Four-bed home with 78ac farm
A 78ac farm with an imposing four-bedroom residence located between Castleplunkett and Castlerea in Roscommon is on the private treaty market with a guide of €500,000.
Located 3km from Castleplunkett and 6km from Castlerea, the farm includes a range of outbuildings and 78ac of ground that needs attention. According to auctioneer, Seamus Cleary, the house is about 200 years old.
The accommodation includes a sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and four bedrooms. According to Mr Cleary, it is in good condition but could do with modernisation.
Behind the house is an old concrete courtyard with a garage and numerous traditional sheds, including a cow byre, stables and storage sheds. Behind that again is a modern cubicle shed with accommodation for up to 80 cattle.
Laid out in 10 fields, the farm has up to 370m of road frontage. According to Mr Cleary, the land needs "a nice bit of work" to bring out its full potential.
