Westlife star puts house on market for €1m

The luxury home of Westlife star Shane Filan has gone on the market in Co Sligo for just under €1 million.

The five bed detached house at Castledale, Carraroe is up for sale with estate agents Sherry FitzGerald Draper for €990,000.

Castledale is a magnificent contemporary mansion home with impressive accommodation and almost five acres of fully landscaped extensive private grounds.

It has been designed and completed to exacting standards and a marvellous natural stone external finish.

Inside, well proportioned rooms have been arranged to combine optimum accommodation and fine living. A foyer entrance hall of generous proportions provides accent to all the areas of the house.

The impressive kitchen, dining and living areas are complimented by a large utility, games room and a conservatory. Two separate stairways lead to the first floor bedroom accommodation, which include five bedrooms and five bathrooms.

The entire second floor comprises a bar and entertainment lounge together with a sun room area, cinema room and a small office.

Outside, electronically controlled gates open onto extensive landscaped grounds which incorporate a small lake, well-placed patio and terrace areas as well an area developed for golf enthusiasts.

There has been extensive planting of shrubs and trees and the entire lands are bounded by tall mature hedging and walls, making it most private. A large detached garage block also adjoins the house and complete with a centrally heated three bay garage, itself with full floor tiling, large gym facility and spacious studio space.

Filan has placed the home up for sale after falling into financial difficulties, which forced him to file for bankruptcy in the UK last year.
