‘Ailin’ is an outstanding detached family home extending to circa 5,700 square feet located in the prestigious Bushypark, minutes from Galway City centre.
The property is ideally positioned and integrated into an elevated site of cicra one acre with expansive views of Galway City and Lough Corrib.
Built in 2002 it is of contemporary open plan architectural design with exacting quality and presented in pristine decorative order with ample space that is ideal for entertaining.
Auctioneers O’Donnellan & Joyce advise that this “tremendous family home is completely adaptable to all modern lifestyles and needs”.
Accommodation includes a large entrance hallway, well designed living spaces with marble and limestone flooring and double height ceilings as standard. There is a beautiful reception room with views onto Lough Corrib opening to a kitchen and breakfast area.
Off the kitchen is a TV family room with raised ceiling and south and east facing windows with views over the city and direct access to exterior decks.
A large dining room opens from the kitchen area with more magnificent views and an additional fully fitted pantry room. To round off the living space on the ground floor there is a library and study room with an extensive bookcase and lighting.
Down the hallway, there is a WC, oak fitted cloakroom and a separate laundry room, opening to an inner hallway with cathedral ceilings and gallery that brings you through to all the bedrooms.
Each of the spacious bedrooms come beautifully appointed with smartly designed en-suites with Philippe Starck sanitary ware and Hansgrohe fittings and are fitted with custom designed oak wardrobes and solid oak flooring in each bedroom. Each bedroom has its own unique views of gardens, city or lake.
Downstairs there is a gym room with full bathroom and steam shower, a large wine cellar or cold room leading to a huge multi-function room that may be used as a family room, play room, teenager room, media or cinema room equipped with wiring for surround sound, and plumbing for wet bar or mini kitchen. This area has direct access to the front parking forecourt. Also on this level there is a two-car garage with electric roller door.
The house is set into approximately one acre surrounded by natural granite walling with extensive professionally landscaped gardens designed by Diarmuid Gavin Designs. There are decks and wrap around granite patios to the south and east, Achill quartz walls and steps and lush planting with low voltage lighting. To the front there is an elevated expansive view deck over the gardens, Lough Corrib and beyond. There are two very large mature trees retained on the site. There is also parking for six-eight cars, electric gates and intercom.
“‘Ailin’ is one of the most exquisite family homes ever to come to the market in Galway and bears all the hallmarks of a property that oozes class and taste and comprises so many extra features not often found that one can hardly assess what will be missed by not viewing it,” advise auctioneers O’Donnellan & Joyce.
