Barna Gardens is an exclusive enclave of several of Galway’s most magnificent homes which are discreetly situated adjacent to Barna Woods.

A mature tree-lined avenue leads from the Barna Road to the various properties. At the end of this avenue and enjoying a tranquil and secluded setting is a magnificent residence which is currently on the market with Mullery Auctioneers.

The residence, which was built less than 10 years ago, offers luxurious, well planned and generously proportioned accommodation extending to approximately 4,200 square feet with an additional 1,300 sq ft of accommodation in attic rooms.

The residence, which is finished to exacting standards, boasts a quality high-end finish and is overflowing with many bespoke features. The sumptuous interior designed rooms are finished with a mix of painted walls, contemporary wallpapers and bespoke wall panelling.

Set on about one acre of glorious landscaped grounds, the house is approached by a sweeping gravelled driveway which leads to a parking area at the front of the house. At the end of the driveway, secure electronically controlled gates provide access from the main avenue.

A set of limestone steps lead to the front door of this stunning home. Once over the threshold, one is greeted by an entrance lobby with travertine tiled floor and glazed doors leading to a vast, yet very welcoming hall.

This stunning space, enhanced by high ceilings, boasts a beautiful fireplace with a basket gas fire to the left and a stunning bespoke curved staircase on the opposite side. The hall is finished with travertine tiled floors and ceiling coving.

Off the hall to the right is a beautifully appointed sitting room finished with herringbone wooden floors, fireplace with a basket gas fire, painted timber wall panelling and luxurious wall paper. This room opens directly to what is without doubt the heart of this home. The kitchen/dining room features a bespoke solid wood kitchen with silestone worktops, a large central island unit with sink and a pantry.

The floors are finished with a herringbone wooden floor and the walls are in part timber panelled. A set of double doors lead from the kitchen to the rear garden, an ideal place to sit and enjoy breakfast on a sunny summer morning.
