Green with envy

A CHANCE to buy into golfer’s heaven will arise on June 8 next when Sherry FitzGerald Hussey Madden auction this unpretentious property at 22, Sandhill Lodge in Lahinch, Co Clare.

And they’re not kidding when they say the property is located in a much sought-after area — it overlooks Lahinch Castle Course, has views over the promenade and the wide sea beyond.

In a quiet, cul-de-sac location it also offers spacious, five-bed accommodation in an airy, open-plan layout. Slightly 70s in style, it has a big fireplace in one end of the main living room, wide picture windows with great views and a kitchen/dining room at the opposite end of the house.

Accommodation also includes a conservatory, five bedrooms, with master ensuite and a main bathroom.

There is the potential to extend the house upwards, says Evelyn Madden, and the large site offers plenty of options.

Quiet and private, it’s still only five minutes walk to the beach and golf course and has easy access to Ennis, Shannon Airport, Limerick and Galway. And 22, Sandhill Lodge is just 20 minutes drive from Doonbeg Golf Course and less again to the Cliffs of Moher and the newly opened Visitors Centre at the Cliffs.
