galway daily news property for auction galway city

For house hunters looking for an ideal family home or gilt edged investment opportunity, this exceptional four bed detached home in Galway city might tick all the boxes.

O’Donnellan & Joyce is auctioning 18 Sylvan Drive this Friday, 26 February 2021 at 12pm noon by live stream auction, with an advised minimum value of €330,000.

The property, which has an integrated garage, is situated on a prime site in the popular residential area of Fairlands Park in the city neighbourhood of Newcastle.

The detached home is conveniently accessed via a ramp at the front door which leads into the entrance porch with timber flooring and a glass door and window, allowing for lots of natural light to flood into the hall.

In the entrance hall, an open stairwell leads to the first floor, which has four bedrooms – including a large master bedroom which has carpet flooring, and an aluminium-framed window overlooking the green space to the front.

Back on the ground floor, the kitchen has ample space – more than enough for a kitchen table. It has lino flooring and a sink unit with a single drainer at the large window, which looks out into the rear garden.

There is also a dining room, conservatory and a living room with an open fireplace with stone surround and timber overmantle.

On the doorstep of NUI Galway and UCHG, 18 Sylvan Drive is conveniently located within walking distance of Galway city centre, Westside Shopping Centre and Aldi supermarket. 

Whilst the property could benefit from some refurbishment, 18 Sylvan Road has been well maintained and presented in quality condition throughout.

O’Donnellan and Joyce’s next property auction will take place on Friday 26 February 2021 at 12 midday.
