ON FIRST LOOK, this large 725 m² house in the Mayo countryside could be one of the many historic homes that are dotted throughout Ireland. Castlemacgarrett Park Old, however, was only built between 1997 and 1999. The exterior, though, is a 200-year-old stone.

A six-bed luxury home with the finishes inside and out to prove it, it’s nestled just outside Claremorris town in the heart of Co Mayo. Castlemacgarrett Park Old is an elegantly designed house that’s energy efficient and ready to walk into. It’s now on the market for €1,250,000.

The heart of the home is the large kitchen that’s complete with an Aga cooker and French doors that lead to the paved courtyard. Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility room and ground floor bathroom that offer extra convenience. And its B1 BER is proof that the current owners have prioritised sustainability and cost-saving utility bills.
