Portrush property presents golden opportunity ahead of Open

By Emma Deighan

A prime development opportunity in Portrush has gone on the market for £500,000 as the town gears up for The Open in July. York House on 13-14 Lansdowne Crescent is a four-storey mid-terrace building which was previously used as a residential home. With "exceptional" sea views the property has 32 bedrooms, a lounge, dining room, kitchen and offices.

Listed by O'Connor Kennedy Turtle (OKT), York House has development potential for residential, hospitality or institutional use. Neighbouring businesses include the Ramore Head, the Wine Bar Complex and The Coastal Zone.

Other properties on the same terrace are currently being developed into apartments and a nursing home.

The listing comes as the town gears up for the 148th Open taking place there this July.

Henry Taggart, associate surveyor at OKT, said: "The Open has been a positive thing. Everything in the town is being renewed, it's phenomenal and a great time to be in the area.

"Property prices are sustainable and this is an opportunity to redevelop into apartments or large replacement terraces."

Two weeks ago Andras Hotel's proposed 87-room hotel on Main Street in the town was granted approval and a £10m scheme by Causeway Homes on the seafront has given way to 27 apartments with a starting price of £245,000.
