Further Information

Savills is delighted to present Molua, a charming 4 bedroom detached lakeside residence perched on the water's edge and enjoying a south westerly aspect with uninterrupted views down to Parteen Weir and across the river to the County Clare countryside.

The essence of Molua is the outstanding water aspect, framed by wonderful mature gardens and coupled with its own private harbour. The accommodation is laid out to take full advantage of the views. The main reception rooms have large picture windows and access to the sheltered terrace which runs the length of the house. The terrace is a wonderful suntrap and a perfect spot to enjoy the ever changing canvas of the Lower Lake / river, whether it is early in the morning or watching the magic sunsets over the water. At one end of the house is found the Spa room which has a large Jacuzzi and also enjoys far-reaching water views. This spacious room could be used for a number of purposes and would make the ideal sun room with its double doors leading directly into the garden. The one bedroom annex is flexible space with direct access to the main house but also could be used as its own self-contained accommodation. It has a small kitchenette, bathroom and off the bedroom is the sun porch.

The property extends to approximately 1.9 acres of mainly lawn and mature woodland interspersed with shrubberies and flowerbeds. A major feature of Molua is its waterfrontage, large covered harbour and slipway. This part of the lower lake is generally considered very quiet and private as there are few properties and much less river traffic.

The grounds of Molua contain many mature trees such as oak, beech, ash, walnut, hazel, alder and birch. The woodland garden, which is predominantly herbaceous perennials and shrubs, features ornamental trees such as magnolia, dogwood, Japanese maple, Daphne and stewartia. Amongst the shrubs are unusual specimens of rhododendrons, hydrangeas and camellias. In late winter / early spring, the woodland area comes alive with snowdrops, daffodils, bluebells, crocus and woodland anemone. This is a low maintenance garden expertly created and developed by the current owners over the last 20 years. There is also a much-loved tree-house.

Area Guide

Molua is within walking distance of the heritage villages of Ballina and Killaloe, which are connected by a bridge over the Shannon. The villages are situated at the southern end of Lough Derg and are a mecca for all water sports whether sailing, water skiing, boating or fishing. In fact, Killaloe has in the past been voted as the one of the most desirable place to live in Ireland (Irish Times – Best places to live in Ireland).

The outdoor enthusiast could not be better placed as there are plenty of sports clubs and the whole area is a walker's and cyclist's pleasure ground. The Lough Derg Way passes through Killaloe / Ballina and continues along the Tipperary side of the lake.

There is an abundance of good restaurants, hotels, coffee shops and pubs in Killaloe and Ballina, including the Cherry Tree, Goosers, Ponte Vecchio and the Wooden Spoon.

Ballina / Killaloe will cater for everyday requirements and both Limerick city and Nenagh town are within 20-25 minutes' drive along the M7. Both locations offer all the large supermarkets and high street stores together with good boutique shopping.

The opening of the M7 motorway from Dublin to Limerick has greatly improved travel time. Dublin is under 2 hours' drive, while Shannon Airport is within 40 minutes and the University of Limerick within 20 minutes. There are a number of schools in Ballina, Killaloe and the surrounding areas for children of all ages and levels. Private secondary schools are available at Glenstal Abbey (Boys Day and Boarding school) and a choice in Limerick city.
