Trading Up: Ballincollig, Cork - €345,000

TICKING a lot of boxes for families looking for a four-bed home is 27, The Green, in popular Coolroe Meadows.

Size: 116 sqm (1,278 sq ft)

Bathrooms: 3

Bedrooms: 4


The four-bed semi-d is guided at a reachable €345,000, and is in good order overall, with varnished wood floors in bedrooms, hall and rear family room, which has patio door access to a west-facing back garden.

The c 1,275 sq ft home’s other, front sitting room is carpeted, and has a wood-burning stove, while there’s also gas central heating, double glazing, and a very credible B3 BER so should be a manageable pad to keep cosy.

Selling agent Brian Olden of Cohalan Downing says Coolroe Meadows is one of Ballincollig’s more sought-after settings, and has easy access to the bypass road for commuters as well as being close to the town’s services.

The estate was developed by O’Brien and O’Flynn from the late 1990s, and internal layout at No 27 is quite true to the original layout with separate receptions, a 19’ by 9’ kitchen/breakfast room, utility and guest WC all at ground level.

Up above are four bedrooms with one en-suite, and there’s Stira access to the loft.

Externally, there’s a small front lawn, off-street parking, and side access to the west-facing garden which has hedge boundaries, plus a shed.
