Agricultural Land Report
Agricultural land on the Wicklow/Kildare border made just under €11,000/acre when it went for auction last Thursday, September 22nd, 2022.
Jordan Auctioneers guided the land, which extends to 43-acres or 17.36ha, at Newtown, Hollywood, Co Wicklow at €430,000 ahead of the public auction.
The firm’s selling agent, Clive Kavanagh, explained that the single block of land is currently in nine divisions and has natural boundaries and hedgerows throughout.
It also boasts “great” views from the lands towards the Wicklow Mountains. He suggested that the property would make “an ideal” site for a residence, subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission.
The property is approximately 4km from Hollywood and the N18, while it is 5km from Ballymore Eustace, while it is 7km from Dunlavis and 12km from Blessington.
Following the auction, Kavanagh said:
“Before a small but lively attendance, we successfully sold a block of 43-acres by public auction on Thursday last for €465,000, equating to just short of €11,000 per acre.”
“The land is generally good quality, in 9 divisions with lovely mature hedgerows and extensive road frontage.”
“The purchaser is believed to be from the wider area, and there are two disappointed under bidders actively looking for something else in the general area.”
