Excellent location adjoining Gilltown Stud and close to Kilcullen
The lands are located at Gilltown close to Kilcullen and opposite the world renowned Gilltown Stud owned by the Aga Khan. Kilcullen is on the River Liffey about 6km from the Curragh, the centre of Ireland’s horse racing industry and is situated beside the Dublin to Waterford (M9) motorway between Naas and Kilkenny. Gilltown and the adjoining Sallymount stud cover approximately 1,250 acres and are an important part of Ireland’s national heritage and designed to meet the demands of a 21st century breeding establishment. Gilltown is a typical Anglo Irish estate and was built in Georgian style in the 18th century and are home to a large variety of wildlife and beautiful oak trees and oak avenue.
Gilltown is approx. 2.5km south of Kilcullen and the M9 Motorway (Exit 2). The surrounding area is predominantly agricultural interspersed with one off rural housing along main road frontages and all amenities are within easy driving distance in Kilcullen which acts as a service centre for its rural hinterland and as a growing commuter population to the nearby towns of Naas and Newbridge as well as Dublin City.
The property comprises an irregularly shaped land holding of approx.15.58 hectares (38.5 acres) with road frontage of approx. 75m to the adjoining road along the eastern boundary.
The majority of the lands, which are generally level topographically, are under permanent pasture with approx. 2 hectares (4.9 acres) of a semi-mature plantation (mixed spruce and hardwoods). The land which is laid out in 4 divisions is of good quality with post and rail fencing, mature hedging and trees. Access to the lands will be provided through the granting of a right of way over part of the adjoining driveway leading to the residence next door.
The lands offer potential for the development of a residence subject to planning permission. This is a rural area and intending purchasers are advised to consult with Kildare County Council in respect of their current rural settlement policies.
