50 Ard O’Donnell was renovated in 2014.


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.

There’s access to the west-facing roof terrace from here, which is finished with a mixture of opaque and clear glass surrounding to provide privacy. With outdoor plug points and wiring for surround sound, this space is ideal for entertaining outdoors. 


Completing the accommodation is the master suite on the second floor. The bedroom boats multiple enviable finishes and features, including a southern aspect, sliding wardrobes, an en suite bathroom with a walk-in rain shower and, most impressively, a private balcony with views across to Sheriff’s Mountain in Derry.


With a contemporary design, beautiful views, large living areas and a central location, 50 Ard O’Donnell will appeal to many types of buyer, from families to young couples to someone looking for a new business venture.
