A PENINSULA with its own private jetty, part of the historic Crom Estate has come on the market priced at a cool £175,000. Reilly’s Point, which extends to four acres, includes Reilly’s Cottage, the former gamekeeper’s cottage at the estate.
Owned by Lord and Lady Erne the unique listing came on the market just at the end of last week and already there is significant demand according to Simon Brien Residential Estate Agents, who are in charge of the listing.
“From it being on the market only a matter of days we have a lot of enquires on it, a lot of people actually wanting to go and view the property so I’m fairly confident it should go well,” explained Associate Mark Leinster.
“It’s absolutely stunning, the cottage itself obviously is quite run down and would need work, but the peninsula itself is amazing, the views are out of this world.”
The four acre peninsula with private jetty features Reilly’s Cottage, a three bedroom layout with living room, kitchen and bathroom which would require some general modernisation throughout.
Whether as a permanent home or a holiday weekend retreat, Reilly’s Point is described as ‘the perfect hideaway’.
Mr Leinster told the Herald that to date there has been no interest locally in the listing, but stated it was still early days.
“The people I have spoken to today and over the weekend certainly they would be from greater Belfast, north Down, looking for a second home in the Fermanagh area.
“In my mind it is going to be somebody fairly wealthy who will want a second home or a holiday home or something like that, but time will tell.”
Also still on the market is Inisliroo Island on Upper Lough Erne, located approximately 500 yards from Knockninny Pier in Derrylin. The 18 acre island has full planning permission for a new family dwelling and its own private dwelling and is one of only 365 islands on Lough Erne. It is on the market priced at £250,000. Both listings are available through Simon Brien Residential.
