This cottage style residence is situate in the townland of Ballymacragh just off the Westport road out of Castlebar, about 3 km from the town centre. A most accessible and desirable location. Westport is just 14 km west of this and the two towns will soon be linked by a dual carriageway which will reduce the travel time dramatically. Once in operation the new N5 will remove a huge volume of traffic from this area ensuring a true rural vibe, albeit walking distance from the town centre.
The cottage residence dates back probably to the 1930s and has a pitched slated roof, knap plaster finish and mainly uPVC double glazed windows. It is accessed by a right-of-way over a private laneway from the current N5 which is shared with only one other party, namely the neighbouring farmer.
The cottage comprises living room, kitchen dining area, 4 bedrooms and a shower room. The kitchen, one bedroom and shower room are housed within a flat roof extension which was constructed sometime in the 1970s.
To the rear of the dwelling there is small yard and some traditional out offices provide good storage or an opportunity to create a workshop.
