€2.75m for 46ac estate with 5-bed residence

Savills has just launched to the market what it brands as “one of Ireland’s finest coastal residential estates” with a guide price of €2.75m.

The portfolio consists of a five-bedroom D1 BER-rated contemporary house of approx. 7,090sq ft, circa 600m of frontage onto Lough Swilly and approx. 46ac of ring-fenced land.

The “compact” residential and agricultural estate with amenities centred upon an “exceptional” contemporary house is in Carniseal, Cairn Low, Ramelton, Co Donegal.

A spokesperson for the property firm said:

“Carniseal offers a rare opportunity to purchase a unique Irish residential estate with water frontage.”

“Centred upon a very special house with a private situation, it also includes an extensive coastline and a useful variety of farmland and amenity land.”

Carniseal House is “strategically positioned” to take full advantage of the “stunning” views over the Fanad peninsula and across Lough Swilly towards Inch Island and beyond to Inishowen.

Arranged over two principal floors and facing south-east, Carniseal House was constructed in the 1990s and is designed in a period style.


Yet, the agent suggests that it has “exceptional” accommodation suitable for contemporary family living and “hosting lavish house parties”.

On the first floor is a galleried landing. It provides access to a south-facing master bedroom suite with a dressing room and shower room.

There are four further bedrooms, a family bathroom, and an office. Situated to the house’s side with separate access is a “useful” annex which provides flexible accommodation. It consists of a studio, shower room, gym, and a garage.

The house, annex, and garage offer “luxurious” accommodation extending to about 658 square metres/ 7,089 square feet in total.

Furthermore, there is a secure general-purpose shed on-site, which has:six bays of steel portal frame construction beneath a box profile roof with box profile cladding, concrete panel walls and a concrete base with a tank beneath.

It includes insulation, an up-and-over roller door and concrete aprons and has water and electricity supplies.


According to the agent, the land – which a local farmer leases on a seasonal basis – is suitable for silage and extends to c. 32-acres.

Lying within a ring-fenced block and with extensive road frontage, the land benefits from stud rail fencing and hedging.

It gently rises from sea level to a high point of about 19 metres (62 feet) on the southwestern boundary.

The fields have water via drinking troughs (mains water supply) and a natural supply (from streams passing through the fields).
