The historical town of Leixlip is known for many things. As a frontier town, it lies on the border of Dublin and Kildare in an exceptional location. A mere twenty minutes from Dublin airport and a short drive or commute to Dublin City Centre, Leixlip gives access to everything the city has to offer with the luxury of an easy retreat home. Literally translated as Salmon Leap, the area is known for its stunning river walks. It has an abundance of natural beauty including The Liffey and The Rye and walks along The Royal Canal are a must. The home of Arthur Guinness’s first brewery, Leixlip was built around Leixlip Castle and the beautiful stone building is very much part of the town’s heritage.
Here, on the Maynooth side of the town, a superb investment opportunity has recently come to the market with Coonan Property. Hillford House is a period style residence set within very mature grounds. The private, tree lined site contains approximately 1 acre of land which includes outbuildings and the impressive house itself. Set over three levels, the property extends to approx. 3,355 sq.ft.(312 sq.m.) and once given the renovation and rejuvenations it needs, would make a simply stunning residence. Alternatively, given the size of the lot, there is excellent developmental prospects here subject to planning with the zoning objective for “residential” in place.
With direct access to the Maynooth Road, this site is in the perfect location. Bus and rail stops are literally at your fingertips and the onward commute is within easy reach. Both the M4 and M50 are minutes away. The bustling town has every amenity you would need. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, cafes, hotels, and a great selection of schools within the locality. Leixlip is also neighbour to the University town of Maynooth and all it has to offer. The chance to invest in this kind of potential does not come along every day.
Will Coonan comments, “The chance to invest in this kind of potential does not come along every day” and “its positon beside Louisa Bridge train station and Intel adds an extra element of attraction”.
The property comes to the market and is for sale by Private Treaty with an asking price of €825,000.
