LAND in the midlands has been fetching strong prices this year, with auction hammers falling regularly on both large and small parcels of land.
Paul Murtagh of Murtagh Bros is hoping the trend continues as he brings to auction a substantial 118ac residential farm at Moyvore, located near the Westmeath border with Longford's Ballymahon. The Co Westmeath property comes for sale with a guide price of €700,000.
Kilgawny house and lands are located about 16km from Mullingar, off the Ballymahon road. The residence, a traditional farmhouse, dating back 100 years, is currently occupied and in lovely condition throughout. The accommodation includes a living room, sitting room, three bedrooms, a kitchen and a bathroom.
The outbuildings are of the traditional kind with no modern farm facilities, while there is a large garden area around the house.
The farm is set in a lovely rural setting and is approached by its own avenue with some fine stands of trees at either side. The 118ac is divided between 87ac of grassland and 31ac of forestry. The grassland is described by Mr Murtagh as old pasture laid out in a number of large fields and renowned for its fattening qualities.
The holding is in one block and easily managed.
The property will be sold at auction at the Greville Arms Hotel, Mullingar at 3pm on Thursday, July 2.
