Following the recent announcements about the companies new merger, Galway’s most progressive property firm Property Partners Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard is pleased to announce its upcoming winter auction. The latest offerings to go under the hammer are a diverse range of lots which will appeal to all sectors of the market and will be what auctioneer James Heaslip MIPAV promises to be an engaging event: “All the properties which we are promoting offer a mix, which will appeal to a range of buyers from across the spectrum. The one thing that the properties have in common is that they are very attractively priced. We have advised our vendors that if they want to sell in this turbulent market then the property must be priced keenly. Our recent results show this is the case and as long as a property offers good value, then, it will sell.”
22 Frenchville, Claddagh
Situated in one of the city’s most sought after areas, this delightful property is located on the edge of the promenade and has a wonderful aspect facing south towards Galway Bay. In need of modernisation, this ex-serviceman’s house offers huge potential for extension and expansion with large front and rear gardens. This, according to the agent Alan Maxwell MIAVI, is “a gem which offers untold possibilities”. The property is in its original layout with a large hall leading to three ground floor rooms consisting of a living area, large kitchen/diner and a bedroom. Two rooms boast open fireplaces, which could be used to great effect in any renovation.
At first floor level, two double rooms command majestic views over Galway Bay, the Promenade, and the Clare Hills. From a simple renovation of the existing property to a large scale extension, this Frenchville property would benefit greatly from the expertise of an architectural consultant to maximise its potential.
The property is being offered to the market with an attractive AMV of €280,000. Open viewings will be held every Saturday from 1.30pm to 2.30pm, while private viewings can be arranged through the sole selling agents office. William Sandys of Sandys & Brophy Solicitors, 6 Sea Road, Galway, will handle the carriage of sale.
Comprising a large residential property with ground floor commercial space situated on a large site of c 0.6 acre, this mixed usage property is ideal for anyone seeking to blend a home and work life without having to travel far from the family home. The property is divided into c2,000ft of first floor residential accommodation and a further c1,000ft of ground floor commercial space. In need of some modernisation, the house is both bright and spacious and offers plenty of potential as a well located, family residence. The commercial section had previously been split into three separate retail units and has potential in its existing form or as one large retail entity. Alan Maxwell MIAVI, who is handling this sale, remarks; “The Kilcolgan area has seen a lot of development over the past number of years and is well established as a commuter suburb for Galway city. This property is right in the middle of the village and offers a great opportunity to acquire a generous size site with a large house already in situe”.
The property holds an attractive AMV at €250,000.
The solicitor with carriage of sale is Dermot Kilfeather, c/o Kilfeather & Company Solr, The Halls, Quay Street, Galway.
