About the property

O’Donnellan & Joyce Auctioneers are pleased to offer to market this truly 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 amd 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 and converted into 17 luxury apartments.

Each apartment was completely upgraded, all with modern living standards and amenities whilst still retaining the charming style and features of the original building.

Sympathetic to the original features and 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 and 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 and 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 and central atrium. The dark timber panelling and contrasting blue carpet, all lit by the large roof light, add a luxurious and warm ambience.

No.16 Mount Eaton House is a split-level upper floor apartment that contains views of Taylors Hill Road & to the side elevation of Galway Bay.

The property consists of two large bedrooms, one with ensuite and both with fitted wardrobe spaces, & a main bathroom, large welcoming hall and a spacious living area with adjacent kitchen.

The quality & features throughout the building are evident in no. 16 including large sash windows allowing plentiful natural light, exposed stone, deep walnut hardwood flooring and modern fittings.

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.

As with each apartment in the development, no.16 avails of a separate storage in the lower ground floor ideal for bicycles & long-term storage.

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 and promenade and offers easy access to Galway City Centre, Galway University and the college hospital.

No.16 Mount Eaton House is one of the most elegant properties on the market and a true testament to the preservation of the old and blending with the new.

The period-style is rare for Galway City whilst the modernisation and 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 and well-maintained development, and an ideal location.

Viewing is highly recommended and guaranteed not to disappoint.
