Property description
Right on the shores of Lough Derg, and with its own private waterfront access, Derg Lodge is a small piece of paradise. This five bedroomed house was built in the early 1990s and has been well cared for ever since. Mature trees shelter the grounds, offering peace and privacy, at the same time as the house has been sited to take advantage of one of the most sought-after views in Ireland.

Paddocks and gardens lead down to a private harbour, while the house itself has a patio and terracing so you can soak up all the advantages of this ideal south facing setting.

Reached via a long avenue, the house is flanked by a separate private yard with its own stable block/garage and sand arena. There are six loose boxes, a tack room and storage area here, which, together with approximately.5.16ha (12.76acres) also makes Derg Lodge the ideal spot for the equestrian enthusiast.

Lough Derg itself is famous as a sailing, cruising, angling and water sports spot. The direct lake access and charming sheltered mooring is one of the most magical features of this wonderful property. Inside, the five bedrooms plus generous top floor space give you plenty of options for accommodation, while the reception rooms have been laid out to drink in the views.

Derg Lodge
A long avenue, flanked with stud rail fencing, opens up to the cobble-lock forecourt, and welcoming entrance hall of Derg Lodge. A small porch opens to the very generous reception space, which has a welcoming solid fuel stove, and feature staircase. To the left is a large family kitchen / breakfast room, with rich russet floor tiles, and an Aga. This room has a large bay window looking out to the lake and mountains beyond. It, in turn, leads to a dining room that has French windows to the patio. Beyond this, the drawing room has another feature bay window overlooking the lake, and open fire with marble surround. A study/sitting room is located to the front of the house, giving a nice calm work area. There is also a large utility room off the kitchen and entrance hallway.

The five bedrooms, all en-suite are reached via an inner hallway that leads to the bedroom wing and main bathroom. The master suite has another wonderful bay window, while the other four bedrooms face to the front of the house. These look out over two of the paddocks, with tranquil view. Two of these bedrooms are dual aspect, and all are doubles. Upstairs the very generous top floor space is divided into three large room, one of which has an en-suite. There is also a family bathroom at this level.

Outbuildings
The driveway of Derg Lodge divides, just before the house to lead to the stable yard/garage, in which the stable block itself is a very generous space with large sliding timber doors. Inside six loose boxes flank a central walkway. There is also a useful utility space and tack room area. A flood lit sand arena is adjacent.

Outside
While the most obvious feature of Derg Lodge is the lake view, the grounds themselves are a principal part of the charm of this property. Offering peace and seclusion, the mature planting shelters the site. A wooded area closest to the lake makes the harbour itself a magical spot, while also protecting craft moored here.
The site softly slopes to fully reveal the views, while the gradient of the paddocks is gentle, and so they are ideal for grazing, and exercising horses. The addition of the floodlit sand arena makes for an all-weather bonus. The house itself is surrounded by lawns and patios, which are tranquil and deliberately low maintenance.
Boating from the harbour can bring you to the pretty villages of Ballina/Killaloe, Garykennedy, Portroe, Dromineer or Terryglass – ideal for sailing or lunch outings.
