Located in the Village of Kinlough, Country of Letrim this charming new home overlooks Donegal Bay and is surrounded by two streams, foxglove and sheep.  The exterior is all reclaimed stone from old cottages and sheds.  This home is nearing completion and has been a labor of love for it’s owner, an Arizona native, who bought the property while on vacation 5 years ago.

Our Mission Four-Rod Pendants light the kitchen with 30 ft. ceilings and our Buffalo Grove Four-Light Fixture illuminates the dining room.  The light fixtures are custom wired for the UK.

More photos and full story to come when home is complete.
