Four on the market: in Co Roscommon
A choice of four properties available to buy in Co Roscommon.
Cloonakilleg, Mount Talbot
€225k Sherry FitzGerald P Burke, (0906) 627200
The Suck Valley Way is a circular, 100km walk along the River Suck from Mount Talbot to Castlerea and back. Although walkers abandon it south of Mount Talbot, the River Suck continues dividing the people of Galway from the people of Roscommon for many miles, before throwing its lot in with the River Shannon at Shannonbridge. Along the way it passes close to this recently built dormer bungalow on 0.86 of an acre at Cloonakilleg, about two-and-a-half kilometre from Mount Talbot. It has two reception rooms on the ground floor - a living room and a kitchen with an arch to a sunroom. There are two downstairs bedrooms and two en-suite bedrooms upstairs.
Lissanisky, Mote Park, Roscommon
€210k Sherry FitzGerald P Burke, (0906) 627200
The townland of Lissanisky lies just south of the Mote Park demesne near Roscommon town. Although the house itself was demolished over half a century ago, the whole area is dotted with interesting antiquities. This bungalow in the neighbourhood was built in 2002 and has since been upgraded with better insulation and heating, so that it now has a BER of C2. It stands on half an acre, much of which consists of a back garden facing south over pleasant, open countryside. The floor area is 1,451 sq ft, all on one storey, with four bedrooms at one end of the house and a living room, eat-in kitchen and sunroom at the other. There's also a detached garage.
12 Port Álainn, Knockvicar, Boyle
€279,900 REA Brady, (071) 962 2444
Number 12 was formerly the showhouse in the Port Álainn development - a cluster of holiday homes set at Tara Marina on the River Boyle. You can moor a boat in the marina and there's a service charge of €635 a year. The house itself is detached with some unusual and fetching features, including a first-floor gallery landing with views of the marina. The ground floor has two reception rooms and a kitchen as well as one en-suite bedroom, and there are two more en-suite bedrooms upstairs. Boyle is about 10 kilometres away and there's a train station there on the Dublin-Sligo line.
€410k DNG Cregg O’Callaghan, (0906) 665100
Part of the famous Leitrim town of Carrick-on-Shannon is actually in Co Roscommon, as is the townland of Cloongownagh, about four kilometres from Carrick on the Roscommon side. This rambling detached property at Cloongownagh is well placed, though, to take advantage of the Shannon amenities. As well as the house, its acre of grounds includes two self-contained accommodation units for renting out to Shannon-bound boating types. The floor area comes to 2,800 sq ft with, in the main house, three bedrooms, two reception rooms, a study and a kitchen. As well as the two guest accommodation units, other outbuildings include a wooden cabin with a six-seater hot tub.
