The Property comprises the former Crumlin Road Courthouse which is an iconic building in Northern Ireland being the location for many high profile trials during the Troubles.
It comprises an imposing and impressive two storey Grade B+ listed building constructed in 1840 in a Classical style with extensive symmetrical entrance front incorporating a hexastyle Corinthian portico.
The building stands as one of the grandest examples of its type in Northern Ireland, and together with the Gaol opposite, forms part of a very important architectural group.
The property is accessed directly from Crumlin Road and has former car parking areas to the side and rear. The property has been vacant for a number of years and requires substantial refurbishment due to fire damage.
In total the site extends to approximately 1.9 acres (0.77 hectares).
Planning permission for a change of use and the development of the property as a hotel was granted in June 2018.

The subject is designated for ‘mixed use’ purpose and is incorporated into a development site (BT003) that also includes Crumlin Road Gaol and Girdwood Barracks. The property benefits from full planning permission for a hotel development and is an iconic well known land mark building steeped in architectural social history situated opposite a very popular tourist attraction. Potential exists to explore other development options including residential and cultural uses (subject to planning).
