River valley views are a major bonus

OUT in the Lee valley, the views are the thing — rolling countryside and wide water makes for a very pleasant aspect. And because of this bucolic beauty, it’s a very desirable place to live, but planning restrictions make it only for the few.

With this in mind the sale of two properties in the area should create a little flutter in the dovecotes.

The first, and most expensive, is high on a hill overlooking the valley at Ballygromen Upper, Ovens.

On the market with Con Nagle of Global Properties Ballincollig, ‘Woodlands’ comes with 2,000 square feet of space and carries a price tag of €725,000.

Set on a third of an acre of lovely gardens, the house is only minutes from the Ballincollig bypass, says Con Nagle. It has one large living room with spectacular views over the water, and the rest of the house isn’t bad either.

The second property is a three-bedroom bungalow at Ballineadig, Farran, which has a guide price of €550,000 through Garry O’Donnell of ERA Downey McCarthy Murphy.

This house also comes with a mature, one-third of an acre site and panoramic views.

An l-shaped bungalow, it comes in very good condition and includes an integrated garage which could easily convert to a fourth bedroom.
