The property has the massive benefit of a private harbour, slipway, boathouse and direct access onto Lough Derg. The overall property has been very well maintained and the gardens, while beautiful, are low maintenance, taking full advantage of the setting and view. The harbour can accommodate different sizes of boats and is ideal to sail around Lough Derg to go for lunch at the nearby restaurants in Ballina/Killaloe, Garykennedy, Portroe, Dromineer or Terryglass, to name a few.
The gardens include a top manicured lawn with a large decking area which has been designed and built to fully appreciate the views of the Lough and surrounds. This overlooks a lower lawn that sweeps down to the Lough. To the side of the lower lawn there is a large boathouse and harbour and boat slipway. Lower part of land leased from ESB.
An orchard has been established on higher grounds at the side of the property so as not to block the views from the house. There is also a large greenhouse and a raised vegetable patch.
The owners have built a gardeners shower/toilet room at one end of the house which can also be used when entertaining outdoors. Also to the other side of the house there is a large veranda.
There is a double garage with a side annex for ride on lawn mower and two large sheds, one with electrics.
