TWO great bargains can be had in Ballincollig this week, and at the risk of hitting the ‘reasons to be cheerful’ button — now is the time to buy.
First on the list is a four-bed, detached house at 61 Wyndham Downs on the market with Norma Healy of Sherry FitzGerald for €495,000.
Tucked away at the end of a private driveway, this house comes with two ensuite bedrooms and a floor area of 1,600 square feet.
And best of all, it has a big, sunroom extension at the rear which leads onto a lawn and a deck.
There’s a formal living room with cast iron fireplace, a large family room with black granite fireplace and the kitchen/diner is shaker maple. The bedrooms are all doubles, save for one and the main bathroom comes with a jacuzzi bath.
The vendors have already purchased, says Norma Healy, and are committed sellers — hence the reasonable guide.
Further up the main Cork/Macroom road, at Classes Lake, another must-sell property is on the market with Pat Clancy of Global Properties at 64 Fernway.
It’s a four-bed duplex apartment and it’s pitched at €289,000 — a rock-bottom price, according to Clancy. The owners have emigrated and leaving behind their professionally decorated apartment. At 1,200 sq ft, it has a big kitchen dining room (21’ by 13’) and a living room leading onto a large terrace.
The stairs hallway, with guest loo, leads to four overhead bedrooms, one of which is used as an office, with master en suite. This floor also has a main bathroom.
The duplex has a designated parking space.
