DONEGAL IS KNOWN for its incredible landscape: there’s the Atlantic coastline, Slieve League, the Barnesmore Gap, the Inishowen peninsula and more.
So if you’re in the market for a house in Ireland’s second-largest country, it’s worth holding out for one that takes advantage of some of those incredible vistas. Enter Farland View, a split-level home around 15 minutes northeast of Letterkenny.
This five-bedroom property looks out over Lough Swilly and Inch Island, and the layout means you’ll be able to enjoy the spectacular views from multiple parts of the house.
The sweeping balcony to the front of the house, the main living room with its curved windows and the sunroom with its large, double aspect window all offer uninterrupted views over the water. Taking a break from gazing outside? Head to the cinema room or the sauna instead.
The large dining room is a feature in itself, with a double height ceiling, parquet flooring and solid oak doors. In the kitchen, you’ll find a Belfast sink, integrated hob, oven and dishwasher and a kitchen island.
All five bedrooms are positioned to take advantage of those breathtaking views, with extras like a dressing room in the master bedroom, standalone bath in the master bathroom, and tiled wet room off one of the other bedrooms.
As well as being close to Letterkenny, Farland View is around ten minutes from the centre of Derry. Nearby are the Inch Lake wildlife reserve, Grianan Fort and Burt Chapel.
