This modern family home with stunning views of Galway Bay is on the market for €2.9 million

This modern family home with stunning views of Galway Bay is on the market for €2.9 million

Taking full advantage of the spectacular views and amazing light, this Galway property sits within walking distance of the glorious Irish coastline.

Elevated on a walled site overlooking both Galway Bay and the nearby Clare Hills, this gorgeous property in Barna Village is privy to some of the west coast’s best views. 

Walk in the gated entrance and a brick pathway, lined with trees and lush hedgerows for privacy, guides the way to the front of the house. Inside, the main door opens onto a bright and spacious hallway with an upstairs balcony allowing for more light to stream into the area. 

A large living room offers a cosy area for family and friends to catch up, with uninterrupted views of the sea courtesy of three big windows. 

The kitchen is open plan, with tiled flooring for ease of access and a fireplace to one side of the room. An island counter stands in the centre of the room, with several outlets for necessities such as kettles and toasters to be plugged into. A dining table and chairs are tucked away in one corner with ample storage in the form of many wooden-front cabinets. 

A lounge area can be found just off the kitchen, with another fireplace for warmth. An L-shaped couch takes pride of place in this room – the perfect spot to spend a lazy duvet day in front of the TV. 

Three of the five bedrooms – including the master bedroom – are located on the ground floor. 

Elsewhere, to the rear of the house lies an extensive conservatory with three sets of double doors that lead onto the patio. Outside, the property benefits from magnificent manicured gardens with plenty of off-street parking (enough to accommodate approximately 10 cares). 

Two ensuite bedrooms can be found upstairs, both with walk-in wardrobes and plenty of storage space. 

Also included in the sale is a one-bedroom annex, a detached garage with office space and an electric gated entrance. 

Closely located to a host of local amenities, there are any number of shops, restaurants and bars nearby.

Take a full tour of the house, below.
