The farm has 50m of access onto Market Street in the town with 230m of frontage on to a well-maintained laneway.

Stephen Barry of Raymond Potterton auctioneers describes the place as "a superb farm of top quality well elevated free draining land, exceptionally well located within the townboundary of Cootehill."

The lands are entirely in productive old pasture nicely laid out with no waste.

At present the place is being zero grazed by a local dairy farmer and is in top class condition.

It comes with a fine farmyard that includes twin four-column sheds with silage walls and double lean-to's fitted with cubicles on a large concreted yard with feed troughs and cattle handling facilites.

The former Glebe House stands at the centre of the farm.

The building is in need of complete renovation but has the potential to make a beautiful property in private surroundings and adjacent to the town.

Mr Barry describes the property as offering excellent investment potential having a lapsed Planning Permission for 300 houses and commercial development.

The holding will be sold at auction on Wednesday, October 19 at 3pm at the Errigal Country House Hotel, Cootehill.
