Joint agents Goffs Country and Coonan Real Estate Alliance are to auction Loughtown Stud, an impressive 171-acre estate that is steeped in equine history.
The stud was the former home of renowned stallions such as Archive (sire of Arkle), Red God, Larkspur, Raise you Ten, and Ballad Rock.
Loughtown is also the birthplace of the Irish Derby and St Ledger winner Ragusa.
Located just 7km between Clane and Kilcock, and just 10 minutes from the M4, this magnificent property is one of Ireland's finest studs.
In the heart of Co Kildare, Loughtown Stud comprises 171-acres of top quality limestone land, a crucial factor for building strong bones and good health in horses.
Approached by a leafy, tree-lined avenue, Loughtown has a certain air of grandeur about it. Included in the property is a large two-storey period residence known as the manager's residence, a beautiful ranch-style single-story home for the owners, two staff apartments, stabling, 54 boxes, and a wide range of outbuildings.
All three residential properties on the stud are presented in very good condition. The two-storey stone-cut manager's house is an elegant 19th century farmhouse, with four bedrooms, kitchen, living and dining rooms.
The owner's ranch-style stone property is equally impressive and is surrounded by lovely gardens.
Staff accommodation comprises a one-bed, and two-bed apartment over the stables, and again these are selling in walk-in condition.
The land is in two divisions of almost equal size, and is accessed via a roadway between both sides. Residential accommodation is to one side of the land, while the other side houses a large American-style barn.
The auction will take place on June 29, with an AMV of €4.5m.
