Trading Up: Ballincollig, Cork, €285,000

In spotless condition, freshly painted up in restful pale shades and emptied of furniture ready for a new arrival, is this three-storey, three-bed home at 141 Leslies Arch.

  • Size: 107 sq m (1,154sq ft)
  • Bathrooms: 3
  • Bedrooms: 3
  • BER: B3

It’s part of the ‘new’ Ballincollig, on the old barracks site, within a few minutes’ walk of Town Centre amenities, and its selling agent Norma Healy of Sherry FitzGerald describes it as elegant, and very well presented, albeit minus furnishings.

No 141 is set in a cul de sac section toward the back of the estate, with views from the front over sports facilities and fields in the Ballincollig Regional Park, whilst another ‘box-ticker’ for would-be buyers is the south-west facing rear garden aspect, ideal for after-work sitting out and barbecues, suggests Ms Healy.

She expects interest from a cross section of interest, including first time buyers, couples, and possibly even investors, given Ballincollig’s very strong employment base.

The mid-terraced townhouse has over 1,150 sq ft of accommodation, has its gloss unit kitchen/dining room to the front, right of the hall, guest WC, and the rear sitting room then spans the whole width of the house, about 16’, with French doors to the rear patio, next to a gas-insert fireplace.

Flooring is generally pale grey timber, with silvery grey carpets overhead in the three bedrooms.

The first floor is home to an en suite master bedroom, and a further bedroom, while the top, level has one more bedrooms, good sized, plus landing and bathroom.

VERDICT: A seamless, walk-in option, in a well-established setting backed up by a massive range of local amenities.
