Property Description:

We are delighted to join Savills in presenting arguably one of the finest waterfront houses in Kerry to the market. Lakefield House is the perfect private full time residence or indeed a second home with plenty of room for friends & family and the benefit of generating rental income if one so wishes.

Lakefield House will surprise you at every turn as you wander through the grounds, with secret gardens, picturesque dry stone walls, huge mature trees, a wide variety of tender flowering shrubs, bushes and expanses of lawn.

This superb property, set on an elevated site is made to admire the lake and surrounding landscape.
Thoughtfully designed by the current owner, the house was built to take advantage of the amazing setting in the heart of Kerry.

Great care and attention went into the build in 1978 and resulted in generous living accommodation with solid concrete floors, double glazed windows and doors and substantial stone paved terraces.

The panoramic views are available from all main rooms which are well proportioned and have access to the terrace. Upstairs two of the bedrooms have their own penthouse style balcony where one can bask in the sun in total privacy while appreciating the best views from the house including unrivalled sunsets.

Guest accommodation is provided in 3 units; a quaint traditional Irish cottage with feature double height ceiling & central double sided fireplace and a more contemporary lodge with 2 apartments, easily converted to a single private dwelling. Alternatively these units these units are ideal to provide income as holiday lets if considering commercial use, all very much in keeping with the magical feel of this wonderful property.
