Nuns Island, Galway – SOLD €245,000

O’Donnellan & Joyce Auctioneers achieved sales totalling €6 million in their latest auction of properties along the Western seaboard.

Colm O’Donnellan said that while there was huge interest in properties in the city and Salthill, the big surprise of the day was a six-acre plot of land in Spiddal.

“As usual there was huge interest in Galway city and county properties, with family homes in Salthill at 6 D’Alton Drive and 22 Oaklands both selling for €475,000 and the hammer fell on the sale of 15 Ard na Mara at €400,000,” he said.

Highlights of the city centre property sales included a ‘fixer-upper’ at 31 Nuns Island.

“It attracted great interest, with four minutes of intense bidding, which brought the price from an opening bid of €170,000 to a final sale price of €245,000. Also, a two-bed apartment at 3 Drom Ard, just off Prospect Hill, sold for €176,000.

“The big surprise of the day, though, was a six-acre plot of land in Spiddal village, which had a guide price of €120,000. Two parties battled to buy the property, with intense bidding over a six-minute period, before it was finally sold for €310,000,” said Mr O’Donnellan.

Among the properties sold were:

1 Millrace House, Chapel Lane, Tuam. A ground floor commercial unit currently trading as the National Schoolwear Centre had an Advised Minimum Value of €75,000 and bidding opened at €70,000, before selling for €105,000.

5 Ardskeabeg, Corofin. A spacious five-bedroom bungalow in Corofin village, extending to 2,600 sq.ft and standing on a 0.5-acre site. Bidding opened at €140,000 with two bidders quickly bringing the sale to a conclusion at €165,000.

16A Sandyfort Business Park, Bohermore. A ground floor office unit with tenants in place generating €15,000 per annum and with three underground parking spaces. Guiding at €75,000, bidding was intense with three chasing the property in €5,000 increments, bringing it up to €169,000.

Bridge Street, Athenry. A takeaway restaurant with two apartments overhead. Generating an overall rental income of €21,000 per annum and sold with tenants in place, bidding opened at €160,000 with a phone bidder and an auction attendee both pursuing the bids in €5,000 increments. The phone bidder secured it at €200,000.

Turoe, Bullaun, Loughrea. A traditional style bungalow located close to Bullaun village had bids commence at €50,000. The AMV was €60,000 and bids rose steadily in €1,000 increments with €66,000 being the winning bid.

3 Plunkett Avenue, Mervue. Ground floor retail unit formerly used as a doctor’s surgery with an AMV of €75,000. The opening bid was €70,000, which was below the reserve but the purchaser promptly offered the asking price and the property was sold for €75,000.

3 Chapel Court, Chapel Lane, Tuam. A ground floor commercial unit suitable for a variety of uses had two strong bidders on it. Bids opened at €30,000 and the sale concluded at €40,000, the AMV.

Time and history conferred character on this home

The Hermitage, Ballymoe: on the market with a €425,000 guide price.

The Hermitage at Lisnageeragh, Ballymoe is a property on which time and history has conferred a character that no new property could mirror.

Overlooking 16.3 acres of rolling green fields which are included in the sale, this is indeed a unique house and comes to market with charming well maintained stone buildings. These could provide further family accommodation, holiday rentals or craft studios.

The front hall has a beautiful, curved window and leads to two reception rooms on either side of the house. The sitting room has an open fireplace with a black cast iron surround and wooden floors which gleam from years of care and reflect the light coming from two large windows. To the right-hand side, the dining room also has an attractive bay window and an oil-fired stove and it is indeed the perfect social /entertaining space.

To the rear of the house the kitchen is a classic example of a successful marriage of the old and the new. Bespoke shaker style units combine perfectly with modern recessed lighting, attractive tiling and includes a pantry area to one side. A good-sized bedroom and adjacent bathroom complete the downstairs of the main house.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms one of which has an en suite shower. The main bedroom is a delightful space which leads to another small room, a perfect nursery or walk in wardrobe.

€4.5m worth of property sold during online event

This detached house at Seacrest in Knocknacarra attracted a "staggering" level of interest.

More than €4.5 million worth of sales were recorded at the O’Donnellan & Joyce auction last week, where 350 people had pre-registered to bid on the 40 properties which went under the hammer.

80% of the properties sold during the auction or following negotiations immediately afterwards.

Among the properties sold at the auction were:

106 Seacrest, Knocknacarra, Galway. Guiding at €250,000 due to the extent of renovation and upgrade works required, the auctioneers were staggered at the level of interest in this 4-bed detached house.

Siobhra Hennessy, Senior Auction Co-Ordinator, said: “There is an increasing demand for city centre homes in need of repair. Couples want to put their own stamp on a property and often look for properties similar to this.”

Bidding commenced at €250,000 but quickly rose to over €350,000. After intense bidding from a number of internet and telephone bidders, the sale price of €364,000 was reached and the deal was done.

192 Bohermore, Galway. A 2-bed terraced house which attracted great attention, with many enquiries and bidders pre-registering. The house needs complete restoration and modernisation works but obviously appealed to a wide audience. It guided at €120,000, but sold for €179,000, despite the great amount of work required. Again, this is an example of a near-derelict building that offered great potential.
