Boroondara is a spacious detached home refurbished and extended in 2017 to create a modern comfortable highly efficient family residence. Positioned on an elevated site overlooking the surrounding countryside, Galway City and with stunning views of Lough Corrib. Gortacleva is a semi-rural area within Galway City and only 2km from NUIG, UCHG with schools, services and amenities within easy reach.
Purchased by the current owners in 2017 they promptly employed an architect and set about modernizing, improving and opening up the property to allow light stream through and to take full advantage of the natural attributes of the elevated site with stunning views of Lough Corrib and surrounds. Extending to 311 sq.m (3346 sq.ft) improvements include installing glass panel doors, light wells, repositioning kitchen, new fittings throughout including fitted kitchen, new bathrooms, flooring and upgrading heating system and extensive work to improve the thermal efficiency of the residence. Insulation in the roof, attic, walls, new plumbing, thermostatically controlled radiators and new Firebird condenser boiler. In addition, the owners have added a thermodynamic hot water system with heat pump to supply consistent hot water for all showers and taps. The residence is fitted and finished to a very high standard with solid engineered Oak timber floors, solid wood doors, architraves and skirtings, high quality bathroom suites, fitted kitchen and wardrobes.
The gardens had the benefit of mature trees, boundary hedging, shrub beds but again were developed to include extended patios, landscaped areas and the addition of a large detached garage of approx. 40 sq.m with electronic roller doors. The rear garden has a 6 person jacuzzi hot tub form which one can enjoy the panoramic views over The Corrib, Galway City and surrounds.
