Colleran’s next auction on March 27 will include two city centre properties and a luxury apartment in Salthill which are sure to be of considerable interest to all investors, first time buyers, or those looking for a pad with views of Galway Bay. Housing stock in the city centre has now reached alarmingly low levels both for those looking for investments or family homes, according to Don Colleran, so interest in these properties is sure to be very strong.
The homes going under the hammer include two attractively priced properties in Nuns Island and Shantalla Road, both in need of attention, giving you the opportunity to add real value with your own ideas and design. No 29 Nuns Island is a real city centre gem. Located in the city centre on the banks of the canal and the River Corrib, it will be of equal interest to investors and first time buyers who want all the conveniences of living in the city but do not want to live in a large apartment block. With an advised minimum value of only €110,000 immediate viewing is recommended. Open viewings start this Saturday, February 15, from 12 noon to 12.30pm.
If you are looking for space and more of a challenge then No 7 Shantalla Road may prove of interest to you. Located close to Cooke’s Corner, this detached house sits on an unusually large site for a city centre house with a large back garden offering room for development, subject to planning permission. In need of total renovation, this property currently consists of three bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, and bathroom. The advised minimum value is €85,000, and open viewings start on Saturday February 15 from 12.45pm to 1.15pm.
Both Nuns Island and Shantalla continue to be extremely popular and sought after locations due to their proximity to the university, hospital, and all the conveniences of the city centre.
If Nuns Island and Shantalla sound like too much work and you are looking for something very special in turnkey condition where you only have to put the kettle on and open the patio doors to smell the sea air, then No 168 Dun Na Carraige, Salthill, is the property for you. This luxury spacious two bedroom, first floor, apartment with its own front door is located in one of Galway’s most prestigious addresses adjacent to Galway Golf Club on an elevated site on the shores of Galway Bay. Finished to an extremely high standard throughout, viewing is a must to appreciate the many extras this property offers. If you are looking for a luxury upmarket holiday home and gilt edged investment, or somewhere to retire with everything on your doorstep including the Promenade, Blue Flag beach, golf club, and tennis club, then Dun Na Carriage could be the one for you. The advised minimum value is €180,000 and open viewing starts on Saturday February 15 from 1.45pm to 2.15pm.
All three properties will be auctioned by Don Colleran on March 27 at 3pm in the Victoria Hotel, Eyre Square.
