A delightful late-Georgian County Home spectacularly positioned overlooking Donegal Bay, above sandy Rossnowlagh beach is on the market for a stunning €2million.
Dating to 1820, the Manor House is positioned within some 11 acres or 4.45 hectares of pastoral lands and includes two Coach House guest apartments, leisure facilities and an equestrian complex. Accommodation within the house extends to some 3,551 square feet or 330 square metres and includes three reception rooms, a country kitchen, three bedrooms and four bathrooms.
The guest apartments combined comprise some 2,878 square feet or 267 square metres of accommodation and provide a further three bedrooms. In all the accommodation extends to some 6,429 square feet or 597 square metres and is in excellent condition.
Coolmore Manor House is idyllically positioned along Ireland’s renowned and picturesque ‘Wild Atlantic Way’, on the periphery of the small village of Rossnowlagh and within a short stroll of its sandy beach.
There are many walks in the area, including the famed Cliff Walk from the village to Bundoran town. Breathtaking views look over the bay to the Blue Stack and Slieve League mountains.
The serene position of Coolmore Manor House is of little surprise, given it was historically a boutique hotel.
It is locally recanted that the author Margaret Mitchell stayed at the hotel as a long-term resident while writing or preparing for her classic novel ‘Gone with the Wind’, no doubt inspired by the enviable beauty.
Bundoran town is 9 miles or 14.8 km away and Donegal Town 12 miles or 19.5 km away.
Coolmore Manor House was extensively and sympathetically renovated between 2008 and 2011, and has since been meticulously maintained and further improved.
The renovation and upgrading programme extended throughout the property with 2 well-appointed apartments created in the old coach house, a small leisure suite with a hot tub and sauna and treatment room created to nestle into a secluded courtyard immediately behind the house and high-specification equestrian facilities created.
The stable yard occupies a central position on the lands and has an independent laneway to the road. A large American style barn is equipped with a feed room, hay loft, tack room, wash bay and 8 large stables, 6 opening out to fenced outdoor yards.
A well-drained outdoor arena measures 50 metres by 25 metres (roughly 165 feet by 82 feet), remarkably positioned and with superb views. In all there are 12 fenced grazing paddocks.
Where equestrianism is not to be of any interest the barn is insulated and constructed so that the internal divisions can be removed to provide a large open space ideal, perhaps, for motor cars, occasional parties or indoor sports.
The adjacent village of Rossnowlagh has a little shop, a primary school and noted taverns and restaurants.
