A second door leads from the reception hall into a playroom incorporating a red brick bar together with a reclaimed solid oak mirror panel and countertop complemented by a lead-lined glass overhang recused from a bank in Northern Ireland that dates back to the 1930's. Also situated off the entrance hall through French doors is a generously proportioned open-plan kitchen / dining room divided by a red brick arch.
The kitchen features solid ask units with polished black granite worktops and Italian porcelain tiled floor together with direct access to a hidden utility area and guest w.c. The coved dining area sits neatly into a bay window that provides direct access to a large patio/sun terrace bounded by natural stone walls leading into an expansive rear garden. Flanking the kitchen / dining room is a large living room featuring an oversized red brick fireplace with a built-in log burner. Completing the accommodation on the ground floor is a 35 sq.m (375 sq.ft) double integral garage that offers a multitude of possible alternative uses, most notably, as self-contained living accommodation that could be used by an elderly parent or an independent teenager.
The bedroom accommodation on the first floor includes a principal master bedroom with a sitting area, walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom. Situated off the landing are four further en-suite double bedrooms all finished to a high specification. The landing contains a staircase to a large open-span attic measuring circa 72.5 sq.m (780 sq.ft) in area, providing a blank canvas for at least another 3/4 additional bedrooms, if needed. Alternatively, this space could be easily utilised as a fantastic cinema room/hobby room or home office come studio.

Donegal Town is a busy shopping and tourist town in south Donegal where the River Eske flows into Donegal Bay. It was invaded by the Vikings in the 8th-century and they used it as a port. This invasion is where the town got its Gaelic name, Dun na nGall, which means 'Fort of the Foreigners'. The Vikings built a garrison in the town, thought to have been in the grounds where O'Donnells Castle/Donegal Castle now stands. In recent years human remains were found in the grounds of Castle these are thought to be Viking. Donegal Town continued as a port until the 1960s when the last commercial boat left the harbour, sailing to Scotland with its load of electricity poles.
The centre of the town is called 'The Diamond' and markets were held here until 1967. The markets were held on the second Friday of the month when the town would fill with farmers buying and selling cattle, together with various other traders selling their wares.
