Landbank on Wicklow coast guided at €2.5m
There will be keen interest in a parcel of 240ac of agricultural coastal lands at Brittas Bay, Co. Wicklow.
Adjoining the European Club Golf Course, the lands are located east of the N11, to the south of Brittas Bay, and are divided by the R750.
The land bank was assembled over a period of time with a view to developing the site as a major leisure centre to include a hotel complex, a championship golf course and on-course holiday accommodation.
The property is now on the market as agricultural land with a guide price of €2.5m or just over €10,000/ac.
The hotel development was to include to include 142 suites and the normal hotel facilities along with golfing facilities to include a members lounge / drawing room, pro shop , caddy master office, caddy store and 12 two-storey two bedroom holiday cottages.
The application also sought permission for an 18 hole par 71 golf course including a driving range and putting green, feature irrigation lakes, a bowling green and pavilion building, a three-storey sports academy building, four all-weather pitches and extensive parking spaces.
According to Cianan Duff of selling agents Savill, part of this proposed development involved realigning the existing public road R750 to provide access to the development.
The lands are divided by the R750 and are mostly in rough grazing with the exception of some tillage land on the western portion of the site.
