Your heart with pleasure fills where the land once danced with daffodils

THE memory of a host of golden daffodils on the grounds of Poulavone House, Ballincollig, is now just that and in their place is a cluster of houses called, appropriately enough, Daffodil Fields.

Tastefully designed by architect Richard Rainey, these detached houses are trading-up material for Ballincollig and the western suburbs and always see strong interest when they come on the market.

Poised to become one of the best suburban locations when the new town centre opens in the autumn, Ballincollig has already benefited hugely from the new bypass, which connects it to all areas on the ring road system.

And Daffodil Fields, which used to see lines of traffic at its entrance, has also had a bypass bonus, making access easier to the city and the village. Number 8 Daffodil Fields, which is newly up for sale with auctioneer Terence O’Leary of Property Partners O’Mahony Walsh, is on offer at €440,000, and comes in superb condition with the benefit of a conservatory at the back.

Bounded by trees and not overlooked, the sun travels around the house all day, making number 8 a warm and comfortable family home with lovely gardens.

It comes with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two reception rooms, a kitchen/diner and conservatory. It has parking for two cars and double sided access which also allows parking for all the messy bits like bins and barbecues.

Gas heating is standard and number eight’s brick and tile facade makes for low maintenance.
