26 May Family Homes at Heathfield, Ballincollig
As we begin to wrap up for Christmas 2019, we thought we would quickly talk about Heathfield – a brand development of three and four-bed homes located just off easy access from the N22 – at Carriganarra, Ballincollig, Cork.
The A3 BER, traditionally block built homes feature photovoltaic solar panels to aid in producing hot water, gas central heating, PV panels for contribution electricity demand and contemporary insulation that ensures air tightness and low energy running.
As you can see from the stunning 3D renders by our CGI team below – facades are finished with tasteful red brick and painted render, with cobblelock pavements for off-street parking overlooking open greenery and plenty of space for young families to let loose on the weekends.
Inside integrated finishes abound, with open planned spaces, good under stairs storage, en-suite master bedrooms and fully tilled bathrooms.
Heathfield is ultimately a great long-term home for young and mature families – just south of Ballincollig town and adjoining the newly relocated, 750 pupil Gaelscoil Uí Riordáin national school and playing fields.
