Legatirriff House is for sale!

10th April 2019
This house has a contemporary extension, designed by our director, Aisling Rusk. The oak-framed extension was designed as a link between the old cottage and its garden, creating a sunroom for year-round use, and adding a new entrance and utility area.  Inspired by Scandinavian timber architecture and traditional Irish vernacular forms, age-old oak frame construction was used, in a vernacular form that compliments the oak cottage, yet is markedly contemporary with expansive glazing.  A roof of cedar shingles blends in with the adjacent thatch.  The wood-burning stove makes the room cosy even in winter, when the roaring fire reflects off the windows in every direction.  This is a room for contemplation, for enjoying Ireland’s ever-changing weather and shifting seasons, and for gatherings and celebrations big and small.  The utility room is hidden within a discreet wooden enclosure – large doors open to create an enclosed room, or close it away within a wooden box, allowing views through and around to Lough Neigh beyond.  The landscaping by Sweeney Landscape Design brings the wilderness of the great outdoors right into the space in playful and compelling ways. In spring and summer, a sea of wildflowers can be watched dancing away around the rock-shored pond.
