Property Overview

Spencer Auctioneers in partnership with The Connacht Property Auction

Offered at bids over €65,000

A deceptively spacious 5 bed detached two storey family home with an attractive range of outbuildings which offer future development all set on a mature site of 2.5 acres.

The property is of stone construction with a rendered exterior under a slated roof and the main property was constructed in the 1900’s. More recently a single storey extension has been put on the rear and the side which has a flat roof and this is leaking in certain places. The property has single glazed windows and double glazed doors throughout and offers a great opportunity to renovate and extend this lovely family home. With the benefit of the lands and the outbuildings the auctioneers believe this could be transformed into a fabulous family home and small holding.

BER G / BER Nu. 113008247

From Maam Cross proceed west along the N59 for approximately 4.5miles passing the turning to Shannakeela on your right hand side and the property will be found on the right hand side being the third building on the right marked by our “For Sale” board.

To the side of the property there is a detached building with the original structure being 31 feet in length by 12’9 in depth. This is split into two separate rooms downstairs but one room to the first floor. To the side of this there is an attached garage which measures 16’ x 19’10 with concrete walls and corrugated roof.

The lands are mostly set to the rear and extend to circa 2.5 acres of mixed quality grazing with an abundance of natural water and the boundaries are clearly defined. There are a range of mature trees surrounding the property which add to its natural charm. The boundaries are of post and wire fencing and to the front they are created by the main N59.

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.
