DescriptionA contemporary classic, Bunglasha Lodge sits on the water's edge on the famous Lough Derg. With direct access, water frontage and uninterrupted views of the lake, and surrounded by woodlands and pastures, this tranquil property is set on some 1.2 ha (3 acres), and has its own private pier and dock.
Offering tranquil privacy, a spectacular lake front setting, and all the comforts you would expect from an exceptionally well built contemporary space, Bunglasha Lodge is the perfect location for your family, whether as a fantastic getaway spot, or your year-round forever home.
The site is made up of a paddock and lawns, sheltered by the nearby Coillte lands. Built in 2006, Bunglasha Lodge has a massive benefit of owning its shorefront, which makes this property extremely private.
The house itself is built in a contemporary classic style, long and low, to sit well the site, it nevertheless has high internal ceilings, and rooms that are light-filled and airy. Upstairs the dormer bedrooms give you cosy, yet spacious rooms, with magnificent views.
Sailing and fishing enthusiasts will need no introduction to the famed Lough Derg, the jewel of Ireland's River Shannon; while those interested in history will be fascinated to discover the nearby castles, ancient churches and towers in the vicinity.
Your first sight of Bunglasha Lodge is via the sweeping drive, which brings you to an imposing limestone portico entrance, and into a marble-tiled double-height hall with its feature staircase in solid white oak. Look up to the vaulted timber ceiling, with large solid oak beams, and you start to get a sense of the scale and style of this hugely impressive home.
The entrance hall has double doors directly to the exceptionally large living room, that has direct lake views, and French windows to the sunny patio. A solid fuel stove warms the room on cooler days. Nestled in an alcove space is a solid Elm timber bar, making this the perfect room for truly memorable entertaining.
To the right is a formal dining room, and sunny family room, which leads on to the large and well-appointed kitchen / breakfast room. This has marble floor tiles, a fully fitted country pine set of kitchen units, and granite worktops. Again, you have wonderful lake views, so that you can never forget the gorgeous setting of this wonderful house. A utility room off the kitchen keeps all your appliances conveniently close, and as it has side access to another patio, it doubles up as a useful boot room. The utility room also accesses the double garage.
To the left are three bedrooms, the master having lake views, French windows to the patio, an en-suite, and a dressing room. Go up those impressive stairs to find five further bedrooms, one of which is en-suite. Two of these are linked, making it a great set up for children and sleep-overs. You could also convert this extra space to a magnificent single suite, with its own lake-view private sitting room. Set in the eaves, with gently sloping ceilings, and generous dormer and Velux windows, these are charming and restful rooms for tranquil sleep.
The eighth bedroom is a long room with wooden floors that would make a marvellous games room, and with this much space, you're truly spoiled for choice.
Bunglasha Lodge is ideally suited to its site of some approx. 1.2ha (3 acres). Patios wrap around the house, while the gently sloping grounds that lead right to the waters edge are taken care of with terraces. A fountain gives a focal point to your view. As this view encompasses a stretch of Lough Derg's unspoiled beauty, including the historic Holy Island, it's a spot to conjure with.
Mature trees shade the lawns, and the house itself is nestled in carefully chosen planting and shrubbery. Low walls separate the levels, all inviting the eye to the waters and shores beyond. Your own boat can tie up at your private jetty, so trips may be made by water to the nearby pretty towns and villages of Terryglass, Killaloe and Ballina. Cars are, meanwhile, easily housed in the spacious double garage.
Bunglasha Lodge sits in an exceptionally private spot, flanked by woodlands and waters, and yet is completely convenient to Shannon Airport, Limerick City and motorway access to Dublin and Cork.
