Substantial & prestigious home of distinction in sought after location
Constructed c.2005 a magnificent and superbly appointed residence extending to some 450 sq metres. The present owners extended the property in recent years and 5 bedrooms (3 en-suite) are featured plus generously proportioned living accommodation to the ground floor. Other features include a magnificent kitchen/dining and a comprehensively equipped ground floor office. Modern homes of this size and style are relatively infrequent to the market and we therefore recommend your early appointment to view.

Proceeding towards Ramelton from the Letterkenny direction turn right just before Woodlands School and then right again after a short distance in to Oak Park Drive. The house will then be found after about 150 metres on the right.
Woodlands First School is regularly oversubscribed and therefore it is important for parents to be living within the catchment area. The comprehensive amenities of Letterkenny are within a 10 minute drive whilst in the opposite direction Ramelton village is just over 5 minutes away.
Letterkenny takes its name from the Irish Leitir Ceanainn meaning ‘Hillside of the O`Cannons` – the O`Cannons being the last of the ancient chieftains of Tir Conaill. Letterkenny is the county`s principal town providing the necessary commercial, retail, social and economic facilities.
There is a large 8 screen cinema complex in the town plus the popular An Grianan Theatre. Behind the latter is the Letterkenny Regional Cultural Centre. The Letterkenny Shopping Centre is the largest centre in the county with leading multiple and individual retailers.
The main schools are Educate Together N.S., Scoil Mhuire Ghan Smal N.S., Ballyraine N.S., Woodlands N.S., Glenswilly N.S., Scoil Colmcille N.S., St. Eunans College, Loreto Convent, The Vocational School, Coláuste Ailigh and the Letterkenny Institute of Technology.
