A 34ac residential equestrian farm at Grangeclare, Oristown in Co Meath will interest buyers looking for a manageable equestrian holding within shouting distance of Dublin. After being on the private treaty market for some time, the property is now coming to auction and is guided at €500,000 by Smith Harrington auctioneers.
Located 13.6km from Navan, 9.6km from Kells and 8.5km from the M3 motorway, the property is at the heart of a strong farming area and less than an hour's drive from the capital.
The house is a modern, timber frame, stone-fronted, dormer bungalow. Built in 2006, the accommodation includes an entrance hall, sitting room, downstairs toilet, a fully fitted kitchen, a conservatory, a bathroom and five bedrooms of which three have en-suite facilities. The house is spacious and finished to a high specification and has potential for development as part of an agri-tourism enterprise.
There is a substantial range of outbuildings on the property.
These include a stable yard to the front with 14 stables and staff accommodation in the form of a metal-framed, stud wall construction that comes with two bedrooms, bathroom and a heating system. There is also a small sand arena and turn out area.
To the rear is a large yard with another temporary residence with a five years planning permission as a worker's cottage.
The equestrian facilities include an American barn with 10 stables and a loft, a 2,800 sq ft shed, a horse exercise area and wood-chipped gallops that run around the boundary of the farm. There is a natural water supply at the rear boundary.
