Site in north Dublin with full planning for 31 houses at €1.7m
A 2.43-acre site in Donabate, north county Dublin, with full planning permission for 31 houses has been brought to the market with a guide price of €1.7m by agents REA Grimes.
The site at 'Glasslinn' on Portrane Road, which is being offered for sale by private treaty, provides for the construction of seven two-bedroom houses (89 sq m), 10 three-bedroom houses (130 sq m) and 14 four-bedroom houses (156 sq m-172 sq m) under the terms of the planning permission granted last October.
The site currently has a four-bed detached residence of approximately 190 sq m (2,045 sq ft).
According to the Fingal County Council Development Plan 2011-2017, the property is zoned under two different objectives - namely Objectives RS and TC.
While Objective RS provides for "residential development and the protection and improvement of residential amenity", Objective TC is aimed at the "protection and enhancement of the special physical and social character of town and district centres and to provide and/or improve urban facilities".
Referring to the site's potential, Paul Grimes of agents REA Grimes said: "We anticipate strong demand from a variety of builders and developers for this prime site. This site provides an opportunity to develop a high-quality residential scheme in a proven sales location with a host of amenities on its doorstep."
With an enviable location in north Dublin, the development benefits from some 40 metres of road frontage on to the Portrane Road and is located within 300 metres of Donabate Town Centre and just 500m from Donabate train station.
Located approximately 22km north of Dublin city centre, the coastal town of Donabate has an array of boutiques, salons, restaurants, cafés, health and fitness clubs, golf clubs and other sporting facilities.
The selling agents believe the site's attractiveness for potential purchasers and future residents is enhanced further by the prospect of Donabate being linked to Malahide via the proposed 'Broadmeadow Way'.
The proposal is the subject of ongoing discussions between Fingal County Council and The National Transport Authority.
