The start of a new year always brings with it an abundance of economic reports, outlooks and projections on future demand, supply, prices and trends. This will be evident across the entire property market including agricultural land over the next number of months and with headline grabbing prices and broad averages it can often be difficult to determine the real market fundamentals as to what is actually happening.


In Jordan Auctioneers our practice is primarily based in the Leinster Region and there are obvious variations in the price of land from County to County. Applying an average rate across an entire region can be very simplistic and although it can be referred to as a benchmark the variations on same can be substantial. We see little merit in recording marginal percentage increases or decreases as the market is entirely unique to each property and overall sentiment / trends provides a more useful insight into the sector.


2018 was a difficult year to arrive at a market summary in terms of the land market. The season was slow to commence due to a winter and spring that never seemed to end and this pushed out land sales from the traditional starting time of March or April to May & June as some land was simply not presentable.  In addition to this the fodder crisis meant both buyers and sellers were more focussed on day to day survival than making key long term decisions.


Reflecting on the year there were a number of extraordinary deals and prices achieved but underneath this ran a trend of slow sales, reluctant purchasers and uncertainty. Our experience in 2018 has shown us a number of factors effecting price and interest levels;


§  Quantum and quality of land being offered remain key factors in any sale. Large land holdings are more in demand than smaller parcels unless you have a number of adjoining farmers who are looking to expand and willing to bid against each other. Quality is always a key ingredient with land and considering the number of bad winters and summers experienced in recent times selling poor or marginal land is proving difficult.


§  Surrounding farmers – you need active farmers looking to expand their enterprise in an area where land is being offered for sale unless the quantum is of such a scale that purchasers might entirely relocate. We have noticed a considerable variation in values from the stronger farming areas to the weaker regions and this is even though the quality of offering is broadly comparable. 


§  Limited interest from business people - the interest in land from the business community has not rekindled to the level pre – Celtic Tiger. We believe this is largely a result of the change in the general type of business person now financially strong enough to purchase such an Asset. Traditionally many builders and developers had come from farming enterprises albeit in some cases small holdings but once their own business gathered momentum and they had spare funds part of their desire was to buy a farm, go back to their roots as such. When the market collapsed in the mid 2000’s many of these got into well publicised difficulty and their companies were taken over, wound up and merged into other entities.



The new generation of CEO have been brought up on a different ethos; focus is on asset return and commercial viability. The purchase of farmland never stacks on this basis and the ‘love of the land’ does not carry the weight of old.

§  Dairy farmers – the expansion of the dairy sector has been well documented and we have found that when good quality land is offered for sale adjacent to a farmer who has ambitions to expand they will generally try to deal whether this is at Auction or on a Private Treaty basis. Some farmers have fragmented holdings which makes handling stock difficult so when parcels come for sale adjacent to the main yard / milking platform they will generally try to negotiate. In some instances they have sold outfarms to facilitate the purchase.

§  Finance – for the second year running we have experienced far more transactions being dependent on finance to complete. Prior to this there seemed to be money which perhaps had been hived away in the Celtic Tiger to buy land at a future date. Up to 2016 80% of our land sales were cash based. In 2017 and 2018 we estimate this percentage to be less than 40%.  Customers tell us that while bank lending has improved this is largely to customers with very strong enterprises, low debt levels and with firm business plans.

§  Tillage & Cattle farmers remain reluctant to buy land at present, partially due to volatility in input prices, returns and uncertainty for the future. In stronger tillage areas such as south Kildare the appetite still remains to expand and many of the farms have been built over generations whereby existing debt levels are low and this gives them the potential to raise the necessary capital if required.

§    
Outlook 2019:

‘Brexit’ – the final countdown!

Nothing curtails business in general more than uncertainty and unfortunately Brexit brings all that. It is difficult to determine how the market will perform but clarity on the major issue will provide a clearer pathway for people to make some decisions. It is without doubt one of the biggest impacts to hang over the market for some time as predictions on future viability of farming enterprises will come to the fore now more than ever before with possible WTO tariffs likely to impact the agricultural sector more than any other.

Obviously confidence within an industry is an important factor in lands sales and prices but this is perhaps less so in Ireland than other European Countries. In Ireland there are many other emotive and additional factors that affect the price of land and serve to keep it at a relatively high base value. One of these is obviously the limited supply of agricultural land traded on a yearly basis (0.5% of total land area). An interesting statistic is that the average field in Ireland gets sold once every 400 years outside of a family compared to once every 70 years in France!

It is our general opinion that while prices may be volatile there will still be trade. Farmers remain hugely ambitious, prepared to work whatever hours needed to make ventures viable but informed and sensible decision making is still a key ingredient for success, now more than ever as we enter choppy waters.

Jordan Auctioneers, Newbridge successfully sold a superb block of land with an old Farmhouse and Yard on approximately 93 acres at Bogganstown, Co.Meath by Public Auction for €830,000 on Wednesday last.

