In the shadow of Croagh Patrick
Cedar Park, Westport, Co Mayo
Cedar Park, an architecturally-designed development under the shadow of Croagh Patrick in Westport, is well named: the front of the homes are partially clad in cedar wood.
Cedar Lane, the third phase of the scheme, has now been launched, with a showhouse opening for viewing. The latest 11-unit tranche follows previous phases called Cedar Court and Cedar Place. A fourth and final phase of 13 three and four-bed detached houses called Cedar Drive is also on the cards.
The entire scheme was planned as a family-friendly environment and is built around a large green space with a children's play area, all of which have views of the surrounding countryside.
Prices at Cedar Lane start at €285,000 for the three-bed detached units, while the four-bed version costs €330,000.
Both have a brick-paved driveway and footpath, as well as a pocket lawn to front, with a seeded and fenced lawn to the rear.
Inside, timber and tiled floors come as standard.
Buyers will receive an allowance worth €1,000 to fit a stove on the cream marble base in the living room and will also have the option - for an additional sum - to convert the attic at a later stage.
The properties have oak-coloured fitted kitchens that feature soft-close doors and drawers, and come with integrated appliances.
The bathrooms are fully fitted and tiled, and the homes' internal doors are made from solid oak.
The houses at Cedar Lane have an A3 energy building rating, ensuring low day-to-day running costs.
Triple-glazed windows and solar panels with indoor control panels contribute to the high energy efficiency rating.
The development is located just a short stroll from Westport town centre and is close to a range of amenities, including the Great Western Greenway, the walking and cycling trail that runs from Westport to Achill Island, making it the largest of its kind in the country.
Westport, voted in 2012 as the best place to live in Ireland, is 17 km away from Castlebar, 78 km from Galway and 267 km from Dublin. Ireland West Knock International Airport is a 45-minute journey by car.
