Placenames regularly tie in with the local topography and so it is that Daffodil Fields in Ballincollig was once — you’ve guessed — a daffodil field.
That changed when the builders moved in in the 1990s and what you have now is an estate of about 60 houses that generally sell well. The Property Price Register shows No 27 sold in 2018 for €465,000 and No 25 sold for €470,000. The latest offering, No 29, on the market since last summer, comes with a price tag of €440,000.
Upgraded, having previously been rented, the property has a new kitchen, new carpets and has been re-painted, leaving it in very good nick. “It’s in tip-top condition, finished to a very high standard,” says selling agent Frank Walsh of O’Mahony Walsh.
Nestled away in a quiet cul-de-sac with scenic views over the Lee Valley, Mr Walsh describes No 29 as “a superb opportunity to acquire an attractive four-bedroom detached property”.
A key feature is the walled-in south facing rear garden, surrounded by trees and mature shrubbery, with plenty of privacy.
“It’s the perfect playground for children to enjoy the summer sunshine, or indeed Alfresco dining,” Mr Walsh says.
More play space is available via a large green area within Daffodil Fields and of course nearby is the enormous outdoor space that is Ballincollig Regional Park, with its many constituent parts, not least playing pitches, a fairy trail, riverside walks, a playground, basketball court, skate park and the delicious treats of Café Chico mobile coffee stall, now a bit of fixture.
Accommodation downstairs includes that cream oak kitchen with sliding door to the back garden, a dining room, sitting room, a utility and WC.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is ensuite.
Daffodil Fields, is on the eastern side of Ballincollig Town just minutes’ drive from the South Link Road.
Ready to bloom under new owners.
