Property Description

An enviable waterside property, enjoying stunning views across Lough Foyle

Superbly located with an elevated position on the banks of Lough Foyle, An Tearmann is an enviable waterfront property. An Tearmann is an Irish translation for ' 'sanctuary' ' a fitting description for this unique waterside home. The setting is simply spectacular, offering tranquillity.

The home has been thoughtfully renovated and extended to resonate with the local surrounds. The accommodation is well laid out utilising all of its space over one level and extends to about 1,192 square feet, presented in a modern neutral style, allowing the natural landscape to set the scene.

The entrance hallway opens into a bright and spacious kitchen/living/dining room which benefits from its south-easterly aspect with a magnificent view across the water. The open plan layout provides space for dining and sitting in this room, with access to the garden via the back porch.

The generous master bedroom, accessed off the inner hall, has an en suite shower room and also features a walk-in-wardrobe. The main bathroom is fully tiled in a contemporary style and includes a shower, wash hand basin and WC. A utility room and a second spacious double bedroom complete the accommodation, as shown on the accompanying floorplans.

Garden & Grounds
Situated to the side of the house, there is a lawned area and rockery, which is a particular feature. The garden aspect is south-west in an elevated position. It is an ideal space for outside dining and entertaining. The grounds are well sheltered and provide direct access to the water. In all, the grounds extend to about 0.22 hectare / 0.54 acre. An additional benefit is a useful storage/tool shed positioned to the rear of the house.

There is private parking to the front of the property.

County Donegal is located on the north-westerly tip of Ireland and is considered one of Ireland' s most beautiful and unspoilt counties which is renowned for its history, heritage and landscape. Donegal is typified by its dramatic towering sea cliffs, rolling lush hills and stunning beaches. The house is situated on the Inishowen peninsula, which is the beginning of the Wild Atlantic Way and is also Ireland' s largest peninsula. The peninsula is renowned for including Ireland' s most northerly point, Malin Head, and having numerous Blue-Flag beaches.

Greencastle is a lovely seaside town on the east coast of the Inishowen peninsula. Once a thriving commercial fishing port, Greencastle is today more known as a popular holiday village and fishing harbour with great restaurants and many attractions on its doorstep. The area was named after a local castle was built on a promontory rock overlooking Lough Foyle by the then Red Earl of Ulster, Richard de Burgh, in 1305. The castle was originally called North Burg Castle, later becoming New Castle and finally, Green Castle which is thought to reference the green-tinged stones with which it was built. There is allegedly a treasure of gold hidden here.

Local areas of interest include the Inishowen Maritime Museum & Planetarium (3 km), a popular tourist attraction in a former coastguard station with a craft shop and tearoom. Shrove Beach and Lighthouse (1.5 km) is located to the east of the town of Greencastle and comprises a Blue Flag beach and a famous lighthouse built in about 1837, which all provide a spectacular backdrop for early morning strolls. Kinnagoe Beach (9 km) is also a favoured beach in a secluded setting. It is famed for being the location of the wreck of the Armada ship La Trinidad Valencera on 16 September 1588.

An Tearmann is located along the shore, between Greencastle and Shroove, at a stretch of water known as Port Blaney. The port is named after St Blane, a bishop who died 590 AD, and founded a monastery which became the site of the Dunblane Cathedral in Scotland.

For golfing enthusiasts, Ballyliffin Golf Club (27 km) is regarded as one of Irelands' finest links complexes, boasting two championship courses, Glashedy Links which hosted the Irish Open in 2018, and the Old Links designed by Nick Faldo. Greencastle Golf Club, within (1 km) of An Tearmann, is an 18-hole links course which enjoys excellent views across Lough Foyle in the surrounds of the Inishowen Peninsula.

The Foyle Ferry runs from Greencastle (3 km) to Magilligan, offering access to the Causeway Coast and the famous Giant' s Causeway. The scenic and rugged landscape of Donegal inspires and captivates the senses and locations in the county have been used in the television series Game of Thrones and the movie series Star Wars.

An abundance of sporting and leisure activities are available on the Inishowen peninsula, with the coastline of Lough Swilly being ideal for all water and fishing activities. Moville' s Inish Adventures, an outdoor water activity centre offering kayaking and various sea activities is conveniently situated.

The Eircode for the property is F93 DR79.
