A NEW housing development in Limerick city has only 14 out of 42 properties left for sale.

When Templeville, Ballinacurra Road, Punches Cross  was launched last November over 500 attended the first viewing day with a number sleeping in their cars to ensure their dream house.

The 20 four-bedroom houses have all been snapped up and eight of the five bedroom semi-detached ones are sold, said Tom Crosse, GVM, joint selling agent with Joe Wheeler, of Wheeler Auctioneers.

The first viewing of 2018 takes place this Sunday, February 4 from 2pm to 4pm.

“There are 14 five-bedroom semi-detached houses left. They are almost 1,900 square feet. Prices are from €369,500. There has been huge demand,” said Mr Crosse.

Templeville is being built by Ballymount Properties. It won’t be completed until 2019. The trend of purchasers has been either young couples starting out or older people downsizing from their big country houses into a nice central location, he said.