Before an attendance of around 25 people the land was offered for sale in two lots but it quickly became evident that the interest was for the entire property. Bidding opened at €775,000 with two active bidders for the entire holding up to €810,000 at which stage the property was placed on the market.

Two final bidders fought it out before the hammer fell at €830,000 equating to just under €9,000 per acre. One of the strongest selling points according to Auctioneer Clive Kavanagh was ‘it’s accessibility to the M4, M3 & the Airport’.

The property included a farmhouse, in need of renovation and a number of sheds including stone outbuildings. The land was all in grass, in good sized divisions with some superb mature timber. The property was bought by a Solicitor acting in trust for an undisclosed client.

Period Residence (in need of renovation) on c. 104 Acres and Quarry with considerable reserves of limestone rock

Paddy Jordan of Jordan Town & Country Estate Agents, Newbridge, Co. Kildare together with John FitzGerald of Dougan FitzGerald, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary have just been instructed on a very interesting property called Kedrah Castle Farm in Cahir.  This farm which comprises a former dairy farm and equestrian property with a quarry includes a period residence which needs to be renovated. 

The property is laid out in 12 divisions all in permanent pasture and with the land partly post and railed with excellent shelter and internal roadways giving access to nearly all paddocks.  There are several streams ensuring never failing water supply.

The property has a large limestone quarry which is not operational at the moment but has supplied rock to Cahir By-Pass (1985 and 1990) and the M8 (2007/2008).  A professional assessment has been carried out of the quarry in November 2017 and shows to have considerable reserves of limestone rock.  The quarry has its own access road from the R639 and includes a site office and weighbridge.

The residence is an old stone and slate farmhouse extending to c. 2,400 sq.ft. and is attached to Kedrah Castle (a tower house in ruins) with some antiquities.  Whilst it needs considerable upgrading it is a wonderful setting with panoramic views of the Galtee and Comeragh Mountains.  The extensive concrete yard includes an array of buildings including 4 open sheds (2 with lean-tos) and useful workshop with inspection pit, 13 stables, 2 tack rooms, feed house, large sand arena and lunge ring.

Whilst the farm was originally run as an intensive dairy farm it has been used as an equestrian centre, including livery and has hosted many pony club camps and rallys, hunter trails, carriage driving competitions, One and Two Star Eventing Ireland Horse Trial Events.

It has also hosted an event called “Mayhem” which was a 5km cross country obstacle course and used to film “Ireland Fittest Family” an RTE TV production.  

Its location is of paramount importance just sitting off Exit 10 on the M8 Motorway, less than an hour from Cork and approximately 2 hours to Dublin.

Commenting on the sale Paddy Jordan said “that whilst the quarry does not currently have planning permission there is precedent having been used for the construction of the Cahir By-Pass and the M8 and having considerable reserves of rock much have tremendous potential because of its accessibility to the road network”.

The Joint Agents are guiding a figure in excess of €2m for the entire property which is for sale by Public Auction on Friday 19th October in the Horse & Jockey Hotel, Thurles.  If you require further information please contact Paddy Jordan on 045-433550 or John FitzGerald on 052-6121003.

Paddy Jordan of Jordan Town & Country Estate Agents has just received instructions on a most wonderful property on the Tipperary/Waterford border, the property of the late Phonsie O’Brien.  Landscape Stud includes a fine Georgian residence (c. 4,500 sq.ft.) with compact stud yard, 14 boxes, staff flat and ancillary facilities on c. 91 Acres in a wonderful mature setting overlooking the River Suir.

Landscape House was built in the 1790s and was originally part of the Mount Congreve Estate. The Congreves who had an eye for the future, planted many specimen trees that are still there to this day. Phonsie O Brien and his wife Ann bought the property in the late 1970s and have maintained the grounds in a way that the original owners would have been proud of.

Phonsie was a successful amateur rider for his brother the famous Vincent O’Brien and among many other races rode the winner of 10 Gloucester hurdles at the Cheltenham Festival.

In 1956 Phonsie took out a trainer’s licence and is best remembered for his four consecutive winners of the Galway Plate (which is a record to this day) and winning the Irish Derby with Chamour.

Phonsie dedicated the next 40 years to Landscape and turned his attention to breeding and pinhooking national hunt foals with notable success.

His second passion was fishing and many hours were spent with friends on the river telling yarns and catching salmon and trout.



The property which is a delightful Georgian residence is situated in the heart of good hunting country with the Kilkennys, Tipperarys, Waterfords and Kilmoganny Harriers all nearby.
Racing is in Clonmel, Gowran Park, Tramore, Tipperary and Cork.  Whilst there is golf in Clonmel, Mount Juliet and Waterford.  The property has a ¾ mile single bank fishing on the River Suir with plenty of trout and salmon.

