Scenery a big draw for established 'gem'

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.
