Leading commercial property agency Lisney has been appointed to sell or let Action Cancer House in south Belfast.

The period property, located on Marlborough Park and fronting the Malone Road, has come to the market due to the planned relocation of the Action Cancer charity to new premises in spring 2018.

Built in 1917, the property has been occupied by Action Cancer since 1975 for use as the charity’s breast screening clinic, therapeutic support centre and headquarters.

Initially a detached residential property, the building was very substantially but sympathetically extended at the start of the millennium to accommodate the growing demand for the charity’s Life Saving and Supporting services.

Andrew Gawley, Associate Director at Lisney, said:

“Action Cancer House has a prominent location in one of the most sought-after areas of Belfast.

“The building is suitable for a wide range of uses – including as offices, clinic, day care facility and nursery – subject to the necessary consents being awarded.

“Within close proximity to Balmoral Avenue and the M1 Motorway network, it enjoys ease of access to the wider province and the Republic of Ireland.

“Internally, the building is comprised of private offices, meeting rooms, boardroom, consulting rooms, a clinic, reception, kitchen and toilet facilities.

“The property further benefits from a lift, alarm system, CCTV and a solar panel providing hot water.”

The total site covers 0.3 acres, with the self-contained office and clinic comprising 5,200 sq ft of space across three floors.

The property also offers generous on-site parking, with room for 23 vehicles.

Gareth Kirk, Chief Executive, Action Cancer, said:

“Action Cancer House has come to market as we prepare to relocate to new premises next spring.

“The building has been our home for more than 40 years, during which time it has been a tremendous asset to the charity.

“Our move to new headquarters in 2018 will, however, mark the start of an exciting new chapter for Action Cancer, allowing the charity to meet an ever-increasing demand for our cancer services and programmes.”
