The fully-fitted apartments are almost fully occupied and let on standard 12-month tenancy agreements at average rents ranging from €975 for one-bed until to €1,300 for three-bed units.

The current annual rent roll of €660,000 could be increased to market level at €720,000 through active asset management and lettings, according to the selling agents.

The 50 apartments developed in 2006 include 15 one- beds, 30 two-beds and five three-beds.

They range in size from 87sq m to 100sq m and are finished to a high standard including fully tiled bathrooms, integrated kitchens, wood flooring and balconies with decking.

McCaffrey said the attractive yield and rent roll should appeal to domestic and overseas investors seeking to scale up their holdings.
