The team at Colleran auctioneers knew they had something special when they offered St Anne’s, No 16 Newcastle Road, for sale by auction, but the huge interest exceeded their expectations with a large crowd viewing the house on the first day of open viewing.
Although the house is in need of some modernisation, everyone was immediately taken by the fabulous character and potential St Anne’s offers, from its original terrazzo floor to its beautiful high ceilings with original 1930s plaster centrepiece, and its well proportioned, bright, living space. Built in the 1930s on an elevated site, this end of terrace three/four bedroom home has the added benefit of a side entrance into a small back yard.
Accommodation includes a bright entrance hall, beautiful bright sitting room with a bay window offering views of Galway Cathedral, a dining room with original fireplace, a kitchenette, and a study which has also been used as a fourth bedroom and is adjacent to ground floor 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 was once used as bedrooms or a separate self contained flat.
If you are looking for a city centre house full of charm and character or a gilt edge investment then St Anne’s will tick all the boxes with all necessary amenities on your doorstep. Investors will not beat this for location as it is adjacent to the hospital and NUIG.
No 16 Newcastle Road will be offered for sale by public auction on October 16 with an AMV of €225,000. Open viewings take place each Saturday from 11am to 12 noon.
