About this listing
Terryglass is an award winning village located on Lough Derg & the river Shannon.
This house is completely modernised and recently refurbished detached property conveniently situated in the heart of Terryglass Village & 300 meters from the marina on Shannon lane, the road leading to the marina.
There is a historic well said to cure headaches in the woodland to the rear of the property which is accessible from a gateway beside the house.
There is also woodland in the same area to the rear but has been left untouched to allow local wildlife to flourish, so you can wake up to the sound of birdsong.
Terryglass is very central with the entire midland lake system at your doorstep.
The house comprises of a living room, dining room annex leading to a kitchen with a very large gas/electric cooker perfect for large family meals.
There are three bedrooms with a king size bed in the rear bedroom, a double bed in the front room and a triple bunk bedroom beside the double.
The bathroom is a underfloor heated wetroom.
There is a single futon bed which can be used for a eight guest as required in either the bunk bedroom(tight fit), the back bedroom or the living room.
Outside is a patio area with Outback Hunter 3 gas BBQ. There is a table and chairs & parasol for this area (or in the rear shed if the weather is poor - combination is the same as the front keysafe)
There is a 32" LCD TV in the family room which gets all Irish Saorview channels as well as the UK channels via sateillite. There is also a DVD player(so you can play DVDs for kids).
Heating and hot water is controlled by a Nest thermostat.
Given the proximity to the marina, this is a perfect location to split with a cruiser rental from one of the many hire businesses in the locale, here's the answer to a very large group.
Main house, parking and gardens.
There is an adjoining front garage which will remain locked along with a small storage room inside the house used to store linen and cleaning items.
