Galway Daily property Stylish house and gardens in sought after city neighbourhood

This elegant two-storey house being sold by O’Donnellan & Joyce Auctioneers is a rare chance to acquire a home in one of the most sought after locations in Galway City.

Saint Theresa’s, Taylor’s Hill is a four-bed detached house, with well maintained grounds, that serves as a veritable oasis in the heart of the city.

Kept in beautiful condition throughout, with its original features well preserved, this house has style and elegance both inside and outdoors.

The ground floor of the house is the living area, with rooms all situated off the main entrance hall. While the hall is carpeted, stepping into the living and dining rooms you find warm hardwood floors that contribute the old style elegance of the building.

The living and dining rooms are both centred around feature fireplaces, with a smaller fireplace in another lounge area to the rear of the house.

The large and airy kitchen mixes that same old fashioned elegance with modern furnishings and tiled floor, for the best of both worlds. The kitchen comes with ample storage and work space in the abundance of cupboards, and a fitted stone countertop wrapping half of the room.

A separate utility room provided extra storage space, and another countertop working area, along with having rooms for utilities.

Upstairs are the four spacious bedrooms, all carpeted for greater comfort, and featuring large windows that create a bright and airy atmosphere. Two of the bedrooms come with space for window nooks similar to downstairs, with one already built.

The main bathroom of the house on the first floor, tiled for easy cleaning and added style, is outfitted with both a shower and bath.

Outside, the property has far more space than is typical of a city house. The mature hedges, bushes, and other greenery in the substantial garden, all immaculately maintained, create a private oasis in the heart of Galway.

The garden area also boasts a large, paved patio area, with a wonderful stonework feature flower bed as a centrepiece, and outdoor furniture that is ideal for entertaining, or just enjoying the sun yourself.

Unusually, this property has two separate entrances. At one, an attractive wrought iron gate and flowerbeds frame a pedestrian exit on Taylor’s Hill road itself, while another corner gate entrance at Maunsells Roads provides off-street car parking.

If more parking is needed by the homeowner, a solidly built shed to the rear of the property could also serve as a car garage, a storage place for gardening tools, or converted to any other use.

Taylor’s Hill is one of the most sought after residential neighbourhoods in Galway City, a quiet green street that hardly feels as though you’re in the heart of a metropolitan area.

Just a few minutes walk will bring you down to Salthill Village and Promenade, with its hotels, cafés and restaurants to enjoy, and a perfect sea view to take in while walking the Prom.

Five minutes drive towards the city centre will bring you to the hospital and NUI Galway, or just a minute further on into the Latin Quarter and downtown retail centre itself.

Saint Theresa’s is a perfect home for anyone looking for somewhere with space and privacy, but without giving up the convenience of living in the heart of Galway City.
