Former Portrush residential home hits the market at £750,000

A development opportunity has hit the market in Portrush.

York House, which was formerly used as a residential care home by the Presbyterian Church, is a four-storey mid-terrace property overlooking the sea including Portrush harbour and the Skerries Islands.

Portrush is continuously popular both a residential area and holiday destination. The area has additionally attracted global attention as a result of major golfing tournaments such as The Open.

Located at 13-14 Landsdowne Crescent, the adjoining property, 9-12 Lansdowne Crescent, has had planning consent granted for construction of a 76-bedroom nursing home on five floors over a basement.

Whilst the development potential of the site is subject to planning, commercial property agents O’Connor, Kennedy and Turtle said the recent nearby consents would indicate the acceptability of various uses which might include residential, hospitality or institutional.

Brian Turtle added: “The sale coincides with a time when Portrush is the place to be spending money. With everyone talking about the upcoming golf there is a lot of excitement and we are expecting a lot of interest in the property.”

“The site is really breathtaking with clear uninterrupted views across the old harbour towards the Skerries.”

Offers in the region of £750,000 will be considered.
