Laytown land will attract the punters

A 119-acre non-residential land holding has come to the market in Laytown, Co Meath.

Knight Frank, who are acting as agents for the sale, claim the holding represents a "unique opportunity to acquire residentially zoned land at agricultural prices".

The holding is offered for sale through private treaty and sub-division will be considered. The agents are guiding a purchase price of €15,000 per acre.

Currently in tillage, the holding comprises "excellent quality" agricultural land which is laid out in six divisions and benefits from about 1.2km of road frontage onto the R150 to the south and the Minnistown Road to the west.

Knight Frank believes that while the holding will attract significant interest from farmers, the Laytown Local Area Plan 2005 has zoned the land under Objective A4: "To provide for new residential communities" which should attract parties with a long- term development view.

In relation to location, the holding is ideally positioned adjoining the Laytown Train Station which provides easy access to Dublin and Drogheda. The M1 Motorway is within 7km.

Knight Frank's Evan Lonergan said there was "strong interest" in this "top quality" land with development potential.

The lands are superbly located adjoining the town and represent an excellent long term investment," commented Mr Lonergan.
