Newly-renovated home sits opposite hospital

Lynch Auctioneers are handling the sale of a recently modernised three-bedroom family home in Shantalla in Galway.

No 22 Costello Road is a superb end-of-terrace property, located in the increasingly popular location of Shantalla – the University Hospital Galway campus is literally across the road, including the Clinical Science Institute and Lambe Institute.

Costello Road boasts a real community spirit and is also within walking distance of the University of Galway, the city centre and Salthill.

This property was constructed in the mid-1940s and measures approximately 100 square metres and is situated on a large corner site, giving it excellent potential for development.

An extension to the rear could be built up to 40 sq m without planning permission, and an extension to the side of the property could be possible, subject to planning permission.

No 22 has benefited recently from renovations and restoration, bringing it up to modern day standards, including fitting of new solid oak shaker style doors throughout, skirting and architrave, new windows and flooring throughout and new bathroom fitted.

On entering this beautiful home, you are greeted with a bright entrance hall and to the left is the main living area with original feature fireplace.

To the rear of the ground floor is the dining room which boasts a lovely fire surround and solid fuel stove and the small galley kitchen is situated just off the dining room area, through an open doorway.

There is a back door exit leading out on to an enclosed south-facing garden, allowing it to be a sun trap on sunny days.

On the first floor are three spacious bedrooms, two of which boast the original small fireplaces and there is a fully-tiled main bathroom which has recently been completely modernised.

Externally, the property boasts a front tarmac driveway with space to park two cars, a large side garden and a south facing spacious rear garden. There is also a concrete storage shed to the rear.

The advantage of the large side garden lends itself to a variety of uses and extension, subject to planning permission.

This impressive family home is a leisurely stroll to the city centre, a variety of primary and secondary schools, University of Galway, University Hospital Galway and all amenities.

Also a short distance away are the like of Tesco Express, Londis, the Sliding Rock bar and restaurant, as well as other cafés and restaurants in Newcastle; Westside Shopping Centre and West City Retail Park which houses Aldi.

Selling agent Shane Cox told Tribune Property: “No 22 must be viewed to really appreciate its spacious living accommodation and although the house has been modernised in recent times, it still holds on to some of the distinctive character with original quaint features, giving it a comfortable and cosy feel.

“This property would be an ideal purchase for the first time buyer, family or investor alike as it has never been previously rented.”

The asking price is €395,000. For further information or to arrange a viewing, contact Lynch Auctioneers on 091 566157.
