House price is set to bloom

SPRING is sprung, the grass is riz and it’s a splendid time to sell a property in the Daffodil Fields.

The sale of the land around Poulavone House, on which this infill development is built, made headlines some 10 years ago, when purchased by builder, John Fleming.

And because the land produced a host of wild daffodils each year, the developer ran with the name.

Designed by architect, Richard Rainey, there are just 50 or so houses in the scheme which were launched at £90,000 when first built.

The maturation process here is a good log of the property market. Right now No 6, The Daffodil Fields is up for sale with Norma Healy of Sherry FitzGerald and has a guide price in the region of €400,000. Last year, another property here started at €320,000 and sold for around €340,000, while previously, the record held for 2002 was €330,000.

No. 6 is a detached four-bed, that's exceptionally well finished it really is a walk-in job and is bright and spacious to boot.

A major draw will also be the fully walled-in and extra large back garden, while the front of the house faces onto the main road, giving lots of privacy.

Immaculately presented, No. 6 should set a new record here.
