Galway’s top locations feature in Colleran’s June auction

No 27 Upper Fairhill.

No 27 Upper Fairhill.

Following on the huge success of Colleran auctioneers’ last auction, in which all properties sold, the company now has even more attractive value in its June auction with properties in Galway’s most sought after areas of The Claddagh, Renmore, Newcastle, Mervue, Shantalla, and Salthill. The Claddagh still remains one of the most desirable locations in Galway for both investors and home hunters, as was certainly the case at Colleran auctioneers’ auction last month when South Park Place, Claddagh, exceeded all expectations.

The next auction includes a real gem at No 27 Upper Fairhill, a rare detached two bedroom house sitting on a large corner site with obvious development potential. In excellent condition throughout with new oil fired central heating and double glazing, this property ticks all the boxes and is only 100 yards from Salthill Promenade and Galway Bay. AMV is €180,000. Open viewing Saturdays from 2pm to 3pm.

No 7 Shantalla Road is probably only second to The Claddagh in popularity for city centre properties. This home is close to Cooke’s Corner on a very large site. This three bedroom detached house is in need of considerable attention but with an AMV of only €70,000 it is a must view opportunity. It is just a 10 minute stroll to the hospital, NUIG, and city centre, making it an obvious choice for investors or families with children attending college, but its unusually large site will also attract first time buyers looking for a city centre location with huge back garden which you will seldom find in the city. Open viewing is Saturdays from 1.15pm to 1.45pm.

No 9 Quinn Terrace, Mervue will also be of interest to investors or first time buyers because of its attractive price and spacious living accommodation. In addition to the three bedrooms, sitting room, living room, and kitchenette there is a very large back garden with a large garage which has the added attraction of rear vehicle access into the garage. In need of a little TLC, which been clearly reflected in the AMV of €70,000, this is certainly not one to miss. Open viewing Saturdays 11am to 12 noon.

As Galway areas go Dun Na Mara Drive, Renmore, offers more open green space and parks then others, making this one of the most desirable areas in which to raise a family with every necessary facility on your doorstep. No 67 Dun Na Mara Drive, Renmore, is a three/four bedroom semi in a quiet cul de sac flanked on both sides by two of the largest green areas in Renmore. Accommodation includes three/four bedrooms, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, utility, oil fired central heating, and double glazing. AMV is €160,000. Open viewing Saturdays 11am to 12 noon.

No 66 Coogan Park, Newcastle, located close to the hospital rear entrance and less than a 10 minute stroll to NUIG, will certainly interest investors especially with an AMV of only €80,000. This three bedroom, end of terrace home, in need of a little modernisation, offers spacious living accommodation and an extremely wide side entrance which allows you to drive around the side of the house where there is a large shed, once used as a workshop. Open viewing Saturdays 12.30pm to 1pm.

Rockbarton Court in the heart of Salthill, opposite Pearse Stadium, has always been a very desirable location in which to live, not just because of its mature setting less than five minutes from the Promenade, but these apartments were built when space and quality were not considered additional extras. With 1,000sq ft of living accommodation on offer this is certainly one of the larger apartments available. Nicely constructed in blocks of four, this secure first floor two bedroom apartment has extremely bright living accommodation and looks out onto large open green areas from both the front and the back of the apartment. As a large number of the apartments within this exclusive development are owner occupied, there is a great sense of community which is very obvious from the excellent way in which the development and its common areas are always maintained. If you are looking for a location to retire or a magnificent location for a holiday home in Galway you will find it difficult to find anything to rival this large apartment, which has an AMV of only €140,000. Open viewing Saturdays 3.30pm to 4.30pm.
