Location is as important in farming property as it is in residential and this 48ac residential farm at Donaghmore on the outskirts of Ashbourne in Co Meath is ideally situated given its proximity to Dublin. The property is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €1.5m.

Just 2.5km from Ashbourne, the farm is 12km from Swords, 17km from the airport and 20km from Dublin city centre. The tillage holding is set around a 3,500 sq ft modern house and comes with frontage on to two roads.

While the majority of the ground is in tillage a 3ac parcel divided from the rest by the Broadmeadow river is in grass.

The house (pictured) is a fine spacious residence. Finished in redbrick it includes a portico entrance leading to a foyer with a elegant wooden staircase at the centre.

The property is accessed through a wrought iron electric gateway and tarmac drive.

To the rear is a spacious enclosed patio area and another garden while to the front of the house is a grass paddock.

The land is described by Mr Smith as the best of Meath ground. It is mainly in one tillage field that has produced crops of barley, potatoes and turnips.

There is easy access for machinery with more than 500m of road frontage on to the R135, the old N2 and on to the R125 Swords to Kilcock road.

Located on the boundary of the Ashbourne Local Area Plan, Mr Smith believes the place could have development potential down the road but, as of now the holding is for sale as a fine house on a decent parcel of ground.

Lively interest is anticipated from farmers, hobby farmers and families in search of a house with space for a few ponies within striking distance of Dublin.
