The agent dates this place to 1963, with a ‘beautiful location’ on the shores of Lough Derg. Not only that, this place has half an acre of land and private lake access.

The architecture and that location are massive selling points. But it doesn’t really carry through into the interior.

Unfortunately we don’t get too many wide angle views of the interior, but the agent describes the inside as ‘somewhat tired’ and ‘in need of extensive renovation’. That’s probably the case.

But what an opportunity for someone. Just look at the house, think about the location and consider the amount of space here. Of course, you also get those walls of glazing and the angled roof too, features rarely found in property at this price point. In fact, features rarely found in properties for sale in either the UK or Ireland.
