Creagh House, Ballinrobe, County Mayo.

>For Sale; Creagh House, Ballinrobe, County Mayo:

Period property for sale in Ballinrobe, County Mayo: Creagh House on about 2 acres.

Creagh House was built by Colonel Knox in 1875 when the footprint of the house extended over one third of an acre!

Sadly diminished in size in the 1930s by fire, there still remains today a sizeable period house of around 6,000 square feet, in beautiful and secluded surroundings, habitable, and indeed inhabited, but needing further restoration.

The property occupies grounds of just under 2 acres, looking toward Lough Mask. The grounds are partially wooded with lawned areas around the house.

The front of the house has magnificent views over the Tourmakeady mountains and from some aspects, to the lake.

The house comprises 4 large reception rooms on the ground floor, 1 smaller room and a large kitchen and utility room.

On the first floor are 5 bedrooms and a bathroom, and the second floor has 3 further bedrooms and another bathroom.

In addition the tower has it’s own access, a further 5 rooms on 3 floors, with a door opening on to a roof balcony, and ladder access to the tower roof,

where there are views over several counties on a clear day.

The tower is in need of renovation, as are some of the rooms in the main house.

The potential of this beautiful building cannot be overemphasised.

At present a family house, suggested alternative uses could be:  bed and breakfast or hotel accommodation, as an artisanal centre,

as an alternative health and healing centre, as a basis for holiday courses, or divided into apartments, subject to the necessary planning consents.

It s position lends itself to holiday and recreational purposes.
