Commuter belt farm for auction in Meath
There has been little land on the market in the greater Dublin area recently so it will be interesting to see what a 34ac residential farm at Fleenstown, Baltrasna, Ashbourne in Co. Meath will make when it comes to auction next month.
The property is being guided at €700,000 for the entire.
The farm is located 4km from Ashbourne town centre, 2km from the M3 motorway, which links to the M50 and 20km from Dublin Airport.
The property includes a six bedroom detached family residence and a yard and agricultural outbuildings.
The land is currently set in crops that will be ready for harvesting in August.
According to Lynn Lynagh of Ashbourne auctioneers, REA Grimes, the new purchaser will have full use of the lands from the end of August 2015. The residence is described by Ms Lynagh as a well proportioned six-bedroom bungalow on approximately 3ac. The ground floor accommodation includes an entrance hall, a living room with bay window, an open-plan kitchen dining area with a fully fitted kitchen, a utility room, a large reception room, a study/bedroom, the main bathroom, and an ensuite bedroom.
There are three bedrooms on the first floor. While the house is in good condition, it could do with some modernisation
The outbuildings include a garage and a number of lean-to sheds suitable for multiple uses. The land is made up of the best of Meath tillage land. It is level, free draining and accessible from decent road frontage.
