Standing on a site of unrivalled beauty, on the tip of the East End of Inishbofin Island, this property looks out over simply magnificent sea & beach views, with the Mayo coastline & Connemara’s mountain ranges visible on the horizon
With East End beach merely seconds walk away, this stunning property, currently under construction, is undoubtedly sitting in one of Galway’s finest locations. The house is being built to exacting standards, with many outstanding characteristics, including alluring light filled rooms and a purpose-built studio that could easily be converted into a fourth bedroom that takes full advantage of the incredible views.
The property was originally owned by the McHale family. In the 1930s the original stone ruin was abandoned in favour of a cottage built with the Congested District Board. The current owner wanted to re-imagine this past history, making a home that retained continuity with the past but ensuring that new technology could be incorporated. In consultation with the architect and Galway County Council an agreed vision was implemented that captures and ignites the imagination. The result is a cottage that seamlessly blends into the landscape but offers a new owner maximum opportunity to stamp their own unique stamp. The home is being offered at this stage so that the final landscaping reflects their own vision. The stone ruin could be kept as a monument to the past, practical windbreak or demolished to allow open access to the seafront. The latter option has no impact on privacy given the location of the property, on the north side of the bay looking directly south over the ocean with The Twelve Bens of Connemara within direct field of vision. Once taken away, however, the ruin cannot be replaced and the current owner would like to give the new occupant the final choice. The same applies to the choice of internal and external cosmetic finish. The house has been lavishly equipped and fully plastered inside and out with an exceptionally high energy rating, which reflects the extensive use of triple glazing and installation of low energy lighting. The new owner may wish a traditional or modern approach to interior design and the current builder is happy to instal kitchen and sanitary ware of the owners choice and paint the house at a negotiated fee. The same applies to the choice of gravel or concrete lane way. This truly is an extraordinary opportunity to design their future home with all of the hard work associated with building already completed. Time to contact that kitchen designer…….
