Corduff House, Ballinamore, Co. Leitrim
Private early 1700s restored period house with 10,000 sqft of usable space
Corduff House dates back to the early 1700s and is a listed building steeped in history. It is one of only a few houses of this period in pristine condition. The house underwent extensive but sensitive restoration in 2007 following a fire in the top section of one wing. The extent of this restoration was: a complete new roof using slates of the period, all new hard wood double-glazed windows throughout, high levels of insulation, rewired, fire alarm system, replumbed and totally redecorated. The original ceilings, covings, and floors were saved on the first floor.
The house is accessed via a 1/4 of a mile tree lined drive, with two stone entrance piers and an electric gate on the final stage for security. It also has a CCTV system. There is a lake to the front of the house, and within a radius of 5 miles another 44 lakes, providing an excellent base for many sporting or commercial activities. The house is 3.2 km or 2 miles from the nearest town of Ballinamore, 15 km or 12 miles from Enniskillen, 150 km or 100 miles from Belfast, Dublin, or Galway and 70 km or 40 miles from Sligo or Knock, all of which have airports.
Basement: 8 large useable rooms, plus a wine cellar, oil fired burner, large wood burning furnace, which provides all the heat and hot water necessary. With an ample supply of timber on the estate, this makes for a very economical house to heat. The oil is a back up system. The basement is accessed via an internal stairs or via the court yard.
First floor: double entrance halls with main stairs to second floor, large drawing room with 12 foot high ceilings and fire place, large sitting room with 12 foot high ceilings and fire place, dining room, kitchen, laundry room, back hallway with second stairs to second floor and stairs to basement, outside hallway with access to one of the two garages, downstairs toilet and wash basin.

What was the coach house is now a modern building with pumped cavity insulated walls, and could now be used as another house. There is approximately 3.5 acres of mature gardens with many beech and chestnut trees, with part of this walled in. The house is in excellent condition with no money to be spent. It is fully furnished, with some of the furniture being antique. The furniture could be negotiated and there is approximately 10,000 sqft of usable space.
