Greystones & Delgany Get Heritage FundingMay 5, 2017
Little Tern Takes FlightMay 11, 2017
Despite Wicklow County Council’s recent appeal to the Assemblies Of God’s christian side, and the national media joining the outcry over 30 men in care about to be made homeless, it would appear it’s all systems go once again for the sale of Carraig Eden.
After the residents having just missed a six-month deadline price of €1.7m earlier this year, it was reported that a property developer had put €3m on the table.
That €3m was on the condition of planning permission being granted, and, from what GG hears, is the main reason the deal collapsed.
One of Greystones’ most iconic buildings, the sale of Carraig Eden has proven to be a long and painful road for its residents since first announced just before Easter 2016.
It would now appear that the good work that has been part of this 1860 building for many decades now has little chance of rising again, as the house has just been listed on daft.ie as Development Land For Sale. The sale is being handled by Ben Pearson of Agar Commercial Property Consultants, and the guide price this time around is rumoured to be €2.2m.
Described on the website as ‘a truly magnificent landmark property, enjoying iconic spectacular views‘, the 0.83-acre Carraig Eden is descirbed as ‘a substantial two-storey property including, 21 bedrooms, 5 apartments, caretakers residence, catering kitchen and ancillary kitchen, reception rooms, dining and living room, workshop, creche and assembly rooms, together with showers and toilets. The extensive two-storey property is noted as being not listed, and ‘together with three-storey return comprising in total approximately 1,278 square metres‘. An external L-shaped bungalow and sports pavillion structure are also included.
