A peachy perch for Apple staff at Hollyhill Heights

There is a strong likelihood that this three-bed semi at 6 Hollyhill Heights will sell either to a first-time buyer working in Apple, or to an investor who rents it to an Apple employee.

Situated within a 10-minute walk from the European HQ of the world’s largest IT company, the property is already attracting the interest of both types of buyers.

Selling agents Thomas J O’Driscoll auctioneers say the 950 sq ft property, which was built in 2006, is very well maintained and in very good condition.

“It’s in a prime location just off Blarney street, and is also within walking distance of the city centre,” says auctioneer Paul O’Driscoll, quoting a guide price of €175,000.

At the front of the house there’s a timber-floored sitting room which has a modern fireplace with a gas fire.

To the rear there’s an 18’ wide tiled kitchen/dining room which has modern cream units and integrated appliances as well as patio doors leading out to the back garden.

The first floor has a bathroom and three timber-floored bedrooms with fitted wardrobes. 

Fitted with double glazed window and gas heating, the house had a C2 energy rating To the front there’s a parking space and to the rear a garden area which, in the interests of easy maintenance, has been paved. 

As the name suggests, this property is on a height and has views of the city.

There don’t seem to be any recorded sales in Hollyhill Heights on the Property Price Register which seems to indicate that they don’t come on the market too often.

VERDICT: a reasonably quick sale is expected.
