ANNAGH COTTAGE & LODGE
Kilmore, Lough Boderg, Carrick-on-Shannon, County Roscommon, Ireland
A charming lakeside resort with a period cottage and modern lodge set within some 8.35 acres or 3.4 hectares of private grounds and complete with a private harbour and boat slip-way.
Positioned on the western shores of Lough Boderg a large harbour and a separate slip-way provide easy boat access direct onto the lake. Lough Boderg, a substantial lake of some 3,000 acres or 1,200 hectares on the River Shannon, affords good boating and fishing. Lough Boderg is noted for Bream and holds good quality Rudd, Roach and Perch. Together with Lough Tap to its North and Lough Bofin to its South, Lough Boderg forms the centrepiece of a chain of large, varied and navigable waters that are a key part of the renowned Shannon Navigation, the River Shannon being 224 miles or 360 km long and largely navigable along its length. The North Shannon Yacht Club is based on Lough Boderg.
Annagh Cottage pleasantly overlooks the harbour and comprises some 1,636 square feet or 152 square metres of accommodation, which includes a large open plan living room, a kitchen, games room, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. It has a great period character with a large open fireplace and timber panelled ceilings and tremendous lake views. Facing southeast the cottage overlooks the private harbour and onward to Lough Boderg itself.
Annagh Lodge is positioned a little further back from the lake nearby to the top of the boat slip-way. Built circa 1995 in s dormer bungalow style the lodge comprises some 1,582 square feet or 147 square metres of accommodation and includes a large living room with a kitchen area, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom and has a separate guest or staff apartment. It also has a large detached garage. Being privately positioned within some 8.35 acres or 3.4 hectares there is a great sense of tranquility provided within both houses and great amenity for pleasure walks and such like within the grounds, which are partly in lawn and partly in grazing pasture. The lands are interspersed with trees and mature hedgerows, which provide an added sense of calm and added privacy. Whilst being sold together the layout of the lands and position of the house could easily accommodate division into 2 smaller holdings, each with a house and each with access to the lake. Each house has independent water supplies, heating systems, electricity supply and foul drainage systems but currently share an entrance from the public road.
