Foxrock housing site on market for €5m

Development in Dublin 18 has permission for 24 homes and apartments across 1.1 acres


A site of 0.67 of a hectare (1.65 acres) with planning permission for a residential development at the Stillorgan Road, Foxrock, D18, goes on sale from today at more than €5 million.

Peter Garrigan of CBRE is to set up a tender arrangement to sell the site, which has permission for 16 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, ranging in size from 73 to 135sq m (785 to 1,453sq ft), and seven four-bedroom houses with floor areas extending from 184 to 195sq m (1,980 to 2,098sq ft). The infill site is located within 1.4km of Foxrock village and 1.5 km of Cabinteely village.

Garrigan said the upsurge in demand for residential properties in Foxrock had resulted in strong and consistent capital values being achieved. The mix of houses and apartments planned for this location will appeal to occupiers planning to downsize.