The accommodation includes: entrance hall, magnificent drawingroom, study/familyroom, diningroom, kitchen office, cloakroom, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.  In addition there is a guest suite which includes a bedroom and bathroom.

The yard includes 14 boxes, a 3 bedroom staff flat, haybarns, 8 unit walker, lunging ring, walled garden and 3 isolation boxes.

The land is mainly limestone laid out in 8 paddocks all in permanent pasture with superb shelter and extensive road frontage.

Speaking after the Auction Paddy Jordan of the selling agents explained that there had been ‘exceptional interest in both holdings considering the prime location, accessibility and the quality of the lands. Most of those interested were taking a medium / long term view and included land bankers, pension funds and wealth management agencies.

Both properties were bought in trust by Solicitors acting for undisclosed clients.

58 Acres at Ladytown &
48.75 Acres Mooretown, Naas, Co. Kildare

Jordan Auctioneers, Newbridge are bringing to the market two strategic land holdings located between Naas and Newbridge extending to an area of almost 107 acres for sale by Public Auction.

Both holdings are situated on the southern side of the R445 between Naas and Newbridge. This is a pivotal location offering immediate access to the M7, M50, M8 and M9 Motorways. The Sallins Bypass and Third Lane from Naas South to the Waterford turn off/M9 which has recently commenced construction will further benefit accessibility in the area and will include the full upgrade of the Newhall Interchange.

The lands are close to a number of Industrial Parks/ Business Campuses including Naas Enterprise Park, M7 Business Park and Newhall Retail Park. Some of the leading retailers have their primary Irish distribution centres in the adjacent area including Aldi, Lidl, Primark and DSV with Kerry Group & Irish Commercials also close by at Millennium Park.

The first holding in sale comprises 48.75 acres at Mooretown which is directly opposite Naas Enterprise Park and comprises 19.73 hectares (48.75 acres) of top quality lands, all currently in arable use and laid out in 4 divisions. There is extensive frontage onto the R445 and the property is ideal for a number of uses (subject to obtaining the necessary Planning Permission).

The second holding comprises 23.47 hectares (58 acres) of lands at Ladytown, all currently in grass and laid out in 7 divisions. There is frontage onto the R445 and also a local road. A compact 3 bedroom bungalow is included in this section (in need of renovation).

Speaking about the properties Clive Kavanagh of the selling agents expects good interest levels considering the prime location, accessibility and the quality of the lands. He also states that there might be some long term development potential with the holdings so they could suit land bankers, or pension funds looking for suitable opportunities with growth potential.

Jordans are quoting €12,000 per acre for both holdings and the Auction is scheduled for Wednesday the 18th April 2018 @ 3pm in the Keadeen Hotel, Newbridge (unless previously sold). Additional information is available by contacting Paddy Jordan or Clive Kavanagh on 045 – 433550.





COTTAGE AT POLLARDSTOWN, THE CURRAGH, CO. KILDARE ON C. 0.7 ACRE


FOR SALE BY PUBLIC AUCTION 
ON THURSDAY THE 8TH MARCH 2018 @ 3PM 
IN KEADEEN HOTEL, NEWBRIDGE, CO. KILDARE (ups)


Situated approximately 200 metres from the world famous Curragh Plains and Moorefield GAA grounds, this is a great location in close proximity to the surrounding towns of Newbridge (c.2 miles) and Kildare (c.3 miles).  Good road and rail links are closeby with the M7 Motorway access c. ½ mile at Junction 12, bus route and train service from Newbridge or Kildare. 

The property comprises a single storey stone faced cottage with slated roof containing c.498 sq. ft. (c.46.24 sq. m.) incorporating a livingroom, kitchenette, 2 bedrooms, toilet (in annex) standing on c.0.7 Acre site. 


The Vacant Site Levy which was established under the Urban Regeneration & Housing Act 2015 is likely to have ramifications for all owners of Vacant sites with the first year of billing due in 2019 for the preceding year at a rate of 3% of the market value in Year 1 rising to 7% after that (as outlined in Budget 2018).

There is a perception that this will largely only impact the owners of sites in Dublin or other large cities but this is not the case and as soon as June of this year owners will start getting notifications in the post that their property has been entered on the list.

A practical example of this is that we recently sold some residentially zoned lands in a Provincial Town which is unlikely to be developed in the short term.  If you apply the 3% levy to the current value the liability will be €13,000 in Year 1 and €30,000 in Year 2 so this matter is rapidly going to become a serious issue for landowners.

There is still some uncertainty around the exact working and implantation of this levy but we have set out below some initial questions with answers in summary form.  For anyone looking to read the relevant Act it is available on the link below http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/eli/2015/act/33/enacted/en/pdf

How a site is deemed vacant:
Vacant sites shall be entered on the register where they have been vacant for a minimum period of 12 months from January 2017 to January 2018, have an area in excess of 0.05 hectares, are zoned for either ‘Residential’ or ‘Regeneration’ purposes and are consistent with the criteria as set out in the Act.

