The "Lower House" in the townland of Knockglass (translated "green hill"), Malin is nestled in rolling farmland approximately halfway between Ireland's most northerly point at Malin Head and the quaint village of Malin Town. The house is over 250 years old and has been carefully refurbished in recent years to maintain its character and charm; back in the day it was part of a clachan (group of houses) in a small rural community on a farm. Many of the houses remain and are either no longer occupied or demolished. The "Lower House" sits at the edge of a working farm with just 2 neighbouring households where once there were more than 7 houses. Part of the house in fact was a shop that served the local community.
The house itself is 1 1/2 story with two interconnected living/dining rooms, well-stocked kitchen, utility with laundry facilities, a shower W/C, bathroom, 4 double bedrooms and one large open-plan bedroom (with 3 single and 1 double bed) and two wood-burning stoves. Finished internally with lime render and with exposed structural timbers the design and decor intentionally aims to create a comfortable, cosy ambience.
There is a fireguard, removable stair gates on one stair case (not on the spiral stairs), childs high chair and kitchen utensils suitable for kids.
Externally in a fully enclosed garden there are 3 lawns and two patios with BBQ, fire pit and garden toys, swing, see-saw - to keep children entertained. Walks or short drives in several directions take you to dramatic clifftop views over Trawbrega Bay and the whole of the north Donegal coast, the stunning Five Fingers Strand.
If you want to get away from it all, detach yourself from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and soak up the amazing scenery of the Atlantic coast then this area and this house should be top of your list!
