An imposing four-bedroom, three-bathroom detached family home in Co. Mayo, you’ll find this property on a large mature site between Ballyhaunis and Knock.

Originally built in 2000, the property comes to market in turnkey condition. Block built and clad in stone, the exterior was sourced from an old manor house. The current owners acquired the property in 2016 when they made further improvements with the aim of creating a luxury country house hotel. 

The house is set back from the road on an elevated site extending to approximately 0.6 acres. A further 1.5 acres of wild meadow can be found to the rear of the house with the potential to landscape, or use as a space on which to build a garage or home office for those still working from home.

Surrounded by newly fitted composite gates and mature hedging, the property has plenty of privacy from passing traffic. A tarmacadam driveway winds up to the front of the property, offering ample off-road parking.

Boasting beautiful views of the nearby turlough to the west of the house, as well as the Nephin Mountains in the distance, inside, the accommodation comprises an entrance hall, library, reading room/conservatory, four bedrooms, dining room, kitchen, utility room, pantry and three bathrooms.

A generous entrance hall greets you upon entry inside, with wooden stairs leading upstairs. Standout features include a double-height ceiling and terracotta tiles warmed by underfloor heating. To the left, is the library with solid timber heated floors, bespoke shelving and a solid fuel open fire with antique salvaged fireplace and granite hearth. Double doors open out to the reading room/conservatory.

This room has been fitted with custom window seats (with storage) to make the most of the views. There is a feature stone wall on one side and a wooden railway sleeper lintel hanging over the doorway. Facing west, the room enjoys both afternoon and evening sunshine.

The dining room is situated on a raised platform just off the hall. Double doors connect this room with the rear garden. Further inside is the kitchen with the same heated terracotta tile floor. Bespoke timber units have been fitted here, artisan-built with timber salvaged from an old convent with appliances including an integrated dishwasher, oven/hob/grill, and fridge/freezer. There is also a solid fuel stove, and a bay window with fitted window seat in the living area.

The utility room has space to accommodate a washing machine and tumble dryer while further shelving can be found in the pantry.

The master suite is a bright room to the front of the house. Fitted with solid timber flooring, it also has its own walk-in wardrobe and ensuite.

Outside, large lawns can be found both in front of and behind the house.

Conveniently located in the townland of Greenwood, the property is just 4km west of Ballyhaunis, 7km from Knock and 22km from Ireland West Airport Knock. In terms of transport, there are daily train links to Dublin city with the N5 and N17 network also nearby. 

Currently on the market for €475,000, the property is on sale through Sherry FitzGerald Hanley. Viewing is recommended, however, you can take a closer look inside this impressive Mayo home in our gallery below.
