Daniel O’Donnell’s former mansion, Donegal Shore House, is back on the market with a €1m price tag.
Savills is handling the sale of the property at Kincasslagh, Co Donegal, F94 A2P2, which sold for €3m in 2007.
According to the selling agent, the coastal property is on a cliff edge with “uninterrupted, breath-taking views” across this Atlantic inlet between Cruit Island and the Donegal mainland.
“The house has been beautifully designed to take advantage of the spectacular, panoramic views over the bay and surrounding scenery.”
The front door opens into a semi-circular entrance hall, joining a proportioned reception hall with a galleried landing and an ornate fireplace with pillared marble surround.
The reception hall leads to a further inner hallway. This gives access to three bedrooms (all en suite), a study, drawing room and kitchen.
To note, the kitchen has an “extensive” range of floor and wall mounted units with granite-topped surfaces. Walking through the kitchen is a morning room followed by the dining room.
“The dining room is a magnificent split-level, open-plan room, which is beautifully finished with an ornate electric fire enclosed in marble, providing an elegant feature. The room is glass-fronted, which allows for spectacular views out onto the bay.”
The first floor comprises three en suite bedrooms in total. The master bedroom suite is a well-proportioned room. It has access to a large balcony that captures the “spectacular” views of the bay across to Carrickfinn.
It includes a two-storey dressing room with an extensive range of fitted and built-in cupboards and wardrobes. The master suite includes a bathroom with a jacuzzi whirlpool bath, which is elevated and inset to a mosaic tiled bay window with stunning sea views.
Furthermore, the second floor includes a landing with access to two further bedrooms and a storeroom.
Gardens and seating areas
The gardens are laid out in a series of terraced lawns and are separated by a variety of pathways and pretty stone walls.
To the rear are two paved terraced seating areas, which can be accessed from the main reception room and lead down via block paved steps to a fabulous decked lookout point, positioned on the edge of the cliffs.
Also, to the northern edge of the garden, a series of steps and paths lead down to a timber-built summer house with extensive decking and a barbeque area for outdoor entertainment.
Furthermore, situated to the front of the house is a triple garage and plant room extending to about 1,647 sq ft. It has lofted storage.
