Douglas Village - on circa half acre


Irish Examiner House of the Week

A unique opportunity to acquire a well located property on the Douglas Estuary within a few minutes walk of Douglas Village.
Suitable for  modernisation or replacement and having elevated views over the Estuary
One of only 4 residences with frontage to the Douglas River

This is not ‘what it says on the tin’.

First impressions are of a 2 or 3 bed bungalow but when you open the door you get quite a surprise. You enter a long south facing sunroom which gets the sun all day long.

This opens into a lovely hallway with stairs to Livingroom ad Kitchen.

The large family or TV room is off the hallway with doors opening to the sunroom, fireplace and tv/powerpoints

Four bedrooms are down the hall, two with en-suites and there is a bathroom under renovation in this wing.

Upstairs from the hallway is a spacious livingroom and the first thing that strikes you is the fabulous view over the estuary through the floor to ceiling bay windows.
This is a bright room with oak floor, fireplace in mahogany surround and fabulous elevated views over the Douglas Estuary and gardens. (7.27 x 3.92m / 23.8 x 12.1ft)

Downstairs is the large Kitchen.


Laid out like an old farmhouse kitchen but with a full fitted range of wall and floor presses, sink, oil-fired Aga range, gas oven and hob, tiled splashback, sliding doors to patio. Again there are elevated views of the garden and estuary.
There is a large walk-in hotpress/airing room with shelving and dual immersion and door to the side.
The Utility room is plumbed for washing machine and dryer.
Guest W/c and shower with enclosed shower cubicle and toilet.


The house is approached by a tarmac driveway with walled borders.

There are double timber gates leading to a sloping path which opens out to a sloping mature garden and large paved patio.

The gardens are the main feature of the property sloping gently towards the shore of the Douglas Estuary. There is a profusion of shrubbery and magnificent tall trees on the boundary.
There is a large shed or barn and the waters edge cries out for a deck to be installed.

The sale of this property offers opportunities to renovate and modernise or to knock and build a modern family home on three levels with glass frontage to the river.

While in a waterside location with country feel, you are two minutes walk of the friendly village of Douglas with its two shopping centres, cinema, hotels and leisure centres, schools, shops, restaurant and bars, etc
