This country-style home in Taylor’s Hill, Galway is on the market for €1,500,000


Taylor’s Hill is a Galway suburb located to the west of the city centre, north of Salthill and south of Shantalla. Well-serviced by buses and home to a number of schools and sports facilities, the area is a favourable residential hub for families.

One such family property is St Michaels, a restored period home measuring 340 square metres.

Presented by estate agents at Sherry Fitzgerald, the house boasts well-proportioned rooms and plenty of country character.

The entrance hall is bright and spacious with panelled walls, a feature staircase and wood flooring. It’s a welcoming space, with the current owners adding warmth via a patterned rug and elegant light fixtures.

To the right of the entrance hallway is a beautiful drawing-room with large sash windows, allowing for lots of natural light. There is also a feature marble fireplace, a chandelier and solid timber flooring, making the room a beautiful spot for entertaining.

This drawing room is also a comfortable space to relax in, with enough room for two large sofas, as well as a TV point.

The same can be said about the family room to the left of the hallway, which is finished with a solid wood-burning stove. Both the drawing room and family room are both dual-aspect, with picturesque views over the property’s private gardens.

Elsewhere, the country-style kitchen is the heart of this Galway home. With an AGA range cooker and tiled splashback, solid timber units, a double fridge and tiled flooring, the kitchen is a warm, inviting space. What’s more, a separate utility room houses a washer/dryer.

There is also a dining room here, which experts at Sherry Fitzgerald say could be transformed into a downstairs guest bedroom (an interesting thought, considering there is an ensuite with double doors leading to the garden).

Upstairs

The first floor of this home in Taylor’s Hill has five spacious bedrooms.

With high ceilings and an ensuite bathroom, the master suite is both spacious and comfortable. It also boasts built-in wardrobes for storage and large sash windows.

Two of the additional bedrooms have carpeted floors (which new owners may want to update), while a fourth bedroom has dark wooden floorboards.

The main bathroom has a cast-iron bath, wash-hand basin, WC, fitted mirror, bidet, shower, gable-end sash windows and partly-panelled walls.

Meanwhile, the ensuite has a jacuzzi bath, walk-in shower, double sinks, vanity units, WC, and a heated towel rail.

Outside

By purchasing St Michaels, the new owners will also take on its well-maintained grounds. Features include a double-width stone driveway, raised flower beds and Liscannor walkways surrounding the house.

Not only can the mature gardens be admired from all rooms within the property, but the Liscannor paved patio areas are perfect for al fresco dining too.

What’s more, a stone coach house is located on the grounds and can be converted into a mews house (subject to planning from Galway City Council).

The coach house, which is currently being used for storage, measures 4.2 metres x 6.6 metres, with a ceiling height of 4.3 metres.

St Michaels in Taylor’s Hill, Galway is on the market with Sherry Fitzgerald for €1,500,000.
