Trading Up: Ballincollig, Cork €335,000

NEW owners of No 14, Aylesbury, can decide to keep a rather fine master bedroom suite as it is, or convert the dressing room next to it back to a fourth bedroom.

Right now, the two first-floor, rear-facing rooms at No 14 are interlinked with access to a shower room en suite and a walk-in wardrobe, with two further bedrooms to the front, and a bathroom to the side.

At ground level, too, there are options: right now, there’s a playroom to one side in a garage conversion, and interlinked reception rooms to the left, running front to back, with a separate kitchen/diner, with rear garden access currently only via the kitchen.

Selling agent, Norma Healy, of Sherry FitzGerald prices it at €355,000 and she says the house has been well-kept, while the plain, lawned back garden, with concrete boundary fencing, has a small, cute, timber, chalet-style shed for storage, or it can be used as an imaginative garden playhouse for children.

Aylsbury, which is on the western fringes of Ballincollig and was built about 30 years ago, has matured very nicely, with easy access to the bypass road now, too.

Much care has been lavished on the inside, says Ms Healy. 

VERDICT: A bit of garden planting would give No 14 an extra lift.
