St Oran’s Road, Buncrana

Offering commercial & residential possibilities

Having traded successfully as a solicitor’s practice since 2007, this 3 storey, centrally located property was previously occupied as a family home. Ideally suited to another solicitor’s practice the property would come ready to plug & play and with an obvious benefit of goodwill attached.  Having parking for up to 15 vehicles the property would also suit many other office based businesses. By carrying out some fairly minor renovations this property could easily be brought back to a residential unit, which if done would provide 5/6 bedrooms (2 en-suite) and 2 reception rooms. Conveniently situated, the property is within walking distance to all the local schools and local amenities.
