Additional Information

This is a unique opportunity to purchase a 60ft tower with fantastic views. Built in 1870 as part of the coastguard station, in recent years the property has been tastefully renovated and refurbished to a high standard. There is also a useful storage space in the basement of the property which would lend itself to conversion to a utility room. Formerly a coastguard station from 1880 to 1923 this 3 storey property extends to some 900 sq ft in total. The property consists of a lounge, kitchen/dining, two bedrooms and bathroom. The property enjoys stunning views of Lough Swilly and is within walking distance of the town centre. The accommodation is well proportioned with high ceilings, Oriel windows and deep window seats which create plenty of character. Buncrana is a beautiful village on the shores of Lough Swilly. The village itself has a selection of good shops, bars and restaurants. Walks from the Village and property lead down to the shore.
