THE WEST OF Ireland has no shortage of peaceful, tranquil locations where buyers can set up house, but Terryduff’s offering is something truly special.

Tucked into the treeline right on the shore of Lough Conn, this three-bedroom home offers pure solitude, plus incredible views from all angles: not just of the lake, but of Nephin, Ireland’s highest standalone mountain.

With double height floor to ceiling windows in the dining area, plus features like skylights and glass walls throughout the house, this property was clearly designed to make the most of the surrounding nature.

The kitchen, living and dining space is open-plan and full of light, with lake or garden views depending on where you’re standing.

Terryduff’s impressive location and design are matched by a range of high-end features, like the Leicht kitchen with a wine cave and two Gaggenau self-cleaning ovens, sleek poured resin flooring (with underfloor heating, of course) and a standalone bath in the master bathroom.

The grounds and gardens total 2.4 acres, and nature fans will be close to walking, hiking and fly-fishing opportunities too – Lough Conn is known for its brown trout, salmon and Arctic char population.
