TUCKED AWAY ON a secluded site via a sloping driveway in Letterkenny, Co Donegal, this four-bed property offers more than meets the eye.

Upon first impression, it looks as if it’s a neat bungalow. However, once you step around to the back, it presents itself as a two-storey home with a beautiful curved balcony.

The 2,378 sq ft residence is located on one acre of landscaped grounds, which include beautiful paved patio areas, mature shrubbery, a water feature and a large lawn area.  The site is bordered by trees, while its south-facing orientation enjoys plenty of sunlight all day long.

The property features an impressive facade made from St Johnston stone, finished with a red brick trim. Inside, the accommodation feels both spacious and welcoming, while luxury features add a sense of grandeur. 

The hallway, with a vaulted ceiling and double chandelier, immediately sets the tone for the rest of the house. A set of steps lead to the main living areas of the home, with the kitchen and family room located here.

The open-plan kitchen, dining and living area benefits from vaulted ceilings and multiple picture windows with calming views of the surrounding greenery and Lough Swilly. The kitchen is finished with solid maple units, while black timber beams and granite worktops add a slick contrast. In the living area, double doors open to the large balcony where you can make the most of the sweeping views.

The master bedroom is particularly impressive, with a walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom here. Outside, there’s a detached double garage with a loft area which would make for an ideal home office, playroom or workshop. 

Location-wise, Letterkenny town is a 15-minute drive away, while keen golfers are sure to appreciate being within five minutes of Letterkenny Golf Club.