Details of Vacant Site Register and when it will be available for inspection:
It is a requirement of the Act that properties are entered on the register including details of location, site area, ownership and market value which will be available for public inspection. From the middle of 2018 sites should start to appear on Local Authorities listings for Public review.

Timescales:
Planning Authorities will notify property owners before 1 June 2018 that their sites are being placed on the register. Thereafter the owner of the vacant site will be liable for payment of the levy in respect of each year until the site is no longer vacant.

Objection to entry on Register:
When notified by the planning authority of its intention to include a site on the register, a property owner may object to the proposed inclusion and can make a submission to the planning authority within 28 days. Pending the outcome of this and if the site is still to be placed on the register the planning authority must notify the property owner of the decision and the owner may, within 28 days, appeal the decision to An Bord Pleanála.

Calculating Cost of Levy:

The planning authority is obliged to determine the market value of a vacant site as soon possible after the site is entered on the register, and at least once every 3 years thereafter, and notify the owner accordingly. The owner may appeal this valuation to the Valuation Tribunal within 28 days of the notice. Subject to the right of appeal on a point of law to the High Court, the decision of the Valuation Tribunal is final.

 The Planning Authority or the Tribunal on appeal may, where it considers appropriate deem a vacant site has a zero market value where –

A.    No market exists for the site or

B.     The site is situated on contaminated lands and the costs of remedial works exceed the market value of the site.

What if there is a loan on the site:
Where a site is entered on the Register and subject to a loan the levy shall be amended as follows –

·         If the loan is greater than the market value then a zero per cent levy will apply.
·         Where the loan is greater than 75 per cent but less than 100 per cent of the market value then a rate of 0.75 per cent will apply.
·         Where the loan is greater than 50 per cent but less than 75 per cent the levy will be 1.5 per cent.

Any unpaid vacant site levy becomes a charge on the property and will remain a charge until such times as it is paid in full. The obligations to discharge the levy and provide the Certificate of Discharge apply to the Vendor and also the Vendor’s Solicitor acting in any disposal.

Summary:

A number of key questions (outlined below) still remain regarding the workings of this levy and we are awaiting clarification from both the Local Authority’s and the Department of Environment & Local Government on same.

Ø  Is the presence of a current Planning Permission sufficient to deem a site not Vacant or do works have to be commenced?

Ø  What if the site is in an area where there is a lack of public services for the site to be developed ie sewage, water, does the levy still apply?

Ø  What happens if it is uneconomical to develop a site and you can prove this, does the levy apply?

I strongly advise that owners review their land holdings if affected and carefully consider the future asset management of same. Once more information becomes available it will be easier to accurately assess the likely levy due on various properties but this is certainly happening and the first bill is going to arrive in 12 months time so people need to plan in advance. If anyone wants to discuss in more detail please feel free to contact me.

INTRODUCTION:

The start of a new year always brings with it an abundance of economic reports, outlooks and projections on future demand, supply, prices and trends. This will be evident across the entire property market including agricultural land over the next number of months and with headline grabbing prices and broad averages it can often be difficult to determine the real market fundamentals as to what is actually happening.

In Jordan Auctioneers our practice is primarily based in the Leinster Region and there are obvious variations in the price of land from County to County. Applying an average rate across an entire region can be very simplistic and although it can be referred to as a benchmark the variations on same can be substantial.

Overall the agricultural sector had a challenging year across the various enterprises. It was a positive year for the Irish dairy sector with a dramatic recovery in the milk price leading to an increase in national production of 8%. Finished cattle prices marginally increased in 2017 but the industry remains very vulnerable to fluctuations while Cereal prices remained at historically low levels even though there was a general increase in yields and some reduced input costs. Poor weather was a factor across all sectors with July, August and September extremely wet putting added pressure on farmers, particularly tillage operators.

The Brexit referendum result and depreciation of the Pound Sterling against the Euro has created an immediate competiveness challenge for the Irish agricultural sector and this is unlikely to be resolved in the short term until further progress in made in negotiations between the various sides.

Obviously confidence within an industry is an important factor in lands sales and prices but this is less so in Ireland than other European Countries. In Ireland there are many other emotive and additional factors that affect the price of land and serve to keep it at a relatively high base value. One of these is obviously the limited supply of agricultural land traded on a yearly basis (0.5% of total land area). An interesting statistic is that the average field in Ireland gets sold once every 400 years outside of a family compared to once every 70 years in France! The historical obsession with land ownership in Ireland and the limited supply has always kept a floor on prices even when the industry is going through difficult times.

