If you go down to the woods today ...

THERE are some quirky buys in the market at the moment and this one, close to Farran Woods, might appeal to qualifying buyers.

The house is an almost complete, detached property on three-quarters of an acre and is on the market with Tim Murray of O’Mahony Walsh for offers close to €250,000.

That’s good value for a house that offers a floor area of 267 sq metres, but there’s a catch.

Only those with connections

to the area can purchase this property, as it’s in a planning restricted area. The current asking is €250,000 and there are quotes in the brochure for around €90,000 to complete the work, which would give a large, four-bed for the bones of €350,000.

The house is south-facing at the rear, includes an open plan kitchen/dining area and three overhead bedrooms in a rural location, but close to the N22 and Ballincollig bypass.
