Billed as a ‘redesigned home’ is 81 Leslies Arch, in the Old Quarter section of O’Flynn Construction’s Ballincollig Town Centre, and as viewers today at an 11am open viewing might see, it’s all been freshened up to be a walk-in job for new occupants.

The four-bed No 81 runs to more than 1,700 sq ft over three levels, and many home hunters will be familiar with the layout, which includes a mid level living room and bedrooms spread over the top two floors — it became quite popular in the mid 2000s.

This comes to market assertively priced at €430,000, and even though the Price Register shows dozens of Leslies Arch sales since 2010, none appear to have gone over €400,000 in sales: two sold in 2016, for €380,000 and for €388,750.

Selling agent Norma Healy of Sherry FitzGerald says this home is in pristine order and tastefully decorated, has a sunny, walled-in back garden and “is a little different to most out there so viewing is the only way to fully appreciate what it has to offer.”

It has three top floor bedrooms, plus main bathroom, mid-level master bedroom with en suite, across a landing from a living room and at ground there’s a kitchen to the front, linking to a dining and family space, with guest WC, pantry and utility fore and aft.

VERDICT: Taking Leslies Arch prices to a higher level.
