Trading up: Classes, Ballincollig €295,000

Almost literally ahead of the class is 33 The Abbey, a four-bed, two-storey penthouse apartment within Cork’s Classes Lake, on the western fringes of Ballincollig.

Trading up: Classes, Ballincollig €295,000

Size: 160 sq m (1,722 sqft) 

Bathrooms: 4 

Bedrooms: 4 


It’s quite literally the size of a house (and a pretty decent-sized house into the bargain,) as it comes with over 1,700 sq ft of living space, which includes four bedrooms of which three are en suite.

And, not only is it on the top two floors of a niche apartment block in the O’Callaghan Properties scheme, it comes with two balconies so that its occupants can have a choice of outside seating and fresh air spots.

No 33 is for sale with Frank Walsh of O’Mahony Walsh, who guides the unusually large duplex/penthouse apartment at a sub-€300k, at €295,000 and he says it’s “a must-see,” in a prime location, easily accessed from the bypass and near a raft of services and amenities, and is right next door to Ballincollig RFC and Lakewood soccer club.

It’s set just inside the entrance to the large Classes Lake development, with south-west rear aspect backing on to and overlooking the R608, and internally is described as bright, and comfortable, with an open-plan living/dining and kitchen, with gloss units and porcelain tiled kitchen floor.

VERDICT: Like an ‘up off the ground’ house
