As life begins to return to normal and demand for houses continues to escalate, great houses in great locations are hard to find. It is therefore with pleasure we bring to market this special property offering a lifestyle that combines a sense of openness and unrivalled beauty with proximity to employment opportunities and social outlets.
Situated in the townland of Houndswood near the village of Cross in county Mayo this dormer bungalow combines charm with spacious accommodation. A vibrant front door welcomes you into a porch with light filtering from the front and side. Double doors then welcome you into the front hall which is a gracious space where light bounces off the mellow wood of the stairs. A solid French pine floor flows from the porch into the main hallway.
To the right of the hallway the sitting room stretches the width of the house and is designed to invite the eye to travel to the mountains and lake in the distance. The room has semi solid oak floors, an open fireplace, windows to the front and side and a sliding door offers access to the back garden. On the other side of the hallway there is a generous bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and the luxury of an ensuite with a bath.
The kitchen and utility are to the rear of the house. The kitchen / dining room has a tiled floor, a large complement of shaker units and can be accessed from the main hallway or the living room. The southwest facing window offers beautiful views from Mayo across Lough Corrib reaching as far as Oughterard on a clear day. A guest WC and a convenient cloakroom complete the ground floor.
Upstairs there are two spacious, light filled bedrooms with gentle sloping ceilings. Both rooms have windows to the front and a Velux window to the rear. Each room also has their own ensuite which are beautifully tiled and have a Velux window to the rear. A hot press completes the first-floor accommodation.
Externally there is a limestone wall to the front a with a good-sized front and rear gardens with some mature hedging. All it requires would be for someone with green fingers and a little imagination to create a beautiful gardeners paradise with stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
