Compact equestrian base guided at €1.25m
One of the best-equipped small stud farms to come on the market in a while is to be sold by private treaty. The 39ac Knightfield Stud in Kildare comes with an equestrian centre, an indoor arena, a stable yard, staff accommodation and an outdoor arena. It can be sold in lots or as an entire with a guide price of €1.25m.
Located in Co Kildare 3km from Straffan, 6km from Maynooth and 20km from Dublin the place has the potential for development as a residential property thanks to the presence of staff accommodation and a derelict cottage.

The property includes a courtyard of 28 stables, an all-weather arena, tack rooms, offices, toilets and treatment areas.
The indoor arena measuring 60m x 45m includes a viewing area and a conference centre. There are three staff apartments as part of the facility, a four-bedroom unit and a pair of two-bedroom apartments.
