Derrymount
This charming Thatched cottage has commanding views across the unspoilt Irish countryside, and the magnificent Lough Derg. With beautifully proportioned accommodation, this thatched home is one that immediately captivates.

The bright and generous entrance hall is flanked by the Richard Burke design kitchen to the left, enjoying the daylight until sunset. Fitted out to an excellent standard, the kitchen boats a "La Cornue"TM French stove and a dual surface island unit. A utility room accompanies the kitchen to the side. Through the double doors in kitchen will lead you to a luxurious sitting room which takes centre stage in the home. The dining room connects to the sitting room through another set of fine double doors.

Just off the dining room and down the hall will take you to a superb dual aspect downstairs bedroom, boasting some awe-inspiring panoramic lake views with direct access to the gardens via patio doors. Downstairs is complete with a WC, an additional bedroom, and an office.

Upstairs the three bedrooms are all generous doubles, enjoying spectacular lake and garden views. A large WC accompanies the bedrooms on the upper floor. The is a very spacious master enjoying stunning dual aspect views, complimented by a well-structured dressing room which uniquely doubles as a panic room on demand.

Situated on a rise in the land, the most immediate feature of the property is the incredible view, both from inside, and out. Derrymount gifts a deep sense of timeless peace and tranquillity, yet it is in easy reach of the world.

Boathouse & Harbour
A private, and newly built boat house and harbour is located on the shoreline of Lough Derg. Boasting top specification security installations, natural stone facing walls and exclusive access to Lough Derg, this boathouse and accompanying harbour is a gem among stones on the shores of the Shannon. This boathouse has a state of the art fit out with top quality marine decking internally, 10ft internal water depth for mooring and boat access via the electrohydraulic powered door.

Please note the Boathouse and Harbour are available by further negotiation.

Thatching in the 21st Century
Thatched Houses today are considered an object of universal admiration. Derrymount is no exception to this. This charming, thatched residence has been lovingly cared for by the current owners ensuring this unique character feature enjoys longevity but bestows safety, by means of layered fireguards under the roofing and fire extinguishers on site. The property was rethatched c. 5 years ago which indicates c. 25 - 30 years remain of the lifespan for the thatch in situ according to current literature on thatched roofing lifespans.

Gardens and Grounds
Sitting on an elevated but sheltered site, Derrymount is a completely private enclave extending to approx. 11.68 ha (4.15 acres), that opens up to one of Ireland's most spectacular views over Lough Derg.

The house itself is reached via a driveway secured by electrified gates and an anti-ram bollard, leading to a gravel forecourt providing ample hard parking. The gravelled parking area to the front leads you to your front porch and a patio area which reaches around to the rear of the house, where one can enjoy the sunlight hours with far-reaching lake views. Further lawns and mature planting surround the house, where the landscaping also includes a feature wood carving from a storm felled 140 year old Ash tree, depicting a Tree Spirit.

Thatched Storage
Adjacent to the main house, you will find a large workshop, gym and storage area self-contained in a premium quality, thatched Log cabin. This two-level thatched garage on the grounds is currently in use as storage however, subject to the relevant planning permissions, this log cabin provides extraordinary scope and flexibility for a potential guest suite, staff quarters, or location for a home business.
