SOLD PRIOR TO AUCTION

FOR SALE BY AUCTION AT MENLO PARK HOTEL, TERRYLAND, GALWAY AT 3.30PM ON FRIDAY 7TH DECEMBER, 2012

RESERVE PRICE WILL NOT EXCEED 70,000

Substantial three storey purpose built apartment block of around 4,000 square feet with ample parking to the rear. The apartments consist of four one bedroom apartments and a 2 bedroom top floor apartment. Situated on the banks of the Owenriff River, this building could provide excellent alternative business opportunities subject to necessary planning consents or continue to be used for long or short term lettings.

The property is set on the outskirts of Oughterard village with views over the Owenriff River and within 5 minutes level walk of the village. The property was built in approximately 1950 of concrete block construction with a rendered exterior under a tiled roof. To all first and second floor apartments there are external fire escapes. To the rear there is a two storey extension with a flat roof above. There is double glazing throughout and each apartment is independently metered for electricity. All five apartments have been rented out in the past, but all come with vacant possession. The property is ideally situated for continuation of residential lettings or possible alterations to the layout to provide alternative business opportunities considering its location to the river and village.

Oughterard is a charming village on the shores of Lough Corrib - the internationally renowned wild brown trout fishery. Known as the gateway to Connemara, Oughterard is well known for its range of shops, pubs and hotels which cater for the large numbers of visitors who come to take advantage of the fishing, walking, boating and other leisure activities for which this village is justly famous. Golf is available at the 18 hole Oughterard golf course, set in natural parkland and there are six other golf courses within an hour's drive.

The property is 17 miles from the regional capital of the West, Galway City, with its mainline road, rail and air connections and extensive and substantial cultural, commercial and retail facilities. Shannon and Knock Airports are some 1.5 hours from the property. Galway Airport is just 40 minutes away with connections to Dublin, Waterford, Luton, Manchester, Edinburgh, and L'Orient.
