Description

We are delighted to introduce to the market “Diamond View Cottage”, which is a 3 bedroom cottage in need of restoration, located in a prime location in Letterfrack. Also included in this sale is circa 5.9 acres of ground located across the lane from the house which runs all the way to the sea shore of Letterfrack Bay and a share in commonage.

 

Diamond View is a two story farmhouse that we believe was built about a century old. Located on a quiet slip way, it is a short stroll before you are in the heart of Letterfrack Village, which is a hive of activity throughout the year due to the nearby GMIT college campus and the landmarks of the Connemara National Park and Diamond Hill. This makes it a popular tourist destination also. Letterfrack offers a host of amenities including a school, creche, supermarket, restaurants, bars and more!

 

While the property is in need of complete renovation, this gives a discerning buyer huge scope to reimagine Diamond View into a their dream property and explore its full potential.

THE LOCAL AREA

 

Letterfrack village is a very busy little village with three pubs, a lovely restaurant, café, book shop and a very well stocked supermarket. Letterfrack hosts a number of small festivals during the year – the most notable being Sea Week in October which is a celebration of all things maritime and includes walks, talks, exhibitions, and some very fine traditional music, and Bog Week in May which celebrates the local flora and fauna and again attracts many fine musicians, lecturers and poets. The furniture college in Letterfrack turns out some fine woodworkers and every year puts on an exhibition of the best work of the graduating class.

The village of Tullycross is an easy drive from the house and boasts two pubs and the Maol Rae hotel which serves lunches and dinners.

The Connemara National Park is just across the road from Letterfrack and provides a selection of lovely walks from wooded to mountainside, including one to the top of Diamond Hill. Staff at the park run activities for children during the summer months and the information centre gives a good history of the area.

Kylemore Abbey and Gardens is also just a 10-minute drive from the house. The Abbey is currently host to students from the famous Notre Dame University, but the spectacular and historic building on the edge of Kylemore Lake is open to the public and the grounds provide lovely lakeside walks. There is an extensive shop and coffee shop catering to tourists. The old walled Victorian gardens, which have been restored and refurbished, display a great variety of plants and trees and bring one back to another era.