THE LAND MARKET:

2017 proved a successful year in Jordan Town & Country Estate Agents with agricultural sales and acquisitions across a wide spectrum and totaling about 2,000 acres. Prices ranged from €6,000 to €20,000 per acre. This is where the application of an average becomes difficult. Each property has its own strengths and limitations which impact on the price achieved. Some notable features of the market and key determinants of price were:

§  Quantum and quality of land being offered remains a key factors in any sale. Large land holdings are more in demand than smaller parcels unless you have a number of adjoining farmers who are looking to expand and willing to bid against each other. Quality is always a key ingredient with land and considering the number of bad winters and summers experienced in recent times selling poor or marginal land is very difficult.

§  This is the first year we noted more land being purchased with bank lending. Up to now a lot of holdings had been bought by the remains of development or Compulsory Purchase monies. While lending terms and conditions tend to be strict there has been a freeing up of capital for land purchases by farmers assuming they have a good track record, strong business plan and plenty of security.

§  The variation in price is considerable and depends on a number of key factors as already outlined. We sold land from less than €6,000 per acre up to €20,000 per acre. The application of an average can be dangerous and the specific characteristics of the property are of fundamental importance as to where the value range lies.

§  Buildings, either houses or yards are not adding considerably to the value being achieved. Land is being priced by purchasers on a per acre basis and while buildings may complete a package and increase its attractiveness they do not necessarily add to the end value.

§  2017 saw the return of the ‘hobby farmer’ for smaller holdings and this is likely a result of improved economic factors with many companies and business people doing better within their own industry. In many instances these people come from a farming background and are looking to have a house, yard and some land for their own interests.

§  The perception of land as a ‘safe haven’ for cash considering the experience of the collapse of the Celtic Tiger and the investment markets has meant many people earning low interest rates on money and subject to DIRT tax and bank charges continue to see land as a safe place to ‘park money’ while either farming it in the interim or leasing.

§  Some farmers bought lands in the recession on the edge of Towns and Villages which are now zoned for development. An important consideration for anyone in this category is the new Vacant Site Levy which is coming into force this year and will impose a 3% charge of the market value of the lands in year 1 rising to 7% in year 2. Further investigation is recommended by any owners affected.

THE OUTLOOK 2018

Predicting values heading into 2018 is difficult but we envisage continued strong demand for good quality land and plenty of activity. Confidence in the dairy sector is high at present and therefore lands close to a number of strong operators is likely to command good interest.

The re-emergence into the market of the hobby farmer for smaller holdings, particularly where there is a residence and yard could act as a driving force for this type of asset especially where they are close to good transport links and have accessibility to the main employment hubs.

Values in our opinion will be specific to the property itself and therefore good advice whether buying or selling remains very important so there are no false aspirations or misconceptions as to what might be achieved.

Brexit does create uncertainty but for many farmers they are not prepared to wait or put plans on hold particularly if they have the financial means to purchase and land comes for sale close to them. The rise in prices across the dairy sector has resulted in a considerable investment in new parlours, sheds and facilities. Although this could create financial pressures for some it also indicates a confidence and determination to try and develop their business through more efficient practices and expansion.

Agricultural land in Ireland will always be traded and in demand due to our emotional affiliation and inbuilt desire to acquire it. The market is certainly one of the most stable assets classes within the property market, assuming of course that it is bought at realistic levels. The added bonus that land is a finite resource and unlike other investment products cannot be wiped out by external factors will mean that it will continue to be perceived as a safe haven for money even if the return is minimal. Farmers remain hugely ambitious, prepared to work whatever hours needed to make ventures viable but informed and sensible decision making is still a key ingredient for success.

240 acres (97HA), Ardanairy, Brittas Bay, Wicklow
In one of the largest agricultural land sales in County Wicklow Jordan Auctioneers successfully sold 240 acres at Ardanairy, Brittas Bay Co.Wicklow on Thursday last by Public Auction for a figure of €1,650,000. The purchaser is believed to be a Wicklow based farmer and the figure achieved was well in excess of the guide of €1.3m.

The property was situated 3km from the M11 Motorway (Junction 19) at Jack Whites Cross and was offered for sale in 3 lots and while there were several interested parties for each section it was the entire which secured the highest bid.

The land was all in grass divided by the local road into Lot 1 which extended to circa 131 acres and Lot 2 which comprised 109 acres adjoining the European Golf Course. The land was generally in need of some work and a portion was part of a Special Area of Conservation (SAC).

In 2008 just prior to the economic collapse a major tourism resort had been planned on the lands to include a hotel, 18-hole golf course, holiday cottages, health spa, fitness centre and sports academy. The idea was to turn Brittas Bay into a year-round tourist destination with a diverse range of activities and facilities but the Planning Application was subsequently withdrawn before a decision was due and it now appears the land will continue in agricultural use.

