Bessboro , Terenure, Dublin 6 Sold

Residential Investment Property C2


On the instructions of the receiver Jim Hamilton, BDO, DNG Advisory are guiding €11.75 Million for the residential investment Bessboro, Terenure Road West, Dublin 6 which was developed c. 2008.
This investment is ‘For Sale by best bids’, no later than Friday 25th September at 2pm. This is the most significant multi-family residential investment to come to the market in 2015.

40 apartments are being brought to the market today in one of Dublin’s most sought after residential locations. The investment opportunity has a 100% per cent occupancy rate. The investment is producing an annual rental income of c. €635,000 which could be increased over time to c. €750.000 per annum. The location of the investment in such a prime residential rental location means that the rent could be substantially increased through active management of the asset. The current shortage of rental accommodation in South Dublin should ensure strong interest in the investment.

The 40 apartments are split into two blocks - Block A, is a purpose-built block, while Block B incorporates a conversion and extension of the former period property at the centre of the development. The development also includes 64 basement parking spaces which is accessed via secure electric gates. The new owner will have total control of all residential units at Bessboro.
