Built in 1984 at Loughill, Cloonacool, the property is described by local auctioneer Roger McCarrick as top quality land with road frontage on two sides.

It is currently used mainly as an equestrian property and comes with a 40m x 20m sand arena and extensive farm buildings located 50m behind the house.

These include 40ft x 13ft open sheds, a hayshed with double lean-to and a lofted area.

The house itself has a hallway, sitting room, office/playroom, kitchen/dining room and utility room on the ground floor. Upstairs there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The house is surrounded by a well-maintained garden and has expansive views of the fabled 'fairy hill' Knocknashee.

The property is located in a well-populated rural area, two miles from Cloonacool village, six miles from Tubbercurry and a 25-minute drive to Sligo town.

The well-known Woodlands Equestrian Centre is located only 200 yards from the house.

Meanwhile, Mr McCarrick has put a guide price of €120,000 on a 21ac farm located at Cloonlumney, Ballaghaderreen, Co Roscommon.

Originally a 26ac residential farm, the house and five acres have already been sold, leaving just agricultural land on the market.

Located just 1.2 miles from the N5 main Mayo-Dublin road, the farm can be sold as one lot or divided into different parcels. It is situated four miles from Ballaghaderreen, six miles from Charlestown and 10 miles from Knock Airport.

The land is naturally divided into two parcels: a 6ac block of good quality land and a 13.5ac block with potential for a residence, subject to planning permission. This block has a derelict stone building.

The same agent is also handling several sales in Co Sligo, including a 10ac block of land at Powellsboro, Tubbercurry.

Described as top quality land, it has a guide price of €150,000.

Finally, Mr McCarrick is also selling a 35ac farm at Gurteen, Co Sligo. The non-residential farm has an old traditional farmyard and a guide price of €200,000.

All enquiries regarding the sales should be directed to Roger McCarrick and Sons Real Estate Alliance on 071 918 5050
