Set on a large site, No 11 Arbutus Avenue in Renmore is not your typical semidetached property as it comes with strong potential for an additional residence on the garden to the side, subject to planning.
Situated close to Galway city centre, the property is conveniently positioned in the popular Renmore area overlooking a green area. The location is well connected by bus services with local shops, sports clubs, and walking trails like the beautiful Ballyloughane Beach within walking distance.
Constructed in 1975, the property comprises a four/five bedroom semidetached residence with extensive gardens to the side and rear offering significant potential for the development of a separate dwelling. Approximately 1,541sq ft and in good condition, generous living accommodation includes a converted garage, large utility, and a partially developed attic space with a stunning view over Galway Bay. A bright entrance hall leads to two reception rooms, each with an open fireplace. The kitchen/dining opens through to the utility into the converted garage which was cleverly transformed into a downstairs bedroom with electric shower. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and main bathroom.
The side garden is large enough to accommodate a single detached dwelling while still leaving a large garden with the existing residence. There are strong prospects of getting planning permission for this, and Sherry FitzGerald has opinion from a respected and experienced engineer outlining same which is available for interested parties. If further development is not of interest then the extra large gardens offer huge amenity value.
A house of this size on such a generous plot is rare to find this close to the city centre and offers a number of potential opportunities either to extend to the side or build an additional single detached dwelling, or keep the large site as the wonderful garden it currently is.
Asking price is €415,000. The BER is E2, on BER cert number 111880365.
