There is an ongoing trade in smaller stud farms across the country and particularly in Greater Dublin. These stocks within earshot of the capital attract a lot of attention.
Killargan Stud is a 36ac non-residential farm with a good riding stables at Drumlargan near Kilcock on the Meath side of the Kildare border. Described by Philip Byrne of Coonans, Maynooth as a lovely compact property for equestrians, the site has some residential potential. It is to be auctioned publicly at a target price of 600,000 euros.
The property is approximately 4 km from Summerhill, 8 km from Kilcock and 4 km from the M4 motorway. Dublin is 40 minutes away. It has what it takes to make a great base for a family with horseback riding interests.
Killargan has a long history of horse breeding and the equestrian facilities reflect this. Arranged around an American barn, they include nine mare and foal stalls, as well as a treatment area and tack room. Also on the farm are an isolation barn, a 45m x 25m clay arena with fiber sand and rubber surface, a lunging ring, a loading ramp and a machine shed.
The 36ac land to the rear of the yard is all grass and laid out in a number of convenient subdivisions. Described by Mr. Byrne as first class, free-draining terrain suitable for any farming operation, the paddocks are fenced with stud railings and a mature hawthorn hedge. The floor is slightly elevated overlooking the surrounding countryside.
According to the auctioneer, a portion of the lot facing the public road could have location potential, subject to the necessary planning permission.
The property will go up for public auction on Wednesday 11th May at 3pm at The Glenroyal Hotel Maynooth.
On the same day and at the same location, Coonans is completing the sale of another 36ac interest in the same area. The non-residential building comes without farm buildings and is estimated at €325,000.
The lands are located at Ballinakill, Newtown, Kilcock on the Kildare side of the county line and are 3km from Enfield and 8km from Kilcock. At the moment they are all in the grass and are described by Philip Byrne as good agricultural soil in a heavily farmed area.
Although the operation has limited street frontage, Mr. Byrne believes that street access offers opportunities for property locations. He expects interest from agricultural and non-agricultural customers.
