No 3 College Gate.

No 3 College Gate.

Following the recent success of its September auctions, leading Galway property firm Property Partners Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard is to close its 2012 auction season tomorrow with another busy afternoon. With a view to keeping its exceptional success rate going, the company is bringing eight lots to the market and is offering the usual diverse range of properties, with something to suit all potential buyers.

According to director Fergal Leonard MIPAV his team’s continuing ability to handle all types of property sales and limiting the number of lots brought to each auction have certainly been factors when it comes to getting instructions. “In recent years we have auctioned such a huge mix and variety of properties that we are now widely recognised as experts in all types of auction properties,” he said. “This year alone we have auctioned everything from a one bedroom city centre apartment to a large farm, and are geared up to handle any property which may come to the market.

“As well offering each property for sale with very attractive guide prices, our vendors are aware that we have had excellent results in our latest series of auctions and have bought into the mantra that in order to sell at auction, properties must be priced keenly. Our recent results show this is the case and as long as a property offers good value then it will always sell.”

Commenting on the feedback in the run up to the auction, James Heaslip MIPAV said: “We have had keen interest in most of the lots with plenty of activity at our open viewings each Wednesday and Saturday so we expect to have a busy afternoon on Friday and a full house as per usual in the Imperial Hotel.”

The following properties will be offered in tomorrow’s auction.

No 196 Tirellan Heights

Part of a long established residential development, this well proportioned detached home is situated on a corner site with a south facing rear garden and a large side entrance. Comprising approximately 1,350sq ft of living space, this is a great family home in a top class location. In need of some modernisation, No 196 has four spacious bedrooms with two bathrooms, and an adjacent garage which could easily be converted should the new owners look to utilise the space.

The excellent aspect will mean that extending the house would be a real option and the extra large site ensures that there will always be a decent garden no matter what size extension is added. With a guide price of €190,000, this property represents excellent value and will surely interest those who are seeking an outstanding detached home close to the city centre. The final open viewing will be held this Wednesday from 12 noon to 1pm and Brendan O'Connor of DM O'Connor solicitors on Cross Street will handle the carriage of sale.

No 46 Fr Burke Road, The Claddagh

Always one of the most popular locations of the city, The Claddagh has retained a wonderful community spirit despite being one of the closest residential enclaves to the heart of the city. Just a two minute walk from the restaurants and nightlife of Quay Street, and a two minute walk from the vistas to be enjoyed from Salthill Promenade, this property really does have it all. This is a delightful mid terrace home that has been extended but still enjoys a cottage feel and would make a perfect home or investment at a very realistic AMV of €180,000.

This house is set back from the street with a small garden area that could easily be modified to provide off street parking and internally, although some remodelling work has been done, this house oozes potential. There is a spacious living area with cast iron fireplace which is complemented by the galley style kitchen and separate dining area. There are three spacious double bedrooms at first floor level. To the rear the split level garden has a southwest aspect to take full advantage of the afternoon and evening sun. According to the agent Alan Maxwell MSCSI, MRICS, this is a perfect opportunity to acquire a home at exceptional value. The final open viewing will take place this Wednesday from 3pm to 4pm and full details are available from the agents. Solicitors with carriage of sale are Pat Sheehan & Co solicitors, Augustine Court, St Augustine Street, Galway.

No 22 Hazelwood, Taylor’s Hill

Affordable homes on Taylor’s Hill are difficult to find and while many aspire to live in this premiere residential location in the city, demand always outstrips supply. This home at Hazelwood is one that ticks all the boxes with its proximity to schools, sports facilities, the city centre, and Salthill Promenade. Built approximately 15 years ago, this home offers spacious accommodation of c200sq m which is perfect for family living and has a larger garden that most neighbouring houses in the development. The room layout offers space and practicality with two living rooms, a large kitchen/diner, and utility area. The first floor has four double bedrooms with the master room en suite with a feature bay window. The final open viewing will take place this Wednesday from 1.30pm to 2.30pm or by prior appointment. Brian Gilmartin of Gilmartin & Co solicitors, Woodquay, Galway, will be handling the carriage of sale for this property. With an advised minimum value set at an attractive €385,000 the agents expect strong interest.

No 7 Henry Street

If you are looking for a property with loads of potential that is very keenly priced, look no further then this city centre gem. This three storey townhouse has letting potential in its present form, and is also zoned for city centre use in the Galway City Development Plan. Although requiring some modernisation, this is much more than just a townhouse and could be renovated as a family home over three floors. Alternatively, with complete redevelopment, a commercial use could be considered for this property. Alan Maxwell MSCSI, MRICS, who is looking after this sale, expects that it will appeal to the small to medium investor who is interested in a building project that would complement any investment portfolio. This location is easily accessible to the city centre, UHG, and NUIG, and therefore offers enormous scope. The final open viewing will take place on Wednesday from 12 noon to 1pm. Paschal Mullery of Mullery solicitors, Woodquay, is handling the carriage of sale.

