Executor sale brings pair of Meath aces to auction
Published 23/08/2011 | 05:00
A number of attractive smaller properties have come on the market in that lovely part of Co Meath around Trim, Ballivor and Summerhill.
An executor sale brings together two properties, a cottage on one acre at Pubblestown, Kildalkey, and 34.5ac with a derelict house and two barns at Cloncarneel and Kilmurray.
The properties are located about five miles from Trim and three miles from Kildalkey.
In advance of the estate being auctioned at The Property Exchange, Trim auctioneer Thomas Potterton is guiding the cottage at €70,000-75,000 and the 34.5ac at €7,000-7,500/ac.
The cottage has been unoccupied for some time but nevertheless it has great potential. A three-bedroom traditional structure, it has a kitchen/living room and bathroom. It is on an acre site, which gives plenty of room for expansion and for the development of gardens. Also included on the site is an old two-bay haybarn.
A 34.5ac holding located about one mile from the cottage is part of the estate being disposed of by the executors. The land is good quality grazing ground in permanent pasture.
Laid out in four fields, the lands have their own natural water supply. While there is no road frontage with the property, as it is located in a cul-de-sac, there is an old derelict stone farmhouse on the land that should be of help if the new owner should require planning permission for a residence. There is also a two-bay portal shed and a two-bay haybarn with the property.
The pair will be sold in one or two lots at auction in The Property Exchange on Monday, September 12, at 3pm.
