A GOOD, solid block of a house, built by O’hal­lo­rans 60 years or so ago, and now up for sale with a €375,000 ask­ing price — that’s 18 Halldene Way, off the west­ern end of the Cur­ra­heen Road, close to its ac­cess point on the N40 Ballincol­lig by­pass.

Stress­ing the sheer amount of house here for the sub-€400k sum, and in Cork’s set­tled west­ern sub­urbs too, es­tate agent Peter Skuse of Ca­ha­lane Skuse auc­tion­eers says No 18 of­fers great value and op­tions to a wide cross-sec­tion of buy­ers.

It has a fifth bed­room now, at ground level with shower room en suite, as well as frontto-back linked re­cep­tion rooms, and kitchen plus util­ity. Over­head, four bed­rooms are served by the main, four-piece fam­ily bath­room, and while over­all con­di­tion is good, it needs fresh­en­ing up and a mod­ernising makeover.

It’s set at Bish­op­stown’s outer stretches, at the end of a cul de sac, in a criss-cross se­ries of estates be­tween Cur­ra­heen Road and Wa­ter­fall Road, near the Univer­sity Tech­nol­ogy Park and Mary­mount.

Mean­while, as ev­i­dence of eco­nomic re­cov­ery, news was con­firmed this week of plans by mo­tor group John­son & Per­rott to in­vest €15m in a new mo­tor mall deal­er­ship on the nearby Ban­don Road’s old Uponor site .

VER­DICT: Haul your­self out to Halldene.
