Ballyconneely has long been considered one of the most stunning locations in Connemara and, indeed, the west of Ireland. Its beautiful white sandy beaches, its unspoilt rugged countryside, and the mountainous scenery that seems to go on forever, are just a few of the reasons that holiday makers, from home and abroad, have been flocking here for many decades.
It is no surprise then that the residential sales team at DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard are hugely excited about their latest offering to the market, Foxglove House in Derrigimla, Ballyconneely. In an area where there are many desirable homes, with the most amazing aspects, this detached home stands on the shoulders of all, with spectacular vistas overlooking Lough Emlaghnabehy and the surrounding coastline.
Built in the mid 1970s, this impressive cut-stone residence comes to the market with c1,800sq ft of living space to include an open-plan living dining area, a kitchen, a separate sun lounge/breakfast room, three ground floor bedrooms, and a bathroom at ground floor level. The upstairs has a master bedroom with en suite, and a gallery room suitable for a number of uses which leads out to the mezzaine landing which overlooks the large living area with its stone feature open fireplace. Foxglove House has been modernised over the years and is in pristine condition, with the current owners tastefully furnishing and decorating the house to give a warmth and charm which fits right in with its beautiful surrounds.
According to the selling agent James Heaslip there is nothing on the market in the Ballyconneeely area that can compare to this property, “Foxglove House is simply out there on its own," he said. "There is nothing in the Ballyconneely area that can compare to the stunning surrounds of Derrigimla and the beautiful beaches nearby. This impressive cut-stone house is on an elevated site with manicured gardens and the views are truly breathtaking. It is presently owner-occupied but it will surely appeal to those who want a spacious getaway in one of the country's most desirable holiday destinations.”
Situated about 12 kilometres from Clifden town centre, the property is just a short spin to Ballyconneely village and only 15 minutes to Connemara Golf Club, one of the most spectacular links courses in all of Ireland. James Heaslip added: “The house is bright, spacious, and wonderfully presented. No hassles with renovating or extending, or having to deal with builders or tradesmen, there is nothing to do – it is literally ready to walk into. As expected, we have already had a great reaction with a number of overseas buyers making inquiries, having viewed our interactive virtual tour technology. That said, with the current restrictions imposed on foreign travel, I’m betting that it will be a home based buyer who makes the smart move on this truly spectacular property.”
