147ac project has plenty of potential
Residential farm at Ardagh is in need of an extensive refurbishment, but comes with 7ac of Sitka Spruce forestry and a €600,000 guide
A substantial 147ac residential farm situated between Longford town and the picturesque village of Ardagh has come on the market with a guide price between €600,000 and €700,000.
Located at Aghintemple, two miles from Longford and two miles from Ardagh, the property is described by Dillon Murtagh of Mullingar-based selling agents Murtagh Bros, as a fine holding that could do with some work.
It includes a residence and yard on 96ac of land that is mainly good grazing ground and it also includes 7.22ac in Sitka Spruce forestry.
A 51ac parcel of more marginal land is divided from the main farm by the old Longford to Mullingar road. The property can be sold in lots or as an entire.
The house is a traditional two-storey farmhouse with accommodation that includes four bedrooms. It has been unoccupied for several years and needs extensive refurbishment.
The first lot to be offered for auction will be the 96ac, including the forestry, the house and the yard.
This land has plenty of road frontage and the yard is of the traditional kind with some useful sheds but overall it is quite dated. A guide of between €6,000 and €7,500/ac is quoted for the better land.
The second lot comprises more marginal land with good road frontage.
