Full Description

Gilltown is approx. 2.5km south of Kilcullen and the M9 Motorway (Exit 2).  The surrounding area is predominantly agricultural interspersed with one off rural housing along main road frontages and  all amenities are within easy driving distance in Kilcullen which acts as a service centre for its rural hinterland and as a growing commuter population to the nearby towns of  Naas and Newbridge as well as Dublin City.

The property comprises an irregularly shaped land holding of approx.15.58 hectares (38.5 acres) with road frontage of approx. 75m to the adjoining road along the eastern boundary.

The lands offer potential for the development of a residence subject to planning permission.  This is a rural area and intending purchasers are advised to consult with Kildare County Council in respect of their current rural settlement policies.
