Farland View offers a unique and rare opportunity to experience luxurious country living in the highly sought after area of Burt, Co. Donegal. This property boasts one of the most impressive vistas in the country, enjoying panoramic and spectacular views over Lough Swilly and Inch Island. Because of its position, it enjoys sun from early morning until late in the evening.
This house is also ideally located for the commuter, being a mere 10 minutes’ drive from Derry/Londonderry and 15 minutes from Letterkenny. Grianan Fort, which attracts tens of thousands of tourists annually, is two miles away and the award winning An Grianan hotel is only half a mile away on the main Derry to Letterkenny road. The iconic Burt Chapel, which was awarded building of the century, is situated just below the house and, just beyond that, the Inch Lake wildlife reserve, famed nationally for providing a winter home for many migrating geese and swans.
The house itself comprises two distinct levels. The upper level, which is accessed through the main door, contains a large and elegant dining area with a roof top window dome, a substantial drawing room, rounded at one end with large windows, taking full advantage of the views. Adjacent to the dining area is a tastefully designed fitted kitchen which adjoins a snug living room with multi fuel stove. Just off the kitchen area is a utility room which leads to the back door and a walk-in, shelved pantry. As well as two bedrooms, this level has a large sun room with uninterrupted views of Lough Swilly, including the Fanad Peninsula, and its glorious sunsets.
The bottom floor of the house comprises three more ensuite bedrooms, each enjoying unrivalled views, a hobby room, office, bathroom, sauna and access to a large garage. One of these bedrooms is the master bedroom with adjoining wet room and dressing room.
This property has been finished to an exacting standard with no expense spared in its construction. Heating is provided by an oil fired boiler and the BEAM hoovering system has been fitted.
The mature gardens on this elevated site complement entirely the house itself, having been developed over a number of years by the current owners, both keen gardeners. The paving, kerbing and other decorative features have been very tastefully done and for the security conscious, there is outside lighting, a monitored alarm system and electric gates.
In recent years, Farland View has been run as a very successful and upmarket B and B, hosting visitors to the local beauty spots and tourist attractions, and providing accommodation for guests attending weddings at An Grianan hotel. Comments in the Visitors’ Book are indeed testimony to the quality of this house and the beauty of the local area.
