According to Quinn Property, this “extensive holding” is located 300m off the R756 the Hollywood/Laragh road, 5km east of Hollywood and the N81, which will take you to the M50 in “comfortable time”.

This holding is 20km west of Laragh, 14km south of Blessington, 18km north of Baltinglass and 40km from Dublin City.

“It is in a picturesque part of west Wicklow, between the Wicklow mountains and the Blessington Lakes, it has extensive frontage onto the Kings River a tributary of the River Liffey.”

Residence and outbuildings

The property is in one large block, approached over a hard-core access laneway, with the residence located 400m back from the public road.

The residence is a stone-built single-storey farmhouse which has been unoccupied for several years and comprises of three rooms, in need of complete renovation.

“It is set in an idyllic location surrounded by mature trees making it an ideal location for a permanent residence or holiday home.”

There are a number of stone outbuildings adjacent to the house, again in need of renovation, the selling agent noted.

The land is generally of level nature with the majority currently in permanent pasture and has been organically farmed for generations.

It is laid out in a number of suitable divisions with a natural water supply and electricity on site. The farm benefits from over 1km frontage onto the Kings River, a tributary of the Liffey and has extensive sand deposits.

“Given its wonderful location between the Wicklow Mountains and the Blessington Lakes, it has tremendous potential for tourism.”

“This is an extensive property, suitable for dry stock farming, forestry, or many other uses.” the selling agent concluded.
