The most apparent feature that hits you when you enter this home is the brightness of it all. Each of the rooms to the front command amazing views of the meandering river and you can lose yourself watching the cruisers glide by on their way north to beautiful Clarendon Lough on onwards to Lough Key, and South on their stunning journey to Leitrim and Carrick on Shannon.

At night the external PIR lighting floods the main deck while long-life fittings light the drive from the soffits of the 2 storey eaves. The lower part of the house is lit at the front steps by a carriage lamp while low level integrated atmospheric lighting illuminates the walls.

The elevation of the house, the mature hedge and distance from the road ensures peace and privacy and the sound of birdsong in the morning is truly stunning while the night skies are breath-taking. A five minute walk brings you to Knockvicar Harbour, one of the most beautiful harbours on the Shannon system and also to the lovely lock walk to Clarendon Lock as it opens the gates to Lough Key.

Finally, Lough Key Forest Park is an absolute gem just minutes away by car and a glorious journey by boat. To celebrate this wonderful facility on our door-step, the present owners are including a full year unlimited access pass to the park.
