Former airfield on 240ac near Brittas Bay for sale
A large 240ac coastal farm at Ardanairy, Brittas in Co Wicklow that served as an airfield and a tillage farm is for sale by auction with a guide price of €1.309m.
The place was on the private treaty market until recently.
Located 3km from Junction 19 off the M11 motorway at Jack White’s Cross, the farm is 15km from Wicklow town, 11km from Arklow and 40km from Gorey.
The holding is bisected by the R750, giving it extensive frontage on two sides.
Adjoining the European Golf Course, the 240ac was put together by a developer with plans to build a hotel, golf resort and self-catering accommodation on the property.
In a previous existence the farm hosted an airfield, and the one-time hangar is now used for livestock housing and fodder storage.
The building is located on a 109ac section nearest the sea that also has extensive road frontage onto the R750.
The section is laid out in eight fields that could do with some TLC and good husbandry but with great potential.
