Published 02/04/2010 | 05:00
Doogort is a detached dormer bungalow on an elevated site on Achill Island overlooking the sea and the Co Mayo coastline.
It comes to the market with an asking price of €315,000.
Extending to 135sqm in size, the first level of Doogort consists of an entrance hall with a red-deal wooden floor, a built-in wood kitchen with velux window and a utility room with guest bathroom (shower included).
The dining and sitting rooms are connected by double doors. The sitting room has a cast iron and marble fireplace, while both rooms have clear views of the beach, Slievemore Mountain, and the Atlantic.
On this level there are also two timber-floored double bedrooms, and the main bathroom.
Upstairs, leading off a velux-windowed landing, are two more bedrooms: the master bedroom, which has a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite bathroom, and another bedroom, also with a walk-in closet and en suite.
Both of the bathrooms have velux windows for extra light.
Doogort also has a large detached garage.
The house is within walking distance of the seaside village of Doogort and for those on the lookout for a holiday home this makes for a convenient touring base for the rest of the west coast.
In addition, it would also make for a good family home seeing as a bridge connects Achill Island to mainland Mayo and all its resources, including schools.
Meanwhile, there is a local shop, bar and restaurant in Doogort, while two blue flag beaches are right on the doorstep.
Indeed, it's a good location for outdoor enthusiasts as the local attractions include angling, hill walking, surfing, boating, and even horseback riding.
