Style and privacy by the lake

Killarney €500,000-plus

Style and privacy by the lake

TEN top Killarney district house sites were developed around two man-made lakes, now stocked with trout, at Kilcummin back in the early 2000s, and a couple of houses have since surfaced for sale.

Now, new to market with Property Partners Tadgh Gallivan is Lake View House, guided above the half a million euro mark, and Mr Gallivan reckons it’s one of the best luxury finds in the hinterland.

A bit of a whopper, at nearly 3,900 sq ft, it’s finished to a very high degree throughout, and there’s clearly more to be bought at the price than could be built and finished for this sort of sum. They’re all individually built and styled here, and the Price Register shows No 5 selling back in 2010 for €674,0007.

Lake View House is in Lough Ernie Park at Inchycullane/ Kilcummin, two miles from Killarney near top golf courses, and was developed by a UK man Ernie Marshall, finding favour with golfers.

This five-bed, four-en suite home is on three quarters of an acre described as parkland, set behind electric gates with fully landscaped grounds, complete with conservatory, car-port, PVC decking and views of the McGillicudy Reeks in the near distance and of the pond/lake in the foreground. It’s got a balcony on the front for views.

Stoutly built, with concrete floors and three levels, it’s got electric blinds, recessed lighting, digital controlled zoned oil heating, alarm/ comms system, double garage, and brick perimeter paths,

There’s a porcelain-tiled hall and cherrywood stairs, lounge with walnut flooring and black stone fireplace, drawing room with lake views, top-spec kitchen/dining room with cherrywood units and granite tops, oak-floored dining area, conservatory with oak floor, utility, ground floor guest bedroom, and guest WC.

The first floor has four en suite luxury bedrooms, a hot press and stairs to a top attic level games room and office.

VERDICT: Top notch, and grounded setting.
