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 beginning of the last century and are as popular now as always 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, a very attractive sun porch to the front has been built by its present owners 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.
No 16 is within a stone’s throw of the Claddagh Basin, Spanish Arch, Claddagh Church, Salthill, and all local amenities. This is probably one of the best locations in the city. On the market at the moment with a reduced price tag of €500,000, this has to be value for money for a house in this wonderful location. Houses on this strip have been transformed into large family homes while still retaining their extensive stretch of rear gardens. This is an opportunity not to be missed.
