58ac stud farm with ‘top-quality land and no waste’ on the market

Paddy Jordan of Jordan Town & Country Estate Agents has been instructed in the sale of the well-known Bert House Stud just outside of Athy in Co. Kildare.

The property stands on 58ac (23.47ha) and is all ‘top-quality land with no waste’ and is predominantly limestone.

The farm is situated beside the village of Kilberry and convenient to the M7 at Monasterevin which will bring you to Dublin and its International Airport, and the M9 at Ballitore Exit 3 which will bring you to Waterford.

Amenities in the area include hunting with the Kildares and Carlows and the South Counties, all within boxing distance. Racing is nearby in the Curragh, Naas, Punchestown and Leopardstown.

Permanent pasture

Bert House Stud is an ideal stud farm, but it would be most suitable for a sport horse enthusiast, sales prep and racing yard.

In all there are 58 boxes in a rectangular square yard with automatic walker; a sand gallop; and plenty of staff accommodation.

The yard includes:

  • A six-unit automatic horse walker;
  • A circular sand gallop;
  • Two hay/machinery barns with lean-tos off;
  • A grooms canteen;
  • Two foaling boxes;
  • A tack room; and
  • A feed house

The lands are all in permanent pasture, and the paddocks are well fenced with good shelter and piped water.

The accommodation includes:

  • Two self-contained, single-storey, semi-detached cottages;
  • Three apartments;
  • A canteen; and
  • An office.

The stud farm is for sale by private treaty. Paddy Jordan commented that: “Due to its location and with all the ancillary facilities it is ideal for sales prep, a racing yard or for the sport horse enthusiast.”

The property is on offer at €1.3 million, and viewing is strictly by appointment.
