Property: Derryhiveny, Boula, Portumna, Galway
Known to many as Murray’s B&B, this modern five-bedroom dormer bungalow works perfectly as either a private family residence or as a busy and very well-reviewed bed and breakfast, like it did for many years with the Murray family.
The family are now retiring from this successful business to commence the next chapter in their lives. The property is located just a five-minute drive from Portumna town at the mouth of Lough Derg in the heart of the Midlands lake district.
With an overall floor area of approximately 2,765 square feet, this house is extremely deceptive from an initial glance. This is mainly due to the L-shape of the property, which is not evident from the front elevation, and the Velux roof windows which are to the rear of the home.
The house enjoys an east-west aspect, with the morning sun on the rear of the property illuminating the large kitchen and dining room area. The view from these windows sweeps across the surrounding green fields, with Derryhiney Castle in the backdrop. The castle is one the finest preserved ruins of Ireland’s 17th century castles and was the ancestral home of the O’Madden Clan.
With the evening sun on the front of the house, one can enjoy the illuminated water feature in the front garden, while the rear garden also has a selection of fruit trees including apple, plum, and cherry.
The property also boasts a large, bright sitting room the front of the house and all five bedrooms are en-suite. A spacious bathroom, utility off the kitchen and games room/office at first floor level make up the remainder of the accommodation.
The décor throughout could be described as generic, with light colours to give a bright airy feel through the house and will appeal to the majority of tastes.
To the outside of the property are a large detached domestic garage and two additional log cabin sheds, as well as a small greenhouse.
The property is approximately 262.2 sqm with a BER B3 energy rating.
