McGovern Estates present an exceptional development opportunity to the market.

‘San Remo’ up until recently served as a nursing home for up to 51 residents over the past 35 years.

It is located on Sidmonton Road which would be considered a highly desirable location in Bray with Bray Main Street, DART, the seafront promenade and a wealth of amenities on its doorstep. Sidmonton Park and playground is less than 100m away.

The site is approximately 0.4 acres with the existing buildings occupying 960 m² (10,329 ft.²) of the footprint of the site. The Bray municipal district local area plan 2018 designates the site as ‘RE’ (existing residential) “To provide for house improvements, alterations and extensions and appropriate infill residential development in accordance with the principles of good design and protection of existing residential amenity.

Architects Reddy Architecture & Urbanism have undertaken a feasibility study and suggest that a density of between 8 to 21 residential units would be permitted depending on the unit type and whether some of the existing structures are retained.

The maximum density proposed in this report would be made up of six one bed apartments of 48 m² and 15 two bed apartments of 78 m². An alternative option might consist of a refurbishment of the two original houses and a new development of four 3 story terraced residential homes of 184 m².
