Wexford land that sold for a massive €25,000 an acre
Property continues to command a wide array of prices in the southeast with recent sales producing results ranging from €6,000 to €25,000/ac.
A period house on 10ac with a substantial range of traditional and modern sheds at Ballydaniel near Camolin sold at auction last week making €690,000 or more than €250,000 over its guide price.
The house and yards were originally attached to an 82ac tillage farm that sold for €1.36m last summer.
The period residence dates back to 1840 with an extension added in 1960. Reached by a short avenue the house is surrounded by a range of well kept old outbuildings and gardens.
The accommodation includes three reception rooms, a kitchen, five bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The outbuildings are made up of traditional stone-cut outhouses, some of which have been converted for office use by the current owner. Across the road from the house is a walled area that includes a glasshouse, raised beds and a wildlife sanctuary.
There is also a range of stables, sheds, cattle accommodation and cattle handling facilities. A more modern farmyard with an excellent array of outbuildings has a separate entrance.
At auction selling agent David Quinn opened proceedings when he accepted a bid of €300,000.
