It not difficult to see why Ballybane/Old Mervue has become so popular with first time buyers and investors, as this mature residential area still remains affordable despite its convenience to the city centre and its proximity to shopping centres and some of Galway’s largest employers.
Colleran's next auction on March 28 will include No 97 Monivea Park, Ballybane, Galway. This three bedroom semidetached home has the added attraction of being situated in a quiet cul de sac and facing a large green area. Accommodation includes an entrance hall, sitting room, and kitchen/dining room. On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. The front garden is lawned and offers off street parking for at least two cars. There is a very wide side entrance with a car port offering the potential to extend, subject to planning. The back garden has a large block built garage/workshop. Advised minimum value is €195,000. Open viewing takes place each Saturday from 1pm to 1.30pm.
