Ross Road site will test market

A TWO-acre site on Killarney's leafy Ross Road is on the market in a prospect that's likely to give some indication of the demand for development land in the town.

The two-acre site comes with full planning permission for 16 semi-detached houses and the sale is being handled by auctioneers Tom Spillane and Co, Ltd.

Only minutes from the town centre on the peaceful Ross Road, it represents an attractive proposition and is on the market with a guide price of €350,000.

With very few development properties having traded in the county since the recession kicked in, the sale is also being viewed as a key event in the property market in Killarney - one that should give a good indication of the demand for land of its type at present.

"It's a fabulous location, adjacent to the racecourse and convenient to the town centre," Tom Spillane said. "The sale is very much a testing ground for development land as there has been no demand for this type of land in recent years."
