Four-bedroom Victorian terraced house for sale in Galway for €1,225,000
26th Mar 2021
One of Galway City's most desirable period addresses, this terraced house for sale boasts period features, glorious gardens and a self-contained coach house.
One of the only Victorian-style residential terraces in Galway city, The Crescent is a much sought-after location, just a few minutes walk from the main shopping streets, the sea and surrounded by a number of excellent primary and secondary schools.
Number six of the ten-house terrace is currently on the market for €1.225 million. Built in 1837, it was originally a seafront home, though land reclamations mean it’s now a few minutes walk to the shores of Galway Bay.
There’s pedestrian access from the main gate, a path through the long, mature garden to the front door, though there’s also vehicular access from the rear. Through the olive front door leads you into a black and white tiled hallway. Double-fronted, there is a large dining room to the left, with a white stone fireplace as a large sash window overlooking the leafy front garden.
To the left is the kitchen / breakfast room that runs the full length of the original house. It boasts the original terracotta tiles and timber flooring, with a simple parallel kitchen running down to the rear window, while the breakfast area has a sunny window seat.
Beyond these principle rooms, there’s a shower room next to the stairs and a substantial extension built into the back garden. On the entrance level, it contains the first of four bedrooms, this one ensuite, and a utility.
On the first floor, are three more bedrooms and a large family bathroom with a freestanding tub, but most interestingly the front part of this floor is given over to a living room and study that runs the width of the house. Featuring a fireplace and lots of light thanks to the large, traditional sash windows, it’s a sunny space, serene space.
As well as the very private front garden, the rear garden has been split up into sections, including a patio area, a grassy area and lots of mature planting, as well as parking.
There’s also a self-contained coach house that has already been converted into a one-bedroom guest house, with a double-height living area, kitchen and a cosy double bedroom on the mezzanine level.
