Probably one of the highest properties in the Maam Valley, this partially constructed property offers a rare opportunity to create a wonderful home in one of the most sought after areas of Connemara. The property is North facing and will have accommodation comprising entrance hall, split level open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen, and a double bedroom ( ensuite). On the first floor, 2 double bedrooms and a separate bathroom. Surrounded by its own grounds extending to circa 2 acres, the property offers great privacy and views.

The property is situated in an elevated position over looking the Maam Valley and Keane's Bar, which is a hostelry of some note and which overlooks a small harbour at the top end of Lough Corrib.

The property is ideally placed for fishing, boating or walking the mountains around the Maam valley, which is one of the most favoured walking areas in Connemara. The property is situated on one of the approach roads to Mamean, the pass over the mountains between Recess and the Maam valley. There are many other local amenities in Maam which include a shop, schools, a church and a football sports field.

Leenane, which is situated at the lower end of the Maam valley, is situated on the shores of Killary Harbour and is a most delightful village, being a popular stopping off point on the main road between Clifden and Westport and with a number of shops, pubs and the renowned Portfinn Lodge.

The property is of concrete block construction under an attractive curved tile effect steel profile roof and extends to 166 sq. m or 1787 sq. ft. There is double glazing throughout and the property is watertight and dry. The property could easily be finished to the original specification, with the walls and roof built, a solid ground floor and a suspended timber floor above.
