Crowds flock to St Anne’s
The team at Colleran auctioneers knew they had something special when they offered No 16 Newcastle Road for sale by auction, but the huge interest certainly exceeded their expectations with more than 50 people viewing the house on the first day of open viewing. Although in need of some modernisation, everyone was immediately taken by the character and potential St Anne’s offers, with its original terrazzo floor, its beautiful high ceilings with original 1930s plaster centrepiece, and its well proportioned, bright, living space. Built in the 1930s on an elevated site, this end of terrace three/four bedroom home has the added benefit of a side entrance into a small backyard.
Accommodation includes a bright entrance hall, beautiful bright sitting room with a bay window offering views of Galway Cathedral, a dining room with an original fireplace, a kitchenette, and a study which has been used as a fourth bedroom and is adjacent to the ground floor toilet with shower and wash hand basin. On the first floor there are three generous size bedrooms with high ceilings, including one with its original cast iron fireplace. There is a separate bathroom also on this floor. To the rear of the property there is an extension which can be used as bedrooms or a separate self contained flat.
If you are looking for a city centre house full of charm and character, or a gilt edge investment, then St Anne’s will tick all the boxes with all necessary amenities nearby. Investors will not beat this for location as it is adjacent to the hospital and NUIG.
St Anne’s will be offered for sale by public auction on October 10 with an AMV of €180,000.
Open viewings are on each Saturday from 1pm to 2pm or by appointment by contacting Colleran auctioneers on 091 562293.
