Post-auction sale for 24ac Fingal holding
A 24ac plot of land located at Ballmadun, Fingal, near Ashbourne was withdrawn from auction last week at €300,000 and sold later for a higher figure to the highest bidder.
The property had 100m of road frontage and an 8ac portion was zoned for a residential care centre.
A further 4ac section was zoned for infill development, with the remaining 12ac zoned as farmland.
Phillip Byrne of REA Coonan's Maynooth described the land as excellent quality free-draining ground that was in stubble at the moment.
The bidding opened at €250,000 and, with three bidders in the running, offers reached €300,000.
As no further bids were forthcoming the property was withdrawn and was sold later for a higher sum.
Meanwhile, 20ac at Baldonnel Little, Rathcoole, Co Dublin was sold under the hammer for a handsome €15,000/ac.
