Roughpark, Ramelton

Fine scenic & private site of c.3 acres with derelict house

An extremely rare opportunity to acquire a rural site/smallholding with fine country views and accessed via a private lane. The derelict house is situated on a far boundary and is thus not ideal. However planning permission for a substantial dwelling more centrally situated on the land should not be a problem. This very appealing property is situated within a few minutes of The Mall in Ramelton and in the opposite direction just 12 – 14 minutes from the town of Letterkenny. Your early inspection is strongly recommended. Offers in excess of €70,000. Closing date for offers 12.00 on Thursday 31st August 2017 (unless previously sold).

 

Coming towards the town of Ramelton from the Letterkenny direction turn right at the ‘Cup & Saucer’ and turn sharp right after about 150 metres. Continue on this road for approximately 0.25 mile and the entrance to the site is on the right just after a mushroom farm on the left. Our For Sale sign identifies access to the site.

The name Ramelton derives from the Irish name Ráth Mealtain which means ‘The Fort of Mealtain’. It is a Bord Failte designated Heritage Town on the banks of the River Lennon. The old warehouses at the end of The Mall are amongst the most fascinating buildings in Donegal. They formed the backdrop for the highly acclaimed BBC Television Series ‘The Hanging Gale’.

The town now has its own park and tennis club plus a good range of local shops. The famous ‘Bridge Bar’ is a renowned music venue and has its own restaurant. Easy access is afforded to the coastal areas of Rathmullan, Portsalon and Dunfanaghy (each around 15 minutes distant). Letterkenny, the county’s principal town is just 12 -15 minutes away. Local schools include Drumman N.S., St. Marys N.S., Ayr Hill N.S. and Scoil Naomh Cholmcille.
