This is a prime, residential location in Dublin, situated adjacent to the Egyptian AmbassadorTM Residence and close to 'Brennanstown Vale' a high quality housing scheme.
The property comprises a prime residential development site extending to 2.79 acres which has frontage in two sections to Brennanstown Road. The site is U shaped and wraps around a detached residence. The site is level in nature and is ideally suited to the development of a high end housing scheme of between 7 - 10 houses per acre (subject to planning permission).
The surrounding area generally comprises one off residences along Brennanstown Road and Brighton Road with some new developments like Carrickmines Wood located 450 metres northwest of the property. There is a right away running along the western boundary of the site leading to the rear of the site.
A planning application (Planning Ref: D10A/0196) was lodged in June 2010 for the development of 16 houses as follows:
9 number, detached 2-storey houses of 503 sq m
3 number detached 2-storey houses respectively of 247/342/487 sq m
4 semi-detached, 2 storey houses of 240 sq m each
The application was refused on the basis that the road was not considered adequate to facilitate the development and at that time was considered premature. More recently the local authority have proposed traffic calming and road widening measures which if implemented will include a traffic light
controlled contra flow between the Egyptian Embassy and the Lehaunstown Lane junction. Details are available on DLR website https://dlrcoco.citizenspace.com/infrastructure-climate-change/brennanstown-road-traffic-management-scheme/consult_view
The property is located in an area zoned objective "to protect, provide and improve residential amenity" in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Development Plan 2010 - 2016.
Given the prime location in this affluent suburb, this site is ideally suited to a quality residential development, subject to planning permission.
