Stragill, Buncrana

Asking Price: €265,000

Stunning location

Rarely can home owners boast of having a sandy beach at the bottom of their garden but this is exactly what’s on offer at this stunning front line property at Stragill outside Buncrana. Locals will understand the extreme beauty this long sandy beach provides and so can anyone else who want to call this property home. Whilst it’s accepted the 5 bedroom bungalow requires renovation, the large 1.8 acre plot really is a show stopper and provides a unique base in which to create something magical. Strongly recommended.
