Ruan in Co Clare is within 10km of Ennis and close to the M18 Motorway, an ideal place for a country house and a few acres.

A 40ac residential farm with a five bedroom modern house, a farmyard, its own 5ac lake, woodland, and a parcel of good grazing ground at Dromore Woods near Ruan makes for a superb package. It is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €875,000.

Standing on an elevated rural site the stone clad Lough Garr House was built in 2001 and forms the centrepiece of this lovely property.

The two-storey building extends to 3,300 sq ft and is finished inside and out to a high specification with attic conversion for storage.

Ground floor accommodation includes a drawing room, an open plan, fully fitted kitchen, a dining room, an ensuite bedroom and a study. On the first floor are four spacious, ensuite bedrooms. The attic with plenty of storage space completes the picture.

The private avenue leading to the main house is bounded by mature trees.

A patio to the rear of the house overlooks the lake and surrounding countryside while the lawn area at the front overlooks the fields and wooded area.

Immediately adjacent to the house is a 1,600 sq ft Bradstone storage building with four roll-up garage doors.

The farmyard is located about 200m from the house and has its own access from the road. The buildings extend to 2,100 sq ft and include a slatted house, cattle handling facilities and utility sheds,

The 40ac of land is made up of 29ac in pasture, 5ac of private lake with about 6ac covered by buildings, lawns, roads and woodlands.

Paddy Darmody of Ennis selling agents Sherry FitzGerald McMahon describes the land as good dry limestone ground laid out in a number of manageable fields divided by electric fences with water laid on to every division.
