Dun Aine is within a short drive from the heritage villages of Ballina and Killaloe, which are connected by a bridge over the River Shannon. The villages are situated at the southern end of Lough Derg and are renowned for all water sports including sailing, water skiing, pleasure boating and fishing.
The surrounding area is renowned for its magnificent scenery and combined with the varied terrain, offers many attractive walks routes for cyclists. The Lough Derg Way passes through Killaloe/Ballina and continues along the Tipperary side of the lake.
There is an abundance of good restaurants, hotels, coffee shops and pubs in Killaloe and Ballina, including Flanagans on the Lake, Goosers, Ponte Vecchio, Tuscany and the Wooden Spoon.
Ballina/Killaloe caters for everyday requirements and both Limerick City (32 km) and Nenagh (19 km) are easily accessible via the M7. Both offer supermarkets and high street stores, together with good boutique shopping.
The M7 motorway (Junction 27) is located 11km to the south) connecting Dublin to Limerick provides easy access to Dublin, Shannon Airport and the University of Limerick.
There are a number of schools in Ballina, Killaloe and the surrounding areas for children of all ages and levels. Private secondary schools are available at Glenstal Abbey (a day and boarding school for boys) and a further selection in Limerick City.
Dun Aine occupies an elevated site, strategically positioned to take full advantage of the 180-degree, stunning lakeside views.
The house was built in 1980 and offers spacious and comfortable accommodation suitable for most buyers needs. The property has the added benefit of being over one floor, perfect for buyers who are downsizing.
The property is accessed via a country road, directly off the R494, with a private laneway leading to a parking area to the side of the house.
The living accommodation is both generous and cleverly designed for modern day living. The principal reception rooms are well-positioned to take advantage of the lake views and the master bedroom, which was added on by the current owners, has garden and water views. The large lounge is the focal point of the house, a relaxing space to sit and enjoy the tranquil surroundings in front of the open fire.
The accommodation extends to about 220 sq m / 2,373 sq ft and a full layout of the accommodation is shown on the adjoining floorplans.
Note � the property previously benefitted from a planning permission to convert the attic into three bedrooms and a bathroom, but this has now lapsed.
The self-contained one-bedroom cottage has a lovely atmosphere, is in excellent order and built in a traditional style. There is an open plan kitchen/living room, bedroom and a shower room and is suitable as ancillary accommodation or for generating additional rental income. It is approached by a stone path from the main house.
The accommodation extends to about 43 sq m / 472 sq ft and is shown on the accompanying floorplans.
Gardens & Grounds
The gardens are very well kept, low maintenance and home to many perennial shrubs and flower bedding. The lawn area to the front of the house is neat and has been used as a seating area to enjoy the views while dining. The mature trees to the rear of the house provide a shelter and privacy to the house.
The double garage currently provides plenty of storage or if needed, could be converted into a wonderful home office subject to the relevant planning permission.
In all, the grounds extend to about 0.82 hectare / 2 acres.
