The fact there was only 26 homes built at the The Stables, Coolroe, in Cork’s Ballincollig just over a decade ago, has given this small development a niche appeal, and few resales.
The Stables was built on, yes, indeed, the former stableyard section of the old Classes House just west of Ballincollig, with the mix of house types ranged in a sort of horseshoe shape, and included a mix of sizes and types, from apartments to townhouses and semis.
The Price Register shows just two resales since 2010, a three-bed apartment in 2012 at €100k, and a townhouse in 2011 which made €214,000.
Now, the high-quality four-bed No 17 is just listed at €310,000 with estate agents O’Mahony Walsh (who’ve just this month revamped their Ballincollig offices) and they have open viewings today at No 17.
Given its location, niche setting, and space, plus with two of its four bedrooms en suite, they can expect a wide cross section of viewing interest.
OMW say condition of the stone-fronted and semi-detached No 17 is excellent, well-maintained, with accommodation over three levels, with two bedrooms per each of the top floors.
The house has an open fireplace in the oak floored front living room, backing up the gas central heating and there’s understairs storage, a utility and guest WC, and kitchen/diner, with integrated appliances in the former and patio/garden access from the latter.
VERDICT: Make a bolt for The Stables, and the polytunnel comes free
Size: c130 sq m (1,400 sq ft)
