Geashill on the Offaly Laois border is what one might call an eclectic farming area.
All branches of farming are represented in the locality from forestry to drystock, dairying and tillage. A 93.5 ac residential farm at Coolagh, Geashill, on the Offaly side of the county divide includes tillage, grazing and bogland. It comes to auction with a guide price of €900,000.
Geashill itself is a lovely village located 13km from Tullamore and 13km from Portarlington and the farm is located in the townsland of Coolagh.
Tullamore Auctioneer, John Mollin of Property Team Mollin Estates describes the land as good quality flat ground laid out in five divisions with good fencing and a permanent water supply.
Approximately 20ac of the holding are in tillage with 60ac in grass and just over 3ac in active bogland. A stream runs through the land between the tillage ground and the grass. There is also road frontage on to a side road and the main road.
The house is a modern bungalow built in 2004 and extending to 1,300 sq ft.
The accommodation includes an entrance hallway, sitting room, sunroom, a kitchen/dining room, utility, family bathroom and three bedrooms, one of which has ensuite facilities.
The house is finished with PVC double-glazed windows and can be heated with oil or solid fuel.
