A horseshoe driveway leads to this delightful five bedroom family home in Stradbally East, less than 2km from Clarinbridge, a village renowned for its culinary delights and world-famous oysters.
The house was built in 1997 on over half an acre and offers versatile accommodation — five bedrooms, the master with en suite bathroom, along with the sitting room, kitchen and dining room, main bathroom, shower room, and playroom/home office. A separate garage and a fuel/garden shed double as a workshop and storage facility.
In 2017 the property was completely refurbished and the now light filled interior, with its contemporary décor and warm hues, will immediately lift the mood and awaken the senses.
To the left of the spacious entrance hall, the well-proportioned living room connects seamlessly to the modern, streamlined, U-shaped, triple aspect kitchen which features high gloss kitchen units and integrated Neff appliances, a wonderful space for cooking and family entertaining. Two of the five bedrooms, in addition to the playroom and family bathroom, complete the ground floor accommodation, and custom built under-stair storage units and baby changing station make the best use of an otherwise wasted space. Upstairs a light filled landing leads to three bedrooms, a second bathroom, and a shelved linen press which fits comfortably in the eaves of the house.
The mature garden is beautifully landscaped and has a number of apples trees, a plum tree, strawberry and blackberry beds, a vegetable plot, and mature trees which add interest and provide privacy to the occupants. A raised patio with sandstone paving and feature lighting is a wonderful space for outdoor entertaining and relaxation.
The heating is oil fired central heating with an outdoor housed boiler unit, and there is a solid fuel stove in the sitting room. There is a septic tank in the rear garden, and water is via mains water supply.
Galway city, with its lively art scene, is less than half an hour away, Limerick city and Shannon Airport are less than one hour, while Dublin’s M50 is within two hours. There is a choice of schools in the nearby Educate Together, Clarinbridge, or Killeeneen national school, with secondary schools in Kinvara, Gort, and Oranmore, and there are activities to suit all age groups from Burren walking tours to golf, sailing, and yoga retreats. Tracht Beach and the picturesque village of Kinvara, famed for traditional music and the red sails of the Galway hookers, are within easy reach.
This family home has a warmth and charm that will impress the most discerning buyers and viewing is very highly recommended.
