Westridge is a handsome detached residence on a 0.9 acre site of mature developed gardens in a private setting at the end of a tree lined avenue on an elevated site. Originally built circa 1953 it benefited from total refurbishment in 1993 and has been well maintained and continually upgraded by the current owners since. The residence faces South and West and was designed to take full advantage of the stunning views it enjoys over Galway Golf Club and Galway Bay towards The Burren Hills. Extra large windows in all rooms facilitate the views and result in very bright airy spaces, many rooms are dual aspect. On the second floor of this home is a large lounge room with floor to ceiling windows and double doors onto balcony, there are panoramic views from this room which is an oasis of relaxation and peace. High ceiling and bright spacious rooms are a feature of this home.
The house has quality finishes and fittings throughout with solid timber and tile floors, Maple fitted kitchen and shelving, solid timber stairwell, zoned central heating and central vacuum system. Accommodation is extensive with four reception rooms, five bedrooms four of which are en suite, two large external balconies on first floor including one off the main bedroom. Externally the grounds are mature and established with well defined boundaries. There is a large double detached garage with first floor storage room currently used as office or could be used as mews (subject to planning permission). Westridge has acted as a happy family home for the current owners who have now reluctantly decided its time to downsize and pass it on to new owners to enjoy all it offers.
Kingston is a prime Galway City location beside Taylors Hill and Salthill. There is a host of leading primary and secondary schools within minutes walk of this home. Sporting amenities include Galway Gold Club, Galway Tennis Club, Salthill/Knocknacarra GAA Club, Pearse Stadium, numerous gyms and leisure centres and Salthill Promenade at the end of Threadneedle Road. The area is mature, established and would be considered a prime Galway City location.
