€3.5 million home on Rusheen Bay is Galway’s most expensive property

Galway daily business Home in Barna on sale for €3.5 million is Galway's most expensive property

A luxurious, coastal home resting on the shores of Rusheeen Bay is the most expensive property on sale in Galway right now with its €3.5 million price tag.

Lough Rusheen House out in Barna is a perfect hideaway from the bustle of local estates, overlooking the waters that were used for Rusheen Bay Windsurfing School for so many years.

This five-bedroom, family home has plenty of open space, with open, light-filled rooms that stretch over 4,919 sq. ft of floor space.

In the main house solid-wood, golden, parquet paneling covers the floors.

The vast conjoined kitchen and dining room is filled with light from the large windows and patio doors, so you just can’t escape from that view.

A separate living room and dining area is demarcated by fold out doors that can be pulled back to create a warm space for all the family.

While a more formal drawing room with a large, marble fireplace offers a quieter escape.

Originally the house was built on the site of the old Rusheen riding stables, until later owners purchased it and expanded it into a modern estate.

A separate guest house connects to the main house at the ground floor level through a glass walkway.

Guests will be spoiled with a spacious kitchen and dining room, and beautifully appointed upstairs living room, bedroom, and sauna complete with their own coastal views.

Wait a second, did I read that right? A guest sauna? Well I’ll be a poverty-stricken-millennial.

Leave your friends and family eternally resentful that their own home can’t compare to your guest house.

This home provides a sanctuary in the country just minutes away from Galway city with 23.5 acres of private garden and grounds.

The grounds are laid out in a mixture of sheltered gardens, mature planting, a huge open back garden, and a large paddock.

A fully-lit driveway leads right down to the water’s edge, where summer evenings can be spent looking out over the sea.

Or you could make use of the special barbeque area with friends or take a stroll through the walkways that weave through the grounds.

The waterfront gardens are greened out by 12,000 plants on the grounds, and almost 2,000 trees, that were installed by a landscaper.

The sale of this small estate with it facial-tic inducing price tag is being handled by agents Sherry Fitzgerald.
