Levally Cottage is a superbly renovated cottage in the most glorious setting you will find in Ireland, incorporating views of Levally Lake, with the backdrop of the majestic Nephin mountain. A charming house where one’s eye is constantly drawn to the fabulous view over the lake. Approached through electric gates onto a sweeping driveway, with mature hedging and views of the lake to the right, the residence is a bright and welcoming space, perfect for both relaxing and entertaining.
The kitchen, which is modern with Juncker flooring, encompasses an island unit with sink, hardwood worktop and ample storage areas, and is completed with an excellent dining area and a quiet space at the window for reflection. Here there is access through a sliding door to the south facing decking – perfect for barbequing. The lounge is a comfortable, light filled family area with feature open fireplace, Juncker flooring, recessed lighting and a vaulted ceiling giving superb height. This room also has access to the decking to the rear through two sliding doors. The main bedroom is just as vibrant with breath-taking views over the lake and access to the rear through another sliding door. The ensuite is fully tiled and has a double shower and Velux window. The hall, linking the living area to the bedrooms, continues the theme with a vaulted ceiling letting an abundance of light shine through the house. The large guest bedroom, with views of Nephin, also has an ensuite.
There are two further guest bedrooms, both with timber flooring and recessed lighting, a family bathroom and a utility room. The house links seamlessly with the gardens, the lake and surrounding landscape, epitomized not only by the abundance of windows offering a plenitude of sunlight, but also by the French doors which directly link the master bedroom, lounge and kitchen with the beautifully maintained terraced gardens and decking area to the rear. The mature gardens are extremely private and secure with electric gates, and link to the outer pasturage, where pleasure walks can be enjoyed.
The lands are well sheltered and include some 12.8 acres / 5.17 hectares of grazing pasture to the east and north east. There is an agricultural access point directly onto the property from the main road.
