"Boroondara" is a charming property set on a magnificent elevated site with the entire rear aspect looking onto the beautiful Lough Corrib and its environs.

The raised dining area adds to the sense of warmth. It is enclosed by exposed solid wood spindles and double French doors lead to the informal lounge. Again stunning views abound. A granite faux fireplace (which originated in the old Cork courthouse!) looks entirely well placed and could easily be adapted to a solid fuel fireplace /stove, depending on the new owners requirements.

To the front of the mezzanine we find a covered balcony, supported by three columns looking onto the city Tonabrockey & Ballagh. This is indeed an ideal place to relax, read and enjoy the lovely views.
There are four double bedrooms at 1st floor level. Two of these encompass the entire full length of the property and only one word is needed to describe the views to the rearů Awesome! Both of these bedrooms benefit from being en suite and carpeted . All bedrooms come with built in wardrobes and ample built-in presses & shelving. The 3rd upstairs bedroom is situated to the front of the property and comes with vanity unit and sink.
Keeping the best until last, we come to the master bedroom . This room encompasses a generous 300 sq. ft. and has a separate fully tiled en suite. Three large picture windows offer the most amazing views that captivate and delight from dawn to late evening - the colour of the sky and lake change at a whim! Once the sun goes, down the twinkling lights of Annaghdown and Headford appear and one never tires of enjoying this wonderful vista.The bed and built in wardrobes are placed strategically so, on waking, the view is the first thing the lucky new owners will see. What a way to start the day!
The exterior of the residence is very well landscaped with mature shrubbery and trees . The front entrance is tarmacademed while the rear and front patios are laid in Liscannor stone. Double sliding patio doors from the family room make this an ideal place for al fresco dining, whilst enjoying the views.
