This very prominent property is located in the heart of the north coast village of Bushmills. In addition to being the gateway to the Giant’s Causeway and home to the world’s oldest licensed distillery, there are numerous attractions within 12 miles, including the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, White Park Bay, Dunluce Castle, six golf courses including Royal Portrush and many of the ‘Games of Thrones’ sites including the Dark Hedges.
The seaside resorts of Portrush, Portstewart and Ballycastle, all with their sandy beaches and entertainment, are close by. The village boasts award-winning restaurants, a number of convenience stores, an artisan delicatessen, bakeries, craft shops and galleries. The view from the front overlooks picturesque and well maintained traditional terraced houses.
The property comprises a two-storey former police station on Main Street with side access to a rear tarmac-covered yard with a garage. Internally the building requires refurbishment prior to any occupation.
Beyond this is a further separate enclosed area which is overgrown and includes two compact outbuildings which may also be available for purchase.
The former police station is Grade B1 Listed. The property is within an Area of Archaeological Potential and Conservation Area and the front part is within the town centre limit as set out in the Northern Area Plan 2016.
Opportunity - Residential & Commercial
The existing property provides the opportunity to refurbish and develop the former police station. Its excellent location makes it ideal for a residential or a commercial scheme, particularly if geared towards hospitality and or tourism. The rear of the property overlooks the new £37 million state-of-the-art Causeway Distillery.
The Old Court House nearby is being restored and extended into a cross-community creative hub thanks to almost £10 million in funding. Bushmills Village is also benefiting from a £7.5 million Public Realm scheme which should include improvements to the existing streetscape. Planning permission and listed building consent will be required.
