DescriptionThe property is a substantial land holding extending to approximately 17 hectares (42 acres) that has the benefit of considerable frontage to two roads. There is approximately 600m of road frontage along the northern boundary while there is just under 300m of road frontage along the southern boundary.
The land, which is currently laid out in pasture, is top quality agricultural farmland and comprises a number of smaller parcels of land with mature trees and hedgerows acting as natural boundaries. Mature one off detached houses in a linear formation bound the land on its southern aspect while large detached dwelling bounds the land to the north.
While unzoned at present there may be some development opportunity in the future given the lands proximity to the city centre.
