AS 106 acres of Lee Fields land and a period home at Inchigaggin Lane comes for sale this week guiding €2.2m via Lisney, here’s a more affordable local option, guided at just 10% of that big, adjacent offer.

Likely to garner good attention is No 5 The Orchard on Inchigaggin Lane, between the Model Farm Road and Carrigrohane Straight Road. Viewers will be attracted by the €220,000 asking price, as well as the fact that this is an attractive redbrick mews style end of terrace property, in a modern gated development.

Selling agents Cahalane Skuse say the two-bed 900 sq ft property which was built in the early 2000s has been used as a rental and is in good condition. “ It’s well located in a semi rural setting but is within a short drive from shops, schools and colleges,’’ says auctioneer Niall Cahalane.

Ground-floor accommodation includes a spacious timber floored living dining room (20’ by 17’) with a timber fireplace , and at the rear, a kitchen at the rear with Shaker style units and a breakfast counter. Upstairs are a bathroom and two timber-floored bedrooms, one with an en suite.

A patio door at the front of the living room leads to a 17 ft long private patio area enclosed behind a redbrick wall.

Sales in the Orchard development seem to be rare: No 11 sold for €230,00 in January 2015 while No 3 sold for €173,000 in July 2015.