No 56 Gleann Dara

A four bed semidetached house located just off the Bishop O’Donnell Road, this property is nestled in the heart of the estate and has been neglected in the recent past, but with a small investment this property will present the investor with a great return. All amenities are close by, with the Westside Shopping Centre down the road, with West City Centre Park which hosts an Aldi and a post office among its businesses, the Glen Oaks Hotel, and bus stop and bicycle lanes all within close proximity. The property has four bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, with fitted wardrobes in all bedrooms. The ground floor includes an entrance hall, guest toilet, sitting room, kitchen/dining room with fitted kitchen, and a utility room. This is for sale on the instructions of receiver John Coulston of RSM Farrell Grant Sparks and has a very competitive guide price of €70,000. This offers great value for either an investor or a first time buyer, has a west facing rear aspect, and is not overlooked at the rear. “This is being offered with a hugely attractive guide price and is sure to interest a large number of potential buyers,” said Fergal Leonard, who is handling this sale. “A small investment in the property will offer the buyer a great return, be they investor or owner occupier.”

The advised minimum value is €70,000 and the final open viewing will be held on Wednesday from 3pm to 4pm. The solicitor with carriage of sale is Deirdre Garvey, GJ Moloney & Company, Hambleden House, 19-26 Lower Pembroke Street, Dublin 2.

No 3 College Gate

A small scheme of apartments, College Gate, as its name suggests, is located at the entrance to NUIG and close to University Hospital Galway. Locations rarely get much better for the astute investor, as there will always be a demand from tenants to rent this type of property. The bus stop is outside the front door, and all amenities are within walking distances including shops, restaurants, and pubs in the immediate vicinity. This apartment is being sold fully furnished and comes with the added bonus of a designated car parking space. A ground floor apartment, the unit comprises two double bedrooms, a bathroom, and kitchen/sitting room. “Rarely do opportunities like this present themselves for the investor,” said selling agent Fergal Leonard. “With NUIG and UHG on the doorstep, this is an exceptional apartment and offers excellent rental yields with a potential of an eight per cent gross yield.”

With a very attractive AMV of €110,000, interest is expected to be strong in this prime city centre apartment. The final open viewing will be held on Wednesday from 1.30pm to 2.30pm and Brian Geraghty, Geraghty & Co, Rosemary Avenue, Eyre Square, Galway, will handle the carriage of sale.

No 29 Gort na Coiribe, Terryland

This ground floor two bed apartment was built by well known builders O’Malley Construction in the early 2000s, and was purpose built as a Section 50 tax driven development, which is now finished. All but one of the existing owners have agreed to continue to have the rent pooled, as was the case when the tax scheme was active. The on-site management company controls the full development and offers a first class service to the investor. The apartment is being sold with the tenants in place until the end of May 2013 and therefore it will be returning money the day the sale closes. The management company also offers a summer rental package which will further boost the return. However, if the new owner is more hands-on he/she may take control of the apartment and not take up the pooled rent option which is on offer. The apartment comprises a kitchen/sitting/dining room, bathroom, and two bedrooms. The bedrooms are fully fitted with desks and built-in wardrobes, timber flooring, and the kitchen area is fully tiled, offering easy maintenance. Fergal Leonard is the estate agent handling this sale. “This is an exceptional well maintained development and this unit offers excellent value for the investor, as it will have a constant flow of tenants, due to its proximity to Galway city centre and NUIG,” he said.

The property is guiding an attractive advised minimum value of €110,000. The solicitor with carriage of sale for the property is Brian Doherty, Brian Doherty & Company, Saville House, New Dock Street, Galway.

Oughterard site

Located right in the centre of Oughterard, this site is situated at the entrance to a well established private development and is zoned for residential use which is in line with the existing houses in the estate. This site offers excellent value and will appeal to those seeking an investment opportunity in the much sought after location of Oughterard. Until recently the site had planning permission for the construction of eight apartments in two blocks, and while this type of development is an option the site could also appeal to anyone wanting to build a large house, subject to planning permission. It is close to all amenities the town has to offer including schools, supermarkets, restaurants, and a host of recreational facilities, and Galway city is just half an hour away. Being offered to the market for a hugely attractive AMV of €50,000, Barry Gavin of WB Gavin & Co, 4 Devon Place, The Crescent, Galway, is the solicitor with carriage of sale.

The auctions will take place tomorrow, Friday November 16, at 3pm in the auction rooms of the Imperial Hotel in Eyre Square.
