Magnificent period property will leave you floating on Eyre

O’Donnellan & Joyce Auctioneers are handling the sale of a magnificent and unique residence in one of the most desirable locations of Galway City.

Positioned on the corner of Maunsells Road and Taylor’s Hill with beautiful private green surroundings, Benarde is a large detached residence steeped in history and culture.

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

Spanning 234.2 square metres, the property offers an abundance of accommodation over two storeys. The ground floor consists of three reception areas, study, kitchen, service and bathroom areas, whilst the upstairs areas offers five bedrooms.

Given the age of the property, Benarde will undoubtedly benefit from refurbishment. However considering the space on offer, unique and beautiful features rare to a Galway City detached residence, 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.

The location of Benarde is second-to-none positioned in one of the most sought-after residential locations in the city.

The asking price is €1.4 million. For further information or to arrange a viewing, contact O’Donnellan & Joyce on 091 564212 or visit
