Stylish home at the foothills of Sliabh Bawn

Situated at the foothills, under the gaze of the Sliabh Bawn mountain, on an elevated site, is a stylish, comfortable three-bedroomed detached home, with sweeping, panoramic views.

‘Radharc na Sléibhe’, Curraghroe, Co. Roscommon, is a 5-minute drive to the picturesque Shannonside village of Ballyleague, complete with schools, shops, sporting facilities, marinas, scenic walks, boating, fishing, etc. School buses pass the front gate for convenience.

A 9-minute drive will bring you to Tarmonbarry, its excellent eateries, and the Shannon-Erne Waterway. 5km north-west there is Strokestown, famous for its famine museum and walled gardens within the stunning environs of Strokestown Park House and Gardens.

Curraghroe itself offers a variety of cycling routes, not to mention the choice of looped walks, trails, picnic areas and panoramic views from the summit of Sliabh Bawn, Roscommon’s third highest mountain, rising to just over 800 ft.

An added attraction is the proximity of two county towns, Roscommon and Longford, both within 15 minutes’ drive, while Ireland West Airport (Knock),  Athlone, Carrick-on-Shannon and Sligo are all within  convenient commuter access.

The house itself is bright, warm and modern, with little or no alterations necessary should a buyer wish to move in immediately. The rooms are bright and airy, with an uninterrupted flow through the south-facing sunroom to the living room/kitchen/dining area, complete with granite-topped kitchen island, Stanley cooker, induction hob, modern, quality bespoke fittings and adjoining utility room. The washing machine and dryer therein are new and are included in the sale, as are all carpets, curtains, light fittings (should the new owner so desire).

A separate sitting room affords comfort and privacy with a cosy fireplace of attractive Italian marble, perfect for those winter nights. The owner has installed an electric fire in the aperture, which can simply be lifted out and returned to its original use.

Two of the three bedrooms come with cleverly appointed ensuites. Indeed the current owner has utilised space very effectively. A clever stroke of the imagination sees the use of a large mirror on the corridor opening up this space magnificently. In addition, there is a generous family bathroom incorporating a fully operational Helo steam unit.

Tasteful presentation and clever use of space, an extensive paved patio, double-glazing, electric gates, tarmac driveway and a PhoneWatch alarm system all combine to add to the appeal of this property. Set on a 0.6 acre site in a choice location, this property is a very  tempting prospect indeed.
