According to the firm’s Josh Pim, this is an “extensive and diversified” mixed arable and livestock farm all contained in a continuous block.
The farm centres around a “comfortable” farm bungalow – which boasts expansive views over the rolling Wicklow countryside – and a “good” range of farm buildings.
The E1 BER-rated Kilnamnagh bungalow is what the agent described as a “charming” farm cottage of redbrick and concrete construction under a pitched slated roof.
The cottage commands an elevated, south-facing position with “beautiful” views over the surrounding mature countryside.
The “light-filled” accommodation, extending to c. 1,054 square feet in total, was built in 1974.
The bungalow has been equipped with modern refurbishments in recent years.

A key feature of the farm is the land, including about 170-acres of ploughable ground, which is in “excellent heart” and “well-tended” by the current owner.
According to the firm, the free-draining land at Kilnamanagh is “extremely accessible” for heavy machinery and also includes excellent internal tracks.
Furthermore, the land is in an area renowned for its productive farmland. As such, grain merchants, agricultural machinery suppliers and livestock marts serve it.
The selling agent said:
“The current owner has made substantial investment and improvements to the land and equestrian element of the farm in recent years, in particular to the reseeding of land, conversion of outbuildings to stables and development of two sand arenas.”
“The farm has consistently produced good yielding cereal crops with the present cropping comprising winter wheat, maize, and winter barley.”
