In one of the first hospitality offerings of the year, CBRE Cork is offering Crawford House B&B on Cork’s Western Road in a private treaty sale.
This historic building, which dates back to the early 19th century, is described by the agents as a ‘substantial three-storey property in good condition’. Its 13 en-suite bedrooms are over a ground floor reception area and dining room.
The property got its name from Crawford-Woods, an eminent local historian of his time and the original owner in the 1890s.
The building has been family owned for over three and a half decades, having been converted from a bedsit into guest accommodation in the mid 1990s. It features high ceilings and many of the original features were retained during the conversion.
According to CBRE’s Denis O’Donoghue, Crawford House is a nicely presented property in an excellent location. He expects it to attract interest from those seeking to gain a foothold in the strongly performing Cork hospitality sector.
The property comes to market with vacant possession at an asking price of €625k.
Close by, Nos 1,2 & 3 Westbourne Villas, opposite the main entrance gates to UCC, and which went to market in spring 2017 guiding €2.35m, is understood to be ‘sale agreed’ to an investor buyer via Cushman & Wakefield, with interest shown in it for student accommodation use.
