Ballygowan, Abbey, Loughrea, Galway

€149,000 Energy Rating 1 bath72 m2


Unoccupied for many years this stone cottage was built in the early part of the 20th century following the infamous Ballygowan evictions of the 1880s and 1890s and stands on a site measuring 1.4 acres or thereabouts. Included in the sale is a stone built two storey barn with a slate roof. Ballygowan and the neighbouring villages of Abbey and Woodford in East Galway are steeped in history and the area has a fascinating heritage. The walls and roof of the cottage appear to be in good condition and PVC doors and windows were installed to protect the house from the elements. A small extension was added in the 1960s to accommodate a bathroom. Originally a three room cottage, all the internal walls and partitions have been removed leaving the interior of the cottage as an open space which will be an advantage when restoring the property. Total Floor Area of Cottage is 5.0m x 12.7m Rear Extension measures 3.0m x 4.2m The property is connected to a local group water scheme and a septic tank on site. The electricity has been disconnected but power is available close by. Fibre optic broadband is also available locally but has not been installed. This property is eligible for the vacant property refurbishment grant and proposed purchasers should familiarise themselves with the terms and conditions of this grant which can extend to €70,000. The cottage has extensive road frontage onto the L8786 and while it hasn’t been assigned an Eircode due to being derelict for so long, those interested can contact the agent for a nearby Eircode. The land around the cottage is dry and of very good quality and would be suitable for growing vegetables. The stone barn could also be converted into living accommodation if required and would be likely to be suitable for use as an air B&B. Located about 15 minutes from the busy town of Loughrea and less than an hour from Galway city this doer upper is likely to attract a lot of interest.
