Full house expected for Wexford sale
A guide price of €8,000-9,000/ac is being quoted for a 73ac residential farm at Tomagaddy, Ballycanew, Gorey, Co Wexford which goes under the hammer today (April 28).
Located 3km south of Ballycanew, the property is 11km from Gorey and 8km from the coast. It has plenty of road frontage as it is divided into three lots by the public road.
The land is described by David Quinn of Quinn Property as having no waste, being free draining in the main with some slightly heavier land along the eastern boundary.
Up to 55ac are currently in tillage with 18ac in grass. The farmyard is set in the middle of the property. Mr Quinn says that while the holding has hosted a tillage enterprise of late it could easily be converted to dairying.
The farmhouse stands on an elevated site with coastal views. The accommodation extends to almost 1,120 sq ft on two floors and needs refurbishment.
Outside there's a small garden area with two poly tunnels, while the yard has a range of sheds and a number of stone out-offices.
The farm may be sold as an entire or in three lots. One lot comprises the house on 35.5ac with the sheds and out-offices. The second lot comprises 32.5ac with 14ac in tillage and 18ac in grass. A 5ac piece makes up the final piece.
David Quinn expects a full house for today's auction (3pm) at the Ashtown Park Hotel, Gorey.
