A hidden paradise sums up this very well maintained coastal residence on c. 11.5 acres of land situated on the coastline on one of South Connemara's Islands.
The house is a traditional lofted cottage that was extended and fully renovated to a very high standard in recent years to include a new heating system. The cottage dating back to the early 1900's retains many of its original features with the obvious ones being the thick stone built walls and the large open fireplace in the living room.
Its setting along this rugged coastline positions the property ideally for exploring the many islands and beaches in the region by land or by sea. There is a public quay beside the property and others scattered through out the island where boats can be moored.
This charming property is conveniently located just within walking distance to 'An Tra Bhain', one of the West of Ireland's beautiful sandy beaches and Trabane fishing harbour, while also being a mere 5 minute drive to Lettermore village are all local amenities including shops, Post Office, National School, & Church.
Luibin Garumna coastal trail runs along the end of this property, a walk which follows coastal paths and small quiet winding country roads on Gorumna Island with stunning views of the Maamturk and 12 Bens mountains, award winnings views of the Aran Islands, varying seascapes and the unique surrounding countryside, such as coral beaches and rocky fields.
This property would make the perfect getaway property along the Connemara coastline or is ideally suited as an investment property in a location which would have excellent demand for short term lettings throughout the year.
