Interest is growing in a 38.5ac farm with a derelict residence and yard located at Grange, Bective, Navan, Co Meath.

The property has full planning permission for a five-bedroom dormer bungalow, and is not attached to a local need requirement.

Ronald Duff of DNG Ronald Duff is guiding the private treaty sale at €400,000.

The farm is located about two and a half miles from Navan, two miles off the M3 and adjacent to Garlow Cross.

The land is in four divisions that are well sheltered with natural boundaries and a natural water supply delivered by a stream at the back of the property.

The ground, currently in stubble, is described by Mr Duff as the best of arable ground suitable for tillage or grass.

Originally a Land Commission holding, the cottage on the farm is derelict but planning permission for a five-bedroom dormer bungalow is proving a huge attraction, Mr Duff said.

Very often such planning permission is predicated on the owner of the house having a particular need to live in the locality.

No such restriction applies to this property, providing it with a substantial customer base.

Mr Duff is expecting a wide range of interested parties from local farmers looking to expand to people seeking to move out of Navan.
