DescriptionThis delightful bungalow in Montiagh South is set on a mature site of 0.8 acres, just 2km from Claregalway village. It was constructed in the late 1940s and later extended in 2008. The accommodation extends to 134.46 sqm and comprises of four bedrooms, one bathroom, kitchen and dining room and two reception rooms. There are three out buildings, originally cow sheds, which offer great storage space and where the oil boiler and oil tank are located. These have the potential for conversion subject to planning permission.
The extension comprises of a new kitchen and sitting room/sun room which are modern, bright and very spacious. The kitchen has a solid wood floor and solid wood kitchen cabinets with a combination of granite and solid wood worktops and includes an integrated dishwasher, integrated fridge freezer, eye level double oven, electric hob, washing machine and dryer and a pull-out larder. The sitting room/sun room has an open fireplace, solid wood flooring and extensive glazing. A Stira stairs allows access to a floored attic space offering ample storage space.
The original part of the house comprises of four bedrooms, a sitting room with wood burning stove and a single bathroom which was converted to a modern, fully tiled wet room.
Sliding doors from the kitchen lead to a beautifully matured garden which still retains the original stone boundary walls. A gated tarmac driveway leads to the rear and side of the property and a gated pathway leads to the main entrance door. A solar panel on the roof provides hot water and otherwise the heating is oil fired central heating with the option of an open fire in each of the bedrooms, three chimneys of which have been temporarily closed off. All windows are double glazed, PVC and the property has achieved a D1 energy rating.
Whilst some improvements may be necessary to further modernise and increase the energy efficiency of this family home, it nevertheless offers spacious accommodation on a mature site, within a close-knit community, with local schools and services nearby and is a mere fifteen minute commute to Galway city. Viewing is highly recommended.
