A 40.5ac block of land has just come to the market at Johnstownbridge village in Co Kildare. The land, at Gorteen, is less than 500m from the village centre.

The auctioneer handling the sale is Edward Carey based in Enfield. He notes that the proximity of the farm to Johnstownbridge means it is attracting interest for its long-term development potential.

The entrance to the land is only 300m from the current development boundary for Johnstownbridge. It’s a couple of minutes from the M4 Junction 9 at Enfield. The village is expanding and a very quick commute to Dublin.

The land, currently in grass, has been very well farmed by the current owners and is laid out in a number of evenly sized paddocks, with a water supply to each. Fencing on the land has been carried out by a professional fencing contractor. The land in this area is good quality.

Edward Carey is offering the property for online auction through the Offr platform on Wednesday 5 May at 2.30pm. He is guiding the holding at €500,000, or €12,500/ac. Registration in advance is necessary to take part in the auction.
