DescriptionNo. 1A Dr Mannix Road, is a substantial 6 bed detached family home, occupying a large 0.244 acre site with a south westerly aspect in the heart of Salthill. The property offers an abundance of space, scope and opportunity both inside and out and is located in one of Galway's most established, sought after residential areas.
Taunus is a substantial residence with large, bright, well-proportioned rooms, and at this stage of its life cycle will benefit from modernisation and upgrading. The property has remained in the current family ownership since the day it was built in 1965. The accommodation, which extends to 192.6 sq.m, includes sitting room, living room, kitchen/dining, utility, study and wc on the ground floor, while upstairs there are six bedrooms and a main bathroom. In 2008 a basement was extended and converted into a one bedroomed apartment with separate access to the main house, measuring c.80 sq.m (861 sq.ft.).
1A has both a vehicular and pedestrian entrance off Doctor Mannix Road and has a very large south west facing rear garden. It benefits from mature trees and shrubs; it offers a wonderful opportunity to further develop the residence.
The residence is well positioned next to Salthill/Knocknacarra GAA grounds, across from the Galway Tennis Club, Salerno Secondary School & St. Enda's College, while both the Salthill Promenade and Galway Golf Club are less than 1km away.
A property of this size, on such a large site with the scope to redesign in the heart of Salthill is such a rare find in todays' market.
On street parking to the front and off-street parking to the side. There is a block wall boundary to the front with a pedestrian gate leading to the front door. Double gates provide a vehicular entrance to the right hand side which leads to the side and rear of the house. A tarmacadam drive leads you to the back of the house and to the entrance of the apartment. The rear garden faces south and so enjoys the sun all day, the gardens are overgrown and contain tall mature trees and hedging with a timber shed for storage. The boundaries are defined by a mixture of stone walls and timber steaks with fencing. There is a boiler house to the left hand side of the property.
