Jordan Auctioneers sold what it described as a “smashing” 12.55-acre parcel of land just outside Castledermot, Co Kildare, by public auction on Tuesday, September 20th, 2022, for €330,000.
Ahead of the sale, selling agent, Clive Kavanagh explained that the property, in its entirety, comprised “top quality land, ideal for any number of uses”.
The land, he explained, is slightly elevated, is currently in stubble and boasts “loving views in all directions”. “The entire would make an ideal site for a residence subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission,” he added.
He guided the property – which is in the south of the county and is circa 1km outside Castledermot, on the R418 towards Kilkea – at €15,000/acre.
According to the firm, bidding opened at €170,000, and three bidders battled it out at Keadeen Hotel, Newbridge.
The firm placed the property on the market with the auctioneer accepting several more bids before the gavel fell for a figure equating to just over €26,000 per acre. The property firm understands that the purchaser is based locally.
Clive Kavanagh, selling agent, reported that “the top-quality land attracted strong interest from the outset of the sale”.
“This was from a mixture of local-based parties and some investors looking for a safe place to put money in view of the general global uncertainty,” he added.
