Clooniffe, Moycullen - once part of the Galway to Clifden railway.

One of the most famous passengers of the old Galway Clifden railway line during its short history from 1894 to 1922 was King Edward VIII.

He travelled on the train from Recess to Galway after staying in Recess in 1903, and en route he would have passed through the back garden of this beautiful house in Clooniffe, Moycullen.

New to the market for sale with Colleran Auctioneers, this attractive quality home is already generating considerable interest. Set in a tranquil rural setting, it is less than 5km from Moycullen village and 10km for Galway city centre.

The abundance of bright spacious accommodation consists of five bedrooms, two of which are en suite, with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor, and three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.

Each room throughout this house is tastefully decorated from its impressive entrance hall with high ceilings, cosy sitting room with feature Bangor slate fireplace.

The kitchen is the heart of any home and this one will certainly not disappoint with a generous range of built-in units, including a centre island.

The dining area offers views of the front and back landscape gardens and has French doors opening out on to the back garden.

To the rear of the property there is a large garage currently being used as a gym, but it could also be adapted for independent living or a home office.

All this accommodation sits on a mature landscaped half acre site with its own vegetable patch. At a guide price of €525,000 it is exceptional value with the abundance of quality accommodation on offer in such close proximity to the city centre.
