Kilgraney Stables, located four miles from both Bagenalstown and Borris in Co Carlow, is likely to attract the attention of both equestrian and agricultural buyers.

The property is currently set up as a 10-stable equestrian yard but has both land and farm buildings that will appeal to farmers.

It consists of a three-bedroom bungalow set on eight acres of land, as well as numerous buildings and a sand arena for equestrian use.

The main stable block is set up in an American barn-style, with 10 looseboxes and storage space all contained under one roof. Adjacent to the stable block is a three-span haybarn with lean-to.

The sand arena measures around 60m by 40m in size and is regularly used by the current owners for jump schooling horses.

Potential equestrian buyers will be interested to know that there may also be free access to a second sand arena on the adjacent property.

The eight acres of land have been divided into three paddocks, all of which have roadside access and are fenced with post-and-rail fencing.

The bungalow residence has been totally refurbished on the inside within the past year and the accommodation opens with an entrance hallway with newly installed cherry timber flooring.

All three bedrooms have been fitted with new cherry timber flooring and the accommodation is completed by a tiled family bathroom.

In terms of location, Kilgraney Stables is in the heart of horse racing and breeding country, as well as sport horse country. Gowran Park is six miles away, while Goresbridge Horse Sales is just three miles away.

Kilgraney Stables is being offered for sale by private treaty.
