Upstairs, there is a vast landing, four large bedrooms, two of which are ensuite and a bathroom. On the second floor, there is a large playroom and study and another bathroom.

The property is centrally located - close to Kilnaleck. Cavan, Longford and Mullingar are all about a half-hour drive. Ballynarry NS is just three kilometres away and the area is served by secondary school bus routes.

“The property is ideally suited to families, especially given its spacious interior and a wide array of amenities. It is also quite rare for a property with views of Lough Sheelin to come available, so this is a great buy,” said auctioneer Raymond Smith.
