Property Description

Sleighduff is a unique equestrian property with an attractive situation, extending to about 37 acres.

Sleighduff is a unique equestrian property with an attractive situation, extending to about 37 acres. It includes a traditional farmhouse in need of renovation with magnificent views over the town of Arklow and beyond to the Irish Sea. The key feature of the property is the substantial equestrian facility including an indoor arena and stables. The land lies in a single block and provides quality grazing.

The farmhouse is accessed through an electric-gated, bell-mouthed entrance with stone piers via a hardcore, tree-lined driveway with a stone wall on either side. The driveway leads to the farmhouse which has an elevated, south easterly-facing position. The house has accommodation over two storeys as laid out on the accompanying plans. It is in need of complete renovation and redecoration.

There is a garden in front of the house.

There is a range of traditional outbuildings, a Dutch barn and extensive areas of hard standing.

Equestrian Facility
The key asset at Sleighduff is the substantial equestrian facility which is under a single roof. It includes an indoor arena which is in 11 bays of steel portal frame construction beneath a double hip, insulated roof with a rubber and sand surface. There is a 2 metre high glass perimeter over kicking boards. The arena can be accessed directly from the stables or through up and over roller shutter doors. There is a raised viewing area between the arena and the stables.

Adjoining the indoor arena is the stable block which is in 7 bays of steel portal frame construction. A notable feature is the exterior hewn stone wall. It includes 31 Monarch stables of varying sizes, constructed in an Elizabethan/Victorian style and with cherry wood cladding in brass finishes. It has a concrete floor. There are two wash bays and various stores. A number of the stables have doors which provide direct external access.

A feature is the ample natural light throughout the building.

There are hard-core aprons surrounding the building.

The gently undulating land lies in a single block and is presently in grass. It is divided into a number of enclosures and a feature is the mature hedging. There are 8 turnout paddocks enclosed by post and rail fences.
