This two-bedroom cottage dating from the early 1900s lies on landscaped gardens a short drive from Westport town. Having been upgraded with new windows and doors in 2021, the property, which measures 82sq m, has an office on the first floor that could make a second living space. As it is on 0.4 of an acre, there is room to extend, subject to planning permission.
