Colleran auctioneers’ next auction on October 16 will include properties in some of Galway's most desirable areas, all within walking distance of the college and city centre.
No 3 Ashe Road, Shantalla, adjacent to the hospital and college, is a very spacious three/four bedroom extended terraced house which is owner occupied and beautifully maintained throughout. Easily one of the finest Shantalla homes to be offered for sale for some time, you cannot but be impressed with what this house offers. Accommodation includes a bright sitting room with feature cast iron fireplace, kitchen/dining room with sliding patio door, separate living room with solid fuel stove, utility, and downstairs toilet. On the first floor there is a spacious master bedroom, en suite with walk-in dressing area, and two more double bedrooms and a bathroom. The attic has been converted and is currently being used as a fourth bedroom. The front garden has been removed to provide ample off street parking and the back garden is beautifully paved and decked with a garden shed and block built workshop. AMV is €180,000. Open viewings begin Saturday from 1pm to 2pm.
Another property being offered for auction in this area is St Anne’s, No 16 Newcastle Road, a three bedroom period style end of terrace house full of original character, high ceilings, and original fireplaces. With the hospital and city centre close by this is an obvious gilt edged investment but because of its character and potential will also appeal to those looking for a home with every necessary amenity on your doorstep. Accommodation includes a bright entrance hall, beautiful bright sitting room with a bay window offering views of Galway Cathedral, a dining room with an original fireplace, a kitchenette, and a study which has also been used as a fourth bedroom and is adjacent to the ground floor bathroom with toilet, shower, and wash hand basin. On the first floor there are three generous sized bedrooms with high ceilings and one with its original cast iron fireplace. There is a separate bathroom also on this floor. To the rear of the property there is an extension which can be used as bedrooms or a separate self contained flat. AMV is €225,000. Open viewings begin Saturday from 11am to 12 noon.
Also for auction on October 16 is a house in the Claddagh, an area where Don Colleran continues to sell most houses — this is the eighth house on this road alone he has been favoured with the sale of. No 15 Upper Fairhill is a beautiful two bedroom end of terrace house on a large site offering loads of room to develop, subject to planning. The Claddagh remains once of Galway's most sought after addresses, and this is not surprising is every facility is nearby. The city centre is less than a five minute walk and Salthill Promenade is just 300 yards away. In turnkey condition, accommodation includes a large sitting room with cast iron fireplace, dining room, and beautifully fitted kitchenette. On the first floor there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. One of the bedrooms is so large that some owners of similar houses have converted this room into two bedrooms. AMV is €290,000. Open viewings begin on Saturday from 12 noon to 1pm.
If the Claddagh is not large enough for you but you still want that superb location with everything within walking distance, then No 5 Grattan Court maybe just what you are looking for. This large, bright, four bedroom detached house is situated just off Fr Griffin Road in a small private development of detached homes which all front onto a large green area. This home has the additional advantage of a sun filled west facing back garden which is not overlooked because of an additional large green area to the rear of the house. The spacious living accommodation includes a large extended sitting room with feature marble fireplace, bright fitted kitchen, separate dining room, study/playroom, and downstairs bathroom. On the first floor there are four bedrooms with master bedroom en suite and a tiled bathroom. To the rear of the property there is a large chalet which currently offers separate independent living accommodation. AMV is €380,000. Open viewings begin this Saturday from 3pm 4pm.
These four properties will be auctioned at 3pm on October 16 in The Victoria Hotel, Eyre Square. For further information contact Colleran auctioneers at (091 ) 562293.
