Although Curraheen needs work, it’s a Well Road prospect well worth considering.
A dated, mid-1900s four-bed Douglas suburban semi which is in need of quite the overhaul, nonetheless it’s a bit of a box ticker....mainly, due to exactly where it is set.
It’s on the Well Road rising up out of Douglas by Churchyard Lane, towards the now-busy old suburban route out to Mahon and has views of the Douglas estuary past Mahon Golf Club, thanks to its elevation over the road.
The long view to the front is appealing, and just as beguiling are the views out the back, over a little-visited public green off Ardmahon Estate.
Douglas village is a walk away, so too are Ballintemple, Beaumont and Ballinlough suburbs and schools: it’s a location for easy family living.
Selling agent is Jackie Cohalan of Cohalan Downing, and she guides the 1,120 sq ft home needing prettying up, and with several lovely original features, at €365,000.
For those keen on the location, and with more to spend, Savills have a Well Road hide-away period house, the seven-bed Douglas Hall, new to market by the Douglas Road and entered under the flyover at Riverbank, priced at €1.1m.
VERDICT: Curraheen should go Well.
