No 1 Gaoth na Mara.

A stunning, architecturally unique home, perched on the water’s edge in picturesque Furbo, with 180-degree views of Galway Bay, taking in the Aran Islands and across the bay to Aughinish Island to the hills of Clare, along the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way, has just come to the market through DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard, Galway.

This property offers any prospective purchaser an excellent opportunity to acquire a home in a quiet scenic area surrounded by beautifully maintained, landscaped gardens and magnificent south facing sea views. It is located just 14km from Galway city and just a short stroll of the famous Padraicin's Restaurant, a host of sandy beaches and many local amenities in the popular Furbo village.

This exceptional home, which is of unique and distinctive architectural design, extends to circa 321sq m of living space. This special six bedroom detached home wows from the start with a statement entrance foyer featuring marble floor tiling, sleek glass balustrades and oak stairs leading to the upper level and three oak steps bringing you to the formal living room. This stunning room is complete with an expanse of floor-to-ceiling glazing designed to frame the glorious vista and a bespoke e-Matrix double sided electric fireplace and feature lighting, ideal for appreciating the wonder of the Atlantic Ocean on a stormy winter’s night.

Agent Fergal Leonard said: “Sitting on circa 1.8 acres of landscaped gardens, with tarmacadam driveway and garanite patio, this home is one of the finest to come to the market in Galway in recent times. It is sure to attract much interest, given the level of quality given to the finish of the property, along with its location and access to the famous waters of Galway Bay.”

The entrance foyer leads into the light filled, open plan kitchen/dining/living space which also enjoys uninterrupted views across the bay to the Aran Islands and beyond. The impeccably finished space features a bespoke Cucina designed kitchen, with beautiful Corian and oak worktops and breakfast bar, integrated appliances including a warming drawer, drinks fridge, hob with external extraction fan and a Quooker tap. The kitchen also includes an air conditioning unit and there is a large utility room located off the kitchen with access to the garden.

The lounge features a custom designed media unit including an ambient coal effect electric fire. There is access from this area to the magnificent multilevel patio and outdoor dining area, with glass balustrades and finished with limestone paving.

At the ground floor level, there is a bedroom which also enjoys an incredible vista, which is currently used as a home office, and a sumptuous bathroom, complete with an oval-shaped free-standing bath, a statement bathroom suite befitting this spectacular home. A set of oak finish stairs leads you from the foyer up to the upper level off of which there is a very special and private first floor patio which houses the Wellis Mars hot-tub, perfectly positioned to soak up the view. This level also includes a versatile room, which could be used as a gym/exercise space/yoga studio or a guest bedroom.

This A2 energy rated home is truly future proofed with an Ecoden air to water heating system. There is underfloor heating throughout and, in addition this high-tech home includes a KB Star surround sound system and a camera Hikvision security system.

Oak finish stairs lead from the ground floor level to the lower level where there are two further bright and generous bedrooms, both enjoying a spectacular vista. The larger bedroom suite at this level features an elegantly finished walk-in wardrobe and sumptuously finished en suite bathroom.

There are a further two bedroom suites at the first floor level, mirroring those at the lower level and similar in design and finish with elegant walk-in wardrobes and lavish en suite bathrooms.

Located at the end of a private cul-de-sac development of only four architecturally unique new homes, No 1 Gaoth na Mara is perfectly positioned at the water’s edge, providing privacy and unrivalled tranquillity. Set behind electronic security gates and providing ample parking plus a detached garage, the grounds are extensive and beautifully maintained. Rolling lawns merge with cleverly rewilded areas creating a haven for local wildlife and sea birds. The famous Padraicin's Restaurant and a host of sandy beaches are a short stroll from this residence along with all Furbo's amenities on the doorstep, including Furbo National School, the Connamara Coast Hotel and the local shop.

The home’s position, just a short drive from Galway city, is ideal for buyers seeking that perfect home, close enough to the hustle and bustle of a thriving and culturally vibrant city, while also retaining the charm and warmth of a local Gaeltacht village community at Furbo.
