54 ac



  • Sale Type: For Sale by Private Treaty
  • Overall Floor Area: 54 ac
**Online Auction on 27th August 2021 at 12:00 via Offr** Outstanding ring-fenced block of productive tillage land The Land at Fontstown extends to about 54 acres of excellent tillage land and lies within a ringfenced boundary. Positioned between Athy and Kildare Town, the land is in a prime location and well serviced for agricultural activity. A key feature of the land is its ability to grow a wide range of crops including, in recent years, winter barley and spring barley. The land is divided into a number of enclosures suitable for modern day agriculture. Mature hedging provides shelter. The Land at Fontstown is accessed via the R415 at the north-easterly boundary through double gates, suitable for heavy machinery. With a westerly elevation, the predominantly level topography rises from about 70 metres (229 feet) above sea level on the westerly boundary to a high point at the easterly boundary of about 91 metres (298 feet) above sea level. It has approximately 200m of road frontage. The land consists of soils from the Fontstown Series. These soils have a wide use range. Together with the soils of the Athy Complex, they are largely responsible for South Kildare' s reputation as a tillage area. Winter barley and spring barley have been grown in the 2021 season.
