New Quay Real Estate is delighted to bring to the market this resplendent mansion with detached garage presented in immaculate condition set in the majestic Burren foothills just a stones throw from the Wild Atlantic Way and the beautiful coastal village of Ballyvaughan. This formidable residence sits on approximately 1 acre of manicured tree-lined grounds with fantastic views of Cappanawalla mountain and boasts seven bedrooms all ensuite and luxury accommodation finished to the highest of standards. One enters the property through a large porch just shy of 50 square feet with two full height side-light windows flooding the space with natural light offering a prelude to the calibre of construction inside. Greeting you is a grand hallway with substantial ceiling height, recessed spot lighting, neutral colour scheme and carpets and a beautiful solid wood staircase along with lounging space and radiator cabinets adding to the tasteful décor. This is further complimented by a side window in addition to the glazed internal door also with full height side-light windows giving the space a bright and airy ambiance. To the left of the hallway is the first of the very generous living spaces and comprises a large sitting room and adjoining sunroom. The space floods with natural light, has recessed spot lighting and the provision for an open fire or stove. The sheer size of the space allows for multiple furniture and suite options. Adjoining the sitting room through French doors is a substantial dining room with two large triple windows affording beautiful views onto the side and back gardens. A solid oak sixteen-seater dining table is the central focal point and while this should be well beyond the needs of most the abundance of circulation space would actually allow seating for greater numbers without compromising access. The dining room in turn links to the fabulous kitchen and breakfast room with lots of natural light through three windows and the glazed door to the rear conservatory offering fantastic garden and mountain views. The multiple counterspace fitted kitchen comes complete with bespoke cream units, a Fisher and Paykel five ring gas hob, two integrated Zanussi grill ovens, an integrated Bosch dishwasher, incorporated Candy microwave oven, larder and swivel corner storage, kitchen island with built-in storage and a breakfast bar. A large dedicated breakfast area with solid wood table and bench seats meets the requirement of a dining room in its own right with lots of additional space for a living area if so required. Recessed spot and strip lighting have been included with ceramic tiling throughout. The rear conservatory faces out onto a lush private back garden with views past the trees to the Burren mountains behind. This provides yet another substantial living space and comes with multiple seating options and a vaulted tongue and groove panelled ceiling with integrated dimmable spot lighting. The first of the seven bedrooms is located on the ground floor just off the right of the hallway and presents a large double in fabulous décor with fantastic light and views out onto the front garden. The ensuite has a large electric shower, both front and side windows and has the space provided to join to the side entrance/kitchen if so required. The first floor comprises six well laid out bedrooms configured as three triples, one double, one twin and a single all ensuite with electric showers and full baths in the larger four. Light, space, function and comfort have been given meticulous consideration in their design and must be seen to be appreciated. The first-floor landing has two feature light wells with Velux windows which give a natural spotlight effect. Four additional skylights and an overall elevated eaves height have been included in the construction stage for the conversion of the vast attic area SPP should anyone wish to add more living space to this already extensive home. Given the extent of the accommodation the property is currently let as a guest house proving to be extremely lucrative and enjoying full occupancy during the season. Further details are available on request to parties with a serious interest. The layout would also be conducive to a live-in scenario with the downstairs bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, breakfast/dining area and conservatory/living room for sole use of the proprietor and the large sitting room and sun room, dedicated dining room and six bedrooms upstairs designated for guests with clear separation and privacy between the two zones. The stand-alone detached garage incorporates the boiler house, large utility space with washing machines and dryers and plenty of additional counter and storage space. Ballyvaughan is a beautiful coastal village on the Wild Atlantic Way nestled between the cascading Burren mountains, valleys of green fields and hazelwood and Galway Bay and truly is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The village has a number of great hotels, guesthouses, pubs, shops and restaurants very popular with locals and visitors alike. Monks fresh seafood restaurant is world famous and O'Lochlainns quintessential traditional Irish whiskey bar is an absolute must. The weekly farmers market is well known and very popular for its organic and sustainable food all produced locally. The area is also famous for its archaeology being littered with megalithic tombs and monuments adding to the mystique of the landscape. It is also mecca for walkers, hikers, cyclists, fishing and water-sport enthusiasts and for anyone with a love for breath-taking landscapes and the ocean.
