There is a steady stream of Leinster land coming on to the market at the moment.
Typical of the properties finding their way on to the auctioneer's book is a 39ac parcel of ground located at Tipper South, Naas, 3km from the town and 1.5km from Punchestown.
It will come to auction at Killashee House Hotel, Killashee, at 3pm on May 9, with a guide of €500,000 or almost €13,000/ac.
Laid out in four main divisions, the ground is described by auctioneer Brian Farrell as good quality grazing land.
It comes with extensive road frontage extending to 550m on to the Blessington road and 250m onto the Tipper road.
The location of this land makes it suitable as a potential residential holding or holdings, subject to the necessary planning.
Alternatively, the property could become a fine addition to an existing holding.
Meanwhile, just over a week later, Brian Farrell will bring a 15ac piece of ground to auction at the Keadeen Hotel, Newbridge.
This land is located at Ballymount, Colbinstown, Co Kildare, about 8kms from Kilcullen and 22kms from Naas, very close to the old N9.
This attractive parcel comes with a guide price of €225,000 or €15,000/ac.
The lands are on an elevated site giving great views of the surrounding countryside and are laid out in three divisions with road frontage onto a cul-de-sac.
Described by Brian Farrell as top quality ground, two divisions are in grass, while a third is currently under tillage.
This property could be developed into a residential smallholding, given the requisite planning permission, or could be a profitable addition to an existing farm.
The auction will take place at the Keadeen Hotel, Newbridge on May 15 at 3pm.
