Kildare tillage land is always prized and a 93ac farm adjacent to Donadea National Forest Park will be sure to attract significant attention from the tillage community.

The farm is for sale by private treaty and comes with a derelict two-storey residence and courtyard-style stable-yard with full planning permission to restore the residence and yard. Sherry FitzGerald O'Reilly is guiding the property at €1.2m or €12,900/ac.

'Beech Grove', Dunmurragh Hill, is located 9km from Clane on the R403 Staplestown to Donadea road and the lands are currently all in tillage. According to Gero Gannon of Clane auctioneers, Sherry FitzGerald O'Reilly, the lands are currently farmed by the owner and are of top quality and in one division. There is 565m of road frontage, which lends the property to subdivision and makes it suitable for further planning or the provision of multiple access points from the public road for intensive tillage users.

There is full planning permission from Kildare County Council for the restoration of the residence, the courtyard and the construction of a stable block. Mr Gannon says that the vendors are willing to divide the property into lots to take account of the customer who has an interest in land and the customer with an interest in developing the buildings with some land. The house and 51ac could form one lot with 42ac making up the other.

Mr Gannon believes that along with its agricultural value this property has great potential as a residential property and as an equestrian property.
