Views of Lough Corrib from this cleverly designed luxury home
Oranswell, Bushypark, Galway City
Five-bedroom house on two acres
Oranswell is a luxury house which was cleverly designed to make the most of its site with relaxing views over Lough Corrib. Its cleverness is evident in the way in which the design combines traditional cut stone lodge styling exterior with modernist straight line interiors seen at their best in the glazed wing of the house which also captures the sun's lnatural ight and heat.
The 530sqm (5,700 sq ft) property is finished to a high standard and includes as many as seven rooms at ground level in addition to the five bedrooms at first-floor level and three of these are en suite.
In keeping with its lodge style, the spacious lounge has large raised beam ceilings and wide panel oak floors. However, unlike traditional lodges, the beams are painted in a bright colour and are lit by natural light from the eaves-height windows.
A dining room has polished limestone floors with both double doors to the front and French doors to the rear patio while a games room also enjoys similar access.
The kitchen is fitted with walnut units, siltstone counter tops, a breakfast island and floor to ceiling windows.
A studio at this level also has floor to ceiling French doors and a hidden study room. Also located at ground level are a study, guest wc and utility room.
Upstairs the master bedroom extends over split level floors and it also enjoys views through floor to ceiling windows. Its en suite is fully tiled and has a double shower.
Two family bathrooms are located at this level and one of these has a cast iron bath as well as a stand alone shower. The attic can also be easily adapted for a variety of uses as it has red deal floors and twin velux windows.
Outside the garage has twin stores with separate entrances at ground level and a granny flat at first-floor level.
Oranswell's two acres also accommodate landscaped gardens, a tennis court and a rear south facing courtyard.
