Dream opportunity for equestrian buyers and hobby types as Tinahely parcel goes to auction

The Wicklow/Wexford border is not only renowned for its natural beauty but is well known for its good land.

A tasty 27ac residential farm at Killaveney, Tinahely, Co Wicklow with new stables and outbuildings is sure to attract a wide range of customers when it comes to auction on July 20. Quinn Auctioneers are guiding the sale at between €500,000 and €550,000.

Set in rolling countryside, the property is located 3km from Tinahely off the main Tinahely to Gorey road.

The farm is 16km from Gorey, while it is within 14km of Arklow and 80km from Dublin.

The property was developed about 10 years ago from a green-field site, with the residence, stables and outbuildings finished to the highest standards.

The house was built in 2005 in traditional farmhouse style, but includes all the conveniences associated with modern living.

The accommodation includes four bedrooms, one ensuite, a bathroom, a large entrance hall, sitting room, living room, kitchen with pippy-oak units and granite worktop. The homestead is approached from the road via a gravel avenue and has a gravelled parking area to the front. The grounds have been very well kept and include mature lawns and shrubberies.

To the rear is a cobbled back yard with patio area and stone paths and a garage/workshop. Behind is a stable yard with three large stables and tack room with a concrete yard.

There is an extensive farmyard with access off the main driveway that has accommodation for up to 100 cattle.

All the sheds were built in the past 10 years and include a six-span slatted shed, with rubber mats, and a five-span loose shed with concrete floors. There is a large concrete yard which includes a parking area, holding pens and a cattle crush.

The lands have been reseeded in the past three years, were limed this year and are divided into three divisions that are nicely fenced.

David Quinn of Quinn Properties said it is a turn-key property that is generating lots of local interest. It will be offered in lots and as an entire when it comes to auction. The house and stables on four acres will form one lot, while the 23ac forms the second lot. These possibilities are attracting hobby farmers, equestrian buyers and local full-time tillage and grass farmers.

The auction takes place on Friday, July 20 at 3pm at the auctioneer's Carnew offices.
