Auction: 8th Mar 2018 13:00h, Leopardstown Pavilion



8th of March 2018 at the Leopardstown Pavilion, Dublin at 13.00.

Substantial two and a half storey detached family home on a site of approximately .29 Acres overlooking Galway Golf Course and with views towards Galway Bay. The original home was built on this site circa 1930’s and for many years was the home of the resident Golf Professional at Galway Golf Course. The house was substantially extended in the late 1980’s early 1990’s to provide the home that exists today. It is at a stage in its life cycle that it will benefit from modernisation and thought to take full advantage of the site and scope it offers.

Accessed directly off Kingston Road onto a tarmacadam avenue that leads via side of the house to parking area at the rear of the residence. The 0.36 acre site is made up from mature gardens with lawns to the front and rear, established hedgerow boundaries offering privacy. Patio area in a private garden at the rear which benefits from natural light particularly afternoon and evening sun.

Kingston is one of Galway’s most sought after locations close to the established schools, sporting amenities and The Promenade. Detached residence on large sites rarely came to the market in the area and No. 33 has both. It benefits from having superb views over Galway Golf Club and offers scope to further develop the site and house to fully maximise its potential.
