The award winning residential sales team in DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard have recently been appointed the selling agents for one of the most impressive family homes to come to the open market in the Salthill/Knocknacarra area in recent times. The team have just launched No 16 Carragh Close, Carragh Hill, to the market and are very excited about the prospects for this truly wonderful property.
Completed in 2001 and comprising approximately 2,000sq ft of living space, this most impressive architect designed residence is one of two similar style homes in a long established residential development on the western outskirts of the city. Set just off the Knocknacarra road, Carragh Hill is just a few minutes away from all amenities including Joyce's Shopping Centre, The Clybaun Hotel, Dunne's Stores, and B&Q. Galway Golf Club is just around the corner, as is Salthill with it numerous restaurants, bars, cafes and, of course, the Promenade.
Located on the highest point of Carragh Hill, the property was designed to take in as much of its stunning surrounds as possible, while all the time ensuring that light flows throughout the house, from front to the rear.
Set in a quiet cul-de-sac, this split level home is being brought to the market in pristine condition. The house is finished to a very high standard and from the minute you enter through the front door, it is evident that a lot of thought was put into its design.
To ensure the house takes advantage of the west facing rear aspect, the living areas are over two floors, with the bedrooms over a further two floors. There is an open plan kitchen/living/dining area on the below-ground floor level, with double doors to a wonderful raised deck area, which is perfect for those summer evenings and al fresco dining. The space is ideal for letting the children run wild, and the garden area below the deck offers a secure playing area away from it all.
At first floor level, there is a large reception hall, with an en suite guest room. On the second floor there is a hugely impressive formal living room, with spectacular views over Rusheen Bay. Regardless of the weather, the vistas are always impressive and a terraced balcony ensures that those summer sunsets can be fully enjoyed.
At the next level, the master en suite bedroom is huge and its vaulted ceiling makes it feel even more spacious. The top two bedrooms have wonderful views and all the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes.
The use of neutral pastel colours, along with extensive tiling and solid hardwood floors, means that the house will never be dated. The different levels flow seamlessly into each other, and the clever use of light shafts and glass brick windows ensures that light is ever-present.
The property is being sold with myriad extras including twin terraces, hardwood floors, a fully integrated kitchen with granite worktops and all appliances.
Selling agent James Heaslip believes that this is one of the finest properties on the market at present. “There is absolutely no doubt, this house is one of the best designed houses you will find in a residential development, west of the city centre," he said. "The finishing is quality, with the best of everything in place. The new owners will literally just have to turn the key and begin living. But it’s the aspect that has impressed most so far and we have already had a really positive response since going to the market."
He added: “The area is sought after, with most of the houses in Carragh Hill being owner-occupied family homes. As far as detached homes go in the Knockacarra/Salthill area, this is the best of what is on the open market at present and I doubt it will stay on the market too long.”
No 16 Carragh Close is being brought to the market with an AMV of €525,000. For full particulars and viewing details contact James Heaslip on 091 565261.
