LOCATED IN THE heart of Letterkenny, Co Donegal, 50 Ard O’Donnell has a remarkable exterior – and plenty to love inside too.

The contemporary property, which was renovated in 2014, sits at the end of a row of more traditional terraced houses. The eye-catching design features bold shapes, sharp edges and feature windows offering views of the surrounding town.

The three-bed townhouse has operated as tourist accommodation for the past five years, but the inviting interior and layout mean the property could easily be used as a family home.

Stepping inside, a glass ceiling in the hallway fills the space with natural light, while tiled floors add a luxe feel. On this floor, there’s a large double bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and a family bathroom which can be accessed from both the hallway and the bedroom. 

On the upper ground floor, the hallway leads to the wine room and/or study, with thermostatically controlled underfloor heating here. The utility room is on this floor, as is another large bedroom with a south-facing aspect. An en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower completes the accommodation here.

The first floor of the accommodation is by far the most impressive, with the open-plan kitchen and living area, formal sitting and dining room, master bedroom and roof terrace here.

Starting with the open-plan space, you’ll find floor-to-ceiling windows in the living area, while a feature glass floor overlooks the entrance hall.

There’s walnut effect laminate flooring in the living area, as well as a multi-fuel stove which can heat the entire property and provide hot water. The V-shaped kitchen is modern and slick, with glossy cabinets, granite worktops, integrated appliances and a breakfast bar.

The formal sitting and dining room has a cosier atmosphere, while Velux windows and a double-height ceiling complement the bright and airy feel of the rest of the property.
