This batch of pre-bypass housing kicked off the Celtic Tiger property obsession when they were built in 1998 and the Woodberry houses were the first of the big, self-build estates in Ballincollig, Cork.
No 52 meanwhile, has matured into its site and has lush gardens around a house that should tick all the boxes for the large, detached buyer.
The sale is being handled by Terence O’Leary of Murray Browne who says the vendors are downsizing now that the family is reared and he’s seeking offers in the region of €640,000 for the extra large, five/six-bed home.
An end-of-row property with a great, south-west aspect, the roominess starts at the entrance driveway, where there’s plenty of parking for three cars and then into the large, ground floor.
The formal living room is to the front of the house on the left and on the right, there’s a back-to-front, living and formal/ dining room with direct access to the kitchen and sunroom.
The kitchen is a big room of 24’ by 12’ fitted in a range of country pine units, with a large utility to the side.
The kitchen is the pivotal room in the house with direct access through French doors to the garden and also to the bright, comfortable sunroom.
The upper level has five bedrooms, two of which are ensuite and a main bathroom and on the third floor, there’s a well laid-out second floor which was created in the original construction.
Number 52 is a warm family home and offers good space at the guide price.
