An island location, a traditional cottage, over 19-acres of land and commonage grazing rights are among the key features of Sherry FitzGerald Crowley’s newest listing in Co Mayo.
The selling agent, Andrew Crowley, is seeking €300,000 for the property in Bunnamohaun, Clare Island, Westport.
The two-bedroom traditional cottage offers what the selling agent described as a “rare opportunity to purchase in this exceptional island location”.
The property comes to the market with approximately 7.818 ha/19.32-acres of land and commonage grazing rights.
According to the selling agent, the cottage needs refurbishment but offers “wonderful” potential for an idyllic retreat. The floor area measures approximately 45.1 sq m/485 sq ft.
Accommodation consists of a living room, a kitchenette, two bedrooms and a shower room.
The kitchenette and shower room are in a small extension to the original cottage’s rear.
To the side of the cottage is an adjoining outbuilding measuring 20.52 sq m/221 sq ft, which offers potential for conversion, the agent added.
“The land is of fair quality, suitable for sheep grazing. It runs from the coast in front of the cottage to hillside above it.”
Furthermore, the commonage grazing rights comprise 11 undivided 726 parts of 457.12 ha/1,129.6 acres and 11 undivided 688 parts of 341.33 ha/843.4 acres.
