A 57.97-acre land holding in Ashford, County Wicklow, has been placed on the market by Savills Ireland with a guide price of €13.5m.
The lands are situated in a sought after residential location on the eastern side of Ashford Village, between the R772 road and the M11 Motorway – approximately 44km south of Dublin City Centre and 6km north west of Wicklow Town.
The majority of lands are located within the boundary of the Ashford Town Plan 2016 – 2022, with approximately 28.5 acres zoned for residential development, and a further 18.63 acres zoned for strategic land reserves. A feasibility study prepared by Darmody Architecture outlines the potential – subject to planning permission – for a development comprising 343 houses.
The lands previously formed part of the curtilage of Inchanappa House – a protected structure – which does not form part of the sale. Access to the lands is from the R772 main road which travels through Ashford village. A secondary access point is located on the southern boundary of the site.
