The exterior belies the interior space at 22 The Sycamores, Classes Lake.

On the western edge of Ballincollig town, it’s close to EMC and also to the bypass route. It’s in good nick and with a fine, kitchen/ dining room, the price is within the affordable level for a couple looking for a starter home.

There’s little work needed and with two bathrooms, plus a good garden, the layout is attractive for young buyers with friends staying over.

The three bed semi is on the market with O’Mahony Walsh, Ballincollig who say it’s a bright home, really well presented, with good quality wood floors and bathrooms.

The garden’s a good size and comes with a shed and there’s a secure side gate, and parking.

VERDICT: Good location, easy buy as there’s nothing to do — just move in.
