House with history attached on Maunsells Road, Galway

The location is one of the most desirable in the city and the history of this unique family home is also steeped in Galway’s history, designed as it was for the Eyre family – synonymous with Eyre Square.

But Benarde on Maunsells Road in Taylor’s Hill is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Dating back to the 1840’s, it boasts five bedrooms with beautiful private green surroundings on a substantial corner plot.

The property was originally constructed in the 1840’s by the Eyre family of Fort Eyre, Eyre Square and Eyrecourt, and original features with period-style characteristics are evident throughout.

Consisting of approximately 234.2 sq.m, the property offers an abundance of accommodation over two stories.

The ground floor consists of three reception areas, study, kitchen, service and bathroom areas, whilst the upstairs areas offer five bedrooms.

Given the age of the property, Benarde will undoubtedly benefit from retrograding & refurbishment, however considering the space on offer, unique & beautiful features rare to a Galway City detached residences, Benarde offers huge potential to create a beautiful family home.

A key feature for Benarde is the outside space on offer. Centrally positioned on a large site, surrounded by greenery and offering plentiful privacy, the property boasts some of the most amazing outside space rare to city living.

Along with the green surroundings, the property benefits from off-street parking via a beautiful hedge-lined driveway, an old stone out-house with potential for a variety of uses, and three points for street access.

It is for sale by private treaty through O’Donnellan & Joyce Auctioneers – with an asking price of €1.4 million and viewing is highly recommended. For further details contact O’Donnellan & Joyce on 091-564212.
