SITTING on a 1.99 acre elevated site in rolling countryside, Greenwood, Ballyhaunis, Co Mayo, enjoys views of what can appear to be one of the most magical experiences of the Irish countryside — a turlough.
Turloughs are disappearing lakes which appear when the rains are heaviest in winter and spring each year but then they disappear when the water drains away in the summer.
Greenwood itself was built only four years ago and the 270 sqm house exudes warmth and comfort.
It accommodates six bedrooms, three of which are en suite and three are located at ground level. Also at ground level is a conservatory with access to the outside timber decking which affords extensive views of theturlough.
A sitting room comes complete with carpet, curtains and blinds, and an open fireplace with cast iron and timber surround.
A large open plan fitted kitchen provides ample space for dining, relaxing and watching TV.
As well as fitted units and appliances, its work space is supplemented by a well equipped utility room. An office is also located at this level.
Two of the three downstairs bedrooms are en suite and a family bathroom is also located at this level. The upstairs en suite bedroom also has extra storage space.
Heating is oil fired and energy costs are conserved by double glazed PVC windows.
Outside is a detached garage to the side and an extra field which couldaccommodate a couple of ponies.
Greenwood is just off the Knock road and is convenient to Bekan national school, church and shops.
It is three miles from Ballyhaunis and nine miles from Claremorris.