Speaking after the Auction Paddy Jordan of the selling agents commented that ‘the quantum of land was a major selling point and although it required considerable work to increase its production capacity it is difficult in Ireland to buy a large block all together’

WOODVILLE & MEELICK
PORTLAOISE
CO.LAOIS

Before a packed attendance on Tuesday last Jordan Auctioneers offered for sale Woodville House on 18 acres and 100 acres of agricultural land at Meelick Portlaoise, Co.Laois. The land was offered for sale in 3 lots and while there were several bidders for lot 1 & lot 2 it developed that the entire was making more and this was put on the market at €1,300,000 before being sold for €1,350,000 to a local farming family. Jordan’s had guided the 100 acres at €1,000,000 so the sale price of €13,500 per acre was a strong reflection both of the market and the quality of the land.

The entire was located a short distance from Junction 17, less than 3km from Portlaoise town centre with approximately 80 acres in one block with two farmyards and a further 20 acres on the opposite side of the Motorway.

Next up was Woodville House which adjoined the above lands and this opened with an initial offer of €500,000 with two active bidders. The property was placed on the market at €610,000 and a number of further bids were received before the hammer dropped at €630,000 to a Solicitor acting in trust on behalf of an undisclosed client.  Jordan’s had been guiding this lot at €625,000.

Woodville, owned by the Odlum family was described by Jordan’s as a charming Georgian Residence with courtyard and Gate Lodge on c. 18 Acres of parkland and amenity grounds. Built originally in the 1800s the residence comprises c.5,000 sq.ft of accommodation and whilst in good repair required some upgrading.


Speaking after the Auction Paddy Jordan said ‘both properties had generated substantial interest throughout the marketing period and while the house did require some upgrading it was in a good location surrounded by splendid mature timber and within close proximity of the M7 and Portlaoise town centre’. Paddy further said ‘the land, whilst all very good is likely to have some long term potential and although the price achieved was strong it could in time prove to be an excellent purchase’

STRAFFAN LODGE, STRAFFAN, CO. KILDARE

Charming Georgian Residence on c. 33½ Acres (13.54 Ha)
of mature timber setting with total privacy situated in the quaint Village of Straffan


Paddy Jordan of Jordan Town & Country Estate Agents is offering a most magnificent property in the Village of Straffan.  Straffan Lodge is a beautiful 5,000 sq.ft. Georgian family home in a wonderful mature setting on the edge of the Village.  Originally dating from the 1700s, it is believed that the front section dates from 1820s. 

A family called Whitelaw lived there until 1909 when it was bought by Francis Bacon’s father.  Bacon spent much of his childhood there until he moved out after a row with his father in 1926 and went on to become one of the most internationally sought after 20th century painters during his own lifetime.  The Bacon family sold it in 1932 to a well known surgeon Dr. Cahill.   Straffan Lodge was then sold to Robert Guinness in 1968 and the present vendors bought it in 1989.

Bacon’s father trained racehorses following his retirement from the army.  The painter’s relationship with his father appears to be have been strained by all accounts, though his allegation that his father, Edward was a failure as a horse trainers seems harsh.  In later life Bacon was to refer to his father as highly strung, intolerant, dictatorial and censorious.
The painter’s relationship with his father suffered further following the death of Francis’ brother Edward, not yet in his teens, the young boy was buried in the graveyard in Straffan adjacent to Straffan Lodge.  Francis’ father seemed to have blamed Francis in some way for Edward’s death, perhaps because he liked the young boy more than Francis.

The final break between Francis and his father came in 1925 or 1926 reportedly when his father discovered Francis wearing his mother’s clothes, including her underclothes.  In later life Francis was to make no secret of his sexuality but actions such as wearing his mother’s clothing were clearly unacceptable in the 1920s to his father.

Bacon left the house in 1926 travelling first to England before proceeding to Berlin at this time avant-garde City.  Moving on to Paris he later settled in England where he established himself as a painter in the 1940s.  He was born in 1909 in Baggot Street Nursing Home but his parents moved often between various houses in Ireland and Britain as well as Straffan Lodge he lived for a short time in Kennycourt House near Brannockstown.

Straffan Lodge is likely to have been part of the Straffan House Demesne (K Club) owned by the Barton Family of Barton and Guestier wine fame. 

Approached through recessed electric gates the avenue meanders through post and railed paddocks sheltered by mature timber, ensuring complete privacy, peace and tranquility.

The residence overlooks the gravel forecourt and lawn paddock which has a ha ha, ensuring the uninterrupted view.  The residence has granite steps leading to the front door.   The accommodation c. 5,000 sq.ft. includes main hall, magnificent bright Drawingroom with marble fireplace, Diningroom with antique marble fireplace, Study, Office, Kitchen/Breakfastroom with 2 oven Aga cooker fully fitted, utility.

The upstairs includes 5 principle bedrooms with 3 bathrooms, 2 ensuite.  There is a small basement which includes a gamesroom, tack room, gun room, store and wine cellar.

Outside the enclosed compact walled garden is mainly in lawn with various flower beds, herbaceous borders and climbers.  There is an astro turf tennis court.  The yard includes 2 loose boxes, 3 garages and wood storage and has a separate back avenue to the yard and stables.

