Published

8 The Crescent.

A stunning period property in Galway City – which has been beautifully restored – has been sold for in the more than €1 million to an overseas buyer as a family home.

The Crescent comprises beautiful residential properties combined with consulting rooms for professionals – the area has long been associated with the medical and legal profession.

Number 8 has been restored and refurbished to provide an outstanding property which possesses style and taste. The property could be used as superior family home, consulting rooms or other business use or a mixture of both.

It’s a distinctive two storey over-basement terraced house standing on a magnificent elevated site with a large rear garden with rear access to Palmyra Avenue and parking for up to six cars.

It boasts space in abundance split over three levels, with a substantial rear garden and potential for further development if required (subject to planning permission).

Selling agent Colm O’Donnellan of O’Donnellan & Joyce told Tribune Property: “This was a once in a lifetime opportunity as properties in The Crescent rarely come on to the market, as they are usually passed down through the generations.”

It attracted interest from potential buyers locally, nationally and internationally.

The property is a listed building, and boasts features such as high ceilings and feature cornices, its original windows, fireplaces, shutters, doors and stairs.

There are extensions to neighbouring properties, so it may be possible to extend here, and there is also the possibility of developing two 2-bed apartments or offices to the rear, or even a further house over the existing carparking area.

“It was acquired by an overseas client who was looking for a family home,” he said.

The selling price has now been listed as €1,080,000 on the Property Price Register.

At home in Salthill’s ‘secret garden’!

Published

on

Lenaboy Park has often been described as Salthill’s secret garden, located just a short three-minute walk to the famous Promenade.

It was once part of the original gardens of Lenaboy Castle on Taylor’s Hill. Access is through large black gates situated between the former Warwick Hotel and Care Pharmacy/Morton’s Supermarket in Lower Salthill.

Upon entering, there is a beautifully, landscaped park in the centre of the development, surrounded by a mixture of homes. No 22 is ideally located in a small quiet cul de sac with pedestrian access to the neighbouring Emerson Avenue.

A large, detached home built in the 1940s, this home contains many original features including some original fireplaces, solid timber floors, decorative coving and the original timber stairs. The unique character blends the modern interiors with the historic past and this is evident throughout this family home.

Outside the large garden is a rare find and benefits from having two large apple trees that likely pre-date the property itself. The rear boundaries are clearly defined by a mixture of block walls and timber fence.

To the front of the property, a pedestrian gate opens onto a path and there is a lawn either side with mature shrubbery.

The accommodation comprises of four reception rooms downstairs, a drawing room, living room, sitting room and large L-shaped kitchen/living/dining room. One of these rooms could be used as a downstairs bedroom if required. A shower room completes the downstairs accommodation.

Upstairs, there are three further bedrooms, the main bathroom and a walk in hot-press. An attached garage is to the side of the house for all your storage needs.

The asking price is €835,000. For further information or for viewing, contact Sherry FitzGerald on 091 569123.
