Trading up: Ballincollig, Cork €320,000

Hot on the heels of a super-swift sale agreed on a detached 1,600 sq ft four-bed home at Ballincollig’s Greenfields which came to market this month guiding €470,000, estate agent Norma Healy of Sherry FitzGerald has another four-bed in the locale. 

Size: 120 sqm (1,300 sqft) 

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 4 


And, she can expect to be busier, as it’s €150k or so cheaper (as it’s smaller) than that other sale.

She is selling 34 Berryfield, inside in the Classes Lake development west of Ballincollig and Ovens; at its guide, and given the area’s profile and booming market and being so close to major local employer EMC, it’s going to be strongly viewed.

It won’t disappoint viewers either, as it’s clean and well-kept, and has useful block-built garden shed and large raised decking behind, on its two-level garden, with side gate access.

Inside it has a front living room, rear family room with patio/play area access, and is next to a kitchen/diner. There’s also a ground floor guest WC, and overhead one of the four wood-floored bedrooms has an en suite.

No 34 has gas heating, plus double glazed windows and insulation has just recently been upgraded.

VERDICT: Could be just as quick a seller as the larger Greenfields four-bed was
