A BEAUTIFULLY LOCATED 4/5 BEDROOM DETACHED BUNGALOW, SET ON A SITE OF 1.09 ACRES, WITH STUNNING VIEWS OVER THE SHANNAUNNAFEOLA AND KNOCKNAGUSSY MOUNTAINS AND WITHIN A MILE OF MAAM VILLAGE.
The property is situated approximately 1 mile from Maam Village, which is well known, for Keane's Bar which overlooks a small harbour at the top end of Lough Corrib. This historic building was built for Alexander Nimmo and was described by Samuel Lewis thus: 'At the head of Lough Corrib, which is navigable to the neighbourhood of Galway, is the Corrib Hotel, situated at Maam, among the mountains, at the foot of Noneen More, at the entrance to Joyce's country and the Killeries, and commanding a beautiful view of the picturesque scenery in this very romantic district.' Despite the passing of nearly two centuries since these words were written, they still apply to the scenery which surrounds both the village of Maam and this property.
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. 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, derives its name from An Lionan which is loosely translated as the tidal area, standing on the shores of Killary Harbour. Leenane 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 and pubs.
The area abounds with wildlife, some of it rare, and is the home of one of Ireland's most elusive mammals, the tree dwelling pine martin, as well as deer, otter, hare, rabbit, badger, stoat, and all manner of birds. A virtual nature lover's delight. Given its rural location and fine surroundings this lovely home would make an ideal holiday home with its own land surrounding the property giving good privacy.
The property was constructed in the 1990's of block construction with a rendered exterior, under a concrete tile roof and benefits from double glazed windows and doors throughout, oil fired central heating. The property extends to circa 2,000 square feet internally. The property suffered water damage ( a split tank in the loft) in the beginning of 2023 and has been completely re-decorated throughout with new doors and architraves and now comes to the market providing the opportunity to personalise the property with the flooring throughout.
