Published 13/09/2011 | 05:00
An exquisite 125ac residential stud farm located in Laois and bordering the counties of Carlow and Kildare is sure to draw attention from equestrian circles and the broader farming sector.
Coming with a unique two-storey thatched residence and a fully equipped stable yard, the property will be auctioned early next month and has a guide price of Â¤10,000/ac.
Located at Tirernam, Ballickmoyler, the property is around six miles from both Carlow town and Athy, Co Kildare.
Herbage Stud Farm is set on top quality agricultural land.
The house and yard are approached by a private Tarmac avenue with electric gates.
The property has been owned by the same family for more than 100 years and, with care and attention, was maintained and developed by them, which is reflected in the excellent facilities and the farm's serious equestrian reputation.
In that regard, Herbage has a tremendous record in breeding and raising winners. Among the successes are a number of Black Type horses: Alinga, Colourfast, Indaba, Fifth Commandment, Ezalli, Zacynthus, and Ezima, the well-known Group 2 winner.
Other Herbage stars, Spirit Danone and Memen, are also at Group level in Germany and the USA respectively.
