This stunning Edwardian home is oozing with character and comes with a two bedroom annexed coach house. St Anne’s offers a wonderful mix of comfort and elegance and can only be appreciated by viewing. Accessed by a tree lined avenue, the property offers an abundance of indoor and outdoor space in tranquil surroundings. Tucked away in a corner that is unknown to many, St Anne’s offers the lucky purchaser the privacy and peace that is so much part of these superb period homes.
This is an increasingly rare opportunity to acquire a substantial south facing Edwardian property standing on its own grounds surrounded by mature trees, with many unique features and an excellent range of accommodation. This magnificent property was built in 1910 and throughout the past number of years has been lovingly restored by its present owners. History tells us that at one point it was the retirement home of the late Bishop of Galway, Dr Browne, and during the Pope’s visit to Galway in 1979 he was entertained by Dr Browne in St Anne’s.
Like many other grand homes St Anne’s still manages to retain its original style and elegance, with a lot of the interior still awe inspiring. The main reception rooms are bright and well-proportioned and are located in the front section of the house, which is a fine example of early Edwardian architecture.
The single glazed windows in the house are original sash windows that have been recently refurbished. Most other windows in the house are double glazed.
The annex coach house is modern and extends to approx 700sq ft. The coach house can be accessed from the main house and also from the enclosed courtyard. This is a real gem as self contained guest accommodation. Alternatively, because it has direct access to the main house, it could easily be incorporated and used as part of the main accommodation.
Ground floor accommodation in the main house comprises reception area, entrance hall, lobby and walk-in linen closet/cloakroom, drawing room, sitting room, dining room, breakfast room, kitchen, utility room, and guest wc. The first floor houses a large landing, three double bedrooms including master bedroom and walk-in wardrobe/dressing area, and all bedrooms are en suite. There is a double bedroom en suite with walk-in wardrobe on the second floor.
The coach house accommodation comprises a hallway from the courtyard, and living/ dining room/kitchen on the ground floor, and two double bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor.
St Anne’s enjoys several closed private garden areas of various designs, and the house is within walking distance of all amenities in the area. The main house extends to approximately 2,800sq ft.
St Anne’s is a rare gem that is hidden away from the public view and stands superior to most other properties in the neighbourhood. The likes of it will not come to the market too often.
