POSITIONED WITHIN JUST a five-minute walk of Lough Corrib in Clonbur, Co Galway, Golden Bay Lodge is a show-stopping property.
The detached bungalow is situated on 6.3 acres of grounds and is on the market for €825,000 through Sherry FitzGerald. The accommodation includes the main four-bed lodge, as well as a one-bed self-contained annex to the rear.
The grounds at Golden Bay Lodge are cleverly designed to provide shelter and privacy, as well as picturesque views of Lough Corrib and the Maumturk Mountains.
A BBQ terrace is the ideal spot to entertain outdoors, while there are multiple winding paths through rock gardens and wooded areas across the 6.3 acres.
The total floor area of the property is an impressive 5,087 sq ft, with picture windows throughout the chic and charming interior bringing the outside in.
Stepping into the entrance hall, the space is bright and airy and this feeling carries through the rest of the house. All floors in the property are wooden.
A curved wall leads to the open-plan living area, with views of the garden, lake and mountains through the sliding glass doors creating a show-stopping impression.
There’s plenty of room to comfortably unwind and to entertain in here, or you can easily move through the doors to the BBQ area. The kitchen is tucked away to the side, with contemporary units and counter tops in here, as well as an Aga and a breakfast bar. If one kitchen isn’t enough, there’s also a separate staff kitchen.
The four bedrooms in the main house are all doubles, with cherrywood fitted wardrobes, and garden and lake views in each. The master bedroom is particularly impressive, with a dressing room and en suite bathroom from here.
The annex is located to the rear, comprising one bedroom, two bathrooms and a kitchen/living area. This space is ideal for guests, or members of the family craving their own independence.
Golden Bay Lodge’s new owners are sure to want to make use of the property’s prime location close to the lake, with plenty of water activities including fishing, kayaking, swimming and boating to enjoy here.
Cong and Clonbur villages are less than a 10-minute drive away, while Galway city can be reached in under an hour.
