Joint agents Murphy Gubbins Auctioneers & BOC Properties are delighted to bring this lakeside gem, Bunglasha Lodge, to the market for sale by private treaty.
This outstanding waterside home sits prominently on 3 acres with the option to purchase 3 adjoining former fishermans stone cottages on a further 6 acres. The property is currently being let on a short term holiday letting basis and while it generates a significant yearly income it will also obviously appeal to an owner occupier who want to live in their own 'little piece of Heaven' by the lake.
With stunning gardens, mature trees, woodlands, a paddock, manicured lawns with uninterrupted views of Lough Derg and the surrounding countryside, this home has the rare privilege of being sold with its own private jetty and some 200m of private lake shoreline.
Located 11km from Killaloe/Ballina, 32km from Limerick City and 48km from Shannon Airport, Bunglasha Lodge provides a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a tranquil haven of peaceful, private lakeside living, with all of the cities amenities close to hand.
An opportunity to purchase a ready to move into waterside haven such as this does not present itself often and the joint agents highly recommend viewing.
The three charming fisherman cottages are located beside the main residence on the waterfront. Dating back the 19th century, these cut stone cottages have planning permission to be extended and transformed into holiday homes. They also provide an opportunity to be transformed into stables (spp), which would be a welcome accompaniment to the already existing paddock or perhaps a home office/studio space (spp) - perfect for modern hybrid working.

The house itself is approximately 471m2 with excellently apportioned accommodation comprising an entrance hall, family room, formal dining room, living room, kitchen/breakfast room, Utility Room with WC, Master Bedroom with dressing room & ensuite, 2 bedrooms, WC and bathroom at ground floor level.
