Set on 28 acres of grounds, this Victorian home is close to Donegal town, and has beautiful coastal views.

With an incredibly picturesque location and beautiful period charm, Magherabeg House is currently on the market for €985,000. Built in the late Victorian era, it retains much of its character, and is set amongst 28 acres of mature grounds with around one kilometre of water frontage.

You approach the house via an avenue lined by mature trees, adding shelter and privacy. The front door has stained glass panels and a fanlight surrounding it, and opens into a large hallway. To the left of this space sits a large dining room with dual aspect and a fireplace.

Beyond this space sits an interconnected drawing room and piano room which has a sheltered patio. A sitting room sits to the right of the entrance hall, with two sash windows and views out to the veranda. 

Further to the right is the kitchen and breakfast room, and to the back of the house sits a study, WC, boot room and utility room. Upstairs there are five bedrooms. The main bedroom has sea views and shares a Jack and Jill ensuite with another bedroom.

Outside, there are a number of outbuildings, including stables and a two-bedroom apartment. The gardens have been carefully landscaped, while there is also an orchard, a greenhouse, rose gardens, a tennis court, and woodlands and fields that lead to the coastline.

As well as being just a short drive from Donegal town and its amenities, this home is also close to Killybegs, Ardara, the Glenties, and Station Island.
