When it comes to building a house from scratch, there's nobody more qualified to know what kind of property would suit best than the person who truly understands the land around it.

This was the case on a site close to Dunlavin in Kildare. Local man Richard O'Toole had lived on the land for decades with his family when they owned Ballintaggart House and stud farm in Colbinstown.

In 2006, O'Toole and his family made the decision to sell the farm and main residence. It was snapped up by property tycoon Paul Newman for €13m soon after going to the market. The O'Tooles held on to some of it for future use.
