Irish Examiner - Property & Interiors - - Property -

CORK’S Kerry Pike vil­lage “was buzzing all week­end,” says es­tate agent Paul Han­non of Sherry Fitzger­ald, af­ter the com­pany agreed sales on 19 out of 21 brand new builds, just launched at O’flynn Con­struc­tion’s fresh Clon­alara de­vel­op­ment of 144 homes on the fringes of Cork city, af­ter two days of open house.

And, while build­ing is only re­ally get­ting in its stride at Clon­lara’s c 40-acres, this same month a new show house opens for 14 large de­tached homes also in Kerry Pike. It’s at the Mitchells Court scheme, where O’flynn Con­struc­tion bought out the re­main­der of this once-stalled scheme of 33 de­tacheds, started by D&J Builders in 2008.

The show unit, or the largest, c 2,440 sq ft ‘A’ type opens on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, and is one of four house styles de­signed day one by ar­chi­tect Bill Mullins for Mitchells Court, which was the first new house de­vel­op­ment in Kerry Pike for over 30 years when started in ’08, with prices back then of €670,000 to €830,000.

There’s still a vil­lage com­mu­nity feel to Kerry Pike, de­spite its prox­im­ity to Cork city (‘bout three miles) via Clogheen and to Tower, Blar­ney and Ballincol­lig, with­na­tion­alschoolandgaa­club at its cen­tre. Af­ter the launch of Clon­lara the pop­u­la­tion is set to grow steadily.

Aim­ing to fin­ish out the up­mar­kets scheme of Mitchells Court first, there are 14 houses to be fin­ished, four are pre-sold, and nine are avail­able, says Sherry Fitz’s Ne­whomes­di­rec­tor­paul­han­non, with prices start­ing at €530,000 for a D type; all have in­di­vid­ual price tags and ‘A’s are cur­rently priced at €585,000, hav­ing c 200 sq ft more over­all space.

Mean­while, the Sherry Fitz/ O’flynn Con­struc­tion ‘team’ launch last week­end of the more broadly-based Clon­lara Kerry Pikescheme500me­tre­saway,with a mar­ket­ing suite/cabin on site, is be­ing seen as very suc­cess­ful and hit­ting the mark in terms of pric- ing. Clon­lara has nine house types, with 1,100 sq ft three-bed semis priced €285,000/€295,000 and higher were keenly pur­sued and all booked, with four-bed 1,500 sq ft de­tacheds from €365,000 also very pop­u­lar.

The 19 sales of the 21 homes re­leased cov­ered all types up to and ex­clud­ing the largest de­tacheds, with two avail­able at the €500,000 mark where, pre­sum­ably, in­tend­ing buy­ers will be weigh­ing up the op­tions of Clon­lara vs Mitchells Court.
