Agent expecting a successful sale for coastal farm
BUSINESSMEN and farmers in equal measure have so far accounted for the expressions of interest in a Gorey holding that's come on the market.
The 54ac holding's proximity to the Co Wexford coastline is one of the key factors widening the appeal of the land at Mount Alexander.
Auctioneer Denis Howell, of Warren Estates, who is handling the executor's sale, said the property is only a mile and a half from Gorey and a five-minute drive from the popular resorts of Courtown and Ballymoney. It is also within one mile of the M11 motorway, between Dublin and Rosslare.
He's offering the land in its entirety or in several lots, which could appeal to farmers with adjoining land, and quoting a guide price in the region of €8,000-10,000/ac.
There are no entitlements attached to the land.
Mr Howell describes the property as "a nice block of land" and it comes with around 700m of road frontage onto two roads.
The land is heavy during the winter and is excellent grassland or suitable for winter cereals. At present, around 22ac are under winter wheat and the remainder is all newly reseeded grassland.
