Don Colleran's next auction on March 16 will include properties in prime locations such as Claddagh, Renmore, Castlelawn Heights, and Bohermore with open viewings on all properties beginning this weekend. Colleran auctioneers has established itself as a go-to auctioneer when selling your house in the Claddagh, and its reputation is now further underlined with the inclusion of two Claddagh properties in the March auction.
Finding a bungalow in Galway is difficult, finding a bungalow in turnkuey condition in one of Galway's most sought after areas is rarer still. No 6 St Dominick's Road, Claddagh, is a stunning, spacious, end of terrace bungalow which was reconstructed and extended in 2005 to a very high standard. What is now on offer is a quality, warm, welcoming, home just off the Salthill Promenade and only a short stroll to the city centre. The reconstruction and redesign of this property was carefully planned to provide spacious accommodation, which is seldom found in houses so close to the city centre. Accommodation includes three bedrooms, two of which are large double rooms, and one en suite; a spacious kitchen with a very generous range of built in and overhead units; dining room; and a cosy sitting room with a solid fuel stove that complements the oil fired central heating. The front lawn has been removed and fully paved for ease of maintenance and to provide off street parking for two cars. There is also a side entrance to a small back yard with a block built shed. While homes in The Claddagh appeal to everyone, the fact that No 6 St Dominick's Road is a bungalow and with every amenity on your doorstep, it will certainly appeal to anyone looking for a quality city centre home in which to retire. Open viewing takes place Saturday from 2.30pm to 3pm.
Renmore continues to be one of Galway's most sought after locations for families and investors. For families its facilities are unrivalled with parks and playing fields around every corner, and schools, beaches, leisure centre, hospital, church, and shops all on your doorstep. For investors Renmore has always been a gilt edge investment with GMIT across the road and some of Galway's biggest employers less than 5k away. In need of modernisation, No 16 Elm Park, Renmore, is very attractively priced at an AMV of €260,000. Accommodation includes entrance hall, spacious sitting room, separate dining room, fitted kitchen, and downstairs toilet. On the first floor there are two large double bedrooms, a single bedroom, and a bathroom. As with most Renmore houses there is a garage which can be developed for further living space. What makes No 16 Elm Park even more attractive is that it has its own side entrance not found in all Renmore houses and is located in a small, very well maintained, cul de sac opposite the Kingfisher Leisure Centre. Open viewing takes place Saturday 11am to 11.30am.
Also included in Colleran's auction is No 160 Castlelawn Heights, a three bedroom semi within walking distance of the city centre and NUIG. Castlelawn Heights has always been a sought after area for both investors and families not just because of its location so close to the city centre but also its vicinity to excellent services which include large shopping centres, cinema, and recreational facilities. While the house would benefit from a little TLC it is ready for immediate occupancy and presented in excellent condition. Accommodation includes entrance hall with downstairs toilet and wash hand basin, sitting room with open fireplace, dining room, and fitted kitchen. On the first floor there are three bedrooms with one en suite and a bathroom. The front garden has been removed and paved for ease of maintenance and off street parking. The back garden is lawned and there is a block built boiler house and timber shed for additional storage. The house has oil fired central heating and double glazing. AMV €180,000. Open viewing Saturday 12 noon to 12.30pm.
It is back into the city centre for the next property at No 35 Cooke's Terrace, Bohermore. This is a deceptively spacious terraced property which has been tastefully extended to virtually double the size of the original house. Maintained in excellent order throughout, this property now provides an abundance of living space you will not find in similar properties so close to Eyre Square. Accommodation includes entrance porch, entrance hall with study/reading room, sitting room with feature fireplace, and a very spacious fitted kitchen/dining room with French patio doors opening out to an extremely large paved patio area, which is elevated offering unrestricted views over the city towards the River Corrib. This west facing patio is excellent for barbecues and entertainment. On the first floor there are four bedrooms, all large enough to accommodate double beds, and a fully tiled bathroom. While the location of Cooke's Terrace will make it immediately attractive to investors, Don Colleran strongly recommends that families looking to live in the city, with all conveniences on your doorstep, should view this property because of the abundance of accommodation on offer. AMV €195,000. Open viewing Saturday 12.45pm to 1.15pm.
