GETTING TO GRIPS with a fast-changing property market is tricky, but we’re here to make things simpler.
Each week, we’ll handpick a number of homes within a similar budget, to give you a snapshot of the property landscape at a particular price point.
This week, we’re looking at properties around Co Galway with an asking price of exactly €425,000 – from a townhouse in Salthill to an eight-bed in Ballinamona.
Located in the heart of Barna village, 108 Creagan is a three-bed family home with a light-filled interior. The property benefits from a large extension which was built last year, comprising a large, stylish kitchen and a separate playroom. Sliding glass doors open to the rear garden and illuminate the space.
There’s also a spacious sitting room, utility room and guest bathroom on the ground floor. On the first floor, there are four bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, while the master bedroom features an en suite bathroom and access to a balcony. Barna pier and the beach are both a 10-minute walk away.
If you’re looking for a large property and a nice bit of land to go with it, Windrush House could be the one for you. Located on an elevated site of three acres, Windrush House spans 3,400 sq ft over three floors, and features eight bedrooms, five bathrooms and four living areas.
The property, which was built in 2001, comes to the market in turn-key condition and boasts impressive features and furnishings throughout, including solid fuel stoves, timber floors and a games room. Outside, there are landscaped gardens to the front and rear, as well as a large shed, paddocks and equestrian facilities.
A two-bedroom townhouse, 2 Gleann Eorna is a bright and attractive property with a unique design. It was completely renovated and modernised by its current owners in 2018, making for a warm and welcoming interior with modern touches. The accommodation covers three floors, with a home office and utility room on the second level.
The open-plan kitchen, living and dining room is the most impressive space in the house, with floor-to-ceiling windows in the living area and access to a south-facing balcony with views of Galway Bay. A V-shaped window in the dining area allows even more natural light. Salthill is a five-minute walk away, while Galway city centre can be reached in a 15-minute stroll.
Located on one acre of mature grounds, this four-bedroom property is impressive from the outset. It features an eye-catching salmon render and stone facade, while a beautiful tree-lined driveway leads to the house.
Stepping inside, there are multiple notable features throughout the 2,584 square feet of space, including slate flooring, feature fireplaces and a solid timber staircase. There are three reception rooms in the property, as well as a spacious kitchen and pantry. Three of the four bedrooms feature en suite bathrooms. Oranmore town is a five-minute drive away.
