North Kildare Land, particularly on the border with Meath, has made headlines in recent months. A number of properties for sale in the area should make for interesting sales in the coming weeks.
An 80ac plot bordering the Kilcock development boundary will generate interest for business, agriculture and investment. On the Maynooth side of town there is grazing, farming for bioenergy crops, and forestry. The sale is led by Coonans of Maynooth for an amount of over €1.5m or over €18,750/ac.
The land is approximately 300-400m from the famous Moyglare Stud Farm and has over 875m of road fronting along the Moyglare Road and fronting to the River Rye.
The farm currently has four fields, one with winter corn, one with miscanthus and two with grass. An 11.5 ac woodland plantation consisting primarily of beech and ash trees that was planted approximately 20 years ago.
The property also has significant future “hope value” due to its proximity to the Kilcock development boundary. Auctioneer Will Coonan says it’s rare to find a block of farmland this size for sale in the area. He anticipates great interest. The Newtownmoyaghy Farm will be auctioned to the public on Wednesday 20th July at 3pm at the Glenroyal Hotel, Maynooth.
In North Kildare, a 39ac development in Moyvalley on the border of Kildare and Meath is being sold in lots when it comes to auction with a target price of €650,000. The property is 7 km from Enfield and 12 km from Kinnegad and close to the M6 and M4 motorways.
All in one block the site has an extensive frontage which extends between 300 and 400m onto the R148 and a side road. The land is currently grass covered and bordered by beautiful mature hedges and natural trees providing plenty of shelter.
According to Paddy Jordan of sales agents Jordan Auctioneers, the land is mostly good with a small section that could use drainage and reclamation.
The place is offered for sale in two lots consisting of the residence on 5ac and a lot consisting of c34ac land.
The house is a small Ro-Fab style detached cottage spread over approximately 785 sq ft with accommodation comprising a kitchen, living room, bathroom and three bedrooms. Outside there is a large detached garage and an old courtyard with a two pillar barn and shelter and some run down shops. This lot on 5ac is listed at €275,000.
The non-residential property, which extends to 34ac, fronts approximately 300m to the R418 with a gate to a local road on the eastern boundary. The land is fully grassed and divided into large fields, and according to the auctioneers, the land is suitable for a number of farms. This section is listed at €375,000.
The property will be sold in a hybrid public and online auction on Thursday 28 July at 3pm at Lawlor’s Hotel, Naas.
To the south east, Dawsons of Tullow is handling the sale of 50 acres of prime farmland at Browneshill on the outskirts of Carlow. It is listed at €15,000 to €20,000/ac prior to the auction.
Located 1.5 miles from Carlow, the land was originally part of the adjacent Browneshill estate and a Land Commission farm to the side. Currently in permanent pasture, it is laid out in two sections with reasonable access for machinery and services from a local road. While the proximity to the city may indicate future development potential, auctioneer John Dawson is clear that it will be sold as agricultural land. The place will be auctioned at 3pm on Wednesday 20th July at the Seven Oaks Hotel, Carlow.
