Galway Daily property City Centre duplex would make a great investment

This two storey duplex property in Galway City Centre would make an incredible investment for any owner, with multiple units in a highly desired location.

O’Donnellan & Joyce Auctioneers are offering 16a & 16b O’Donoghue Terrace on the Headford Road for sale by public auction later this month.

The three bedroom, end-terrace duplex house on the Headford Road is subdivided into two separate two storey units, one of which is a two bedroom unit, and the other is a single bed home.

16a, which faces out onto the Headford Road, has a tiled entrance hall leading into the downstairs residential area, consisting of a kitchen/living room, and shower room.

The cozy living room/kitchen is a bright space thanks to windows to the front and rear, and features both electric heating, and a solid fuel stove in an attractive fireplace for winter evenings.

The downstairs shower room is fully tiled, for easy cleaning and maintenance, and is outfitted with an electric shower, ensuring a constant supply of hot water.

The two double bedrooms are located on the first floor, both of which have well placed windows providing lots of light, and built in wardrobes for storage space.

The second unit, 16b, is accessed from the rear of the property, off St Bridget’s Place. It consists of a living room/kitchen downstairs, and a double bedroom and shower room upstairs.

The tiled downstairs space is outfitted with all kitchen appliances and storage units, and includes additional storage space under the stairs.

The double bedroom upstairs comes with fitted wardrobe space; and the fully tiled bathroom contains an enclosed electric shower cubicle, along with access to the attic.

Both properties in this duplex currently have tenants in situ.

The sub-division presents a plethora of options for any owner. The two units can be rented separately for tenants with different needs, or one unit could be occupied and another let out to supplement income.

Beyond that, the two sides of the property could be amalgamated by renovating them into a larger home in a very attractive location, making it an extremely valuable investment.

The location of the property on the corner at O’Donoghue Terrace is a nexus of many amenities in Galway City.

It is right in the heart of Woodquay, a neighbourhood of growing popularity for gastro pubs and nightlife, just a minute’s walk from Eyre Square and Shop Street, and right across the river from NUI Galway.
