Killiney development site offers excellent potential at €800,000




A seemingly contradictory combination of visibility and seclusion offers excellent potential for a buyer with vision at a key Killiney development site in South County Dublin.  Selling agents Dooley Auctioneers are quoting €800,000 for the strategically positioned 0.6 acre (2430 square metres) linear development site at Beechwood Nurseries, Ballinclea Road.

Previously operated as a horticultural garden nursery business, the site is located on the Graduate Roundabout, an important local road hub at the junction of Rochestown Avenue, Church Road and the main R118 to Dun Laoghaire. It’s a location that affords exceptional prominence and visibility, yet thanks to the presence of a characterful, three-metre high stone boundary wall, it is completely secluded from public view.

As a consequence of its former use, the site is mainly laid out as a shrub and plant nursery, with only a potting shed and a lean-to greenhouse currently in situ. According to selling agent Gabriel Dooley, the condition of the plot presents buyers with a blank canvas that, subject to planning permission, can accommodate a wide variety of uses.

“Thanks to the combination of privacy and accessibility in a much sought after residential suburb, there is obvious potential here for residential development, either as a single property standing on its own grounds, or an exclusive enclave development,” he says.

From its roundabout location, the site’s residential appeal is enhanced by rapid road access to the many shops, schools, services and amenities of Dun Laoghaire, Killiney, Cabinteely and other nearby areas of South Dublin.

“The site’s strategic location right on the roundabout also offers commercial potential, particularly for any business seeking a high visibility location with a large volume of passing traffic,” Gabriel Dooley adds.

There is currently restrictive access to the site from Ballinclea Road, with potential for additional access from Church Road, subject to planning permission.
