Situated just 2.5 miles from NUIG and UHG, Boroondara is a charming property set on a magnificent elevated site. Designed in the seventies and extended in the early nineties, the entire rear aspect offers stunning views of Lough Corrib and its environs. The property extends to 2,800sq ft over two floors and is sited on a mature and well landscaped half acre site.
At the entrance to the property is a teak door with stained glass panels leading to a foyer of solid oak flooring, raised ceilings, and minstrel gallery. Full length glass panel doors lead to a formal lounge and raised dining area. Adjacent to the lounge is a lovely sunroom with wraparound glass windows and sliding patio doors leading to the side of the house. Just off the lounge there is also a games room which would be ideal for use as a playroom or home office. Double French doors lead to the informal lounge with wraparound windows offering the most wonderful views — double French doors lead to the rear gardens and patio.
Further accommodation at ground floor level includes a guest wc with shower, double bedroom, and kitchen which sits to the front of the property and comes with ample built-in units, top quality appliances, and free standing centre island. The utility with built-in units, stainless steel sink, and door to rear gardens is situated to the rear of the kitchen.
A solid teak stairs leads to the mezzanine level which has a superb reading gallery with large windows offering maximum light and amazing views to delight. To the front of the mezzanine is a covered balcony, supported by three columns looking on to Tonabrockey and Ballagh and the city beyond. This is an ideal place to relax, read, and enjoy the lovely views.
There are four double bedrooms at first floor level, all with built-in wardrobes and ample built-in presses and shelving. The master bedroom can only be described as spectacular. A generous 300sq ft with a separate fully tiled en suite, it has three large picture windows offering amazing views that captivate and delight from dawn to late evening — the colour of the sky and lake change at a whim. Once the sun goes down the twinkling lights of Annaghdown and Headford appear and one would never tire of enjoying this wonderful vista. The bed and built-in wardrobes are placed strategically so, on waking, the view is the first thing the lucky new owners will see.
The exterior of the residence is very well landscaped with mature shrubbery and trees. The front entrance is tarmacadamed while the rear and front patios are laid in Liscannor stone. A wooden footbridge between flowerbeds adds to the challenge and fun for younger members of the family. Given the aspect of the property, one can rest assured that any spare time will be spent here.
Boroondara is situated in a quiet cul de sac with two excellent national schools, Tooreeney and Bushypark, mere minutes away. The five star Glenlo Abbey is just a five minute walk away, offering formal and informal dining, golf course, local hostelry, etc. Dangan sportsground, part of the NUIG complex, caters for every possible sporting amenity with pedestrian walks along the Corrib leading to the college and the Kingfisher sports and leisure complex. Moycullen, to the west, is approximately three miles from the property. A bustling and thriving village with formal and informal dining on offer, excellent supermarkets, fishmongery, butcher, day spa, and boutique, not forgetting the extremely popular and impressive Friday market.
Gortacleva, Bushypark, is an area of high demand and this property is sure to attract significant attention, given its proximity to the city, NUIG, and UHG.
