A SCENIC location isn't the only advantage for a compact residential holding in Co Wicklow.

Situated in Kilqueeny, Avoca, the 25ac farm comes to the market guided at €500,000.

The farm is run by its current owners as a suckler and sheep unit but selling agent David Quinn, of Quinn Property in Carnew and Gorey, said, because of its size, it would make an ideal hobby farm.

The property, including house, land and a range of outbuildings, will go to auction next Tuesday in the Wooden Bridge Hotel, Arklow.

"It's a real gem of a property in a very popular area," said Mr Quinn.

"It's ready to go and doesn't require any new investment."

The farm is just one mile from the village of Avoca in an elevated position off the Ballymoneen to Castlemacadam road. It is around 2.5 miles from Woodenbridge and 6.5 miles from both Arklow and Rathdrum.

The four-bedroom dormer residence extends to around 1,600sqft and was built in the past 10 years.

It is approached via a short laneway but it also has gated access onto the Ballymoneen road. Accommodation includes entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, utility room, shower room, bathroom and four bedrooms.

A hardcore drive and lawn surrounds the house, and there is ample parking to the front of the property. There is also side access to the rear, a lawn area, wooden shed and boiler unit.

The spacious farmyard, close to the house, has a range of outbuildings, including a main shed and workshop built in the early 2000s and several other sheds with a lean-to.

The land is laid out in permanent pasture, divided into eight divisions that are well watered and fenced in addition to the natural hedgerow.

The farm has a 'disadvantage' classification for area aid purposes, but the entitlements will not form part of the sale.
