A stunning Donegal period home on the shores of Lough Swilly has been sold after an asking price of €500,000 was put on it.
Fahan House has the ruins of an important 6th century monastery which features a 7th century cross slab of St. Mura – a relation of St. Colmcille.
Its most famous resident was Agnes Jones (1832 -1864), a nursing pioneer who spent her early life here. She trained alongside Florence Nightingale and is buried in the nearby graveyard.
Occupying a village centre location this most desirable property is notably within a short distance of Lisfannon Beach and the popular North West Golf Club with its challenging 18 hole links course.
The previous owners undertook a programme of improvements including a major overhaul of the heating system.
The house has nine bedrooms, nine bathrooms, is set on one acre and has various other outhouses and coach-houses.
It is not known who bought the stunning property.
