This traditional thatched cottage in in Co Mayo is on sale for €179,000

With surprisingly spacious interiors and modern touches yet plenty of its original character, it would make a unique home.

A two-bedroom stone cottage situated three kilometres from Ballindine village, Beech Tree Cottage is perfect for those who love traditional charm.

You enter the home into the living space, which has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, whitewashed stone walls and a traditional stone hearth with a stove.

A door leads through to the kitchen and dining room. This space has a slate-effect tiled floor and two walls of units, giving plenty of storage and worktop space. The space is bright thanks to several windows, and French doors that lead out to the garden.

There are two bedrooms in this home. The main bedroom is well sized and has an open fireplace with an ornate metal surround. The second bedroom, although smaller, has a vaulted ceiling that makes it feel more spacious. There is also a family bathroom.

Outside, the home sits on a 0.4 acre plot, which is partly wooded, offering privacy and tranquillity. There is an old stone outbuilding which has the potential to be restored, while a large garden to the side of the house is set up to grow vegetables.

Just under an hour’s drive to Galway city, the house is also less than 50 kilometres from Westport and the coast, with plenty of villages nearby for local amenities.
