There is something magical about Caragh Lake and it is only once in a blue moon that an opportunity to purchase a home right beside the lake arises. Teach an Cullin is not only set on a mature lakeside site of c.1 acre, but also a beautifully appointed detached family home ready to move in to. This property is special and is the perfect bolthole if you want to get away from it all. The area is tranquil, untouched by the modern world, where birdsong and the lapping of the lake are the most prevalent sounds to be heard. Whether you are looking for a full-time or holiday home, you probably won't look much further when you have seen this one.
This house was built by a German engineer in the 1980's. It is of extremely high-quality build with concrete upper floor. It has recently been partially upgraded to include full insulation by the current owners. The rooms are spacious and bright, the windows are huge to ensure full appreciation of the wonderful views afforded from the rear of the property. Arriving at Teach an Cullin through the gated entrance you get your first glimpse the lake across the rear lawn and through the tall trees with the sun shining through. The front of the house is L-shaped giving a courtyard feel to the parking area. The impressive panelled teak entrance door leads to a wide tiled hallway, still not affording you the full wonder of the lake view. On entering the sitting room or dining room, this is where you will stop and appreciate the stunning view. To the front of the property there is a modern kitchen which leads to a very large utility room, drying room/workshop and storage / games room. Just outside the back door, there is a full sized fully operational sauna, used regularly by the current owners. At the opposite end of the hall you will find a study/bedroom, large ensuite bedroom and a bathroom.
Upstairs leads to a long landing where you enter the Master bedroom with walk in wardrobe and ensuite and two large picture windows overlooking the lake. From this room you will find access to a huge attic storage space with full height spanning the full length of the L-shaped roof. Plenty of other fully insulated eaves storage is available at this level which also leads to two other bedrooms and an open plan library/playroom, and another recently upgraded shower room. Most of this floor has been newly floored with oak timber floors and each bedroom has a view of the lake.
The rear gardens are laid in lawn which fall to the lakeside with stone stepped path leading through the mature tall trees to the private beach from which the current owners swim, kayak and fish. An abundance of shrubs are included in the mature planting and the site is tree lined to the south and west. There is a brand-new concrete garden storage shed and some vegetable and berries are planted in the sheltered side garden to the west.
