On Friday December 16 O’Donnellan & Joyce expects the Victoria Hotel to be bursting at the seams when it auctions 16 fantastic properties. Locations are varied and each property is priced to sell. As is common practice now, in most cases the reserve prices will not exceed the advised minimum value price and in some cases it could even be lower. Locations include Claregalway, Carnmore, Menlo, Woodquay, Glasán (GMIT ), Bushypark, Rahoon, the city centre, Salthill, The Claddagh, and Kingston. This is being billed as a ‘spoiled for choice’ auction and there is such a variety of properties in a variety of locations that there is something for everyone.
No 5 Knocknacarra Road, Salthill
Accessed by a series of steps that lead to a balcony over the garage, No 5 Knocknacarra Road is a charming split-level three bedroom bungalow. The property overlooks a large mature green area which affords all properties each side of the road considerable space and privacy. This lovely home is presented in very good condition. Like many properties of its age the house would benefit from some modernisation, however ‘as is’ is also quite acceptable. Accommodation includes three double bedrooms, two to the front and one to the rear of the house, a large modern bathroom, a kitchen, utility, and a large living/dining room that runs from front to back allowing an abundance of natural light to flow from both directions. The rear garden is split level and is surrounded by mature hedging which offers the potential purchasers adequate privacy.
Property in this superb location has never been on offer for such a low price. No 5 is located just moments from a host of local amenities including the Galway Golf Club, Salthill beach and promenade, and Joyce’s Supermarket and retail centre. The city centre is also only a short drive away. The total site size is 60 ft x 134ft which gives many options for extending, subject to planning permission.
Notable features include double glazed windows, semi solid floors, fitted kitchen, fully tiled bathroom, kitchen appliances, private garden to the rear, and a large garage.
Open viewing takes place every Thursday and Saturday from 3.30pm to 4.30pm.
Bungalow in Bushypark
Although in need of refurbishment and modernisation, this lovely three bed bungalow has the potential to be transformed into a fine family home. To the front of the house there is a good size garden with a large forecourt and space to park several cars. To the rear, the property is elevated and the garden is on two levels, with the upper level enjoying fantastic views of Lough Corrib and the surrounding countryside. The location, close to Bushypark church and within easy reach of a number of notable primary and post primary schools, has been much sought after for years. Bushypark has long been regarded as one of the most outstanding residential areas on the outskirts of Galway. A distinctive and very attractive area, it is within a five minute drive of Galway city and combines the convenience of location with a first class peaceful country setting and is located on the main road about six miles from Moycullen village.
The property has oil fired central heating, double glazing, and a large detached garage on which a new up and over door has just been fitted. Because of the size of the site it offers an abundance of space should the new owner wish to extend in either direction.
Notable features include double glazing, oil fired central heating, large garden/site to the rear, garden to the front with forecourt for off street parking, magnificent views of the River Corrib from the rear of the house, and its location.
Open viewing takes place every Thursday and Saturday from 11am to 12 noon. The solicitor with carriage of sale is Maureen Harwood, 13 Mill Street, Galway, (091 ) 561160.
