Limeworth woos buyers

THEY were tagged at a million-plus during the boom, but now these Limeworth houses are selling in the high €700s.

And selling is the operative word, for, despite a sluggish upper level market, this Carriganarra, Ballincollig estate is still doing the business.

Norma Healy of Sherry FitzGerald, who’s on her fourth sale in the estate, is now selling 35 Limeworth, a large, detached house in a leafy corner of the scheme.

It’s on the market at €750,000 and offers just under 3,000 square feet of space with a painstaking degree of finish.

From the sub-tropical, (and very expensive) planting and landscaping, the Indian sandstone/cobble-lock finish of the front and back, the integrated, block-built shed, to boundary walls– first impressions are good.

And inside, the painstaking approach continues with cherry floors and kitchen, good marble fireplaces and fully finished bathrooms and bedrooms.

There are five bedrooms with three en suites, including a dormer room with dressing room and bathroom.

All appliances are included and the house comes with a pressurised and zoned gas heating system.

Its location at the top of a small cul-de-sac means it’s not overlooked and, in truth, it’s a move-in proposition.

Norma Healy of Sherry FitzGerald, who has notched up a number of sales here, is the agent handling no 35 and she’s open to offers in the region of the guide price.
