Lisney is offering Mount St Joseph’s in Cork and the surrounding almost three-hectare site with a sale guide price of €750,000.

On an elevated site with panoramic views of Cork harbour, Mount St Joseph’s in Passage West is an irregular-shaped site extending to approximately 6.9 acres. It incorporates a two-storey, detached house built in 1855 with a dormer attic and a single-storey extension. Listed in the Record of Protected Structures, it is BER-exempt. All main services are available.

The entire building extends to approximately 1,254 square metres. There is significant potential for development, subject to planning permission.

Conditional planning permission for a mixed commercial and residential development was recently secured on the former St Mary’s Convent. The site is now set for redevelopment.

It is situated opposite the property on the east side of Fair Hill. The period building and its gardens are situated towards the northern end of the property, leaving the remaining lands to the site uninterrupted and available for development, subject to planning permission.

The property’s primary access is from the eastern boundary. An entrance roadway travels up alongside the boundary, and circles around the building’s front elevation and to the courtyard area to the building’s southern end.

The area is zoned as ‘Existing Built-up Area’ in the Ballincollig-Carrigaline Municipal District Local Area Plan 2017. The property is within an area zoned ‘Architectural Conservation Area’ and is in a ‘High Value Landscape’ area covered by the Cork County Development Plan 2014.

Passage West has a population of 5,800 and is a popular commuter town. Local primary and secondary schools are within walking distance of the property.

The site is some 12km southeast of Cork city centre, 5km east of Rochestown, and 2.5km north of Monkstown. The surrounding area is mainly residential in character, with a series of one-off houses in the vicinity.
