A WIDER VIEW

OUR fea­ture home this week is a quaint ter­race which has been given a first class de­signer makeover.

The tal­ent of award- win­ning lo­cal ar­chi­tect Des Ewing has been used to give this home a stand out in­te­rior.

Ex­ten­sive use of nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als such as wood, stone and glass give the rooms a dis­tinct and in­di­vid­ual fin­ish while only the best kitchen and san­i­tary ware have been used to com­plete the high end look.

On pages 4 and 5 this week we have a truly unique home that of­fers a won­der­ful way of life.

Duck Cot­tage is one of just a hand­ful of prop­er­ties on the small, un­spoilt is­land of Rut­land just two min­utes by boat from Done­gal.

Spec­tac­u­lar sandy beaches sur­round the is­land which is so un­spoilt it has no roads or mains wa­ter.

Duck Cot­tage is a fairly sub­stan­tial fam­ily home sit­ting right on the wa­ter’s edge with its own moor­ing and slip­way.

But you don’t have to be a com­pe­tent sailor to en­joy this life as a lo­cal boat­man will hap­pily bring you to the main­land when needed.

A high­light of this beau­ti­fully pre­sented home is a won­der­ful first floor loft- style lounge which opens to a bal­cony over­look­ing the sea.
