    About this property

    • This superb development opportunity has the benefit of full planning permission for a commercial development on the southern section of the site with the northern section of the site zoned for residential development.

      The property is well located in the heart of Fermoy just north of the River Blackwater within walking distance of the town’s plentiful amenities.

      The opportunity now exists to acquire this superb “ready to go” development site in one of Cork's largest commuter towns.

      The property itself comprises a substantial landholding in the heart of the town centre that extends to approximately 5.66 ha (14 acres) in total. The majority of the “L” shaped site is relatively flat throughout and has the benefit of dual access from the N72 to the north and east of the site. The site is naturally divided in two by an existing stone wall that traverses the site from east to west.

      1. The southern portion of the site is the area that benefits from Full Planning Permission for the development of a destination Garden Centre, Café and ancillary glasshouses. The southern section currently occupies a steel clad shed, a derelict stone cottage as well as a magnificent ancient Oak tree that centres the site which is believed to date back to the later 18th Century.

      2. The northern section of the overall site is zoned for residential development. The topography on is level throughout with access via the N72 on the northern boundary. The site is regular in configuration and offers an ideal opportunity to create a bespoke residential development subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent.

    High profile development opportunity in the heart of Fermoy town.
