When it comes to property in the Royal County a 164ac residential farm at Collierstown, Tara is about as royal as it gets. This elevated land is situated on a level with Skryne and the Hill of Tara and comes to auction with a guide of €2m.

Located just off the M3 
motorway close to Navan and Dunshaughlin the farm will be sold in lots or as an entire.

The house (above) is a solid two storey structure which has been fully modernised inside with finishes and fittings that include a four door Aga cooker, laminated flooring and PVC windows. The accommodation includes an entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen, utility, bathroom and four bedrooms.

The extensive yard includes a seven-bay machinery shed with a lean-to, a separate lean-to shed, a three-bay hayshed with double lean-to, a lofted shed, a disused milking parlour with a herringbone milking layout and an open silage pit.

A three-bay slatted shed with drinkers and ESB is located on a site somewhat away from the house and the yard.

Aside from a 3ac piece located across the road from the house, the lands are laid out in one block.

Half of the land is under tillage and half under grass, with multiple access points from the extensive road frontage on two roads. A stream running through the land provides water and the fields are fenced with carefully maintained fencing.
