O’Donnellan & Joyce has a number of properties for sale that would make ideal family homes and that have the benefit of separate accommodation with earning potential.
Dunmore House, No 3 Taylor's Hill, Galway
Located close to the city centre, Anne Harding of O’Donnellan & Joyce describes Dunmore House as "a substantial residential family home for sale in the premier location of Taylor's Hill”. Dunmore House is a detached eight bedroom home with an imposing façade fronting on to Lower Taylor's Hill. To the rear are two one-bed apartments in a separate building. Being so close to NUIG and GTI, this property has the added potential to earn rental income.
The main house has a wonderful internal layout to provide a home of distinction. It requires some upgrading and refurbishment to bring it up to a modern standard, but according to Ms Harding “properties of this size and in this area rarely come to the market”.
Accommodation at Dunmore House includes an entrance hall, lounge room, family/dining room, kitchen, and utility/boiler room on the ground floor. The first floor comprises a bathroom, five bedrooms, and a small toilet. The second floor has another three bedrooms and a bathroom. Outside, you will find a large driveway leading to a rear yard and to the separate building with two one-bed flats.
A leisurely stroll takes you in to Galway city centre with its vibrant cobbled streets, shops, bars, and restaurants. Salthill, Galway Lawn Tennis Club, and Galway Golf Club are a five minute drive away, and Dunmore House is just around the corner from a number of notable primary and post primary schools along with NUIG and UHG. This property's highly desirable location is ideal. The main house and the apartments have a BER of G on BER nos 107900243, 107898140, and 107900276. Viewing is highly recommended and guaranteed not to disappoint. Asking price is €575,000.
No 36 Michael Collins Road, Mervue, Galway
In Mervue, Anne Harding is also looking after the sale of two three-bed terraced houses at Michael Collins Road. No 36 Michael Collins Road is an end of terrace property located on the main road enjoying off street parking and a rear entrance. Presented in good condition, it has been fitted with good quality double glazed windows and doors and oil fired central heating. To the rear of the property there is a fine one bedroom self-contained apartment which would provide a great supplement to an owner-occupier’s income. The property should also be of interest to an investor, as Michael Collins Road is close to GMIT, Bon Secours Hospital, Merlin Park Hospital, and Galway Clinic. The area is also well known for its business parks and industrial estates, accommodating many large multinational companies and their employees in Ballybrit and Parkmore. The BER is C3 on BER no. 103973277, with an asking price of €195,000.
No 34 Michael Collins Road, Mervue, Galway
This three bed mid-terrace house is also located on the main road, with off-street parking and a rear entrance. Also presented in good condition, it has good quality double glazed windows and doors and oil fired central heating. Again, there is a one bedroom self-contained apartment to the rear of the house, which would add to the income of the household if rented out. The BER is D1 on BER no 103973251. Viewing is highly recommended for both properties. No 34 Michael Collins Road has an asking price of €185,000.
