Galway Bay is only 250 metres down the road from Rosewood, at Rockbarton North in Salthill. This means you'll never be more than five minutes' walk from a reckless plunge off Blackrock diving tower.

But if you're not quite intrepid enough for that, Rosewood is designed for other types of recreation as well.

The lower ground floor is entirely given over to entertainment, while allowing the occupants to keep an open mind as to what constitutes entertainment. You can be a sedentary dipsomaniac or a gym bunny - there's room for all sorts in this house.

There are two games rooms, so the cribbage crowd can be in one room and the pool sharks in another.

There's also a fitted bar, complete with bar stools, as well as a wine cellar.

And when you've overdone it along those lines, there's a gym with a Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room.

Built in the early 1980s, Rosewood has been completely refurbished by its current owners, including upgrading its energy efficiency with geothermal heating, so that is now has a BER of B2.

It's just as well, because the floor area is a whopping 6,378 sq ft on three floors.

The first floor has the five bedrooms, with three en-suite.

At entrance level there are two main reception rooms - a sitting room and a dining room, both with gas-fitted marble fireplaces - as well as a family room with a stove. The kitchen has a centre island with a breakfast bar and there are patio doors there to a balcony and terrace.

It's on a corner site, so there's a roomy garden which has been meticulously landscaped, with a lawn, shrubs and trees, a play area and a gazebo.

Rosewood is for sale with joint agents O'Donnellan and Joyce (091) 564 212 and Colleran Auctioneers (091) 562 293. The asking price is €1.6m.
