DNG Maxwell, Heaslip & Leonard presents to the market this most impressive semidetached property on the Newcastle Road in Galway city. Located just minutes from the city centre, this outstanding two storey residence has recently been completely renovated and is without doubt one of the finest city homes to come to the Galway market in recent years.
Originally built in the 1950s, the property has been through a number of makeovers throughout the years, with the interior layout chopping and changing on a pretty regular basis. However, its most recent owners have gone above and beyond in order to create a truly masterfully designed home, and have shown us that a little bit of thought and a good eye for detail, can make all the difference.
From the moment you arrive in front of the property, you instantly see the direction the current occupiers were going with their plan. You are met with a secure coded pedestrian gate, which is low key, but gives you comfort that the house is secure. The granite paved front garden is low maintenance, and the sleek grey lines blend seamlessly with the neutral plaster finish.
Stepping over the threshold into the wonderful hall area and the open plan living/dining room, you are instantly drawn to the brushed black metal glass frame and the beautiful blond oak effect Karndean engineered parquet flooring. As you continue through the living area your attention will switch to the floor-to-ceiling green panel walls, with an integrated log effect gas fire with a cream internal lining, and the custom made paladin radiators on opposing walls.
Under the stairs, there are hidden storage units and to the right you enter the stunning galley designer kitchen with a large picture frame window allowing the light to pour through. The white quartz countertops, green under counter units, and the adjacent floor-to-ceiling white cabinets work wonderfully. A ceramic base hob with a raised gas cooker with a matching extractor are state of the art. There’s a Quooker hot tap, an integrated dishwasher, eye level oven, and an integrated fridge freezer and a larder unit. The white frosted backsplash and the white flecked marble floors are stylish but practical, which is a theme with this property.
Staying at ground floor level, the double doors to the rear garden bring you out to a grey raised paved patio area, which step down to a composite deck area with a grey slated wood wall offering privacy, making it perfect for al fresco dining. A recent addition is the Pod garden shed with a wood panel façade – ideal as storage space (its current usage ) or a home office.
At first floor level the high ceilings help bring more light and there are two double bedrooms, with the main bedroom having a panelled wall and recessed built-in wardrobes. The third bedroom has been turned into a fantastic walk-in-wardrobe with floor-to-ceiling oak effect units. The bathroom is a work of art with a stand-alone deep pan bathtub and a corner shower unit with a glass frame and black brushed metal shower fittings, matching the wall mounted heated towel rail. The wonderfully designed Karndean tiled floor brings the room to life – which isn’t something that can be said too often about a bathroom.
Selling agent James Heaslip said: “Having recently overseen the sales of several high-profile properties in this area, I can honestly say that this is simply the most impressive property to come to the market in Newcastle in years. It's like stepping into the pages of a magazine - what they have done to open the ground floor space and let the light in, is truly remarkable. The attention to detail is evident throughout. The stylish fixtures and fittings, neutral soft furnishings, with the high ceilings, all help to bring this property to another level. To carry out the renovations in today’s market would cost a pretty penny so it’s a savvy buyer who purchases this home, as the hard work is all done.
“We are very excited to have been chosen as the sales agents and we’ve already had many inquiries," he added. "This house is an ideal buy for those looking for style and space in a wonderful setting. The hospital is on your doorstep, the grounds of the university are just up the road, and the city centre is a five minute walk from your front door – a quality home in a quality location.”
No 48 Newcastle Road is being offered to the market with a price of €550,000. Viewings are by appointment only and can be arranged by contacting the residential sales team at DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard at 091 565261.
