O’Donnellan & Joyce Auctioneers are pleased to offer to market this truly unique & elegant property in one of Galway City’s most sought after residential locations. Situated in the Dominican School on Taylor’s Hill, a well-known Galway City landmark, the building was originally completed in September 1901 as a boarding school for girls. The building offers beautiful finishings throughout having been designed in the French mansard-style with an imposing exterior & cast-iron balcony that encompasses the upper floor. Ornate spiral cast-iron down-pipes & decorative fixtures add to the quality detail & aesthetic. In 2005, the Dominican Order moved into their new building and the old boarding school building became obsolete. The deed maps from the 1800’s show that the property was built on what was originally known as Mount Eaton Estate and in keeping with its history, Mount Eaton House came to be. Mount Eaton House was extensively refurbished in 2008 by Purcell Construction & converted into 17 luxury apartments. Each apartment was completely upgraded, all with modern living standards & amenities whilst still retaining the charming style & features of the original building. Sympathetic to the original features & evidence to attention to detail, the original windows have been restored with timber sash which are true to the period design, whilst floor-levels were raised throughout to avail of spectacular views. The communal spaces are an excellent example of a blend of modern refurbishments & respect of the original building, as well as cleverly repurposed features such as the steel airing racks from the laundry now tastefully restored to disguise the letterboxes situated in the glass porch entrance hall. Accessible via secured doors & offering lift access as well as underground parking, Mount Eaton House communal hall features one of the most spectacular restoration highlights in the four-storey cantilever staircase & central atrium. The dark timber panelling & contrasting blue carpet, all lit by the large roof light, add a luxurious & warm ambience. No.11 Mount Eaton House is a first floor apartment with spacious accommodation of approximately 92 sq.m. The property consists of two large bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobe spaces & the main bedroom availing of its own en-suite, a main bathroom, large welcoming hall & an open-plan kitchen-living area. The quality & features throughout the building are evident in no.11 including large sash windows allowing plentiful natural light, exposed stone, deep walnut hardwood flooring and modern fittings including a white-gloss kitchen with central island feature. Externally, Mount Eaton House features landscaped gardens at the rear with a southern aspect, fountain, winding paths through the planting and is ideally positioned just off Taylor’s Hill Road. Taylor’s Hill has long been considered one of Galway City’s most sought after residential locations. The tree-lined road is within close proximity to Salthill village & promenade and offers easy access to Galway City Centre, UCHG & Galway University. No.11 Mount Eaton House is one of the most elegant properties on the market & a true testament to the preservation of the old & blending with the new. The period-style is rare for Galway City whilst the modernisation & plentiful space offers second-to-none standards perfect for today’s living.    The property will be perfect for a variety of purchasers given the quality condition, spacious accommodation, secured & well-maintained development, and ideal location. Viewing is highly recommended & guaranteed not to disappoint.
