Bunnaton, Glenvar, Portsalon

Dilapidated cottage on mature c.1.06 acre site with partial sea view

Currently a roadside cottage in need of rebuilding or complete restoration – the property does however occupy a glorious site with wonderful maturity to its boundaries and quite a good sea view. If rebuilding it should be possible to turn the house to face the sea. The sale is however not subject to any planning permission. Bunnaton is approximately equidistant between Portsalon and Rathmullan, both popular coastal areas with good beaches and sporting amenities.

The cottage comprises hallway, living room, kitchen, 1 bedroom and bathroom.

NB: A further c.1.18 acres adjoining the property for sale by separate negotiation.

Portsalon, one of the county’s most popular holiday locations, is about 30 minutes from Letterkenny. It hosts a fine, challenging 18 hole links golf course (regularly improved by 2014 Ryder Cup Captain Paul McGinley). The village has a well stocked mini supermarket with small restaurant plus further restaurant and bar, by the golf club. Kerrykeel village is just 10 minutes away with local shops and bars. Letterkenny, the county’s principal town has all the amenities expected of a major Irish town.

Up until the 2nd half of the 20th century there was very little in the area. Development since then has largely been measured to protect the natural beauty. Magheradrummond Beach is world renowned – deemed the 2nd most beautiful beach in the world by The Observer.
