An “impressive” contemporary house with “exceptional” views in Liscarney, Westport, Co. Mayo is on the national property market with a price tag of €950,000.
Savills is handling the sale of Carramore House, which, it said, occupies an elevated position on the edge of Lough Moher with a magnificent outlook across the water and onto the dramatic mountain ranges.
“Constructed in 2004, the house was designed by award-winning, Architects McGann Scahill, creating a modern family home which is light-filled and takes full advantage of the stunning views, whilst at the same time, offering spacious family living areas suitable for entertaining and also incorporating an office and design studio, ideal for home-working.”
The accommodation is laid out over two storeys. Extending to approximately 5,812 sq ft, a key feature of the house exterior is the Arctic Pine double-glazed windows benefitting from the exceptional uninterrupted mountain and countryside views.
The detail and finishes are notable internally with features including the American Walnut floors, Jerusalem limestone tiling in the hallways and Italian tiling in the bathrooms and kitchen, the property firm added.
An impressive entrance hallway is one of the focal points of the house with a wall of glass overlooking a spacious south-facing courtyard which is perfect for summer entertaining.
In addition to adding natural light, it provides easy access to the main reception rooms which include a formal dining and drawing room located to the west of the house.
“An open plan upgraded kitchen/dining and living room are perfect for modern family living and is located to the east of the house, capturing the splendid views over the lough.”
The south wing of the house comprises an office and studio together with a guest bedroom and en-suite bathroom.
This wing includes a separate entrance, which, the selling agent suggested, could easily be used as a spacious self-contained apartment for running a business from home, a teenager's den or for an elderly relative.
The bedroom accommodation is principally laid out over the lower floor and includes four bedrooms (two en suite).
The master bedroom suite is an “impressive and well-proportioned” room with access to a patio area that captures the views of the Lough Moher.
It includes a dressing room with an extensive range of fitted and built-in cupboards and wardrobes. The master suite also includes a bathroom with a feature bath with Corian surround and power shower.
Carramore House is approached via a private, shared road which leads to a gated entrance.
A private driveway leads to the front and side of the house where there is ample parking.
The house sits on wonderful mature grounds of about 20-acres, with well-tended lawn areas adjacent to the property.
The area between the house and lough is primarily amenity land and includes native trees that blend into the landscape.
To the side of the house is an attractive, tranquil courtyard which is perfect for relaxing or entertaining in private, according to the selling agent.
The property benefits from about 417 metres of water frontage onto Lough Moher offering the buyer ease of access to the lough to take advantage of a range of activities.
The natural walkway down to the lough is very special and will be enjoyed by the new owner for many years.
