Put down some roots in these buds of suburbia

BACK to back, these houses at the Daffodil Fields at Poulavone, Ballincollig, offer a safe playing space for children, says Michael Downey of ERA Downey McCarthy Murphy.

Both are detached, four bedroomed houses and are at the back of the estate, which means there is less passing traffic for children.

The estate was once an open field upon which a host of golden daffodils appeared each year, hence the name.

Close to the Poulavone roundabout and the interchange to the Ballincollig bypass, this is a very handy location for commuters and schools are a walk away.

Built within the past eight years, to a design by Richard Rainey, Daffodil Fields is a attractive collection of houses running down to the banks of the Lee.

Houses 26 and 34 carry a guide price of €460,000 and it's all down to taste for viewers as both properties have a similar layout.

This includes a sitting room, living room, kitchen, utility, and four bedrooms with master en suite.

Gardens are good and fully walled-in at the back and to the front. Both houses have ample parking, and they are both corner sites, which gives them a little bit more garden than their neighbours.

Views are also good with the houses looking out over the hills and green fields of the Lee Valley.

As an added bonus, the newly opened Ballincollig shopping centre is within a five minutes’ drive, which means no heavy traffic to negotiate for new owners.
