'Good interest' as Main Street building is guided at €700,000
THE BUILDING which once was home to Marlowe Cleaners will go under the auctioneer's gavel on Friday, July 8, with a reserve price tag of €700,000.
The auctioneer Jenny McDermott of Kehoe and Associates reckons that the building will sell, as already there has been 'good interest in it'.
The vacant property neighbouring the site is Dunnes Stores, but as yet the Dunne family have not expressed an interest in acquiring 7 South Main Street.
Standing right in the heart of Wexford's golden mile, the building stands three storey over a basement, with planning permission for a two-storey extension to the rear.
The upper level of the building was previously a dental surgery, and with a separate entrance is suitable as offices.
'We have a guide price of €700,000 on the property, the owner is retiring and wants to sell. We've had a good bit of interest in it,' said Ms McDermott, who added that the last property on the Main Street sold by Kehoe & Associates was the ACC bank – now Jack & Jones.
' There is a good level of interest in the property and a steady trickle of people going to view it.'
The property will be auctioned in the auction rooms of Kehoe & Associates on July 8 at 3 p.m.
