Partially constructed country house skips half the work of building a home

Galway Daily property Partially constructed country house skips half the work on building a home

This partially constructed country house halfway between Galway and Tuam is a perfect opportunity for a buyer who wants a home of their own making, one that also skips over several time consuming hurdles involved in securing planning permission, and early stage works.

O’Donnellan & Joyce Auctioneers are offering this four-bed detached house and large grounds at Knockdoemore, Lackagh for sale by live streamed auction at the end of this month.

This 2,600sq ft residence would make an incredible family home, and offers any owner the chance to shape it to their liking, going far beyond just decorating rooms which have already been laid out.

The property also comes with a 0.75 acre site for a family that wants more space than you can find with a city garden. This is also in a raw state that would make a great project for a homeowner with a green thumb to undertake.

Within easy driving distance of both Galway City and Tuam town, and close to local schools and amenities in Lackagh, this is an excellent location to get away from the urban bustle, while still having the benefits close at hand.

It will go on sale in O’Donnellan and Joyce’s next Nationwide Property Auction taking place on Friday, October 30 from 12pm, and live streaming on their website and social media channels.

The Advised Minimum Value of Knockdoemore, Lackagh is just €70,000, far from an exorbitant up front investment for a house that has already seen much of the leg work in its construction taken care of.

This auction features 13 properties across Galway up for grabs so far, along with more homes in Mayo, Sligo, Cavan, Westmeath, Roscommon, Meath, Kildare, Laois, and Dublin. 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only remote bidding will be allowed in this auction, and people wishing to take part must register to bid by 4pm on October 28.
