Property Description



Location! Location! Location!

If you’re looking for a very special property, then look no further than Number 5, Sylvan Drive. Built in 1972 by O’ Malley Construction, this wonderful family home has been meticulously maintained over the years and is perfectly positioned within Fairlands Park, a well laid-out development of detached homes. There is ample street parking and a large green area with trees and seating.

This beautifully appointed residence comprises a large entrance porch, entrance hall, kitchen/dining room, living room, study/bedroom and downstairs shower room. This room, because of its proximity to the shower room, can easily be converted into a sixth bedroom.

There are four bedrooms on the first floor together with the main shower room. To the rear of the house, a later extension added a self-contained one-bedroom apartment with kitchen/dining room and shower room. The apartment can be easily accessed through the main house or via the side entrance. A great space for extra guests or as a separate let.

Outside there is parking for two cars on the front driveway and the rear garden is in lawn, with planted shrubs and mature trees. Heating is oil fired with double glazing throughout, making this fine home very comfortable.

In excellent condition throughout. This superb home is very well located and only a short stroll to the National University of Galway and the University Hospital and 2.5km to Eyre Square in the city centre. If you enjoy fitness pursuits, leisure facilities at the Kingfisher NUIG are just 12 mins walk away as is Dangan Sportsground. Nearby there are lovely walking trails on the banks of the River Corrib. The N59 is close too and allows for easy access to the beautiful seaside towns and villages of Connemara. For your grocery essentials, Dunne’s stores and Aldi are the local supermarkets.

Number 5, Sylvan Drive has massive potential and is definitely worth viewing.   Call Siobhra Hennessy or Colm O’Donnellan at O’Donnellan & Joyce for viewing details 091 564 212.
