JP MCDonagh of agent Knight Frank is guiding a price of €1.95m for the former showrooms of Gowan Motors at the Glenegeary Roundabout in Dun Laoghaire, in south county Dublin.

The subject property extends to a total floor area of 890 sq m (9,500 sq ft), and comprises a modern detached motor showroom and service facility on a site of 0.24 hectares (0.6 acres). In addition, there is a separately accessed first-floor office suite.

The property is strategically located at the junction of Glenageary Avenue and Glenageary Road Upper adjoining the Glenageary Shopping Centre. It is situated 3km from Dun Laoghaire town centre and 2km from Glenageary Dart station, which provides direct access to the city centre in less than 30 minutes.

The property is located in an area zoned 'Neighbourhood Centre' within the Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Development Plan 2016-2022. A range of uses are permissible under this objective including residential, health centre, crèche, public house and restaurant.

JP McDonagh says: "The property occupies a prominent location at the Glenageary Roundabout and is likely to attract the interest of a range of potential occupiers.

"The surrounding area is predominately residential in nature whilst there are limited commercial opportunities in the wider area. As a result, we expect to see strong interest in the property".

The Gowan Group have decided to close the premises following a review of their retail network in Dublin.
