Number 16 Frenchville, The Claddagh, is an executor sale and comes to the market with an attractive price tag that is open to offers.
The houses at Frenchville are ex-servicemen’s houses, unique in design and oozing with character. They were built at the turn of the last century and are as popular now as ever and are being purchased by people who long for a family home that is within walking distance of the Prom and the city centre. If you look along the line of houses at Frenchville it is incredible what has been done in terms of upgrading and redesigning these inimitable homes. As with all houses in Frenchville, Number 16 is full of character and although it has been extended to the rear it still retains many of its original characteristics.
This unique property enjoys large gardens to the front and rear and has a detached garage to the side with access along a long driveway to the side of the house. As well as extending to the rear its present owners built on a very attractive sun porch to the front to avail of its south facing aspect and take full advantage of the sun. Grattan Road is regarded as one of Galway’s oldest and most established residential areas. Overlooking South Park and enjoying the most wonderful views of Galway Bay and the Clare Hills beyond, this property is a real gem.
Although in need of some modernisation — you only have to look around the area to fully appreciate what can be done with these super homes — it has all going for it; site, size, and location, what more do you need? With the advice of a good architect who has a feel for the area there are no boundaries.
