This picture-perfect, period cottage has been meticulously restored into a highly desirable modern home, oozing with both elegance and charm and in turn-key condition.
Set in Mayo's own lake country where Loughs Corrib and Mask attract anglers in their droves, The Neale is just a five-minute drive from the renowned tourist destination of Cong village - home to Ashford Castle - and a short commute from Galway City, making it a dream address.
The village is steeped in history and, with its cut stone faé§ade and thatched roof, The Thatch is an integral part of The Neale's unique built heritage which dates right back to prehistoric times.
This property boasts a floor area of 614 sq ft and accommodates an open plan kitchen/living area, two bedrooms, a shower room and a beautiful loft space, making it an irresistible prospect for a first-time buyer, someone in the market for a holiday home or anyone thinking of down-sizing.
Located on the R334 between the lively town of Ballinrobe and the pretty village of Cross, The Neale enjoys a highly strategic location boasting the best of country living while being within easy commute of the region's key towns and attractions.
Mayo's county town of Castlebar is just a 30-minute drive away and you can be at Ireland West Airport Knock in three quarters of an hour.
Head due south from The Thatch for 40 minutes and you will be in the regional capital of Galway.
Incredible thought has been put into the refurbishment of this home to incorporate the very best of period and modern features.
A charming entrance porch leads straight into the heart of the property - a wonderful light-filled living area where a modern, fitted kitchen forms an imaginative contrast with a statement inglenook fireplace featuring wonderful stonework.
High ceilings and pristine white paintwork add to the property's modern, airy feel while a mezzanine area presents exciting space maximising opportunities.
The rest of the ground floor is comprised of two bedrooms and a modern bathroom featuring electric shower.
A cute narrow staircase leads to the first floor and a beautiful timber-floored loft room, adjoined by spacious attic storage boasting further development opportunities.
Slate-style floor tiles, sash windows, adorable window seats and exposed wooden ceiling beams all honour the wonderful heritage of this truly unique building, which is set on a generous site that incorporates a pretty garden and parking and overlooks The Neale's landmark Fr O'Malley Fairgreen.
