A well-developed equestrian property is on the market outside Athy in Co Kildare.
Bert House Stud consists of a fine yard, with staff accommodation standing on 58 acres. This is good-quality land with no waste.
The property is situated beside the village of Kilberry, making it convenient to the M7 at Monasterevin and the M9 at Ballitore, Exit 3.
The yard has 58 boxes in a rectangular square yard with a six-unit automatic walker, a circular sand gallop, an office, two machinery/hay sheds with lean-tos and concrete floors, two foaling boxes, a tack and feed house and various other facilities.
The staff accommodation includes two self-contained single-storey semi-detached cottages, three apartments and a canteen.
The lands are all in permanent pasture, well fenced with good shelter and piped water. There is extensive frontage on the River Barrow but the land is well above the river. This wider area has a lot of tillage farming.
The property is on offer from Jordan Town & Country Estate Agents by private treaty with an asking price of €1.3m. The agent states that Bert House Stud is ideal as a stud farm but would suit a sport horse enthusiast, as sales preparation and a racing yard.
