Stud farm a winner
With the rumour mill rife in Co Limerick that a Middle Eastern buyer recently snapped up a substantial farm in the county, Newbridge auctioneer Paddy Jordan will be hoping for a buyer of similar means in Co Kildare.
Mr Jordan is handling the sale of a high class, 110ac non-residential stud farm close to Kildare town, which is to be sold at auction with a guide price of €1.32m or €12,000/ac.
Located at Kilnagornan, just outside Kildare town and opposite Troytown Veterinary Hospital, the farm comes with extensive top-of-the-range equestrian facilities on four yards. It is currently used as an isolation and pre-training facility by renowned trainer John Oxx and would be ideal for development as a private stud.
The holding is described as of the highest quality land laid out in one block. It has 12 paddocks, all with good thorn hedges and some post-and-rail fencing providing great shelter. There is piped water, both mains and private supply, to all paddocks while an internal road system connects all yards.
According to Mr Jordan, there is "absolutely no waste whatsoever" on the property, which would be suitable for tillage, horses or livestock.
The land has been lightly grazed with bloodstock and followed by cattle from a local dairy farm so is in great heart.
The extensive equestrian facilities on the farm are set on four different yards: a main yard, a secondary yard and two isolation yards.
