Good residential property is in demand in Oughterard, and Canrawer is a prime area.

It has a lovely quiet rustic ambience, but it is within 10 minutes’ walk of the town and all amenities, schools, shops, churches.

Houses do not come on the market in Canrawer very often, but Frank Conroy Auctioneers handling the sale of a very attractive residence on a site of over half-an-acre, with planning permission for further development.

The house has a living room, dining room, three bedrooms, a study/bedroom and a bathroom. It is in immaculate condition and in excellent decorative order. To the rear, there is a chalet which has not been in use for some time and needs renovation. However, there is full planning permission for a new, stylish two-bed chalet.

The grounds around the house are very well kept and are stocked with a variety of trees, shrubs and flowers. There is a shingled drive and ample parking for several cars.

The Oughterard area has been in demand for many decades as a place to retire or have a holiday home. Lough Corrib itself, with its wonderful game and coarse fishing, has attracted people from all over, and the area has great beauty. There are wonderful facilities for activities such as golf, walking and cycling.

Oughterard is very well known as a centre for the Connemara pony and many locals keep ponies. This property has a fine paddock on which to graze a couple of ponies and a shed which could easily be converted to stables.

The asking price is €298,000. For further information or to arrange a viewing, contact Frank Conroy Auctioneers on 091 552503.
