Positioned in a breathtaking location overlooking Galway Bay and the surrounding Connemara landscape, DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard has included this beautiful property on c21 acres in the first of its summer auctions on June 9.
Located at Barrandoire, which is close to Carraroe and just 50 minutes west of Galway city, this traditional home which has been beautifully renovated and extended overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and includes the surrounding 21 acres of land including road frontage and shoreline. The current owners have preserved all of the traditional feel of the property, including high level ceilings and open hearth fireplace, but have spared nothing in terms of modern convenience. With five spacious bedrooms this 160sq m property makes for a family or holiday home that is sure to appeal to a wide cross section of buyers. A feature crow’s nest has been included at attic level to take full advantage of the spectacular sea views.
The setting overlooks the heathland and mountain range on one side, and on the other you can relax in the manicured half acre garden and watch the fishing boats and Aran Island ferry as they make their way into Galway Bay. A very short walk leads to a private sea shore area, alternatively the public beach is just three minutes' walk away. Carraroe, or An Cheathru Rua, has grown from a small local economy to a cosmopolitan mix of indigenous industry and has excellent connections to NUIG and the Irish language TV station TG4, which is just a short distance away. There are local schools, shops, and amenities close by and the area has a thriving tourist industry.
Viewings at An Barrandoire can be made by appointment with the agents, with contract documents available to upload from the agent's secure data room. The guide price of €280,000 is, according to agent Alan Maxwell, reflective of the high quality renovations and the excellent potential that the adjoining lands offer.
For overseas or other buyers unable to attend the auction, DNG Maxwell Heaslip & Leonard offers an online bidding service that can be pre-arranged by contacting the office.
