Property Overview

The Connacht Property Auction in partnership with Spencer Auctioneers

Offered at bids over €330,000.

A beautifully appointed 4 bedroom detached family home set on a spacious site of 0.64 acres. The property constructed circa 2007 provides circa 346 square meters of accommodation in the main property and a further 128 square meters situated within the detached chalet to the rear.

Constructed in 2007, this fabulous family home is of block construction with a rendered exterior which has been recently redecorated and set under a slate roof. The property has black UPVC wood effect windows throughout the main residence and chalet, oil fired central heating in the main residence and electric heating in the chalet. The property is fully enclosed by traditional stone wall boundaries and gated entrances and partially split by a small baureen road. The main house has been beautifully finished and is in excellent condition throughout. The accommodation, which has a lovely flow to it, comprises of a inner hall, living room, kitchen / dining room, utility room and cloakroom. There are two further double bedrooms and family bathroom. To the first floor there are two spacious double bedrooms, both with en suite and master benefiting from walk in wardrobe. The property was designed to be highly efficient for the present owners and benefits from solar heating with a capacity of circa 500 liters which was designed for 6 members in the family and also has hard wired smoke alarms, hard wired fire security lighting along with alarm wiring (although not installed) throughout the property.

The chalet was constructed at a similar time to the main house and has been classed as an unauthorized development by Galway County Council in 2013 under enforcement No. EN13/166. Originally under application 06/2658 Galway County Council granted consent for a detached garage which was constructed. This was then converted into a habitable dwelling which Galway County Council refused planning for this on the grounds that it should not have been used as residential accommodation. A retention application which involves the creation of a link thus bringing the space into the main dwelling house has been granted and approved under application 1572 and is valid until May 2020 (please see details attached).

OUTSIDE: The main property to the east and south of the main house there is an enclosed garden laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees and shrubs, enclosed by traditional stone wall boundary with an additional vegetable plot. There is a small patio area outside the kitchen/dining room and there is ample parking to the front and side of the property. To the rear of the chalet there is an additional enclosed garden which is separated from the main dwelling house by a post and wire fence. To the front of the property there is a gated entrance with ample parking to the front and side and there is an additional private entrance currently separated for the chalet. To the left of the house, there is a small paddock which is included in the sale but left to open grazing. Future planting / or gardening could be availed of in this area.

DIRECTIONS: Proceed out of Spiddal for 200 meters west towards Inverin and turn right marked by our "For Sale" board. Proceed up this road for 400 meters and the property will be found on the left hand side marked by our for sale board.

Building Energy Rating (BERs)

Building Energy Ratings (BERs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an BER. BERs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
