Gallop over to Westport
You can lead a horse to water, especially if you're the owner of this four-bedroom house overlooking Clew Bay's multitude of islands in Co Mayo.
The architect-designed house at Ardkeen, Westport, is on an elevated site of five acres. The grounds lead down to a private slipway, for water enthusiasts, and there are five looseboxes and a sand arena for horsey types.
The house is approached via a 300-metre avenue and sheltered behind electric gates and has 1,449 square feet of floor space. There are three reception rooms as well as a sizeable (28 feet by 17) kitchen/dining room.
The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe; bedroom two is also en-suite; and the third and fourth bedrooms share a bathroom.
It is on the market for €690,000 through Tuohy O'Toole Auctioneers (098 28000).