The guest annexe comprises a detached 2 storey 1,340 sq.ft. house ideal for use as a granny flat, au pair or outside office and includes entrance hall, livingroom/kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

One of the most publicised and anticipated Auction to take place, west of the Shannon in Oranmore, Co. Galway was conducted last Thursday by Jordan Auctioneers, Newbridge in the Radisson Blu Hotel.

Before an attendance of about 30 people Renville House on 135 acres, home of the Lydon family since 1960 was placed under the hammer. Bidding was initially cautious & slow opening at €1,500,000 with 4 active purchasers up to €2,700,000.

There is little doubt that this was a splendid property, entirely unique considering its location on the edge of Galway Bay, close to the city, Oranmore and the Motorway. Approached via a ½ mile long winding avenue on top quality land with a charming residence (although in need of some modernisation), farmyard and Herd’s cottage.

Paddy Jordan speaking after the Auction said ‘the sale had generated huge interest since the outset of the marketing campaign and it had been one of the finest properties he had sold, particularly in terms of the reaction of viewers when they saw the quality of the land, the setting and its unique charm, there were almost no negative comments, which is very unusual’ 

Jordans had been quoting €2,000,000 prior to the Auction and discussing this with Paddy Jordan he explained ‘there was a certain X factor with the property which was hard to put a number on and really it depended on people’s individual desire to purchase, it now appears this factor was possibly €1,200,000 over the guide’

Considering the Farmers Journal Land Price Survey 2015 placed the average price of agricultural land in the County at €7,443 this result of almost €24,000 per acre will go a long way to be matched.

Paddy Jordan at the commencement of the Auction commented that there are ‘three key factors when buying a property, location, location, location’ and this result certainly bears testament to that.

The Lydon family were delighted with the result and wish the purchaser every success in a property they have so many fond memories of.

Griesebank House which has just come to the market with Jordan Town & Country Estate Agents is an unusual and historic Quaker House lying just outside the Village of Ballitore in Kildare, on the River Griese.  Built in 1700s by the Shackleton Family as a commercial mill it became the home of the Shackleton Family and the writer Mary Leadbeater, renowned as the author of the Annals of Ballitore.  The house itself was used both on the Militia and Rebels side as a hospital in the 1798 uprising.
 Some 25 years ago the house was bought by Jonathan Irwin and his wife Senator Mary Ann O Brien. They upgraded this unique historical 18th century period residence with an adjoining contemporary wing, blending in to form a splendid family home (6,488 sq.ft.) on 2.169 acres of mature gardens and grounds.
Mary Ann is widely recognised as one of Irelands early female entrepreneurs, having created the International chocolate brand Lily O’Briens from a saucepan in the kitchen of Griesebank House.  In the same time Jonathan has created the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation that has provided home nursing care services to 2000 fragile children all across Ireland.   Jonathan and Mary Ann have spent many happy years in this cosy home raising their family, creating a garden, entertaining family and friends.

