An asking price of €395,000 has been placed on a fine two-storey house on five acres at the foot of the Ox Mountains in Co Sligo.
Built in 1984 at Loughill, Cloonacool, the property is described by local auctioneer Roger McCarrick as top quality land with road frontage on two sides.
It is currently used mainly as an equestrian property and comes with a 40m x 20m sand arena and extensive farm buildings located 50m behind the house.
These include 40ft x 13ft open sheds, a hayshed with double lean-to and a lofted area.
The house itself has a hallway, sitting room, office/playroom, kitchen/dining room and utility room on the ground floor. Upstairs there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The house is surrounded by a well-maintained garden and has expansive views of the fabled 'fairy hill' Knocknashee.
The property is located in a well-populated rural area, two miles from Cloonacool village, six miles from Tubbercurry and a 25-minute drive to Sligo town.
The well-known Woodlands Equestrian Centre is located only 200 yards from the house.
