originally built in the 1940's but extensively renovated in 2011 to maintain its original rustic style and features while at the same time allowing the comforts of modern living, together with a separate stone built reconstructed cottage, all standing on C5 acres of land.
The entire property is in excellent condition throughout.


Situated close to the Raheen Woods Steiner School, Whitegate and Mountshannon Primary Schools and near the bus route to the secondary schools of both Woodford and Scariff, the property is also on the East Clare Way and a local horse trekking route.

The farmhouse is on two levels and the ground floor comprises a kitchen, living room, sitting room, snug, study, utility room and wet room and has plenty of storage space, while the first floor accommodates the four bedrooms, bathroom, w.c. and a bright open landing area. All the bedrooms have built in wardrobes and space is very well used. There are velux windows throughout upstairs.
The property is south facing and benefits from a wonderful natural light. In keeping with the rustic style of the house the ground floor walls are rendered internally with a hemp plaster whish maintains the character of the property as well as adding an insulating quality.
There are also some traditional internal design features unique to the area. Water is provided from a deep bored well on the property and a certified bio-cycle septic system is installed. There are two solar tube panels for heating water and all windows are wooden double glazed. Central heating comes from a solid fuel Rayburn range in the kitchen which can also be used for cooking. The roof is of natural slate.

The cottage is to the rear of the main house and is ideal for renting out to walkers, cyclists or holidaymakers in general. It consists of a large living room, kitchen/dining area, two bedrooms and bathroom. At one end of the cottage are two traditional studios which could be used for any number of purposes or just as additional bedrooms to the cottage. The cottage is block built and faced with stone.

The garden is large and would be suitable for ponies or sheep and there is a polytunnel and some raised beds close to the house. There is a large storage shed and a bike shed, both of which have water and electricity. There are several specimen trees on the property and while it is quite remote and peaceful there are neighbours nearby. There is an abundance of wildlife and the area is a haven for nature lovers.

The village of Whitegate is three miles away and Shannon International Airport as well as the large towns of Limerick, Ennis and Galway are all within an hours drive.
So, if a self sustaining lifestyle is what you want, this property offers the space and facilities to grow your own together with the opportunity to generate a rental income.