27 January 2015
Billy Grogan is a qualified Chartered Surveyor with Jordan Auctioneers and he explains broadly below the structure of leases and some important terms and provisions.
Many professionals and business people occupy the premises from which they trade under a long term FRI lease. These leases are typically for a term of 20 to 25 years and contain a host of covenants and obligations.
Once the main terms such as rent, length of lease and fit-out have been negotiated with the landlord or the letting agent, the landlord will instruct his solicitor to draft the lease. The tenant’s solicitor will investigate the title to the premises and the planning position much in the same way as if the tenant was purchasing the premises. The tenant’s solicitor will then go through the draft lease and make any necessary amendments in order to protect the rights of the tenant. Generally this process of drafting and re-drafting will continue until both sides have agreed the main terms.
The contents of the lease will vary depending on whether the premises are a stand-alone unit or a unit in part of a larger building with shared services. Leases of units in shopping centres for example, tend to include a number of quite specific provisions such as minimum trading hours, nonpermittable uses and regulations concerning window display and so on.
One of the most important things to check is that the premises set out in the lease (“the demised premises”) corresponds exactly with the physical premises the tenant proposes to trade from. For example, if there is a storage area behind the shop is this area included in the lease or does the tenant simply have a licence to store products there?
In the lease of a unit which is part of a larger building such as a shopping centre, a detailed description of the demised premises should be set out in a schedule to the lease and will normally include only the internal surfaces of the walls, ceiling and floor but not any structural part of the building. This is important as all of the tenant’s covenants in the lease, including the covenant to repair, relate specifically to the demised premises as defined.
Where the building is still in the course of construction, or the tenant proposes substantial fit out works, an agreement for lease will usually be entered into. An agreement for lease is essentially a contract where the parties agree to execute a lease in an agreed form, on the completion of the works.
FRI leases are generally for a term of 20 years but may be longer or shorter depending on the circumstances. It is sometimes possible for a tenant to negotiate a break clause where he can terminate the lease early in a specified year. Generally in order to exercise a break option a tenant will be required to pay a financial penalty to the landlord and will have to give up to six months advance notice. Legally a business tenant has a statutory right to a new lease after five years continuous occupation.
The amount of rent payable by the tenant will obviously be set out in the lease and this amount is generally payable quarterly in advance. Standard FRI leases provide for rent reviews every five years which are “upwards only”. In other words the rent on review can never fall below the rent payable during the immediately preceding five year period.
If the parties are unable to agree on a revised rent at rent review then the matter is usually referred to an independent surveyor who will either act as an “expert” or as an “arbitrator”, depending on the specific lease terms. The current Law Society standard rent review clause provides an expert or arbitrator to be appointed by the president of the IAVI, Law Society or the Society of Chartered Surveyors at the discretion of the applicant. Rent review clauses are quite technical and can have long term financial implications for the tenant. For this reason, it is important to ensure that both legal and valuation advice is taken in relation to their specific contents.
The basis of rent review is to ascertain the market rent which the landlord might reasonably expect to achieve for the premises on the open market at the date of rent review. Certain matters are disregarded on rent review such as the goodwill which is attached to the premises by reason of the tenant’s business and any works carried out to the premises by or at the expense of the tenant (other than those works required by the lease). It is important that the tenant ensures that the rent review clause reflects the terms of the lease and does not introduce artificial assumptions and disregards designed to increase the rent payable (for example, disregarding a restrictive use or a restrictive assignment clause in the lease).
The lease will only permit certain specified uses and the tenant should ensure that the permitted use is wide enough to cover its entire business. For example, if the permitted use is described as “pharmacy” this might be amended to read “pharmacy including the sale of cosmetics and use or film processing”. Also certain uses may require additional planning permission. For example, if the tenant proposes to use the premises as a convenience store with an ancillary off licence use, this will not be covered by simple “retail shop” planning. A separate application will need to be made for off licence use and this should be set out in the agreement for lease and the heads of terms.
Some leases, especially in shopping centres, have a very restricted user clause and although the permitted use may be sufficient for the tenant, the restrictions may make it more difficult for the tenant to assign or sub-let the lease to a third party in the future.
A landlord is not entitled to unreasonably withhold its consent to a change of use. However, the onus of proving what is unreasonable falls on the tenant and it is often difficult to show that the landlord is unreasonably withholding its consent to a change of use where the refusal is based on “good estate management.” This is especially true in shopping centre leases where a broad mix of uses is essential to the success of the centre.
One of the most onerous of the tenant’s covenants is the covenant to repair. The word “repair” goes much further than mere maintenance. An obligation to repair usually gives rise to an implied obligation to put the property into a good state of repair, if it is in a poor state of repair at the start of the lease.
For this reason, it is important for a tenant to carry out a detailed survey in advance of signing the lease. The extent of the tenant’s repair obligation will generally depend on whether it is taking a lease of the entire building or just part of the building: A tenant occupying an entire building is usually responsible for all of the repairs, maintenance and decoration of the building including the repair of the main structural elements such as the roof, walls and foundation. Where the building is new (or has been constructed in the past twelve years) the tenant should insist on a structural defects indemnity from the main contractor and collateral warranties from members of the design team.
A tenant occupying part of a larger building on the other hand will only be responsible for the internal parts of the property (including equipment and internal fittings) but not any structural parts of the building or anything outside the property. In this latter case, the landlord will be responsible for the repair and maintenance of the main structure and common parts of the building. The individual tenants within the building will then contribute an appropriate proportion of those total costs via the service charge provisions in their leases (see service charges).
Alienation is the legal term given for an assignment (transfer) or sub-letting by the tenant of the lease to a third party. The standard FRI lease contains a covenant preventing the tenant from assigning or sub-letting without the consent of the landlord, which consent cannot be unreasonably withheld. Again what is “unreasonable” depends on the circumstances. For example, it would be reasonable for a landlord to withhold its consent where the incoming tenant is not of adequate financial standing to pay the rent and comply with the covenants in the lease. There will normally be a total prohibition on assigning or sub-letting only part of the property.
In a lease, sub-lease or assignment to a limited liability company, the landlord will generally require a personal guarantee from one or more of the company’s directors.
Most leases distinguish between structural and non-structural alterations and exterior and interior alterations. Generally, tenants are not permitted to make alterations or major works, which would result in the demised premises losing “its original identity”. Internal, non-structural alterations, alterations to any shop fascia and alterations to signage are usually permitted subject to landlord’s consent, which consent should not be unreasonably withheld. The extent of the alterations permitted will usually depend on the nature of the demised premises. Even if the landlord does consent to the proposed alterations, the tenant may also require other consents such as planning.
