A rare residentially zoned site with plenty of potential has gone up for sale in the centre of Gorey.
No. 7 Old Garden City in Gorey is being sold by private treaty by Quinn Property.
Planning permission was active on the 0.13acre site as recent as 2016. “The next owner would have to apply for planning permission again but since it’s already been granted permission so recently there is a good precedent” said Jack.
The property has the benefit of a partially built, two storey residence and will appeal to those seeking to build a modern home in a town centre location. Jack said this property has the potential to become a family home but the scale, configuration and location of this site is also a prime site for a multi-unit development. “I’m not an architect but the existing house could quite possibly be built on without having to knock it so there are a lot of opportunities with it,” said Jack. The location of this site is a quick walk away from shops, schools and restaurants in Gorey town. “It’s very rare in this day and age to get a site like this in the centre of Gorey and we’ve have a few enquiries about it since it went up for sale a week ago,” said Jack Quinn of Quinn Property.
Gorey is one of the fastest growing commuter towns in Ireland and this property is only a four minute drive to Junction 22 and the M11 which means commuters could reach South Dublin within 50 minutes. For those who don’t drive, there are many public transport options as well, such as Bus Éireann, Wexford Bus and the local train station.
There’s lots to do in Gorey with its endless sandy beaches, golf courses like Courtown Golf and Ballymoney Golf Club and swimming and leisure centres. Gorey Town Park has a walking track, large playground, outdoor gym equipment, skate-park and two football fields.
