A lovely residential dairy farm with rural tourism potential has come to the market near Boyle in Co Roscommon. The 78ac farm is to be sold by private treaty with a guide price of €750,000.
Rushfield House at Croghan is located 4.8km from Boyle and 12km from Carrick-on-Shannon. The property is all in one block with extensive sheds and a farmhouse in top class condition.
The holding was farmed as a dairy operation up to recently and, according to Liam Farrell of DNG Farrell Carrick-on-Shannon, the owners have retired from the business having sold the milk quota a number of years ago.
"This was the home place where the owner's mother lived who ran it as a country farmhouse catering business for many decades," explains Liam.
"The owner had a lot of work done on it recently intending to let it out for self catering but changed his mind. The result is an extensive house in excellent condition," he said.
The residence is accessed by a private roadway.
The accommodation includes an entrance hall, a reception/dining room, a sitting room, a conservatory with an ante-room, a recently renovated and redesigned kitchen that incorporates living and dining space.
Some lovely renovation work was done around exposing stone and brick features.
