Sugarloaf has spectacular views of Lake Inchiquin and the surrounding countryside

As well as being something of an 'angler's paradise', Lake Inchiquin, found near Corofin in Clare, is a well-known wildlife habitat, with kingfishers, grey herons and white-tailed eagles.

On its northern shore is the ruin of Inchiquin Castle, the former residence of the O'Briens. You can still see part of the tower and the banqueting hall, complete with spiral staircase. People who don't live in the locality like to picnic there.

If you lived at Sugarloaf, atop nearby Clifden Hill, you'd be more likely to picnic in your own garden. It's a detached three-bedroom house on one-and-a-half acres, and it has expansive views of Lake Inchiquin and the Burren.

The property has been recently refurbished and extended, so that it's now 2,205 sq ft in size, with here-and-there exposed stone walls and roof beams, and steps wandering up and down, this way and that.

There are three main reception rooms - a dining room, a living room and an unusual mezzanine-level library overlooking the living room below. This room is currently furnished with a telescope, from which you might spy on the neighbours. . . if there were any neighbours to spy on, which there aren't.

There's also a kitchen, utility room and store room, as well as the three bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bathrooms.

The one-and-a-half acres of gardens include a patio outside the front door and a deck positioned to take best advantage of the view.

There's also a huddle of stone outbuildings on the grounds, and the property is self-sufficient for both water and waste treatment, so there are no water charges to worry about.
