DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard is offering to the market, by way of online auction, a two-storey detached residence in the townland of Shannafreaghoge, Furbo. Built in the early 1900s, this charming farmhouse comprises almost 1,200sq ft of living space and, although in need of considerable renovation to be brought up to modern living standards, it offers huge potential with gorgeous views of the Clare hills and the surrounding countryside.
Set on a site of c0.35 acre, the property is being sold with the benefit of a large shed which, if converted, would make an ideal home office or guest accommodation. The grounds around the main house offer space for further expansion and this should appeal to those who are seeking to put their own stamp on what has the potential to be a stunning family home.
Selling agent James Heaslip said: “In the right hands, this could be something special. It is located at the top of the road, away from the passing traffic, and has wonderful views. With the workplace dynamic changing to suit those working from home, the outbuildings would be ideal for conversion to a home office and you would still have enough space for a home gym. It is an executor sale, so we have priced it keenly and I believe it represents great value.”
Just 25 minutes from Galway city, the property is also just 10 minutes from both Barna and Spiddal, with all amenities close to hand. James Heaslip added: “Taking into account the lack of sites available in the Barna/Furbo area, buying and renovating a property like this will certainly appeal to those owner occupiers and first time buyers who can tackle the work themselves. Having an existing two storey house already in place is a massive plus for anyone who wants to build their dream home.”
The property will be offered for auction on September 30 with a guide price of €140,000. Viewings can be arranged by contacting the auction team at DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard at 091 565261.
