Wild Winds in Furrymelia West in Barna is tucked away in a haven of peace and tranquillity where you can gaze over the wild Atlantic Ocean and enjoy the ever changing colours of Black Head in Co Clare. Not quite ‘wild’ in every sense of the word, this outstanding property is surrounded by tall trees which are a great source of shelter and add to its feeling of seclusion.
Extending to more than 4,250sq ft and standing on 0.6 acres of landscaped gardens that include a large pond, this striking property is ideal for family living and entertaining due to its selection of well proportioned bedrooms and ample interconnecting living spaces. The grand hallway exceeds all expectations and gives way to a large open reception area and a winding staircase that is cleverly positioned to leave the maximum space in the areas below. From the first floor Wild Winds boasts breath-taking views over the rolling countryside, Galway Bay and the Clare hills, and it is on this floor that the main living room and lounge are located. This stunning home has been meticulously thought out with flair and taste in both architectural layout and interior design with somewhat of a Spanish and rustic touch. A warm and welcoming atmosphere is palpable the moment you enter the reception areas.
Wild Winds is the answer for people who long for a rural type lifestyle while being within easy reach of all amenities that are on offer in the village of Barna. The famous 12 Hotel, the beach, the many notable restaurants, and of course the local primary school are all but a leisurely stroll from the house itself.
