Renville House

The magnificent Renville House (formally known as Renville Lodge) overlooking Galway Bay in Oranmore will go under the hammer next week with a price tag of €2 million.

Owned by the Lydon family since the 1960s, this is a splendid property on a unique setting on 135 acres of some of the best limestone land in the county. It is all in one block with good-sized divisions and extensive road frontage on two roads.

The various fields are divided by the traditional stone walls, typical of the area, which help to create a wonderful charm and sense of times gone by. Approached via a winding avenue approximately a half-mile from the road, the house is positioned on a spectacular elevated setting with farmyard to the rear, Coach House and a derelict Herd’s Cottage.

Renville House is 388 sq m (4,176 sq ft) with a south-westerly aspect was constructed in circa 1820 and comprises an extensive two storey house, formerly known as Renville Lodge. There are many traditional features remaining, including timber windows with shutters, marble fireplaces and plaster work.

Overall, while the house would benefit from some modernisation, there is an elegance and charm that is immediately appealing. The property backs onto the spectacular Galway Bay with over 800 metres (2,600 ft) sea frontage.

Outside, there is a range of gardens with some mature timber and the vista over the front paddocks providing a splendid uninterrupted view of the estate.

The Coach House is located behind the main residence and it is a traditional limestone building converted into living accommodation making it ideal for guests or staff. It comprises a kitchen, living room, bathroom and two bedrooms (one en suite).

The yard is located to the rear of the main residence and coach house and comprises a number of traditional farm buildings including a lovely two storey limestone building which could convert to a guest cottage in addition to six boxes; four span hay shed with lean-to; silage slab; old milking parlour; ancillary sheds and cattle crush.

The derelict Herd’s Cottage is located in the middle of the holding and has its own internal gravel drive providing access. It is currently in a poor state of repair but could be refurbished to provide a splendid feature on the holding. It has tremendous views over Galway Bay.

There is a lovely old walled garden to the west of the residence and yards. Although not presently used, the walls themselves are in good repair and it could potentially provide a lovely feature to the estate for a new purchaser.

The property is within the jurisdiction of Galway County Council and is located on the edge of the development boundary for Oranmore under the Local Area Plan 2012 – 2018.

A section of the lands adjoining the bay are located in an area classified as a ‘Special Area of Conservation (SAC), Special Protection Area (SPA) and Proposed National Heritage Area (PNHA). The house is also recorded as a ‘Protected Structure’.

The Advised Minimum Value is €2m. The auction takes place on Thursday, July 14 at 3pm in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Galway. For further information, contact Jordan Auctioneers on 045 433550.

Built in 1999, the property at Drum East near Bushypark extends to 3,000 sq ft and has around 0.75 of an acre of easily maintained gardens.

On the lower ground floor is a large open plan room suitable for a variety of uses and two further separate rooms.  All rooms are large, bright and spacious.

The care and thought that has gone into this home is evident with the quality of fittings, such as solid timber floors, tiling, kitchen fittings and bathrooms have recently been refitted with new showers, tiling and suites.

The thermal efficiencies have been improved with extensive retro fitting of insulation, including pumping walls and attic insulation.

A two-bed townhouse at Weighbridge House in Oughterard is going to auction with a starting price of €120,000.

An online auction with a dedicated catalogue of holiday homes around the country will take place in July, offering a mix of houses and apartments in coastal areas, rural cottages, and high-end properties in scenic locations.

IAM Sold Property Auctions, which runs the Connacht, Leinster, Munster and Northern Ireland Property Auctions will be holding the auction on July 15.

The auction team is now inviting anyone looking to purchase or sell a holiday home in Ireland to get in contact.

Company Director Patrick Folan said: “The annual Holiday Home Property Auction event is normally held at an event in Dublin, but this year we have moved it completely online. This will accommodate buyers regardless of location in Ireland or abroad and is the ideal platform with the current travel restrictions in place.

“The auction will offer buyers the opportunity to view and purchase a wide range of holiday homes throughout the country.

“There will be a particular focus on coastal areas and also properties that include small parcels of adjoining land. Anyone looking to buy or sell a holiday home property this summer should make contact with us and we will advise from there.

“There is no cost for the homeowner to enter a property into the auction and each property will receive excellent exposure across Ireland and the UK, in both national press and online marketing streams. We are seeing a lot of enquires coming from the UK again in recent weeks. We already have a large volume of buyers coming into the market looking for their perfect getaway or indeed retirement home and the holiday home auction is an excellent route to target this market,” said Mr Folan.

Ballynasooragh, Mountbellew: seeking bids over €195,000 at online auction.

The Connacht Property Auction will hold their next online auctions on June 3 and July 1 and are still accepting properties from vendors to add to the catalogues.

According to the auctioneers, there is “huge demand” for properties at the moment, despite the pandemic.

Shane May said: “Previous years have shown the April to July period is particularly strong for selling residential and commercial property. While circumstances this year are very different to previous years, we are seeing huge demand for properties and our auction team are keen to speak to property owners who are considering bringing their property to the market.”

He said that with demand for property extraordinarily strong right now, property owners should consider coming to market sooner rather than later.

“We are encouraging owners considering selling their property and indeed buyers to contact us to discuss. We offer properties across the province and remain the only auction provider in Ireland who do not charge any upfront costs to entry a property into their auction,” said Mr May.

The next auction will offer a great selection of properties and while prices are continuing to increase, there is still choice and value to be found for buyers as well.
