Quick sale expected for ready-to-go Offaly 50ac

"If ever a piece of land was worth over €10,000/ac this is worth it," said Peter Scully of GVM Tullamore.
High praise indeed for any land in the current climate but Mr Scully is confident that a 50ac parcel of tillage ground at Geashill, Co Offaly, is worthy of such plaudits.
Located three miles from the village of Geashill and 10 miles from Tullamore, the land is set out in three adjoining fields, all with extensive road frontage. Currently under corn, the land is well fenced with its own water supply.
The land is for sale by its owner who, according to Mr Scully, has looked after it well over the years.
"Any prospective buyer will have nothing to do except open the gate and start farming," he said.
Speaking of gates, each of the three fields is accessed from the road by its own gateway along a half-mile stretch of road, with two fields of around 12-13ac each and a third running to 25ac.
The property is for sale by private treaty and there is already much local interest in the land. It is expected that customers will include local farmers seeking to extend their holdings or those in search of a substantial out-farm. It is also expected to attract customers seeking to establish a small residential farm.
GVM is open to any offers in excess of €10,000/ac and the auctioneers expect a relatively quick sale of the land.
