Drimneen House is a fine country house style riverside residence fronting and overlooking the Drimneen River; a tributary of, and only a short boat ride to, Lough Corrib. Set on four acres of grounds, made up of developed gardens, lawns, shrub beds, and two paddocks, it is accessed off local road via a short fine gravel avenue.
Aughanure Castle is close by and also fronts onto the Drimneen River and has access to some of Lough Corrib’s best fishing around Oughterard Bay, Greenfields, and Birchall. Oughterard Golf Club is approximately 700 metres from the house.
The residence was built by its current owner in 2003 and offers a high standard of fitout and accommodation. It is evident on entering this home the amount of thought, care, and attention to detail that went into the design and fit out.
Extending to approximately 387sq m (4,166sq ft ), its rooms are large, bright, well-proportioned, and all take full advantage of its countryside setting overlooking the gardens and the river. From the feature stairwell in the entrance hall to the specially treated solid oak timber floors (suitable for underfloor heating ) to the Rayburn stove in the kitchen, and many dual aspect rooms, you can appreciate the care this home has received.
Asking price is €495,000. The house is large, well planned, and it offers potential purchasers the opportunity for a large family home or a potential opportunity for guest accommodation. The BER is C3 on BER cert no 106287352, and the energy performance indicator is 200.04 kWh/sq m/yr.
Approximately 75 metres of frontage onto the Drimneen River gives a very pleasant aspect as well as the opportunity to fish and gain access via boat to Lough Corrib.
