A choice of four large detached homes currently on the market in Mayo.
The Swallows, Ballina
€425k Sherry FitzGerald Feeney West, (096) 72828
About halfway between Ballina and Enniscrone, on the Quay Road, The Swallows has extensive views of the River Moy estuary. Measuring just under 3,500 sq ft, it has five bedrooms, three of them en-suite. There's also a living room with a stove, a rather formal drawing room/dining room giving onto the patio, and a study. The work of the kitchen is aided by a pantry, utility room and laundry. And there's a sauna too. There are lovely river views from the gardens, which consist of lawns scattered with mature trees a shrubs.
Glebe, Ballina Road, Crossmolina
€330k Fox & Gallagher, (096) 70900
Crossmolina is divided in two by the River Deel, which meanders through the town in a northerly direction before abruptly turning right and emptying itself into nearby Lough Conn. Glebe, an extended two-storey house on the outskirts of the town, stands on three-quarters of an acre by the riverbank, and is surrounded by trees so it can hardly be seen from the road. It has four bedrooms, two of them en-suite, plus a sitting room, lounge, play room, kitchen/dining room and sunroom. Total floor area is 2,900 sq ft.
Corrimbla North, Ballina
€330k CK Properties, (096) 70878
Although it's a roomy enough 2,600 sq ft, this detached home, about three-and-a-half kilometres from Ballina, has lower than expected running costs: it has a B3 energy rating, solar panels, and its own well. It's been expensively fitted out, with reception rooms arranged around a tiled entrance hall with an open-string staircase leading to a gallery landing above. There's a sitting room, sunroom, dining room and kitchen, plus five bedrooms, four of them en-suite. It's on about 0.9 of an acre with a detached garage.
Corclough East, Belmullet
€275k Fox and Gallagher, (096) 70900
There are uninterrupted sea views from this 15-year-old dormer bungalow just outside Belmullet, and it has a workshop on the grounds where you can keep up with the maintenance of your boat. It has six bedrooms (five en-suite) and two main reception rooms - a sitting room and a living room with a fireplace, sea views and a stained-glass door leading to a conservatory which gives onto the garden. The kitchen/dining room is about 280 sq ft and has a brick fireplace and bay window, and a utility room.
