Donegal is renowned for its stunning scenery, from its Atlantic coastline and the golden sand of its endless beaches to its majestic mountains and tranquil lakes.

For those who crave the unique tranquillity that Donegal offers, this wonderful spot at Lower Cruit, near Kincasslagh in the north-west of the county, has an unrivalled location.

The farmhouse might be in need of modernisation and the thatched cottages on the site ready for renovation, but it is difficult to think of a more perfect Donegal location.

Sat on around 85 acres, there are views of the Atlantic from every room and two private beaches.

As agents Savills put it, "It is without doubt one of the finest waterfront opportunities to come to the market in a long time."

The property has been owned by the same family since the 1800s with the main four-bed farmhouse built in 1934.

Beside the house is an old granary building which Savills says is in good order and "could be renovated to provide extra accommodation or indeed an extra income subject to the necessary planning permissions".

There are also two derelict cottages which date back to pre-famine times and are a beautiful piece of Irish heritage.

A well maintained lawn surrounds the house, with a feature stone wall and gorse border which offers privacy and shelter. To the east and west it is bounded by the sea.

Perhaps the finest aspect of the property is a private beach, called Greenport, on the east side which is completely bounded by land.

On the west side, beyond the lake, there is an island called Oileán Carraig which can be accessed at low water by foot.

Cruit Island Golf Course - regarded as one of the world's top 100 nine-hole courses - bounds the property to the north-west.
