?1m property near Creggs
There is plenty of activity on the farming property market at present with the many substantial holdings for sale including a 155ac residential mixed farm near Creggs, Co Roscommon.
The property includes a period house, 'Kilbegnet', in need of restoration and a traditional farmyard with some relatively modern sheds. The property is for sale by private treaty in lots or as an entire and is guided at €1m.
Close to Dunamon Castle and the River Suck, the farm is 3.5km from Creggs village and 16km from Roscommon town.
The two-storey house includes 14 rooms, but is in need of complete renovation. Auctioneer John Earley says it will present the prospective buyer with "a challenging, but rewarding restoration project".
Situated in a renowned farming district, the gently undulating lands have been well managed and maintained and are serviced by an excellent road network – 112ac are in tillage, 13.2ac in forestry and 29.7ac in grass.
The farmyard includes an old world lofted courtyard, a four-bay hay shed with dual four-bay lean-tos, a four-bay machinery shed, a silage slab and cattle-handling facilities that include a crush and pen.
According to Mr Earley, the quality, location and setting of this farm speaks for itself: "This is without question one of the finest and most renowned farms of land to come on the market for many years in the region," he says.
