Cloncoose holding potential
Pieces of land near towns and villages are still attractive to a range of customers, some are sought as additions to existing farms while others are bought as long-term investments.
A 53ac holding located at Cloncoose, a mile from Longford town and just off the N4 at the Ballinalee roundabout, is generating a lot of local interest and among potential buyers from the neighbouring counties of Roscommon and Leitrim.
The property will be auctioned and has a guide price of €5,000-6,000/ac.
Described by auctioneer James Quinn as having great potential, the holding is laid out in one block and in a number of divisions.
The ground could do with some attention and would need to be ploughed and reseeded.
A certain amount of reclamation work would be necessary to bring the farm back to its glory days.
"It has the potential to be a great little farm with ready access to water and to ESB," said Mr Quinn.
