Property Partners Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard is expecting a large crowd for the first of two autumn auctions, which takes place tomorrow in the Imperial Hotel in Eyre Square at 3pm. Seven lots will go under the hammer at the event.
“As usual, we always try to offer a mix of properties in our auctions to appeal to a wide variety of buyers and we are very excited with the diversity in lots we are bringing to market tomorrow,” said auctioneer James Heaslip MIPAV.
The first lot offers a rare opportunity to purchase a property in Taylor’s Hill. According to Alan Maxwell MSCSI, MRICS, properties of this calibre rarely come to market and as such, Denam House is likely to attract a lot of interest, particularly given its very desirable location. Denam House has been in the same ownership since being built in the 1950s and has been maintained as a beautiful family home. The area has much changed since those early days but this home has retained a rare privacy, through the cultivation of a magnificent rear garden, which in its time hosted a full size tennis court. The house is a very generous 2,200sq ft and accommodates a central hallway leading to a family room that runs the full length of the house, and a dining room with a feature bay window to the front. Both rooms have open fires and the family room has a double door to the rear garden area. The kitchen and scullery overlook the rear garden, with an integral garage that would be ideal to convert. The first floor has five bedrooms, the master bedroom having a bay window, double wardrobe, and built-in vanity unit. There is also a separate bathroom and wc room. Although requiring some modernisation this property has huge potential to provide an amazing family home on a site of just over a quarter of an acre. With space to the rear and side Denam House has all the requisites to become one of the stand out homes of this area while retaining its unique charm. The solicitor with carriage of sale is Yvonne Francis of Emerson & Conway, St Francis Street, Galway. The AMV is €400,000.
Ard Na Mara was one of the first residential areas to be developed in Salthill and is one that has stood the test of time as a first class family location. With many of the original occupants still in situ the recent trend has seen a resurgence in interest from young families, and is once again seeing the local green areas filling up with young children playing. No 26 Ard na Mara is in a cul de sac and has a lovely south facing rear garden which until recently was lovingly tended as a garden and vegetable plot. Internally the house has spacious accommodation including a traditional family room with open fire and a separate dining room with open fire. The kitchen and pantry runs the length of the rear of the property and can be remodelled to a more modern design. The site orientation allowed for the construction of a garage and workshop which could form a plan for the renovation of this property. At first floor there are four bedrooms, all with wash hand basins. This floor also has a separate wc and a bathroom. “There are several recent sales in this area by Property Partners Maxwell Heaslip and Leonard and the expectation again is that there will be very high interest in this property which is being offered at a very modest AMV,” said Alan Maxwell. “Its proximity to Scoil Íde and Scoil Éinde, Salthill Promenade, and a host of other amenities will also appeal.” This home will require modernisation, which will enable new owners to put their own stamp on things and explore the possibilities of incorporating the garage and workshop into the home. Solicitor with carriage of sale is Susan McLoughlin of Berwick solicitors, Woodquay, Galway. The AMV for this property is €220,000.
The third property is located in Woodmount, Ballinderreen, a quality estate of 30 detached homes, all within walking distance of Ballinderreen, a small village with shop, petrol station, pub, and church, while picturesque Kinvara is only 5km further south. Galway city is only 20km away with both Oranmore and Clarinbridge on the Galway route. This estate was constructed in the last 10 years and is complete with all groundworks finished.

There are double doors to the kitchen/dining room that is fully tiled. The kitchen contains fully fitted oak units, with an island, and the dining area has a sliding door to the west facing rear garden. The utility is located off the kitchen and includes a generous number of fitted kitchen units, plumbed for washing machine, includes a sink, and a door to the rear garden. Just off the entrance hall is a guest toilet, fully tiled, and a room that can be used as a fifth bedroom, office, study, or playroom.

Lot number four is No 11 Commerce Court, located in the heart of Galway city just off Quay Street and adjacent to the renowned Druid Lane Theatre. The development is a mixed commercial and residential scheme completed under the regeneration of the city centre scheme which has proved a resounding success. Access is by a gated entrance from Flood Street leading to a central courtyard surrounded by a limited development of townhouse properties. Number 11 is a three storey property which is a very spacious 900sq ft and encompasses a central hallway, separate kitchen and living room, three double bedrooms, and bathroom. The scheme has been very well maintained and is a sought after letting location in the city due mainly to its central location and generous specifications. Expectations are that this property will be sought after by those seeking a property with a guaranteed return on their investment, and with an attractive AMV of €120,000 there is much to catch the eye of prospective buyers. The property has been let until just recently at an annual return of €12,000, which represents a very good yield for this location.

Built in the 1970s, the house has approximately 1,850sq ft of living space, including the basement area, and is situated on a mature site comprising almost 1.3 acres. “The gardens are spectacular to say the least and although the existing property is well proportioned, there is plenty of scope should the next owners wish to extend,” said James Heaslip. “This prime owner occupied residence offers a real opportunity to acquire a outstanding family residence, in a location second to none, with unrivalled views.” The AMV is an attractive €200,000 and Clodagh Gallagher of RG Emerson & Co solicitors, Cross Street, Galway, will handle the carriage of sale.

On a corner site, the house is, at present, completed to wall plate level with some of the windows in place. “While a lot has been completed to get it to this stage, there is still considerable work left before it is habitable,” said James Heaslip. “I would expect that this will appeal to anyone who wants build their own home and live in a quiet well established residential development.” The AMV is a modest €35,000 and the solicitor with carriage of sale is Shane Sweeney, McCann Fitzgerald solicitors, St John Rogerson’s Quay, Dublin 2.
