Cork's Evergreen Bar Reportedly Set To Be Converted Into Seven Residential Units
The Evergreen Bar of 31-35 Evergreen Street in Cork is reportedly set to be converted into seven residential units.
As reported by The Irish Examiner, The Evergreen Bar, which ceased trading approximately three years ago, is being with full planning permission for seven homes via McKenna Property for €850,000.
The property's current owners, husband and wife Denis Murphy and Annamarie Fegan of Excellent Choice Catering, reportedly sold the bar licence last year and obtained full planning permission to construct seven residential units.
The Irish Examiner quotes Michael McKenna of McKenna Property as saying that there's "good interest from builders", and, "It's a super location and all of the services are there. That's attractive for developers. In addition, the Cork City Council development charge is just €1,960."
Property And Planning Details
McKenna reportedly said that the streetscape in front of the terraced building will not be altered.
The property is reportedly located on 0.25 acres of ground and includes two single-storey wings either side of a two-storey and a three-storey mid-section.
Planning permission reportedly has been granted for a one-bed home in each of the single-storey wings, a five-bed house in the three-storey section, two one-bed homes in the two-storey section, and two semi-detached bungalows to the rear of the property.
According to The Irish Examiner, McKenna said that each home will have "a bit of garden" and parking space for a single car, with three private spaces being located onsite and on-street parking permits existing for the other residential units.
