This new development of A-rated detached and semi-detached homes is located between the Model Farm road and Ballincollig. There are only 26 units on the site — 16 detached and 10 semi-detached, all A-rated, laid out in culs de sac. The first phase of 11 units, launched last week, was of seven four-bedroom detached homes of five different types ranging from 170sqm-268sqm, and four semi-detached houses at 133sqm. All the semi-detached units have now sold out, and more will follow in the spring.
With traditional exteriors, these concrete-built, two-storey homes include fireplace surrounds and solid fuel stoves in the living room or lounge. Depending on the house type, they contain luxury fitted kitchens, utility rooms plumbed for washing machines, master, second and (in most cases) third bedrooms en-suite in detached units, quality sanitary ware, panelled doors, moulded skirting and architraves, cobbled parking areas at the front and a patio area at the rear.
Prices range from €425,000 for the four-bed semi-detached and from €620,000-€820,000 for the four-bed detached homes.
Viewing: The show homes are open Thursday 26, 5.30pm-6.30pm and by private appointment.
