Property Description

The Leinster Property Auction in partnership with Sherry FitzGerald Davitt & Davitt

Offered at bids over 345,000

Finea Lodge, built circa 2008/09, is set on approximately 24 acres with lake frontage onto Lough Kinale, only 0.75 miles/1km from the village of Finea, on the Cavan / Westmeath border and only 1.5 hours from Dublin, making it a great place for a weekend retreat as well as a family home.

Included in this sale is a further c. 6 acres of Bog Land, these lands are not adjoining the main house and lands (see folio maps)

Built circa 2008/09 the interior of the house is completed to a builders finish, with the scope to create a spacious home very evident. The ground fioor comprises of 2 reception rooms (1 of which is suitable for open fires), a large kitchen with a sun room and dining area, a wide entrance hall, a study, utility area, wc and a double garage. On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms, (1 ensuite bathroom) and a main bathroom. There is also a very large attic space that can potentially be made into 2 further bedrooms, subject to any necessary permissions.

Being at the builders finish stage allows huge scope for a successful! buyer to make the house very much their own, and would be ideal for a family who enjoy fishing, shooting, horse keeping, with wonderful privacy to boot and an extended shoreline which includes a natural boat jetty.

Lough Kinale is on the Cavan, Westmeath and Longford borders, close to the village of Finea. It has been designated a special area of conservation. The whole of Lough Kinale is very important for waterfowl and coarse fishing and is connected to Lough Sheelin (which is noted for its Brown Trout), through the River Inny.

Lough Kinale sustains important populations of Mute Swan, Pochard, Tufted Duck, Wigeon, Coot, as well as many other species. The adjoining wetland areas provide ideal shelter and feeding for Golden Plover, Lapwing and Curlew species. Large numbers of Starlings land in the reed beds in the evenings, creating amazing formation scenes or murmarations. The lake also is a highly desirable area for fishing and produces good stocks of Roach, Bream, Eel, and Pike.

The Bridge of Finea is a historically important and strategic crossing point between Leinster and Ulster on a short stretch of the Inny between Lough Sheelin and Lough Kinale. It is still the only direct road connection between Westmeath and Cavan. A number of battles have taken place around the bridge due to its great strategic importance. The most important of these confrontations are two battles between Cromwellian and Confederate forces in 1644 and again in 1651. Notably the battle between Myles "The Slasher" O'Reilly and Cromwellian troops.

Finea itself is a pretty village with a tree-lined main street leading to the stone bridge over the river Inny. Situated midway between Lough Sheelin and Lough Kinale, the village is popular with fishermen, particularly in the mayfly season. There is a general store (which is also a newsagents and petrol station), two public houses, a church, a school, as well as a food factory. The nearest towns forming an inner ring are Granard, Oldcastle, Ballyjamesduff, Castlepollard, and Edgeworthstown (direct and regular train connections). With the larger towns of Mullingar, Longford and Cavan forming an outer ring, approx. 30 minutes away.

For those interested in buying into a lifestyle rather than just buying a house, Finea Lodge should be of considerable appeal.
