This newly refurbished Westport thatched cottage is on the market for €279,000, and it’s picture perfect

Located in county Mayo, this two-bed, two-bath thatched cottage offers a countryside retreat, with all the modern comforts.

If you’ve always had dreams of starting a home in the surrounds of a traditional thatched cottage in the West of Ireland countryside, this Killawalla property will set your heart racing.

The charming cottage has been recently renovated and extended to an excellent standard, sympathetically refurbished both internally and externally, including the renewal of the thatch roof.

Traces of the original cottage decor can be seen throughout the home in the painted pine clad vaulted ceilings, traditional style rough plasterwork, and feature stone fireplace.

The floor area extends to approximately 103.7 sq m/1,116 square foot, and comprises a living room, two bedrooms (one en-suite), a shower room, and a large mezzanine room with infinite potential.

Towards the rear, there’s a modern extension, which holds the bright and spacious kitchen, dining and sitting room. On-site, there also sits a mini-cottage, which could be refurbished into a home office or studio rental unit, and there’s also an additional outbuilding to the side.

The garden is well sized and has been attractively landscaped with lawn areas, raised stone-fronted flowerbeds, gravel paths and parking areas.

The location of Killawalla, Westport, Co Mayo, offers a peaceful countryside retreat, with views of sloping green fields, mountains and lakes visible from the property.

Just a 10 minute drive from Westport, and 15 minutes from Castlebar, this Killawalla cottage is close to all the village’s amenities, including schools, shops, pubs, and a community centre.

Click through our gallery for the full tour of this quaint thatched cottage, which is on sale for €279,000 through Sherry FitzGerald Westport, with Andrew Crowley handling negotiations.
