Four on the market: in Barna
Four properties with ample space currently on the market in Barna, close to Galway Bay.
Bóthar na Gréine, Forramoyle West
€800k Sherry FitzGerald Galway, (091) 569 123
There are good views of the sea from this architect-designed house on a cul-de-sac about half a kilometre from the coast in Barna. Unusually for a seaside property it also has a pampered-looking garden (0.86 of an acre) with ornamental trees, shrubs and a fruit and vegetable garden. Built in 1998, it's 3,767 sq ft on two floors, with four bedrooms upstairs (one en-suite) and a fifth en-suite bedroom downstairs. The ground floor also has a triple-aspect sitting room with patio doors, a dining room, a living room with sea views, an eat-in kitchen and a study.
Jasmar House, Loch Inse
€695k O’Donnellan & Joyce, (091) 564 212
In the townland of Loch Inse (or Loughinch), north of Barna, there's a monument to Fr Michael Griffin, the priest and nationalist sympathiser who was shot dead during the War of Independence in November 1920. His body was found in a shallow grave a week later. A couple of hundred metres away stands this detached bungalow with a sprawling floor area of 3,981 sq ft. The ground floor has a cinema room, lounge, games room, office, dining room and kitchen. There are two bedrooms upstairs and three downstairs (all en-suite). It's on just over half an acre with a patio and a polytunnel.
€475k DNG Martin O’Connor, (091) 866 708
At present, this bungalow about two-and-a-half kilometres north of Barna village has a floor area of 1,712 sq ft. However, there's another 800 sq ft or so of attic to be made use of, and you might fit another three rooms up there. There are four bedrooms at present, one of which has an en-suite shower. The main reception room is an oak-floored sitting room at the front of the house, with a marble fireplace. The kitchen and dining room are open-plan and there are double doors from there to the side garden. It's on just over half (0.57) of an acre, with the garden rising up from the back of the house, and there's also a 260 sq ft steel shed.
Overbrook House, Lacklea
€850k O’Donnellan & Joyce, (091) 564 212
There is nothing standing between Overbrook House and the sea, which is less than 200 metres away to the south. So from the back of the property you can look out over Galway Bay towards the Clare hills. It's a dormer bungalow measuring 2,803 sq ft with four bedrooms, all en-suite. Two are on the ground floor and two are upstairs, including the master which has a balcony overlooking the view. You reach the first floor from a staircase in the dining room. Also downstairs there's an open-plan kitchen and lounge, a conservatory and a study. The back garden consists of a raised patio and a long lawn lined with flowerbeds, as well as a detached garage.
