Colleran auctioneers will hold its second last auction of the year next week when five very desirable city centre properties go under the hammer in The Victoria Hotel on Thursday October 16 at 3pm. This Saturday offers the last opportunity to attend the open viewings.
No 3 Ashe Road, Shantalla, is a fabulous three/four bedroom terraced house adjacent to UHG. This extended beautifully maintained home once again highlights the true potential of these houses. Such was the reaction when No 3 Ashe Road was placed on the market that the open viewings had to be extended by half an hour.
Accommodation includes a bright sitting room with feature cast iron fireplace, kitchen/dining room with sliding patio door, separate living room with solid fuel stove, utility, and downstairs toilet. On the first floor there is a spacious master bedroom with en suite and walk-in dressing area, two more double bedrooms, and a bathroom. The attic has been converted and is currently being used as a fourth bedroom. The front garden has been removed to provide ample off street parking and the back garden is beautifully paved and decked with a garden shed and block built workshop. AMV is €180,000. Open viewing takes place on Saturday from 1pm to 2pm.
If you are looking for a property where you could add value and your own personal stamp then St Anne’s, No 16 Newcastle Road, will certainly appeal to you. This 1930s house, while maintained in good order throughout, would benefit from some modernisation. It is full of original character and charm, with original floors, bay windows, fireplaces, high ceilings, and a grand entrance hall. Because of its size and location adjacent to the hospital and university, St Anne’s will equally appeal to investors or those looking to live in a very special city centre home with every convenience nearby.
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 also been used as a fourth bedroom and is adjacent to the ground floor toilet, shower, and wash hand basin. On the first floor there are three generous sized bedrooms with high ceilings and 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. AMV is €225,000. Open viewing takes place on Saturday from 11am to 12 noon.
With development still in mind, No 2 Atlantic Terrace, Salthill, is a must see. Just across the road from Salthill Promenade adjacent to the famous Lonergan’s Public House with breathtaking views of Galway Bay and the Clare hills, this would make an exceptional holiday home with award winning bars, restaurants, and Galway Bay on your doorstep. Because of the C1 zoning of this property it has very obvious commercial potential for any shrewd investor. Accommodation includes entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen, dining room (formerly a shop ), and on the first floor there are five bedrooms and a bathroom. AMV is €240,000. Open viewing takes place on Saturday from 2pm to 2.45pm.
If development is not your thing, the auction will also feature two properties in The Claddagh and Grattan Court, both in turnkey condition. No 15 Upper Fairhill, The Claddagh, is located in one of Galway's most sought after residential areas, popular with young professionals and those looking to retire to an established city centre community with all its conveniences. Where else are you going to find Galway Bay at the end of the street and Quay Street less than a five minute stroll? In fabulous condition throughout, this is a real gem with a lot of money having been spent in modernising it. Accommodation includes large sitting room with cast iron fireplace, dining room, and beautifully fitted kitchenette. On the first floor there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. One of the bedrooms is so large that some owners of similar houses have converted it into two bedrooms. AMV is €290,000. Open viewing takes place on Saturday from 12 noon to 1pm.
If you have a large family and No 15 is too small but you still want a city centre location with primary and secondary schools and NUIG within walking distance, then No 5 Grattan Court, Fr Griffin Road, may be just what you are looking for. This large, bright, four bedroom detached house is situated just off Fr Griffin Road in a small private development of detached homes which all front onto a large green area. This home has the additional advantage of a sun-filled west facing back garden which is not overlooked because of an additional large green area to the rear of the house. The spacious living accommodation includes large extended sitting room with feature marble fireplace, bright fitted kitchen, separate dining room, study/playroom, and downstairs bathroom. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, with master bedroom en suite, and a tiled bathroom. To the rear of the property there is a large chalet which currently offers separate independent living accommodation. AMV is €380,000. Open viewings take place on Saturday from 3pm to 4pm.
