Description

GRANGECON DEMESNE and STUD, GRANGECON, COUNTY WICKLOW, IRELAND 

An historic demesne estate complete with superb equestrian facilities, an exceptional breeding record for racehorses and a charming Tudor residence. In all about 256 acres or 103 hectares.

One of the great estates in county Wicklow with a rich and colourful history and a proven equestrian provenance, all in a highly desirable position just 32 miles or 56 km south of Dublin city and about 1 hour’s drive of Dublin International airport. The charming Tudor residence is the centerpiece of the estate and enjoys a delightful position on the eastern reaches of a fertile valley glen and on the periphery of picturesque Grangecon village. The Wicklow Mountains are to the east, while to the west lie the equestrian lands of Kildare.

The estate has a picture postcard quality with the rolling parkland including numerous and impressive ancient trees.  Immaculately maintained rubble stone walls and timber post and rail fencing form field boundaries and add to the fine spectacle. Quite remarkably, given the close proximity to Dublin, the local area has maintained a pleasant rural aspect. The area is noted for its rich fertile lands and equestrianism, most especially bloodstock activity including the breeding and training of racehorses. The renowned horse breeder David Nagle’s Barronstown Stud neighbours the estate and has produced in excess of 20 Gr.1 winners. 

In the Tudor style the house retains lots of character with tall and highly ornate brick chimney stacks, leaded windows and a part-timbered and part-castellated exterior. In part dating back to the Tudor date 1576 the house was largely altered in the 20th century to now present a an up-to-date home of manageable scale and presented in excellent condition following extensive upgrading works in recent years. The accommodation within the house extends to some 12,905 square feet or 1,199 square metres and includes 5 principal bedroom suites with an adjoining apartment providing an additional 2 bedrooms. The accommodation within the overall estate extends to some 16,888 square feet or 1,569 square metres with a Manager’s House, 3 Lodges and a groom’s apartment augmenting the main house accommodation. The three gate lodges flank the three gated entrances and are in good condition. The estate is offered for sale with the main house fully furnished and the stud equipment and farm machinery included (further information available).

The stud has superb equestrian facilities and it lies within a valley famed for breeding Gr. 1 winners. It has enjoyed terrific success with its graduates on the racetrack worldwide.

The Curragh racecourse is between 25 to 30 minutes driving distance (14.6 miles or 23.5 km), with Kilcullen less than a 20 minute drive. Producing thoroughbred horses to race and sell Grangecon Stud must rank as one of the most desirable of its kind. It benefits from an unrivalled location being a neighbour to the classic producing Barronstown Stud and is within easy reach of Gilltown, New Abbey, Kildangan and the Irish National Stud, all perceived as iconic farms throughout the thoroughbred industry with unequalled reputations for excellence. Impressive and superbly laid out, the farm ticks every box – top class grazing land, excellent facilities, beautiful, mature, deciduous trees and magnificent hedgerows that provide valued shelter for livestock. Add to this the wonderful history as a nursery for thoroughbred excellence. 

The lands are farmed using organic fertilizers. The river Griese, a tributary of the River Barrow, forms part of the estate boundary and offers single bank fishing. The lake within the estate has a strong fishing provenance.  

Dublin City Centre 34 miles or 55.7 km, Dunlavin town 4.3 miles or 7 km, Kildare town (train and boutique shopping) 16 miles or 26 km. M9 motorway (nearest intersection) 9.5 miles or 15.3 km.
