Keen bidding for Meath residential holdings
Two elegant properties in Meath recently sold at auction for impressive prices.
The first property to find itself a new owner is a 100ac residential holding at Ginnetts Summerhill in the heart of Co Meath's horse and cattle country. The holding was bought under the hammer for €905,000.
Located 3km from Summerhill and 8km from Trim, Ginnetts was renowned as a horse-breeding farm having produced RDS champion 'Ginnetts Nadia' in its day. Its achievements were not confined to the bloodstock sector as on the livestock front the farm was also home to a pedigree Limousin herd.
The residence is an old Georgian house with accommodation that includes two reception rooms, a kitchen, a sunroom and five bedrooms.
Out of doors the farmyard is home to a series of traditional buildings including five stables along with modern sheds and cattle handling facilities.
The lands are described by Stephen Barry of Raymond Potterton auctioneers as top quality ground in old pasture with plenty of road frontage and an internal farm roadway.
At auction the farm was initially offered in lots.
The house on 27ac opened at €400,000 and was bid to €500,000 before it was held while the remaining 73ac opened at €350,000 and held at €380,000.
