Contemporary / Cedar Clad Extension / Exquisite Valley & Lake Views
Keentlea, Clifden Hill, Corofin, Co. Clare V95 K7C1
Positioned on an elevated hillside plot, overlooking the valley below, with stunning views of Inchiquin Lake and beyond to Mullaghmore and the Burren. This remarkable three-bedroom house was renovated by its current owners with sensitivity, creating a tranquil and calm space. A contemporary facade of a cedar-clad extension added a striking light-filled addition in 2014. Renovations have been made to the house over the years, with a focus on improving the inside-outside connection and the internal flow between rooms.
Located on a quiet road, the property is approached via electric gates with the gravel driveway providing ample parking. Internally, the space is enhanced by creative interior design which adds to the drama of the split-level living areas. Accommodation now flows between the various zones, with views linking the spaces.
Entry is through a light filled lobby which leads to an open-plan floor with kitchen and dining area with steps down to a living room with double height ceiling. Front-facing windows and floor-to-ceiling glazing across the rear aspect flood the space with natural light, whilst offering eye-level views to the valley & lakes below. From the hallway, to the left there is a spacious & luxurious bathroom. Down the steps leads to three bedrooms, one of which is en-suite.
The garden (circa 1.3 acres) in its maturity and dramatic contours, offers a sense of seclusion and privacy. Steps made from railway sleepers meander down the garden to views of the small waterfall and the woodland beyond. Clifden Hill, on which the property is located, is approximately 2km from Corofin Village, which provides a good range of shops and services and is the gateway to the Burren region & the Wild Atlantic Way.
