Property of the Week – Lakeland Bliss


Luxury modern living in beautiful Fermanagh.

BUILT within the last few years it is easy to see why Drumcon House ranks among the finest modern country homes in Fermanagh.

Sitting on a beautiful elevated site with views across the countryside to Lough Erne a lot of time and money has gone into the design and sourcing of the perfect high end materials to give this superb home a very special finish throughout.

But while it is an impressive building it is not overpowering and the layout is practical for family living with a very homely feel.

There is an extensive 7100 sq ft of exquisitely styled accommodation which includes a drawing room, dining room, family room, utility room, ground floor cloakroom, first floor lounge with balcony, spacious modern kitchen/ dining/living room, master suite with dressing room and en suite bathroom, five bedrooms, three with en suites and a shower room.

Setting this property apart is the incredible attention to detail which can be found in the many designer bathrooms and kitchen, hardwood sliding sash windows, curved staircase with French polished handrail, reclaimed oak parquet flooring and antique fireplaces.

There is also under floor heating throughout powered by a Guntamatic wood pellet boiler.

One extra special feature is a spa-like leisure suite with indoor pool, gym and relaxation area.

This opens out into the gardens and is a wonderful place to relax or burn a few calories at any time of the year.

The house is set in professionally landscaped gardens and adjoining agricultural land extending to approximately 28.

5 acres and also comes with a large double garage with self contained apartment above.

Electric gates open onto a driveway which cuts through the extensive grounds to a large parking area at the front and side of the property.

When you step inside the reception hall you immediately get a sense of the luxury of this home with its polished porcelain flooring, painted wood panelled walls, gorgeous feature curved staircase with mahogany treads and French polished handrail which leads to a minstrel gallery landing.

Double doors open to the dining room finished with reclaimed oak parquet flooring and featuring a beautiful antique marble fireplace and French doors opening to a patio.

This room opens onto the lovely drawing room where a vaulted ceiling adds drama and the reclaimed oak parquet flooring gives a rich finish while a wood burning stove creates a homely feel. French doors with an arched fanlight open to an enclosed terrace.

The kitchen is a sleek and beautiful contemporary designer space, bright and open with a large bank of glass windows and doors and a feature curved wall.
