The auction team in DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard have been instructed to bring No 211 Tirellen Heights to the open market and will be carrying out open viewings this Saturday from 12.30pm to 1.30pm. An executor sale, this detached bungalow residence is one for those seeking a “doer-upper” and offers huge potential as a spacious owner-occupied home, or an investment property close to the university.
Located just off the Headford Road, the house is one of a limited number of detached bungalows in the area and is in need of total refurbishment. On a well-proportioned site, the house comprises almost 1,200sq ft of living space, with four bedrooms, a spacious living room, an open plan kitchen/dining area, and a bathroom. There is an adjacent garage, which would be ideal for conversion, with further expansion a likelihood, taking into account the good sized gardens around the house.
Being offered to the market with its own separate entrance off the main road, the house will require some upgrading, but does include oil fired central heating, and has double glazed windows. There is ample parking to the front of the property and front and rear gardens with great potential.
Within walking distance of Terryland Retail Park including Dunne's Stores, the nearby Dyke Road offers easy access to the grounds of NUIG, and all road access routes to and from the city centre are readily accessible.
Selling agent James Heaslip reckons this is real gem, which offers great potential. “We are constantly on the lookout for properties like this," he said. "It's well located, close to all amenities, and just minutes from the city centre. Tirellan Heights houses have always been in demand, and a detached house like this will attract those who want their own space, yet still have access to Galway city. Whoever buys it will put their own stamp on it, but it won't take a huge amount to have it perfect.
“Being in close proximity to the campus of NUIG and yet offering an easy commute to all the business centres on the eastern outskirts of the city, it will certainly interest workers who aren’t interested in the daily grind that Galway traffic can sometimes cause.”
Open viewings take place on Saturday and Wednesday from 12.30pm to 1.30pm. DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard is offering No 211 Tirellan Heights to the market with an attractive guide price of €250,000. The auction will take place on Thursday May 9 in The Galmont Hotel.
