30ac on Cavan border
Since the late 1970s, the rural areas of the northwest have become home to writers, artists and people seeking to create a new life.
It also sustained an active agricultural community and it is to be expected that a cross-section of these interests will be drawn to the sale of a cottage on 30ac on the Leitrim/Cavan border.
The property comes with a guide of €135,000, or €4,500/ac.
Auctioneer Gabriel Owens, of Ballinamore, is selling it by private treaty.
Located at Cronera, Carlough, Ballyconnell, Co Cavan, the land is described as typical Drumlin ground suitable for grazing or forestry. Indeed, a 10ac parcel of the land is planted with five-year-old forestry.
The fences and the land generally need attention but there is a plentiful supply of natural water and 500m of frontage onto the Blackwater River.
Buildings include a three-room traditional cottage in reasonable condition.
According to Mr Owens, the farm has great potential and could be developed as a hobby farm or as an addition to an existing enterprise.
