A LOCAL private developer has bought the site of one of Enniskillen’s most prominent businesses.
After spending less than three months on the market, the site of TP Topping Ltd has been sold. The property was placed on the market for £1.5 million in July, but it is not yet known what the buyer paid as the final agreed price.
The well established car dealership on the Dublin Road, closed its doors at the end of June after operating in the town for almost 90 years. Shortly after the closure, the property with shop frontage sweeping around the Dublin Road as it meets the junction of the Tempo Road was put up for sale for a massive £1.5 million.
Listed by estate agent, Eadie McFarland, the property is understood to be on a site just under two acres in size.
The estate agent previously explained to the Herald that there may be potential to develop the property, subject to necessary planning approvals.
Business directors Peter Little and Ronald Hurst announced the closure of the business after both men made the difficult decision to retire. The site has been home to TP Topping since 1931 when the business was formed by current director Peter Little’s grandfather along with TP Topping.
William McFarland of Eadie McFarland of Eadie, McFarland and Co confirmed that the site is now sold. “We are pleased to advise that this has been sold to a local private developer. There are no preferred development proposals, however we are in discussions with a number of potential end users for parts of this High profile site.”
