Midlands farm on 155ac comes with three-bed stone cottage
Roscommon auctioneer John Earley is handling the sale of a 155ac residential farm located between Roscommon town and Athlone.
The sale is being guided at €850,000, or just below €5,500/ac.
The property currently has a bid of €750,000 on it.
Located seven miles from Athlone and four miles from the well known Hodson Bay Hotel, the farm was bought in the past by a quarry company which failed to get planning permission for the development of a quarry.
The land is described by Mr Earley as mixed, with 40-50ac near the road said to be of the best quality – decent ground with good road frontage.
The rest is high, stony ground, ideal for wintering cattle.
The farm comes with an old three-bedroom cottage and no farm buildings of note.
