71-acre Meath farm sells for €100,000 above the guide price after brisk bidding
A 71 ACRE farm with a substantial house and extensive yards at Bellewstown, Navan, Co Meath sold under the hammer last week for €870,000, exceeding its guide by almost €100,000 and making more than €12,250/ac.
Situated between Navan and Trim, the farm is home to a sizable stable yard and 71ac of top quality land. The residence is a two-storey farmhouse built in 1913.
It is in relatively good condition, according to John Harrington Jnr of joint selling agents Smith Harrington, and is "liveable in" but needs refurbishment.
The yard is made up of a number of fine modern buildings on a concrete surface suitable for bloodstock or livestock.
It includes 12 loose boxes, a tack room, a three-bay hay shed, a seven-bay sheep shed, a lean-to and two other storage sheds, while adjacent to the house is a car garage.
The land extends to 71ac and is made up of good Meath grassland laid out in six fields with good fencing and water.
There is substantial road frontage on to two roads, with 260m on the Commons road and 825m on the Bellewstown road.
