Sherry FitzGerald welcomes to the market Thalassa, a substantial property overlooking Salthill Promenade which is being offered for sale by private treaty.
In Greek mythology Thalassa was the goddess of the sea, and considering this property’s location it was aptly named. Thalassa is a handsome two storey detached home built circa 1978 and stands on a large plot of approximately 0.24 acre. Since the time of its construction, and to this day, it is one of only a handful of residences built that directly overlooks the Promenade and Galway Bay in Salthill.
The gardens are mature and private; boundaries are well defined with hedgerows and walls. Vehicular access is from the rear via electronic gates, with pedestrian access to the front. Features of the gardens include paved patio area, stone water feature, lawns, and mature shrub beds. There is a detached double garage with potential for conversion or further development and/or connection to the main residence. In all the site extends to approximately 0.1 hectare (0.24 acre ).
The house was designed and built to take maximum advantage of the natural amenities it overlooks. All rooms are large and well proportioned, many with dual aspect, and most enjoy stunning views over and onto Galway Bay. Features include hardwood staircase, antique marble fireplaces brought from the original Seamount House, high ceilings with ornate coving and centrepieces, and a Stanley stove in the kitchen. There is a sitting room, living room, conservatory, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, and utility room on the ground floor.
On the first floor are five large bedrooms, two of which are en suite, and main bathroom. The master bedroom has a dual aspect taking full advantage of the magnificent views.
Thalassa has remained in the ownership of the current family since it was first built and in its time served as a happy family home. Properties that directly overlook the Promenade and Galway Bay very rarely come to the open market in Salthill and as a result this is a rare opportunity for potential buyer to acquire such a prime property.
Gardens and grounds
The property stands on a large site of mature gardens with well established shrubs, trees, hedgerows, and lawns to the side and rear. There is a pedestrian entrance to the front and vehicular access from the rear through electric gates onto a tarmacadam parking area for four or five vehicles. There is also a large double garage to the rear of the residence with storage and with easy access to the house.
The gardens are in lawn with a stone water feature, paths, mature trees, shrubs, and hedgerows. The gardens complement the scale of the residence and again take advantage of the southern aspect looking onto Galway Bay.
Viewing can be arranged by appointment with Tony Kavanagh, Sherry FitzGerald, 4 Eyre Square, Galway, 091 569123/086 8108355 or at www.sherryfitz.ie
