Two properties to come to the market in the past week are certain to attract the numerous first time buyers who are currently seeking to get their feet on the proverbial property ladder in Galway. While these properties could not be more different, they will certainly cover two ends of the spectrum in this part of the market.
The first property, a four bedroom semidetached residence, No 70 Carrigeen, is being offered for sale by private treaty. Built in the mid-nineties, this spacious home is in excellent condition and is being sold with the benefit of an extra room to the side of the house, which can be used as a playroom/office, offering a total square footage of almost 1,500sq ft. There is extensive tiling throughout with all fixtures and fittings, including carpets, curtains, and blinds, included in the sale.
At first floor level there are four bedrooms, with the master bedroom having an en suite, and a fully tiled bathroom. The rear of the house is south facing and gets sun all day, with a patio area to take advantage of the summer evenings. There is oil fired central heating, double glazing, and private off street parking. All amenities are within walking distance including Joyce's supermarket, and the Clybaun Hotel is directly across the road. With a hugely attractive AMV of €205,000 interest is sure to be strong, and viewing is a must for those looking for a wonderful starter home in a great location.
The second property is a detached bungalow situated just outside the popular residential location of Lackagh village on the Galway-Roscommon road. Constructed in the early eighties, the house is on a well appointed site comprising c0.5 acre with a generous rear south facing garden and a mature front lawn. There is a tarmac driveway leading to a rear yard with ample parking and a large garage of almost 450sq ft. The house has 1,350sq ft of living space, is both bright and spacious, and is in good condition throughout with all mod cons including oil fired central heating and woodgrain PVC double glazed windows.
The site layout lends itself to further expansion should the next owners wish, but as a first time buyer home it will already tick a lot of boxes. Lackagh village is just a stroll away and has all amenities including a supermarket and a primary school. The appealing guide price of €145,000 will surely entice those seeking a quality family home in a much sought after location.
