From the outside this may look like a reasonably modest detached bungalow - albeit one with lovely views of Croagh Patrick and the Clew Bay coastline in the distance. Inside, though, it's a surprise, and with bright, double-height rooms and modern fixtures it clearly shows the hand of an architect. It's bigger than it looks too, at 2,110 sq ft, and it has three bedrooms on the ground floor, one en-suite and the other two sharing a bathroom. Elsewhere, the ground floor has a big, open-plan kitchen, living room and dining room with a vaulted ceiling and central fireplace. That leaves almost the whole first floor for the master bedroom, where there's an en-suite and a balcony.
The Boulevard, South Mall
€895k Sherry FitzGerald Crowley, (098) 29009
The Boulevard was built in the early 19th century on Westport's South Mall, which along with North Mall forms one of the prettiest streetscapes in the town, flanking the Carrowbeg River. It traded as Kelly's Hotel for many years and more recently as The Boulevard guesthouse, having been refurbished by the current owners in 2000. It measures some 2,753 sq ft with five en-suite bedrooms in the main house and another in a self-contained apartment. The main house also has two reception rooms and a huge kitchen on the ground floor, and a first-floor atrium overlooking a central courtyard.
Stone Lodge, Altamount Street
€299k Sherry FitzGerald Crowley, (098) 29009
What you get with this detached property in the centre of Westport is ostensibly a three-bedroom street-fronting house in need of refurbishment. What goes with it, however, is a fairly enchanting 1,037 sq ft stone building behind the main house, with an arched entrance, original roof beams, a loft and a cellar, as the property used to be a bar. The main house is 839 sq ft with three bedrooms and one main living room, and attached to the back of it is an annexe measuring 285 sq ft with a living room and one bedroom, and its own entrance.
€320k Tuohy O’Toole, (098) 28000
About six kilometres from Westport, and in a pastoral setting off the Castlebar Road, stands this detached dormer bungalow built about 15 years ago. Sizewise it's 1,899 sq ft, with four bedrooms. All are on the first floor and the main bedroom is en-suite. The main living room on the ground floor is an open-plan triple-aspect kitchen and dining room, with double doors opening into a wood-floored sunroom. There's also a dual-aspect living room on this floor with a fireplace in timber and cast iron. There are lawned gardens around the house and a sandstone patio in the south-facing back garden.
