Foxrock housing site on 0.108 of an acre for €800,000

Site has planning permission for four-bed detached house of 225sq m


How much would you expect to pay for a house site in the south Dublin suburb of Foxrock? Finín O’Driscoll of Knight Frank has calculated the value at €800,000 and is seeking that amount for 0.108 of an acre on Westminster Road. The site has planning permission for a four-bedroom detached house with a floor area of 225sq m (2,421sq ft).

Well-heeled bidders will also have the option of buying an adjoining house, Rusheen, which stands on a site of 0.6 of an acre. The five-bedroom house is available from Knight Frank at €2.5 million.

New Applegreen in Navan Retail Park

The under-performing Navan Retail Park will receive a welcome boost with plans by Applegreen to open a new petrol service station as well as a 5,000sq ft building with a retail unit, food outlets and a drive-thru restaurant.

Although struggling much of the time, the Navan park was given a valuable endorsement last year when TK Maxx opened a new fashion outlet there.

Applegreen has 155 service stations across the Republic, 77 sites in the UK and 11 in the US.

Kildare’s Castletown Inn on market

One of the leading bars in the greater Dublin area, the Castletown Inn in Celbridge, Co Kildare, is expected to sell for above the €1.4/€1.5 million guide when it is auctioned on July 5th by joint agents REA Coonan and John P Younge Auctioneers.

The Inn has traded successfully for decades and has an equally buoyant food sales business in the adjoining 65-seat Green’s restaurant. The Inn is based in the centre of the town, where it backs on to a site of 0.5 of an acre and 43 car parking spaces. The property also includes a two-storey house that, like the adjoining site, has obvious development potential.

The site has planning permission for four large two-storey detached houses with eight off-street car parking spaces. A second permission for a further three houses at the end of Mill Lane has lapsed.
