Waterside wonders: views of Lough Derg for €375,000

Six-bed house on one acre in Co Tipperary

Set on an elevated site of one acre overlooking Lough Derg, Bellevue is a lake boat enthusiast’s dream as there are three marinas within three kilometres of the property.

The 260sq m (2,799sq ft) house is home to Annette Foley and her family who have placed their home on the market through estate agent Olivers with an asking price of €375,000.

The house is beautifully decorated by Foley, an interior designer and all but two of the smaller bedrooms have solid oak flooring throughout.

Downstairs, the kitchen, living and dining areas are all open plan and flow nicely into one another. The focal point of the livingroom is a large open fire with brass surround and a mantle made from a huge chunk of pine, which is flanked on either side by French doors leading to the front lawn.

The country-style kitchen handcrafted by Hausmann Kitchens features Iroko worktops and a double Belfast sink with a breakfast bar acting as a partition to the dining area.

There are two bedrooms on the ground floor and four further bedrooms upstairs, two of which are en suite.

New owners could easily turn one of the downstairs bedrooms into a further reception room if needed.

Foley and her family have moved to Dublin as new employment dictates their location. “We used the boat every single weekend,” says Foley, “it is really an ideal spot for boating and there is a Coillte forest to the rear of the house for walks.”

The property would make a great family home or holiday hideaway with its proximity to the water and serviced marinas.
