A FOUR-BED PROPERTY, Grey Gate Lodge looks as if it has come straight out of a glossy interiors magazine.

Located in Foxford, Co Mayo, the detached house is newly designed and completed. It comes to the market in walk-in condition, with every corner paid attention to, from the careful choices of wallpaper and tiles to custom finishes.

Also included in the sale are six acres of grounds, where there are organic vegetable and wildflower gardens, and a one acre bog plot.  

Measuring 2,088 sq ft, the interior is elegant and modern, but also unique and inviting. The living areas are bright and spacious, and include a large home office that’s sure to be appreciated by those who are working from home. Chevron-style flooring features throughout most of the ground floor.

For days when it’s possible to host dinner parties in a non-socially distant manner, there’s a separate dining room with space to seat at least six. 

One of the four bedrooms is on the ground floor, with an en suite bathroom and walk-in shower here. An eye-catching feature, all of the interior doors are solid wood sliding barn doors.

On the first floor, the master bedroom is a sight to behold. It comes complete with a standalone bath in an alcove at the end of the bed, plus a separate en suite bathroom and a custom-made walk-in closet.

The remaining two bedrooms on this floor each benefit from an en suite bathroom, while all three enjoy views of the garden and surrounding countryside.
