A historic Castlebar house has been listed for sale by private treaty.
Hawthorn Lodge is a magnificent 18th century Georgian Manor having historic connections with the O ‘ Malley family (1798-1850) and also with the present owners who are all descendants of Maud Burke the great granddaughter of Granuaile the pirate Queen of Connacht.
Hawthorn Lodge is located off the golf links road which is c. 2 ½ miles from the town centre and fronts on to Castlebar’s Golf Course.
Having been successfully restored following a prolonged period of un-occupancy the current owners have painstakingly restored and refurbished the Manor to retain its old-world charm while providing all modern conveniences.
Hawthorn Lodge stands on c. 2 acres and extends to c. 4500 sq. ft over 3 floors. The entrance lobby is a feature of amazing character that still holds that sense of importance, which is accessed by a flight of 6 benchmark inscribed limestone steps.
The roof has been replaced in 1992 and windows were updated. There is so much history and character to this property that recognising the privilege of living there needs to be acknowledged. Stepping into Hawthorn Lodge is like stepping back in time.
The history behind these 2 storeys over Basement Manor is so inviting, you are drawn in as if it belongs to you. The house does have a wonderful sense of charm and character that you would expect from a property of this era.
