Fancy buying your own Kildare castle - Sallins Lodge due to go under the hammer with a €398,000 price tag

Sallins Lodge

Sallins Lodge is a historic three storey residence - offering prospective home owners the perfect project to get their teeth into.   

This unique period home, with gardens, outbuildings and stables, is located on a large site beside Sallins village close to the banks of the Grand Canal.

The property is believed to have been built in its current format between 1780 and 1830, incorporating the Norman Sallins Castle which was built on the site in the mid-12th century after the Norman conquest of Ireland.

Accommodation at Sallins Lodge is spacious, with five double bedrooms complementing the generous ground floor reception rooms and many further rooms below-stairs in the basement.

The accommodation is boosted by the large stables with loft which would be ideal for conversion subject to planning permission. It is presented for sale requiring modernisation but with all the elements required to create a magnificent residence.

Accommodation comprises briefly entrance hall, morning room, drawing room, kitchen, five bedrooms (two en-suite), bathroom, dressing room, basement scullery, hallway, hotpress room, butlers room, laundry room, toilet, and oval room.

This fine property has an AMV of €398,000 and will be auctioned on Wednesday March 13 at 3pm in Lawlor’s Hotel, Naas.
