** Best & Final Bids Deadline - 5pm Friday 13th October 2017 **
This is a substantial 10.43 acre fully serviced residential development site. Roads and services are already in place and the lands in question were designed to form part of the Ivy Grove Housing Scheme. Excellent location on the outskirts of Collooney.
These lands, which were to form part of the Ivy Grove Housing Scheme are located off the Old Galway Road on the outskirts of Collooney. Collooney is a thriving small town which saw dramatic development during the Celtic Tiger years. Much of this was commercial, however, the area also benefitted from a large number of new residential housing schemes.
Ivy Grove was the most prestigious of all the new housing schemes with its large detached properties throughout. The lands are situated on an elevated site above the road enjoying excellent views across to the Ox Mountains and back into the centre of Collooney. The lands are located within walking distance of the town centre; however, there is very much a country feel to this location.
The Collooney area is very well serviced with shops, bars, restaurants, etc. and the area has also seen a dramatic increase in commercial activity with the development of large retail warehouse and warehouse parks fronting onto the dual carriageway which bypasses Collooney town. Also a short distance away is the newly redeveloped Markree Castle, one of Sligo’s most spectacular properties which is in use as a hotel and wedding venue.
The area is well serviced with schools, shops, community playing fields, churches, etc. and is an ideal family home location.
Transport facilities from Collooney are excellent with a rail network and a dual carriageway bringing you the short seven miles into Sligo town centre. Collooney is situated at the junction of the main Sligo to Dublin and Sligo to Galway Roads.
The subject lands previously had the benefit of full Planning Permission for 54 detached residential dwellings, along with a commercial building designed for crèche facilities.
