The holding has a lengthy association with horse training and racing.

The property has 27 loose boxes behind the house. They are in good structural condition.

The land is divided into paddocks with good shelter.

The location places it five minutes from the Curragh racecourse, five minutes from the M7 motorway at junction 12 and also near the M9 motorway at Kilcullen.

Newbridge is 3km away, Kilcullen 3km and Kildare town 4km.

The house was built around the early 1900s. It is spacious at 2,443 square feet (227 square metres).

The house was built in the early 1900s and now needs full restoration.

Downstairs are a drawing room, dining room, kitchen and office. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, one with a dressing room.
