Jordan Auctioneers in Co Kildare are bringing to auction a 15.5ac residential farm that will be offered in lots. The auction of Manley Farm, Tullylost, Rathangan, is an executor's sale and the agents are quoting a guide price in the region of €600,000 for the entire.

The auctioneers say the land attached is of top quality, in the heart of Co Kildare just one mile outside Rathangan, five miles from Kildare and seven miles from the Curragh.

Given its location and the range of buildings included in the sale, it has obvious appeal for the equine fraternity.

The auctioneers say the farm would be ideally suited for sales prep, livery, training, show jumping and eventing.

The house is in good condition throughout and extends to approximately 2,500sqft and includes a sitting room, dining room, family room, kitchen, utility and three bedrooms, two of which are en suite.

The adjacent yard has a separate entrance and comes with a five-unit automatic walker, inner year with six boxes, tack room, three-span hayshed with two lean-tos.

It also includes ladies' and gents' toilets, shower room, laboratory, tool shed, five American barn-style boxes and a three-span enclosed hay shed.

Full planning permission was previously granted for two-storey staff accommodation and offices in the yard.

The auctioneers say this could also make an ideal residence subject to planning.

The land lies directly behind the existing bungalow and has good road frontage.

The entire is currently in grass and of high quality suitable for arable or, being fully fenced, grazing purposes.

Lot one comprises the bungalow and one acre and is guided at €275,000. The yard and 14.5ac that makes up lot two is guided at €325,000. Lot three is the entire.
