Most affordability on Shannonside
At Ros Mór, off Limerick city's Ballyneety Road, a new phase of three and four-bed semi-detached homes was released at the start of this month, with prices for a three-bed starting at €225,000. The four-beds were priced from €257,500. The builder, Jana Developments, who took over the site in 2015, has promised a large open space and a children's playground will be finished later this year, with work on an on-site creche due to start in 2019.
In Annacotty, about 7km from the centre of Limerick, Clancy Homes is selling three-bed semis for €280,000 and four-bed semis for €310,000 at Bloomfield. Annacotty grew up around the grain mills that harnessed the hydropower of the Mulkear River, and has since been subsumed into the Limerick suburb of Castletroy but it remains one of the prettiest parts of the area. Like homes in Castletroy, properties in Annacotty are popular with staff from the nearby University of Limerick campus.
In Mungret, a village on the outskirts of Limerick city, REA O'Connor Murphy is selling three-beds measuring 1,140 sq ft for €285,000. The homes have natural stonework cladding to part of the facade, with a painted nap plaster finish to the rest of the front elevation. Would-be buyers have a choice of units and worktops for their fitted kitchen, as well as a choice of tiling.
In the living room, buyers can choose a marble or limestone mantle for the fireplace, and a gas fire or a solid fuel stove insert. Each house has an A3 BER, and there is underfloor heating to the ground floor.
Residents can use the new cycle paths, 30-ac public park and the playground that opened in 2016 at Mungret Community College. The Limerick ring road and the tunnel to the west are within a 2.5 km-drive, while the city is 7km away.
