Generally speaking in property terms, there are people who love to be in the thick of things, and who would shudder at the thought of boreens, green fields, and the proximity of large animals. At the other end of the spectrum there are those whose idea of heaven is a sweeping vista of verdant pasture, preferably with mountains and lakes in the distance and the buzzing of bees being the only sound to disturb the perfect peace.
Long sunny summer days are inclined to give a push to people thinking of embracing the idyll, and for those out there thinking along these lines Property Partners Maxwell & Heaslip has an enticing new listing to tick all of those boxes.
Located in townland of Ballinduff, just 11 miles from Galway city centre and 200 metres off the main Galway-Headford road is a pretty two storey dormer style house standing on charming mature gardens of c0.5 acre and with a wonderful outlook over nearby Lough Corrib.
In immaculate condition, the house has a warm and welcoming ambience, offers a perfect oasis for comfortable family living with space and light in abundance. Situated at the end of a cul-de-sac, the house is not isolated with half a dozen neighbouring properties close, but not too close. A sweeping gravelled drive in front of the house offers more than ample parking for cars, boats, and horse boxes.
Internally the house has a comfortable rustic feel, heightened by widespread use of natural pine finishes. The wide entrance hall opens onto the living room with a cast iron open fireplace and an attractive shallow bay window. Off this is the large and well fitted kitchen/living room with a warm quarry tiled floor and an L-shaped dining room opening onto a paved patio area and a well tended back garden with lawns and shrubberies. A good size breakfast counter allows for informal eating and breaks up the living space from the kitchen. The adjacent utility room is well fitted with additional storage and plumbed for white goods.
The generous wc also has a fully tiled shower stall. Also at ground floor level is a guest bedroom with an en suite shower room. Upstairs are three double bedrooms and a large tiled family bathroom with a separate shower unit. An additional winning feature is the extra large walk-in linen room with extensive shelving.
Outside there is an extra large garden store and tucked under the trees is a full size timber play house complete with red roof and flowering window boxes — every little girl’s dream home!
