This is a rare opportunity to acquire a city residence in the historical area of Galway known as The Claddagh, overlooking South Park and enjoying views of Galway Bay and the north Clare coastline. The property currently comprises a two storey semidetached house on a large 600sq m site with detached garage and large gardens front and rear.
The opportunity rests with the fact that there is a full grant of planning permission to develop the property into a spacious two storey architect designed home, with 310sq m (3,334sq ft ). The home has been designed with an inverted layout to take full advantage of the views across Galway Bay towards County Clare and Mutton Island lighthouse. The design of the open plan living quarters on the first floor incorporates a spacious kitchen, dining, and living area with plans for a feature three-sided solid fuel/gas stove. This open plan space leads to a large separate living room to the rear of the property, with a southwesterly aspect, incorporating another solid fuel/gas stove, vaulted ceiling with roof lights, and retractable doors to allow this room to be open to the rest of the open plan living area, which is ideal for entertaining. There are two outdoor balconies, one to the front and one rear of the first floor open plan living space. Planning reference Galway City Council 14/262.
The design of the ground floor of the proposed new home includes four bedrooms, all en suite, with a dressing room off the master bedroom. The ground floor layout also incorporates a home office and an additional living room with solid fuel stove that would make a great music room/library/cinema room, adjacent to the master bedroom. The home design also incorporates a lift.
The rear garden has been designed by a landscape architect to take advantage of the southwest aspect of the rear of the property. Potential purchasers can finish the property to their own liking, style, and standards. The full plans are available from the agent.
