Danby House, a seven-bedroom period residence comes to the market with all the features of a gentlemen’s residence. Located on the outskirts of Ballyshannon town, this house, which dates from the early 1800s is centrally positioned on 18 acres of woodland and parkland, has various courtyards with stable blocks, a two-bedroom gate lodge and approximately one acre of walled gardens. The present owner has carried out substantial refurbishment works with the property now in pristine condition, with an abundance of stunning architectural features both internally and externally. Danby House is set in an outstanding location on the edge of town yet in a rural setting with all the west-facing windows having expansive sea views. This two-storey house, with both basement and attic rooms, features seven reception / dining / sunrooms, two kitchens and seven bedrooms (five of which are en-suite).

Offering great potential as a boutique hotel, restaurant or private residence. This impressive property can only be fully appreciated through viewing.
