Open viewings of spacious semi in Ballincollig set to spur interest




It’s not often you find a three-bed semi-detached with three double bedrooms, but this former showhouse does, says Trish Dromey.

More spacious and more stylish than the average three-bed semi, 23 The Crescent, Highfield Park in Ballincollig is a former showhouse with over 1,200 sq ft of living space.

It’s eight years old and has been finished to a high standard, with solar panels and a B1 energy rating, says John O’Mahony of J& M O’Mahony OM2 auctioneers, quoting an asking price of €290,000.

He says the owners, who have just bought a house on an acre-and-a-half site from him, had been upgrading this property in recent years with a view to staying there.

Behind the front bay window is a walnut-floored sitting room which has neutral modern decor and a cream fireplace with an insert stove. 

At the rear, there is a cream kitchen with timber worktops and one wallpapered in red and gold patterned wallpaper in the dining space. The ground floor has a utility room and a guest WC at the rear.

The first floor has a recently refurbished bathroom and three double bedrooms with built-ins, one with an en suite.

The property has a paved driveway at the front, with two parking spaces and a lawned garden with a patio as well as colourful flowerpots and raised planter boxes at the rear.

The Crescent estate is located around 2km from the town centre. Mr O’Mahony expects the property to attract very good interest, and has scheduled two open viewings.

“Three-bed semis with three double bedrooms are rare,’’ he adds.
